Recently, expanding the reasonable consumption, overseas direct purchase are emerging as one of the most preferred purchase method.
Overseas direct purchases means consumers purchase products at foreign online shopping malls on internet and have them delivered to their domestic addresses.
These overseas direct purchases have been used since past and even more recent overseas direct purchases have been rapidly increasing because foreign purchasing agencies or delivery agencies for domestic customers have been sprung up, social media has been spreading, smart consumers and and the activation plan by government for overseas direct purchases have been increasing.
On the other hand, the smuggling by the overseas direct purchases have been increasing as much as the overseas direct purchases are increasing.
Reckless smuggling is a dangerous criminal conduct to be able to shake the foundation of national economy and destroy law and order in public.
Smugglers are abusing the overseas direct purchases in order to avoid paying tax. Especially, in the case of express cargo, it is difficult to identify that it is the official declaration or not when the smugglers make a false declaration. Because the goods can't be opened in real. So illegal overseas direct purchases have been abusing too.
Through this study, the methods or types of the overseas direct purchases are researched in the view of blocking drug supply among smuggling. This study suggests the alternatives to confront smugglers on the main foreign drug supplies to drugs in Korea.
This study was established in two aspects. The first is narcotics smuggling crackdown enhancements through the overseas direct purchases. The second is drug prevention and criminal follow-up provision. That information will be dealt with in more detail in the body.
Narcotics smuggling through the overseas direct purchases. was settled down to a new form of drug offenses. The overseas direct purchases itself simplify customs clearance at the government level and the supporting policies, such as expanding the range of duty-free. And because anyone can easily conduct criminal, Narcotics smuggling crime through the overseas direct purchases is also expected to increase from day to day.
However, because the drugs smuggled through its the overseas direct purchases made only through a simple Internet search, Diffusion rate and drug addiction problems with the crime has the potential to bring enormous danger to the whole country in the future.
Because control policies on drugs is practically maintenance as well as domestic institutional sector to be supported by cooperation and exchanges between countries, This paper will be of academic value as a guide for potential offenders effective prevention and blocking.
