Nope.  The USPO money order is the ideal way to transact business on the
net.  The fear of Federal Mail Fraud investigators is a excellent way to
keep people in line. 

But MORE IMPORTANTLY, UPS want you to pay for the box BEFORE you are
allowed to open it.  Obviously, the guy could send an empty box or stick a
brick in it if there should be some weight.
