Uncle Sam Took My Radio

I ordered a TYT UV8000E on Amazon, and apparently it had to be shipped from China. After learning it had been delivered I contacted the seller and received this. 
Hello there
We are very sorry
When we check this order, we find that this order is intercepted by the federal government may not arrive in your location.
We are sorry, please rest assured that all the losses are borne by us, we will immediately refund the total amount of this order.
I hope your understanding and forgiveness

Following..... I was planning on ordering a new radio or two, but have heard similar issues from other people.  Not just your model, but radios from other manufactures and models too.
