Looking for information about courier services

 Hola Todos: I have been reading some disturbing things lately about courier services (USA Valet in particular) and problems experienced by them at Guayaquil Airport in regard to Customs (penalties, fines, confiscation). Courier services have been around a long time... and courier services still advertise their services (AP Shipping, Expat Pony Express, Cuenca Express Mule Service, Expat Envoy). But why now are there problems at the airport? With all courier services, or just USA Valet?
What gives?

-- Are courier services legit, or not?

-- Why are some courier services still advertising their services if you run the risk of not receiving your goods due to problems with customs?

-- Is the problem with courier services, or Customs?

Any info would be helpful as I want to make sure that if I use a courier service I do not wind up behind the eight ball.

Thank You.
