LiPo Battery Confiscation during shipping

I received my Electron order today, but the package has been opened during shipping and all the batteries have been confiscated. The enclosed letter form some intermediate shipping authority cites the danger shipping LiPo batteries.

I ordered four units. My order came to Australia. Has anybody else experienced this?
