  1. So 2 days ago my misses got a letter from Fedex saying she owes £40.69 £12 of it is a charge from fedex themselves the rest they claim is customs duty. Her sister who lives in the USA sent her a book from a company over there the book cost $14.99 which is around £11 our money. From reading it would seem that my misses can received a gift from outside the EU and not pay any duty on it so long as the item is less than £34.99. Yet fedex insist its worth higher value $27.99 and claiming an individual didn't send it the documents show the importers name as her sisters name. Fed

  3. Hi, Wondering if anyone can offer advise before we go into what will I am sure, become a battle for compensation. My business partner & I went to Indonesia in February to design and buy goods for our shop and online business. As it was our first trip doing this we took a couple of weeks to set up our contacts etc. We shipped the goods back in 6 crates. The goods arrived and were cleared through customer by a broker called Global Fallow. We organised pick up of the goods, it was very stringent and had to give the registration number and drivers details of the vehicle collect
  4. Regarding Ebay. I purchased an item from an American seller. The total cost of the item including postage came to £31. I got a card through the door today from royal mail asking me to pay a customs charge of £14.10. When I looked at royal mail customs online it clearly states on there that goods purchased below £135 would be exempt from customs duty. What should I do!?
  5. Hi My wife has received a letter today from Past Due Credit Solutions saying that HM Revenue and Customs have asked them to contact my wife on their behalf. It asks me to call a number and pay in full or if I am finding it difficult they can discuss whether I can spread the payments. It says all discussions and payments now need to be made through them. Any advice about this would be welcome as there is no way I can pay the amount that it says off and also I do not know if this debt is my wife's. Please advise? Thanks in advance.
  6. I had a replacement tooth/crown sent over from US to UK to have fitted by a dentist here. I paid in full and an extra £12 Post Office charge for Customs clearance. It broke and two weeks later the US dentist sent me a replacement tooth/crown with no charge as it was under guarantee. He put" Replacement//Under guarantee" on the invoice and I later got a bill from FEDEX asking me for £30. Do I have to pay for replacement goods under guarantee and how does FEDEX justify that charge? They blame Customs. The invoice bill is unreadable and I had to phone the US Dentist to ask what it said. How can I
  7. In October i returned from a holiday in the USA. My last port of call was Las Vegas. On my return to the UK, i noticed i had left my jacket in my hotel room in Las Vegas. The jacket was brand new and cost me £160.00 so i decided to get the hotel to return the jacket. I went into my local mail forwarding chain company (mail boxes) and asked them to collect the goods from the hotel in America. They stated no problem and arranged collection through Federal Express at a cost of £54.00 which i paid. Two weeks later i received my jacket, along with a bill for £20.00 customs charge. I ign

  9. I have been watching customs programmes in Freeview channel 11 Pick TV recently and it has given me a lot of concern. Can anyone throw some light on the following. I must admit it is probably quite unlikely to happen but \I| just wondered what would happen in this case. I have noticed that sniffer dogs go round the passengers going through the nothing to declare exit but frequently people are pulled in because the dog has found something. This could be just a simple case of a taxi driver handing the case who had been taking drugs or some similar thing like that. I was wondering what
