Just got off phone with the vat/customs people , nice calm speaking lady explained to me why it is perfectly ok for them to charge me for second hand goods .........nice that eh
Now I feel so much better about the whole thing
She did say that
americans tend to overquote on insurance so if it was I just send the customs slip + copy of item ebay page + copy of the paypal receipt to them and they will refund any difference in the VAT and customs charges.
Seems that customs work on the insured amount , always worth remembering
