Yep.
THey usually charge a "customs handling admin" fee and slap that on top of whatever customs want to knob you for. Its a rip off when you consider the useless service you get when using Parcel-Farce or others

Odd stuff.

Paid my charges for a s/h frame imported from Canada, using £30-ish + £10 handling fee. OK, kinda expect to pay, so whatever and just pay.

Then I got a letter through the post the other day, offering a rrefund of £7.summit as I iverpain import duty/taxes. Nice one!

But why?? :?
There is a whole world of subdifuse and secret swindling going on which I fear will never be unravelled with importing stuff..

I've been stung 4 times. twice for the same items and charged me different amounts!!!
:twisted:
But one seller help me out and put a birthday card with the parcel and it worked no charge. :D
Also the web site 'T-shirt hell' labeled my puchase 'gift' and no charge. I only payed US postage :D
One thing i do know. The seller has to be willing to help the buyer not pay charges.
