Re: Please help! I got a Zollrechnung through FedEx

View Post
Groaned because claiming that 20kg of something has a low value is basically fraud.

And apparently the customs guys view things as such.

They bill you on the value they determine to be correct, and when numbers don't match, they are NOT happy.

Also, as has been pointed out, VAT is based on value but import duty is based on other factors, including origin.

Sorry, but that's the way it works, and not just here.

Yeah, but does everyone know all this minutiae? I would guess not. So you make the assumption of fraud after reading the whole thread, or did you just assume it from the get go and groan the first post.

Customs, Zoll, Post, FedEx DO make errors as well, so itís always worth checking.

The problem with drive by groaning is that you can make people reluctant to use the forum. Sorry, but thatís the way it works here, too.
