I have paid a lot of money for customs charges over the years, but this actually hurt just to read.

Especially London .

I feel like I'm in some kind of experiment to see how far a society can be pushed before it implodes .

dude, don't be like that. not everyone complains about import taxes and not every country has harsh limits. send stuff to australia... if it's under $1,000 declare true value and no import fees to be paid. what's the problem?

but still, no one should complain about a seller acting the correct legal way, especially if they haven't specifically requested something different, like Rupert said.

Gambling in Vegas isn't for me, but shipping overseas as $0/gift is quite a rush!

Customs charge today.

V.A.T £78.54 + a Clearance Fee of £8.00 = kick in the nuts!
