I have to say once again I am confused. I was sent an invoice from a US seller for a WWI pair of medals to a Canadian, I am being asked for duty and import fees that amount to about 27.00 USD for a 100.00 pair. WTF? I have never paid this at source, always at the post office. Lately I have not paid any as I have the package Identified as Canadian Medals returning to Canada. Even when I get charged, I have been arguing it and have had the money paid returned to me. NOW with this Global Shipping Bull Crap, I do not appear to have any recourse in applying to get my refund. I was always under the impression that Import Duties are the responsibility of the BPSA and not some cheezedick shipping program.
Has anyone got any idea on this one? I have read, re-read and re-re-read the damned policies and cannot make heads or tails out of this highway robbery.
I have contacted the seller and am waiting for a reply. If they won't play ball, I will take the negative hit and pull out of the deal based solely on the principal of the whole thing. I have asked the seller to cancel the Global Shipping bullshit and send it to me through normal post. This 100.00 pair will end up costing me about 170.00 CDN when shipping, duties and exchange are all considered.
Last time I am going to deal with a US seller. This is just getting too ridiculous. Comments on this guys are really needed. Even if it si o tell to suck it up and quit whining.
