These Were the Things Customs Overcharged Me With


Update: I solved my problem with DHL.

These were the camera accessories I had ordered via DHL, and customs clearance overcharged me for. They are all basis, non-electronic, non-electric stuff. The only technological thing in my order was the RAM memory ticks, the tiny ones which are still in their plastic bags.

I added my camera and Blackberry to the 2nd shot, to show you how small the items are, and to show you how basic my camera is. It’s not a DSLR one or some other fancy kind, which would obviously have much more advanced accessories than my sorry lot here.

This was the invoice I found with the RAM sticks. I’m pretty sure anyone reading it assumed I was buying an actual laptop, and that I had somehow doctored the invoices to show a cheap price. As you can see, the bottom line does show my actual order, and actual price. Besides, couldn’t they see that there was no laptop in the box?

If this isn’t the reason for the over exaggerated custom clearance charge, then I do not accept the ridiculous amount I was forced to pay. If you check the previous post, you’ll see that someone had ordered a Macbook Pro, and shipped it using DHL too, and was charged exactly like me. That can’t be fair. How can a few things valued total at $120, and weight just 1.5 kilos cost custom charges equivalent to a $1,700, 6 kilo laptop?
