Exclamation Parcelforce- Handed to Customs, EMS-Released from Customs..Please Help!!!!!

Hi, im in the UK and im expecting a parcel from China. No problems the past 5 times but this time it seems weird.
Parcelforce status is delivered and Handed to Customs but EMS says released from Customs.
Does that mean its seized or is there still a chance?

In my experience, when it says released from customs it's good to go, should be at your house shortly.

Exactly the same thing for me to mate, it looks like they've clamped down hard. The CV3 4PF Attempted delivery is the customs office, so essentially it's been sent there to be destroyed. Hopefully you haven't got a massive amount in that package, because they'll probably send you a letter saying that the violation is being reported.

Hahaha you lot make me laugh! You pay a 13.50 processing fee for them to send a letter to you saying you owe customs fees.

You're also trying to work with EMS / Parcelforce? Especially if your importing foo foo you may aswell say goodbye to it.

DHL!!

What plan of action do you have for when the letters start arriving? Plead ignorance or ignore?

The image is too small to read mate. What does it say?

I got a handbag ceased and they sent a letter saying that I'd been the victim of fraud, and that they wanted me to sign a letter and return it to allow them to destroy it. That's what I did, no problems since, though I'm not touching VeRO again.

It is never worth it or the headache.....just keep away from VERO, all this foo foo. Is it really worth it...i always ship through DHL. Better service, faster, reliable and ofcourse, they are REAL. Knowing this, gives a immense peace.

My advice, just stay away from it all.

I have looked for years for the items that people say they make a killing on that are non-VERO and guess what?... I am still looking.

Margins are disgusting unless you really know your stuff.

Just got off the phone to UK Border Agency and they confirmed that my package (sent by EMS) has been seized. First time this has happened to me. Hopefully it is the last.

Considering paying the extra shipping costs to go through DHL as everyone UK based ITT has recommended.
