SOS! Third World Customs
Does anyone here know a customs broker or someone at the Bureau of Customs in the third world? I have a package coming in from the US and the whores at Saks screwed up with the customs declaration form and forgot to add a dot before two zeroes, so what looks like $XXXX.XX now looks like $XXXXXX, which is totally ridiculous! The fuckers at customs want to charge me a mortgage and a leg in duties and taxes and I bet you my fat arse they’re gonna pocket them. I really hate the third world! I don’t understand why they base their taxes on the "declared value" instead of the item and worse, they have NO common sense at all! Where have you seen clothes in the 6 figures sent via mail? That’s just absurd. The people at the post office told me the only thing they could do is send the package back to the sender and have them correct the form with the TRUE declared value. The post office sending it back? Like HELL THAT’S GONNA HAPPEN. The last time I got a package from Amazon ($200 in books/cds) I ended up paying over $150 in taxes! I’m fed up. SO. FED. UP.
If you have a contact, please call/text/share +63.915.785.1492. My package is stuck in Makati Central Post Office, fyi.
