I was sent a parcel as a gift.
This was a small parcel from Australia to the UK.
Somehow, duty and tax were applied to this.
Several letters demanding additional money were send to my work address. I was asked to pay £14 tax and a whopping £10.50 FedEx fee on top of this.
I paid the tax as a matter of goodwill.
I was still hounded by FedEx and threatened with legal action unless I also paid this ridiculous fee. Make that fee proportional!
I have now paid both, and learned the lesson to never deal with FedEx and to recommend others do not either.
Monetary Loss: $50.
