My poor father tried to send me my son's prescription medecine from the UK to Turkey. He paid for the prescription and went to the local FedEx office and explained what was in the package and they said, "No problem".
When it arrived in Turkey the customs stopped the package and demanded $300 for its release from customs plus they said that I had to go and prove that it wasn't illegal drugs with all sorts of form-filling etc.
Speak to Fedex, no help at all. Basically you're on your own, Istanbul change their mind every day about what they decide.
So we ring to say we don't want the package can you please return it to my father...what happens, they lose it.
Yeah right, it's obviously been stolen because of the high value goods inside and not one bit of help from Fedex.
So bad - never use them please!!!
