I'd never heard of customs charges before. Whose fault is that? If everyone knows about these magical charges then why, in nearly 10 years of my family's eBay shopping (within the UK & from abroad), had I nor anyone else in my house heard of these charges? Sorry for not being all-knowing but maybe they should teach it in schools or actually have her majesty's revenues & customs do something about educating people on taxes we are expected to pay.
Sorry to go off-topic again, WhoNA, but being called out for something that wasn't my fault but yet something that I still owned up to being wrong to kind of p#sses me off.
