I pointed out that there was no contract between my self & Fedex & that I had not appointed them or agreed to any terms, that was between them & the Chinese shipper. They sold the debt (15.78 FFS!) to a DCA who gave me various ways to pay, including BACS, so I paid the VAT, they had no choice��. They chased me for the 12 which has now risen to 50 due to "late payment fee". I've got the "family" on the case��

.....sh1t happens.......
Best of Luck Mate!..Sic em PD!!...

Something vaguely at the back of my head says you can pay the VAT direct to HMRC. You prove you paid it and the courier has to supply the goods.

Sounds good doesn't it. Something in the back of my head says HMRC charge 25 handling fee ;-)
