you can hope in one hand and shit in the other and see which fills up faster. Once they hold it, nothing you say or do will help that other than going there directly and bribing, which would probably cost more than they are worth. Always seperate the orders so loss is not all.
same thing happened to me it sucks, i had 4 grand in cell phone stuck in customs in KY via ups. I stayed in touch with the lady at ups for a month and finally the released it but NOT to me, they sent it back to the shipper in which i had to pay like $400 shipping. Then i had to pay my shipper again to reship it, at the end i got it but whole process is slow and really sucks. I agree, always keep the orders small when coming in from china
Some of these comments make baby jesus cry, come on your not going to jail for sending 15 jerseys thru customs, they prob are not going to take um cause of the small amount of jerseys, remember its cmas, you have people sending gifts all over the world, incoming outgoing customs so your package is just held up, i know ladies who are getting 20-50 purses every other day thru customs and not a single problem, they are more worried about food, drugs, etc, but the big thing is that you didnt read up on shipping before buying a grip of jerseys, every package could be a loss, your connection in china is not really going to resend the jerseys it cost 45.50 to send 5lbs, a jersey is just over a single pound, so your looking at roughly 130 in shipping, he isnt going to take that loss, so thats why he keeps telling you 10 more days, 10 more days, but ive had packages take several weeks to get thru and those being nothing that could get me in trouble, silk ties, etc for work, but dont count on someone on the other side of the world being honest
I live in New Zealand but when i was ordering from china i always got them to write on the top "Gift, 50 Dollar Value" Or something to that effect. So that they "usually" dont open it up to see what your about to sell on ebay.
Chances are you will not get this back. You will get a piece of mail that has a green letter in telling you that they jacked your crap and there is phone and address you can contact about. if your stuff is replica stuff, i would just let it go and dont respond to anything you get in the mail. Remember, they intercept thousands of packages.
I know they are hard to find but I purchase from someone who will re-send a shipment if you provide them with a confiscation letter. But if they re-send it has to be to a different name/address. They only send airmail and I get it through DHL. They also say they also always send from different locations. They say since they send airmail from different locations that most of their stuff gets through.
I am not sure how that all works but I haven't had a problem yet
