    If they're fake, Id let them destroy them. Better than being hit for a few thousand £ lawsuit. Id check with a lawyer to make sure by signing the papers to destroy them you aren't admitting guilt (which could come back to bite you in the ass)

    This personally has never happened to me, but it did to a friend of mine. Best advice I can give you is what the guy above me said, Just ignore it and take the loss versus risking legal action. When importing replica merchandise, I always assume the possibility of a seizure. If you have a decent supplier though, sometime they will reship or refund. I know mine will if this ever happens.

    They probably just did a random check. They will probably flag your name, just use a different name, and a new address. I hear the East coast customs are a lot easier to pass thru than the west coast. just a tip.
    Just tell them you didn't order any caps? I don't think they can prove all the other shipments you ordered, were replicas. Or tell them you thought they were authentic maybe? I'm not sure.

    Check with your supplier. My guess is that they are coming from China. If you can provide a Payment invoice that they are at decent prices (not fake) and your supplier can send you a certificate of confirmity (sometimes they do.. though it is fake).. then you might get them off your ass. 300 GBP is not that much for them to think they are dismantling an international smuggling cartel.. My advice in the future.. don't order such large quantities (6 by 6 usually does the trick.. you say your friend is sending them to you as a gift for your private collection)

    Yeah, I agree just tell them you thought they were authentic.
