    I have never encountered this before, Parcel Force and EMS are showing different things on tracking.

    Parcel Force:
    EMS:
    Any suggestions? Looking more and more like it has been seized to me =/

    Yeah...you will get a letter telling you to collect and a bill for the vat + Duty. Might get lucky on the cost. Last few Items I got from customs they only charged me £20

    Its quite a large package 150 units, so it hasn't been seized?

    Depends on what the Items are. When I've had that notification its been on watches I brought in from America. They are handed to customs for inspection...customs calculate the duty on the item and you get a letter from Parcelforce saying collect your item from(in my case Liverpool) and attached is your invoice for £21.85. If you are bringing in counterfeits thoughit could be an entirely different matter.

    If its legit then customs can value anything if they are not sure they will accept a plausible explanation/valuation from the customer

    They are both saying handed to customs on the 18th and then Parcelforce are saying received back and processed. So they havent been seized. You will either get an update on the tracking tomorrow saying despatched to customer or you will get a letter to collect and pay duties.
