“Cheap Tax Evasion”

Written on: 15/06/2013 by Guest23837 (1 review written)

So yes this site is very cheap and it would appear that the products are genuine with mostly satisfied customers. The catch? Well if you read through the small print:

"2. Custom, Duties and VAT
We always packaged the order as a gift; however, because all items are sold on a Delivery Duty Unpaid basis, thus some countries may impose import duties on deliveries. Customers are responsible for any applicable customs duties or taxes that may be imposed on a delivery in the destination country."

Falsely packing a purchased item as a gift to avoid import duty is customs fraud for countries such as the UK. The responsibility for the unpaid tax as well as the offence in these cases lies with the buyer.

So, in summary: Great deals, but you will be committing customs faud. As an added bonus, the website has no encryption so I'd be wary of entering any sensitive info.
