| | Re: Overseas Shopping Customs Fee
I avoided this issue by purchasing everything and having it sent to my home address and my brother later shipped it to me. After customs contacted me, I faxed in my receipt saying that it is my property because I purchased it in the US and outright became my property when it was shipped to my home. It was no longer an overseas purchase, but categorized as personal property. They accepted this and I had no fees to pay, especially handy because my laptop was expensive.
