I know this is not tech but I need to rant. I just got raped by those wastes of skin 1 more time. I hate that company with a passion. Those [email protected]#n f$#&ing pieces of **** charge me $50 in fees to receive a package that was supposedly already paid for. It took them 2 weeks to deliver it. I paid less than half that to send it Express Post.

Do your friends and everybody in this world a favor and boycott UPS. Send these ripoff artist motherf#[email protected] a message.

I am the one who sent it to you. They are jerks. It took 5 times for them to pick it up, cause of formalities. I am checking into this for you. I f I cannot figure it out, I will paypal you the $50.

edit: did they say if it was billed wrong, or is it customs ****. lmk

So then next time please post it in the proper forum. It didn't belong in the 3.8L Tech section. i see no valid reason for doing so.

Thank-you.

I have had some problems with UPS also, but nothing like your talking about. On the other hand I really had some problems with this dumba** who decided to send a 50 lbs. package through USPS. When I got the big speaker it was cracked and I had to file on the insurance and it took them almost a year to get to it and they didn't even give me back all of my money. Fedx so far is the only one that I haven't had any problems with.

Their "customs fees" are ridiculous. The very thing happened to me on delivery of an item for the USA. I told them to take it back to the airport and I would clear it myself through customs. They tried to deliver it the next day and I told him to get it back to customs. It took them 5 more days to get it to the airport, a half hour away.

They were charging me $29 for a $30 item, plus Canadian taxes. That was for my Colgan car bra.

I went to customs myself and after half an hour of screwing around at UPS, I paid no duties and no taxes at the customs office.

They justify it by saying that the post doesn't charge enough and they are taking them to court to force them to charge customers. Both cust serv reps I asked about this just read some scripts and knew absolutely nothing about why.

And this was all on top of already paying $16 USD for shipping to the seller.

I'll never use them.

When you ship ANYTHING to Canada claim Less than a 10$ Value on the Item, There are no extra charges then.

Hey, if you recieve a shipment across the border, be prepared to pay duties on stuff! That is not UPS, that is Canada Customs.

I like UPS compared to FedEx. FedEx makes UPS look good with the problems I have had with them.

No, it's not Canada Customs. Customs assesses taxes and applies a tariff if the goods are rated that way.

The fee from UPS is a "Fee" for clearing it through customs for the customer. Canada Post charges half of that of UPS for a fee, if any.

In my case there was absolutely no effort in clearing through customs. 5 minutes at customs, half an hour of screwing around at the UPS office. It is an excuse for an added charge.

I GOT THE SAME THING! WTF! I baught some Ported heads from Morana Racing in Canada and well I paid the shipping fees and then I get a letter from UPS saying I owe 21.77 or some bulls**t. It also says something about they will bill my account if I don't pay...well I don't have an ACCOUNT?! I plan on calling them today to find out what the deal is. If anything I think Morana should pay it for I had to pay to send my old heads back for the core charge...and shoot that was 50 bucks!

Maybe this is a scam or something?
