Customs = Criminals

| No Comments

The package that I just picked up had been held hostage by customs. Yes, hostage is the correct word here, what else do you call a fee of €8.68 on a networth of €45? Only a few weeks ago I accepted a shipment worth over USD400, and the fee there was €9.90, which is acceptable - everyone has to eat, don't they?

I really wonder what would happen if I made claims at the European Council that these taxes present an obstacle for the free flow of goods and services in the EU? Well, I have to admit that in this case, it wouldn't fly because the seller lives in Canada and last time I checked, the canadians weren't part of the EU. Maybe they should consider it though, it's not like they have much to gain from being allied with the US.

To make long stories short(er) : I've now got issue 45 and 46 of the deceased PFIQ magazine in my possession. Issue 47 was purchased earlier, and I may get my hands on other issues as well some day.

Oh, my complaint dating from October 5th concerning spam from B-----P------- NV has been accepted by the Federal Public Service Economy, SMEs, Self-employed and Energy. Hopefully that'll teach B-----P------- NV from spamming people. Updates as I get them.
