Re: $96.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I've got you beat --- As I posted a while back, upon second delivery, the guy said there was no COD due, so he gave them to me.

Well, the invoice did arrive (and says it is already overdue by a few weeks...) and is totalling:

$97.55!

Entry Prep Fee $24.75
Disbursement Fee $6.00
Merchandise Processing Fee $25.00
Duty Amount $41.80


And this is for just two pair of boots. I paid about half that for the entire TDK suit which cost about twice what two pair of boots cost. I don't get it.

The one thing I'm glad to see is that UDR now uses a new courier and is charging the taxes up front so no more surprise (and inconsistent) brokerage fees. Still upsetting.

Oh, and add on an extra 6% to that because the bill says if not paid by Aug. 22nd, they tack on a late fee.

Yah- I dont know what to say about this.

He should roll EVERYONES overages into the cost of new sales (up the prices of everything by 10.00) and send back a refund to everyone who got SCREWED.

Yo, KB, talk about painful. I wont' rehash what got my boot thread shutdown at the other place but, after doing some research and calling and getting OOPS's "international shipping division" manager I discovered how OOPS manages to mint such coin and their "breakdown" of the charges.

When OOPS told you "around $60" that would probably account, about, for the 10% Customs/duty charge on the total value of the shipment. What wasn't included in their quote was the additional $35 "we've serviced you so now you're Broker" charge.

I'm staying away from this subject now. I'm sure my thread was seen as a nefarious insurgency and... well, now, for me at least, any question about deliveries is seen, uh, as trouble. But, at least for future customers, OOPS will be a thing of the past - AFTER 3Q deliveries of kit.

You have my sympathies as does everyone, including myself, who had to pay this ransom money if they wanted their goods after waiting a good time for them (and will again in a few weeks).

Peace. :bat01

What you said. That's crazy talk (OOPS' "accounting," not yours).

Re: $96.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


this is just going to be the icing on the cake for my people who already weren't thrilled with UD

so regardless of if they pull their head out of their ass on the next project and get a proper shipper who doesn't rape pillage and plunder, its not going to change how most feel about them


"your only as good as your last hooray"

and something like this instantly kills any applause that you could have gotten


as for the invoice
the only one there that makes any sense is the Duty Amount which would get paid to customs, the absolute rest of that went right into BROWNS POCKETS!

That blows keith. Sorry about that.
This does complete your Begins and TDK suit though right?
At least your done. I think that is the only positive.
At least you didnt start with sweatpants and work your way up like some of the "brothers" ha ha.
You didnt waste money outright.

Re: $96.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


No= i feel i did waste money. THe boots are nice- yes. but not ridiculously more nice than the other boots out there. Not 600.00 more nice.

I had TDK gloves, and these are also nice.. but again.. not worth it selling the old ones and now this.

this is a big bummer. I have the need for one more set of boots... Ill just be searching for herowarez boots when the time comes for another set as i feel I have already handed half of the money for them- away.
