I bought an electronic device for about £200 (GBP) from a UK online store to a nearby country where I live. When the package finally arrived, a few weeks later, it stated "£20" for the value for the customs/anyone to see.
Is it common practice to slash 10x off of the price for the customs to not add various fees? Isn't that illegal?
I will not start any problems for the store and certainly have no interest in paying any extra fees myself. Just asking out of curiosity.
Of course, they can claim it was a mistake if ever found out, but if they do it consistently, that seems difficult... Not to mention there must be electronic proof of how much each order actually cost the customer?
