Bela nagreklamo sa taas singil ng Customs
NI: VINIA VIVAR
Sunod- sunod ang tweets kahapon ni Bela Padilla dahil inirereklamo niya ang sapatos na ipinadala sa kanya galing sa ibang bansa 3 months ago pero hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa nakakarating sa kanya. Ang dahilan? Ang laki raw ng sinisingil ng Bureau of Customs.
“A few months ago, a Spanish brand reached out to me if they can send me 2 pairs of shoes. I said yes and sent my details. They confirmed shipment in April. Last week, I informed them that I haven’t received the shoes yet.
“Apparently, our customs was charging them an addtl 10,500 pesos even if they paid for shipping through @DHLUS already,” ang simulang kwento ni Bela sa Twitter.
Patuloy niya, “two days ago I called DHL, and they said I needed to pay 9,000 and the 10,500 to receive the shoes. they also asked me to provide documents and a proof of purchase even if I explained that I didn’t buy them.”
Bukod dito ay nagdeklara raw ang Customs ng maling presyo ng shoes.
“Our customs declared the shoes to be around 500 euros. (They aren’t) I offered to provide screenshots of my conversations with the brand and the prices of the shoes. But I was told that the shoes are now considered “abandoned.”
“All the phone calls were useless and the shoes are in some warehouse right now collecting dust. I wanna know where they get these rates that they seem to pull out of thin air. This isn’t the first time. Our customs, always a rip off,” reklamo ni Bela.
Ikinuwento rin ng aktres na last year ay nagkaroon din siya ng problema sa Customs nang bumili siya ng dalawang t-shirts pero hindi rin nakarating sa kanya.
“Last year, I ordered Harry Styles merch again (my very shallow but guaranteed source of happiness) I got a notification in March that they returned my merch to the UK because they couldn’t put a value (on 2 tshirts) and therefore couldn’t tax me excessively,” saad ng aktres.
Sa huli ay nanawagan siya sa BOC regarding her shoes na tatlong buwan na raw naka-hold sa nasabing ahensya.
“Hi @CustomsPH you’ve been holding on to my things for nearly 3 months now with no answer/solution to my questions,” ani Bela.
Rant pa niya, “imagine telling a brand (that isn’t that big yet) that they need to pay 200 dollars to send somebody a gift because you say that you know the value of their shoes more than them? Hello, BOC, you guys ok?”
Bukas ang panig ng Bureau of Customs sa hinaing ni Bela.
