USED GLOBAL EXPRESS TO SEND A PARCEL CONTAINING SECOND HAND CHILDRENS SHOES AND CLOTHES TO BENEFIT THE KIDS IN A A POOR NATIVE SCHOOL IN SOUTH AFRICA RUN BY A CHARITY.
I WAS SHOCKED TO RECEIVE AN IMPORT TAX DEMAND FOR $150 US EMAILED FROM THEIR DEPOT IN JOHANNESBURG.
HAVING CONTACTED THE LOCAL CUSTOMS OFFICES BY PHONE FROM LONDON, IN ORDER TO EXPLAIN THAT THE CONTENTS OF THE PARCEL HAD NO VALUE, I WAS INFORMED THAT THE DEMAND IS NOT OFFICIAL BUT PROBABLY A RUSE TO EXTRACT A BRIBE. AND EXPLAINED THAT AN OFFICIAL DEMAND WOULD BE ISSUED IN RAND, NOT US $??
AM CURRENTLY TRYING TO TRACK DOWN SOMEBODY IN THE UK CUSTOMER SERVICE DEPT TO EXPLAIN WHAT IS GOING ON. HAVE HAD PROMISES TO INVESTIGATE AND RING ME BACK BUT AFTER A WEEK HAVE STILL NOT HEARD A THING. I DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY. AVOID
Reviewer is in unhappy mood. This person is quite happy with price and seemed good value and stated that there is a room for improvement of dodgy extra demands for delivery at destination. Please immediately contact the author of this review to discuss problem with delivery of transglobal express delivery service and associated monetary loss in the amount of $300. Transglobal Express needs to have the product delivered according to poster's claims.
