So yesterday I received a letter from parcelforce, claiming I owed customs and handling charges for a shipment from bbts. The VAT is fine, stings a little but it's legal. The handling fee, however, is not. I'll be calling on Tuesday to pay the VAT and tell them I do not wish to pay the handling fee, and that holding my parcel in lieu of a ransom is illegal under subsections 83 and 84 of the 2000 postal act, and if they don't like it they can invoice me for the fee later. What I was wondering is, is there anything further I need to add to the above argument? I've read people do this all the time but beyond what's above I generally didn't find anything in any more detail.
