    Ok guys. I just ordered something from America from a reliable looking trader who has plenty of good reviews and even looks legit.

    The package went through customs and reached me, and the box was obviously checked by customs and someone had opened it and re-sealed it.

    The problem was that I received the packaging and NO WATCH. I also noticed that the seller wrote less than half the value of the watch on the outside receipt to try and dupe customs. I didn't ask him to do this... and I think as a result, the watch was stolen by British customs.

    What do I do in this situation!? Do I file a complaint against the seller?

    Contact him and explain you didn't receive the watch and try to sort it out with him first. If he doesn't want to play fair then report him and try and get your money back from Paypal, they're normally very protective of the buyer (when really they should look at each case and act accordingly).

    It is his fault if he was trying to dupe them, sort it out with him. If he is not co-operating kick his arse.

    I'm going to Boston and New York in a couple of weeks, if he is around there, I will get a baseball bat and fuck him up for you!

    I sent a civilized message to him asking what he thinks should happen, and that its possible that it's his fault for writing $35 for a far more valuable product. If he doesn't cooperate, I'm using the report function.

    Bummer, they would not have taken the watch without informing you stef, they would have sent you some paperwork and kept the whole package!...

    Well, I'll give the seller a few days as they're an ebay shop and said they'll contact the manufacturer for a new one, but I highly doubt they'll get one. My main argument for a refund is that they wrote a way lower value, which may have prompted someone at customs to take the item due to insurance only covering up to the value the seller wrote. It's illegal to write a lower value as it counts as fraud, and I never asked them to do so, I was expecting to pay custom tax.

    Yeah, that makes it hard to do anything regarding customs, but it was the senders fault not yours...
