German customs seize Schwag
June 20, 2006 | By Peter Bihr |
Valleyschwag is already preparing to ship out the next load of schwag, and guess what: I’m still waiting for shipment number 2. Damn German customs: They claim they have to evaluate the package’s value. Hello??
So in order to get my Schwag I’ll have to go see the officials (they won’t open it themselves in order to avoid getting sued for damaging the goods). With me I should bring the bill and an “comprehensible” description of the goods. Describing to some elderly customs officials that I voluntarily paid cash for stickers and a shirt advertising for companies they haven’t even heard of? Sounds like fun!
