    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not about travel. – gerrit Oct 28 '16 at 13:34

    This question is clearly not about price-shopping for specific goods, the majority of the vote-to-close votes are voting to close for the wrong reason... – gerrit Oct 28 '16 at 13:35
  • I vote for reopening too, the question as written has nothing to do to price shopping. What real customs do when you don't have enough money to pay duty - they hold your package for some time (and you're charged for storage). If not claimed within certain time frame, it becomes the property of State and auctioned off (or thrashed if little value). This seem however to be a typical Nigerian scam - the OP should expect a request to "send the duty amount" via a Western Union. – George Y. Oct 28 '16 at 20:21
  • Agree with @George, this sounds like a typical scam. Have you met this friend in person? 'Sent through their account' I guess means you don't have access to the tracking information and signature if it was received (or indeed even shipped or possibly redirected). Also if it was sent on a genuine business account it would normally be delivered and the fees billed. – Spehro Pefhany Oct 28 '16 at 20:54
  • While this question may be closed for the wrong reason, it needs some editing to its body. I’m having a hard time deducing what it’s asking (but that could be the 4 a.m. effect). – Jan Nov 2 '16 at 3:18
