Customs Show Cause Notice: Import of Adult Toy
So I ordered an adult toy from viva-awa.com and got the following show cause notice from customs; The adult toy does not represent any male or female reproductive organs. Basically can be considered similar to a door knob. Questions: 1. I tried to cancel the product after one day order after know it is foreign website but they haven't responded . Question 2: I cant appear for this notice and don't want this product. If I don't what it and doesn't appear will somthing will happen..? 3. Can I deny the charge on the grounds that it is for personal.
