Tony,
That is the risk with purchasing from the Belgium Pro-Shop.
Usually you will not see that charge, it seems to be pretty rare.
I had a customer who ordered the AirStream Course Bluetooth a month before its U.S. release and he got hit with a rather expensive $112.00 Customs charge.

I wouldn't recommend "not paying" because you don't want U.S. customs on your tail.

Best,


Michael

I had to pay the customs charge for my Bora back in July. SURPRISE!

The net savings after shipping and tax compared with buying locally was only $75.
