    Default Having products shipped to you with over 200$ value

    About 5 years ago I had a business selling high end women's clothing, shoes, purses etc (louboutin, chanel, louis vuitton) , and a lot of people overseas including Dominicans would buy purses or shoes that were over 1000$ and ask me to change the price on the invoice/receipt. Could it be that they were able to have them shipped in and avoid the ITBIS over 200$ with that tiny change? Do you think this would still work? I need to get a new phone and paying 30-40% above its value is out of the question here.

    I wouldn't risk it. They seem more sophisticated and organized now than then.

    Hard to imagine a pair of shoes costing over $1000.

    They WILL catch you/them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Then you will have to pay the custom's duty THEY set, or lose the item.
    Neither are a good option!

    The ebay sellers will put an invoice with any price you want.

    If you can afford to pay 1000 bucks for shoes, quit your bitchhing and pay the tax. I complain about 20 dollar shoes.

    Never had an issue when buying parts and accessories for a RZR. Guess I am just lucky.

    I have got by with a fake invoice many times. But it was always a product that was strange to the Customs people. For example if you order a Samsung Galaxy 5 with a fake receipt they will get you for sure, but a Chinese cell that they never heard of that cost more than $200 will get by.
