I’m having extremely shitty experience ordering 200+ raisers and 50 PSU connectors from Cryptomined.
Currently after 7 days it’s still stuck at the customs (Tbilisi, Georgia) due to faulty shipping documents and it’s yet not clear how much it will cost me in addition to what was paid, especially considering that he’s doing nothing to mitigate the situation.
LAST UPDATE 25-SEP: I still have not received the shipment but the end is near. So far after arriving to Georgia on Sep-21 I went to DHL the next day to initiate the expertise (apparently they couldn’t start it without my live signature) to determine the real cost of the items. Which could take up to 14 days, but due to some connections I had to engage it took only 4 days, so now the real items cost has been determined at about 850$, and I already paid the expertise cost - about 25$. Also I had to go to the Revenue Services and issue Georgian tax id, since I’m no resident here. Now I’d need to pay 18% custom duties on 850$, while it should be freaking 0! Also the last step would be to bring the now privately owned raisers to the tax free zone, which requires some more logistics and paperwork.
UPDATE 12-SEP: Currently I need @cryptomined to provide me contact information of his supplier in order to change the AWB and Invoice recipient to the company name instead of a person’s name (or do this himself)
If the recipient would not be changed either I will need to fly there and initiate the customs clearance or I’ll need to issue the power of attorney and send the originals with an express mail.
In any case there will be an expertise at customs that will identify the items and determine the real cost, which would require fees for the expertise in addition to taxes and storage fees.
UPDATE2 12-SEP: Changing my plans with intent to fly into Tbilisi due to the need created by @crapformind
Beware!!! After getting your payment he’s willing to do zero effort to help you, his customers.
Actually there were indications that he’s quite irresponsible even before I wired the funds, which I missed due to my “positive bias” toward the “same community member”.
Even more, he’s so incredibly ignorant that his reasons for not doing the things that he was asked and promised to do: 1-you never asked and 2-you don’t need it. Seriously.
From the beginning he was asked specifically “Not to send anything before providing copies of the shipping documents that I need to get approved by our customs broker” - nothing. Numerous times after the shipment left he was asked to provide these docs, he promised to do so, yet he didn’t. (see conversations below)
He was asked several times to make sure (I have NEVER seen the AWB to even check what’s written there!) that the name on the delivery address is a company name, which is apparently NOT. (this I still need)
The invoice issued by the guys (someone that actually ships “his” goods) and sent with the shipment says that the shipment cost is around 100USD, which is total bs, and customs officials apparently agree. (this one I can fix now with $ loss)
When I told him on Sep-7th that I need him to send me these shipping docs, because the customs clearance has been stopped due to faulty documents, this was his reply:
they will contact you if needed
and you are freaking out over nothing”
He was repeatedly told that I’m not in the country that the goods just arrived to and if anyone would contact me, I wouldn’t be able to do a thing, yet he cares none for this.
Currently due to me being “too demanding” for his taste he wrote me an msg letting me know that he will not communicate with me anymore, because “I’m a dick” and I “insult” him because of my inquiry if he’s high, when he suggested that I should not worry instead of providing me with the needed (and promised on multiple occasions) docs.
@cryptomined Please contact your partner and ask them to (EDIT: approach DHL and change the name of the recipient to the company name on the invoice and the AWB) never work with you again.
