Jerseys, eh....Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

I dabbled in some jerseys in my younger days as well, but I got a wife and a kid now, so I got nothing for you.

Can you take a picture of your yellow cocaine bricks next to your jersey packages?

Hey yea, you shipping in 200 jerseys and trying to resell them can without a doubt be classified as shipping in commercial items. If you did not declare that they were for commercial purposes they may take them because compared to general importation of goods, commercial items have a much higher duty.

Can you also get into the shot, and have a big smile on your face, holding up one of each?

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if they were doing an investigation into an order like that.

if you're lucky... you'll get them in a week or two, but considering the amount, i have a feeling that you'e S.O.L!!!! re-selling illegal merch is a very serious issue, especially with stuff coming from china.

good luck, i think...

fyi; i got my ONE jersey in 2 weeks... no issues

Wait, so according to some people in this thread, it's not ok if this guy is attempting to sell a fake product but it's completely ok if it comes straight from a Chinese sweatshop to their house?

I ordered 9 jerseys at the start of Jan and my jerseys went thru customs in about 2 days. people seem to be confused about why you would even try to ship 200 jerseys, but what Im wondering is... how do you plan on selling them? the olympics are over bro and 90% of the population already has those exact jerseys, dedicated bootleggers had these fakes months ago and were selling them at C-Train & Sky train stations across the country for 100 bucks a pop, isnt it a bit late to try and cash in?

Think of it like drugs, is it worse to import a kilo of coke with intentions to sell to your friends and family or to buy a couple grams to use yourself?

I will not comment on the legality of the product, but just from your story it seems obvious that you have tried to use the personnal import process and regulations

Importing 200 jersey would be deemed a commercial activity and as such you should have provided the necessary paperwork (custom invoice, through bill of ladding, certificate of orign if applicable and import permits for apparel if also applicable).

Unfortunattely for you they all arrive at the same time, which provided CBSA enough evidance to raise a red flag. Spitting up the shipmment into smaller size to avoid these requirement could be seen as an attempt to circomvent the regulation and you could be charge with fraud, you material could be sezeied and/or they could issue an AMPS (administrative monetary penalty).

Considering both are illegal, and you would probably get the same amount of time for equal amounts of drugs, I don't think the intentions matter.

We're talking about pieces of fabric and cloth. To say there is a difference in you paying a Chinese website for personal use or paying said website to turn around and sell the exact same product is a bit silly and hypocritical.

It sounds like you are breaking several laws.

It's obviously a commercial enterprise. You will have to pay duty on these. If you want the items to get through faster you will need an importers account #.

Not only that you are probably being flagged by the CRA. You obviously intend to turn a profit on these jerseys, and I doubt you intend to pay taxes on that profit.

These are obviously fake jerseys. It is illegal to import unlicensed products.

Good luck on this.....

It's obviously a charity project. He gave a job to several Chinese children and now he intends to give the jerseys away.

I didn't know Antonio Cromartie was buying jerseys for each of his kids.

That's so nice.
