The nice people at Border Force seized my rifle scope back in November that I was sending back to USA for a Warranty Repair, it never actually left the UK as silly old me should have provided an export licence which I didn't realise I had to send!. Several months, letters and phone calls later I am still without scope or any idea of their intentions of restoring the goods to me. I have several times explained that it was an oversight on my part (no other reason for not providing an export licence) and I have no intention of trying to send it again as I will look to getting the repairs done in the UK now.
My question is does anyone have any contacts in Border Force Postal Seizure Unit, Plymouth that would be able to help me. I have tried phoning their number quoted on the seizure letter several times (between 10am and 1pm only!) but it is constantly engaged. The Border Force at Castle Donnington where the scope was seized were sympathetic to my cause, but it is in the hands of BIS and all my correspondence needs to go via Plymouth who don't seem overly keen on helping me put an end to this I have contacted BASC, however their advice is to keep sending letters weekly until I get an answer but at between £3-£6 a pop recorded or special delivery this is really starting to make my wee wee boil.
Any help appreciated (by PM if you would prefer).
