If they're asking for an invoice, or a rpint out of the payment form: WATCH THE FECK OUT!.. Lie, say it was a gift, no invoice, no payment info.

They know it is from a store... Can I say my friend works there and it was a bday gift? No clue if there is an invoice in there with it. This has NEVER happened to me...

Was it sent from within the States?.. They might ask to add taxes (NY citizens pay extra taxes on stuff, no?).

I recently got hit with a customs bill on a fairly large IH order that came to my place.
Apparently, UPS covered it then billed me.
The tariff rate on a cotton t-shirt is 16.25%!

They took the declared values straight off the invoice that was attached to the package.  I'm pretty sure you have to declare a value so There's probably something on there...

What is the cheapest material I can say it is? It is actually a nylon type outer jacket...

The tariff rates are wildly different depending on the item.  Might want to look it up.
I think the tshirts were like more than double the rate of pants...

If they're asking, there's probably no invoice in the package... So yeah: lie. But find out what they have first... Ask 'm what they need exactly, play dumb...

Custom fees really suck. If I buy a shirt from outside the European Union, I have to pay 12 % customs and 25 % VAT on top of the shirt's value (value incl. shipping and aforementioned customs!) + a fee of 30 $. A 250 $ shirt from the US would end up costing me 380 $. It's absolutely ridiculous, and they catch it 95 % of the time.
