Before I commence, I understand that I would have to pay Tax and customs duty.
I haven’t received any email confirmation from pimax with a tracking number. Checked my junk folder as well.
I received an SMS from FedEx-EXP requesting the payment of duty and taxes through a link.
The link directs to a third party service “paydollar” for the payment of fees
The tracking number in the text matches my order on the FedEx tracking website.
I have a FedEx account and nothing is listed under my account there. Nor do I have any emails in junk or inbox confirming the shipment with tracking details.
Could this be a scam? In the past when I preordered an HTC Vive I recall the process of paying duty and tax was different I got a call from FedEx directly when the shipment was in Australia before delivering to my door and I had a written email trail detailing the process.
In this case the shipment is still in Shanghai, hasn’t been sent out yet and all I got a text message out of the blue.
Is this the process other pre-order customers have followed? It might be legitimate and I’d look like an oaf here but I don’t want to risk it until I can confirm.
