Meh. They charged me $75 brokerage fees on a Walther PPK with 50 rounds of ammo...which I got for free due to a PayPal mix up.

Yes. A gun.

Not sure if that's a UPS Win, or a UPS Fail...

$60 in duties + brokerage on a $39.99 US (aoubt $45 Cdn) guitar tuner.

Regardless how you slice it. UPS are always FAIL. Although keeping with the topic of this thread, I do think the OP got scammed and this isn't a UPS related issue. It's just dependent on UPS's extremly high brokerage fee to ensure some product sent to the intentionally wrong address won't get accepted by the recipient. UPS was just used as a tool to perpetrate their scam.

Its all about what you need done. Ya UPS and DHL are a scam coming into the country, they get fucked by the government for competing with Canada Post. For a regular hobby purchase its crazy but they serve a business sector that loves them. We get confused by these high rates and (to us) last minute charges but not the guy doing shipping and receiving for any asian car company without a manufacturing plant on continent. He tells his customers that they will have to pay out the ass for special importation of parts not on this continent.
Just my opinion on UPS in general.

UPS (stands for ultimate price scam) always fails the good thing is that if you ever received the rail there would have been a 75$ brocker/handling fee on it.....

ALWAYS insist on USPS or purolator anything else and you'll get scammed

Just an update, I purchase airsoft non-restricted parts and the seller used UPS (even though I said "NO NO NO UPS....I'll use it over my dead body")
It got denied, UPS said its prohibited. My guess is UPS refuse to ship airsoft parts...

That's not true, I had UPS deliver my first redwolf airsoft order to me a while ago in september or something.

Their are better if you are shipping large volumes of goods. DHL can't be bothered to deal with your 1 package.
