Bodyline U.S. Buyers Beware. You take a gamble with hidden fees.

You've heard the horror stories, well here's mine. I mainly wear real burando to conventions and meetups, but for work I was buying what I thought were bargains from Bodyline. I have only ordered from them 3 times. Each time I have been through DHL HELL. I have HAD it with them for not using EMS.

1st horror story: I got picked randomly and was harassed by DHL for my Social Security Number. After a month of phone calls and complaints they sent my package back to Japan because I refused to give out my personal information. It is against the law for them to ask that. So I got my package months later.
2nd horror story: The second time I ordered, everything seemed fine until SURPRISE, 3 seasons later I get a U.S. customs bill for over 35 dollars for that package. If I had KNOWN they'd charge that surprise fee I would have bought REAL BURANDO. 
3rd horror story: The 3rd time I bought from them, before I even GOT my package, a U.S. customs fee bill came in the mail for over 35 bucks. 

The surprise DHL fees + shipping fees cost me more than the items! I'm sticking to used loli clothes for casual wear now, and slightly higher Cosmates for anything from Bodyline just to avoid the stupid DHL hell. Just thought I'd warn you all.
