GetHuman2996708's Overcharge/Strange charge issue with DHL Express (UK) from May 2019

Help with my DHL Express (UK) issue
Top Tip from another customer
If you are looking for a refund you should call into the company as the best option is to talk with a representative about the charges. If it is fraud you should call in to cancel your card and request a refund.
The issue in GetHuman2996708's own words
I made an order from Zafel. They are shipping it via DHL express. I did not supply my mobile phone number. I have received two texts from DHL. The first says that my package is coming by the *rd June. The second says that I have to pay import duty*tax for the package and supplies a web address. When I enter this on my computer, it says that I owe £**.** before I can get my package. It looks legitimate. When I enter tracking information from DHL myself, there is no mention of this charge and it says the package is on the way from Hong Kong to Luton. If I have to pay the tax that is fine but how do I know this is legitimate. There are lots of warnings on the DHL site about scams but not my exact one.

How GetHuman2996708 fixed the problem
I called DHL on thwie **** number which is expensive, but they were pretty efficient and quite quick. It was indeed correct that I owe £** on some clothes from a company in China called Zaful. They enticed me into free express delivery by ordering something else and then slapped on **.* % tax of their own and VAT was charged in the UK. Buyer beware. I will not be buying from then again. The worse thing is they only sent half the order so looks like I will have to go through it all again. I only spent £** in total and I still haven't received the goods. However if you don't pay, Zaful will charge you a massive fee to send it back and VAT*duty entering China. I will not be ordering from them again.
