    FastTech order failed security check

    So I just received an email from FastTech that my order had failed Australian security checking and was being returned to China.
    In there are 2 atomisers, a mod (no battery), and some titanium wire.
    Nothing in there that's illegal to import as far as I'm aware.

    Can anyone enlighten me on why it was refused, and has anyone else encountered this ?
    Thanks

    I may be wrong here but Customs is a federal government agency and it is not part of their brief to interpret and/or enforce state laws, only federal ones.

    Let's hope so. They should be held accountable for these stupid decisions. There's nothing in there that should cause customs to refuse it. I'd be asking them to explain their actions.

    Wow i would be pissed. But have you actually got anything from customs have done some reading and it seems that they prefill customs forms and its pretty much a computer glitch. I would ve thinking you will receive it in the next week.

    Didn't rodbam have the same problem not to long ago maybe a month or so.will see if i can find thread

    So check this its probably the same thing
