They might have struck up a deal with Play.

Royal Mail that is.

If they're under £18, then that's why it's considered as a gift, as they don't have to pay VAT. :)

sometimes if you dont have it labled as a gift you could be liable to import tax
#4
You are the only beneficiary, as they pay VAT on their invoices, not how they address the packet to you.

Why don't you email Play and complain so we can all end up paying for delivery in future??

The recipient is responsible for the import / VAT charges should they be deemed chargeable. So pipe down

I don't care if Play.com sent me items via carrier pidgeon, as long as it arrives fast, safe and free then it's good for me

So an unwitting person, could buy from Play, as there's very little indication they are a foreign company, buy a large order, which Play mark as gift, which gets checked, and the buyer gets hit with a large customs bill?
