Customs Charge - Package Already Received

    So, i ordered a small package from the UK which i received earlier this week in the post.

    Today's post, i received a customs charge to be paid - after searching the reference number, i see it was the package already received!

    Package received was £4 - customs charge is €4.87!!

    It says if i don't pay, the package will be returned to sender (but i have it already!) - do i just ignore this? Will there be any follow up on it??

    Isn't the customs value the cost of goods plus shipping?

    So €1.37 vat and 3.50 fee

    But they are unlikely to collect if you have it.
