This proposed class action has been brought on behalf of all individuals in Canada who paid an invoice from FedEx Canada that included charges for at least one of a “Clearance Entry Fee”, “Disbursement Fee”, or “Advancement Fee” in connection with a shipment received for personal, family or household purposes.
The action alleges that FedEx is violating consumer protection legislation by making misleading and deceptive representations regarding the fees it charges consumers who import goods into Canada. The main allegations are that FedEx fails to disclose the existence or amount of the fees it charges until after consumers have received a shipment, and misrepresents the nature of the fees by implying they are government-levied when in fact they are not.
The action seeks, among other things, to recover the fees from FedEx for consumers.
