Hate to be the bearer of bad news but I think the $25 is a legitimate fee.

I just spoke with FedEx who told me that the $25 was the fee that U.S. Customs charged me on the S/C, therefore because I told them that the FedEx agent that spoke to me back in April told me that no customs charges were going to be charged to me, the lady I spoke with went ahead and canceled the $25 plus $5 fees so I owe nothing now.
