    A company (EGL) sent me an iPad in the mail as well as the camera lenses which I purchased from them. The iPad was packaged separately from the camera lenses but it was addressed to me and required a signature on delivery. The company then contacted me to say they were arranging a courier to pick it up from my house but requested that I do not tell the courier that the package I am giving them has a battery in it as the courier will not pick up the package. I am wondering if by lying to DHL the courier company about the battery, is EGL breaking any laws and could I possibly get into any trouble from this?

    Do not lie. What happens if the battery explodes and van catches fire and the courier company comes after you for a false declaration?

    Unlikely, but can happen.
