Did your friend send the phone along with some money ?

No be small matter be this one

I don't know how you and this your friend run your things, did you guys speak on phone or video chat concerning this deal cause I've heard numerous scams that happen exactly like this.

Customs will always contact you through email from their official email address, did they do this ?

If you say you're sure then no problem. Is it the pro max ? Cause the charge is too high. You could ask them for a review of the price

It doesn't work that way, if they threatened you with auctioning off the phone then it's either a scam or a custom agent is trying to extort money from you on his/her own
