    I’ve read something similar before, I’m sure it was on here. But I was only slightly curious, so don’t recall the details. Meaning – I think you’d be dealing with a Bulgarian Businessman.

    I sent a GPS loaded with GB maps to Bulgaria last year. Was cautious at first. But sent it anyway. Everything was Fonzy cool.

    Has he paid postage to Bulgaria? If not, then keep.

    Cancel and relist.
    Naughty to ask you to ship to Bulgaria.

    Well that’s gone and buggered my plans to remove all the road signs to stop the east European invasion! Bloody fifth columnists.

    That the confuzzling bit – I have two addresses for him. One UK on the ‘sold’ page, and Bulgaria on the invoice I sent.
    hmmmm

    A mate of mine has just bsent stuff to Russia but it went through a middleman here in the UK, think that was in Surrey.

    By all accounts there are a lot of these middlemen in the UK, overseas buyers can get stuff sent to a UK address and then it’s shipped out when they get bulk mail to go.

    he pretty mush stated that if it doesnt get to Russia through this method it’s tough. He has dlivery confirmation to the address in Surrey.

    Just sold some boots on eBay. Main ‘sold item’ page gives an Access self storage place in Surrey – but his invoice is asking me to ship to Bulgaria!…
    I think I should cancel – specifically said UK only.

    STW, Bulgaria, Self Storage, Surrey : all rang a bell for some odd reason. Anyway, have a read:

    Basically it seems ok – bizzare as that may seem. Looks like twoniner is on the money re UK middlemen.

    #Edit – obviously be cautious. I’m not involved with either sale so I dont know if its the same chap / setup etc.
