I would be very leary of this one. Unless you can see the people in person and get a cash payment up front, I would not risk it.

I actually just had tears rolling down my face I was laughing so hard. My husband had to know what was so funny, and he's now hysterical too. Thank you for that link - I needed a good laugh tonight!

p.s. Where to buy your waterproof towel and do you take the visa?

Definite scam. Get this one all the time. I write back and tell them they can pick their order up at the Police Station. Never hear from the same one again.

I liked "i am ordering from Brunei Darussalam" considering one is in Southeast Asia and the other [Dar es Salaam] is in Africa. I want to know how to be on two continents at the same time.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Love it! Glad you told "Woody Allen" off--about time someone took him to task!

I've sold out of the waterproof towels, they're a very popular item. Would you be interested in a leakless sieve?
