Concerning the shipment,the likes of UPS,FEDEX and POST OFFICE always don't take care of the charges down here. Charges like handling, customs duties,tax etc. I have experienced such situation before and I don't want to be the victims of such a thing again. I will be glad if you contact this freight forwarder Seahog Logistics Ltd  for shipping quote.The shipping company will arrange the pick-up of my order from your store,so you don't have any stress to face in shipping processing at all.Here is their email address (logisticsseahog@yahoo.com) ,Not that I can't deal with the shipper directly,but they always prefer to deal with the store where they will be doing the pick up in other to reduce the customs duties and other charges.They have a way of preparing their shipment documents whereby the custom duties payment on this goods will be reduced and if I wanted to pay for the custom duties and other charges, at times it is 40% of the whole package amount.I do trust Seahog Logistics Ltd ,if not I wouldn't have recommend them for my shipment.They are very reliable and fast.They will take care of everything including Handling, Customs duties,Tax, Insurance etc.Contact them to obtain a quote and get back to me in the format bellow:
COST OF THE ORDER

We too received the exact same email from David Parker, scam artist. Have added his name to the scammer list at http://www.kathleenmcmahon.com/info/scammer-names.html.

This is a great page for anyone who believes they have received a dodgy e-mail. If possible do not reply to these at all.We believe a large number of chinese spam (in characters)is the result of our replies to him!
