Re: scamm?????????????????

Hate to be so late in replying, but you have a valid reason to cancel the transaction as the address is not the same as the one verfied by the buyer.


You would do well to delete a few countries from those you ship to, or to not ship internationally at all. I know they want us to advertise that we do, but honestly I have not, in 8 years seen that it is worth it. Some type of little glitch comes up at least a third of the time.

Hi Mercury Trading is a bulk courier servcie between the UK and Zambia, shipping small items at very competitive rates.


It's very commonly used here in Zambia by expats and locals shopping online in the UK, esp with the likes of Amazon.
