That will probably work best with somebody you personally know.  Why?  It's
much too similiar to a scam that's been going around.  I know that you've
been a member here on the LUG, so I don't doubt you, but that's a good way
of "mail laundering" packages bought with stolen credit cards.  People have
been posting in usenet groups and in unsolicited mail looking for others in
a different country to help them in this same way.  They use a stolen credit
card number, and when the theft is noticed, guess whose address the company

You might try looking for discount mail order houses here that will ship
internationally.  I'd think it would be similar to our buying "gray market"
items here.
