Thank you for your comments. There is always something to learn from anybody
averywhere. However I notice that you failed to comment on the fact that the
conman did not send his parcel until after about THREE MONTHS after I sent
mine and even using my packing for it (and even that took some convincing from
my part). Perhaps this is an argument too difficult to defend and by the way,
why are you defending one side without knowing all the facts?
