I represent a Ukrainian company named APPLE-COMPUTERS.US,
which is a part of European trading centres and subsided by European
media giant Smart Computers Company.
We are not that experienced as many of the current online retailers but
the company is growing fast for now, especially during the hot sale with
much lowered prices then the ones you see in US regular stores.
Currently we are working with non-profit charities and that is the
main reason for the prices you see.
The products we carry were donated to the charities and non-profit
organizations, while they are in a need of funds.
We assist them to sell the items back to United States, and the
sale is also limited to US only as the items origin from there -
they have US power supply, software, and accessories.
All products are legitimate, brand new, with original manufacturer's
warranties, cd's, papers and all accessories provided.
Why deal with us:
We are an authorized Dealer!
We are not a one time seller.
We sell many big ticket items including monitors, plasma displays,
digital cameras, laptops etc. and we consistently receive positive
We ship direct to your door.
We insure everything we ship.
All of our units are covered by manufacturer's full warranty.
HOW TO PLACE AN ORDER WITH OUR COMPANY
To place an order, please send us a request which includes:
1. Product you would like to order and quantity.
2. Name and address where the product should be shipped to.
3. Contact phone numbers for the day and evening time.
4. The method of the delivery you prefer.
After getting your request the initiating order receipt will be sent to you
The payment method required to get the item with the price listed is
Western Union Money Transfer.
We do understand that it may be complicated and not that trusted on
your side comparing to PayPal, COD or regular Credit Card payment,
but there is only one reason for us to use it - as these items were
donated here, using an official payment system (any of the methods
listed require the funds to be received under company's bank account)
will apply a huge seller's tax which would have to be paid.
Both importing and exporting papers would have to be registered with
You may get the item delivered COD, paid through PayPal or Credit Card
but you would have to pay a double price comparing to the listed so we
can cover these taxes. As the prices of US retailers still higher then even
the doubled price mentioned probably some of the customers still would
Meanwhile Western Union is recognized as a private payment when is
being received here and no additional taxes applied. Using this method
will allow you to get the product with the much lowered price we
mentioned in this email.
After reading the receipt, you have to go to the Western Union office of
your area, and set up a money transfer under our sales representative
name working on your order.
ABOUT THE PAYMENT SECURITY
You should be sending funds using a different name then the one you
provide us to ship your order, meaning that we would not know who was
the actual sender of the money transfer.
When we pick the funds on our side we have to name the sender's name,
city, state and address where it is being sent from to claim the money
So basically your money will be on hold until you release them, as we
would have to wait till you supply the information's as name, city, state
and address of the money sender.
Meanwhile, to initiate the delivery of your order, you will just have to
confirm that the money transfer is set and the funds are available under
our sales representative name in the Western Union's draft.
To confirm that you will provide the funds tracking number named MTCN,
which I will forward to the warehouse upon your confirmation.
You will have 3 days inspections period after which you would have to
supply us the senders name and address so we would be able to pick
your funds on our side.
To check that we do need your name and address to pick up your money
transfer, here is a link stating the Western Union's policies for Ukraine:
Article # 9
So the whole procedure will be easy and safe, step by
step it is like this:
1. You will send us a request to place an order for you, supply name
and address for shipping and awaiting for your initiating order receipt.
2. After getting it you will have to visit local Western Union's office and
send the money transfer under our sales person's name.
3. When your MTCN will be confirmed we will ship you the item and
supply you the FedEx tracking number for the order.
4. Finally after getting and inspecting the product, you will send us
the senders name and address required to withdraw your funds.

no -- it's NOT ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
They probably won't find it to be a waste of time if they can suck in even a couple of foolish people to order something and wire the money ... under a different name no less. That makes it sound SOOOOOOOOO legit!_pb_boi said:It's a joke - one Mini for $399.50 or 10 for $3999.50
Just not a very funny one, really. Waste of webspace heh.
