    Hey guys,

    I need to order something and the problem is they only send it to a verified UK address (forward services like Borderlinx don't work). Now I don't have one hence I'd like to ask if someone could share this address with me, I would pick it up on 6th April. Many thanks in advance! :)

    Can't say I'm surprised you haven't been inundated with offers.

    Nothing personal, :eek: but these days with internet fraud, identity theft and the like rampant, very few people are as trusting as in "them thar olden days"

    Most people don't even know their neighbours' names.

    Modern life.

    Agreed. I certainly wouldn't do it.

    No, we just hate you.:p

    Seriously, I wouldn't give out my home address to a complete stranger on the internet, so they could ship god knows what to my house and then come and get it. Sorry, but it is ludicrous to even ask.

    considering that one of the few significant block to the use of a stolen credit card numbers to buy goods on line is the shipping address, i can't but agree with you.

    Enough people here speak to their comings and goings on a given work-day.

    What's to stop someone from boosting their pad while they are at work?

    If you wish to give your name, address and phone number first, and let them confirm it, well that might be different.

    Surely you have a friend or family member you can ask rather than a group of strangers on the internet. :confused: Only a completely naive person would even consider doing something like this for someone they didn't know pretty well.

    Is there a reason you cannot verify your own address to have whatever it is shipped to you?

    i guess thats today for you , but most follow the governments advice not to trust even your own family , because nothing is easier to rule then a country where everybody thinks their neighbour could be a potential paedophile, drug dealer or terrorist or even something worse then that :confused:

    I guess that's today, people turning someone's understandable reluctance to hand over personal details to a complete stranger into a baseless, paranoid government conspiracy. :confused:

    Well I don't agree fully with his post, I do feel that there are some elements within our Fearless Leaders that would slowly drain away our right of self-protection.

    I might actually start back at target shooting with a 22 single-shot, when and if our Long Gun registry is revoked. I don't mind being investigated for a FAC, for I have passed 3 criminal checks in the last 10 years for volunteering with the 'vulnerable' sector of Society.
