I too have done business with Skip and without problems. It may also be that there are a whole bunch of new problems trying to send ANYTHING out of the country or bring anything in. I buy things for Fox television and international shipments have become a real pain. Now, unless the sender and the receiver have special numbers (like a Federal I.D. number for people in America) you can send something, it will get stuck in customs for some time and then returned to you! I've had important shipments from Canada and England subject to these delays. Then there will be a call from the supplier asking for my F.I.D. number and the product will finally ship. Best recommendation is to call or e-mail and ask for the "tracking number" and carrier (Emery, Airborn, etc.). Then you can track the shipment on the internet!
Just one more wire!
