Topic: International Buyer - Question for Tom (2 msgs / 41 lines)
1) From: Dante
Hi Tom,
I have been a lurker on this list and an SM customer since last year. My transactions with SM have always been made under other peoples' names because I live in the Philippines and can't seem to create an account in SM for myself. So, I have to ask US-based friends to order stuff from SM  for me, which is OK for the occasional item but a little embarrassing already when I order more than one item - which is more often the case.
So, my question and request is this - could you allow me to transact in my own name? I can fax or e-mail you the registration details that I can't submit online, because of my location. I have a very good cargo forwarder based in LA who can consolidate my purchases so I do have a US shipping address for this purpose.
I apologize if this is a topic that should have been dealt with off-list, but there might be some international members on this list who might also need the same waiver that I do to register an account with SM.
Many thanks.
Dante

Sure - I will answer this off list and Maria will email you. Sorry to 
say we did lose quite a lot of money ($2,000 or so) on a fraud order 
to Philipines, and we turn off that option, but that doesnt mean we 
won't work around that if someone contacts us personally... Now, 
Nigeria is completely off limits though ...
