    Default Buying VCI from US ebay seller?

    Ok so I was just browsing ebay and came across this.....

    http://tiny.cc/LVhEN

    Comes to about 260 shipped via USPS. What im wondering is why is it so cheap and is it safe to buy?

    Cheers

    EDIT - just seen it says B stock, stay away?

    Yes they are B-Stock. And if you get hit for Import Tax it will make it more expensive that buying from UK.
    I explored this route to get a VCI and i gave up . Too much of a risk.

    i got mine b-stock, and have had no issues. i feel like people don't buy b-stock because they really want a *new* one that has never been touched before, but really, they can't sell a broken item without adding a disclaimer that says so. b-stock means everything works, but just may have a few *very minor* details that come with use.

    Yer thats what I thought, I also though taxes would be 30% max and as its goin through USPS is less likely to get charged than if it went through UPS or Fedex?

    Yeah i agree that B-stock can be fine its just you have to be sure that B-Stock doesnt actually mean Ex-Demo.

    As the OP wrote the amount in '' Sterling i assumed he is UK based. In this case it doesnt matter if its UPS , Fedex or Postman Pat that delivers it the Import Tax is added by Customs. And its heavy..!

    The import tax is heavy, but the shipping costs of FedEx and UPS are always higher than USPS. And then that gets tacked on to the import tax.

    yay!
