    Is anyone going to Middlesbrough shopping today or tomorrow and could pick me something up?

    As above really. Only shop that has what im after is in Middlesborough and I am in Swindon so am asking if anyone can pick it up for me if they are going into town today? Or tomorrow??

    Obviously I would pay you something for your trouble and would either arrange courier or pay for postage

    Thanks!

    Yeah i was thinking of doing that to be honest. Went into DHL at lunch and they basically laughed at me! Thanks for your help though.. :thumbsup:

    What is the item, even if its not in the uk maybe you can have it imported if its cheap enough

    a lot mate, i would be happy with the £20 charge to be honest. But i need the courier to pay for them you see. I would pay them first obviously but thats why im stuck!

    Normally i would call there for you at charge you £10

We had stranger requests than this one and accepted themOnly problem might be getting shop to parcel it up with your name and address, so i'd start there by asking them if they would



    I tried a few and no one would

I wasn't accusing miles of being an opportunist scammer, was just saying to be cautious as u know that there have been a fair few scammers about recently and was just highlighting the fact that u r known on here and have a good feedback score.Apologies to miles if it read like I was throwing an accusation at him, I can see how it could be misinterpreted like that! Like wonkey has said, you wouldn't find many members on here who would do what you did so congrats, when I'm on my pc I'll send you some rep!

    I know what spam is but what r spamers? what do they do? how can u tell who they r?
