Oh this is terrible. I have been buying things on Ebay since I arrived here, using my British cards, and getting things delivered either here direct or to my mother's house in Cambridge. Now suddenly I keep getting a message that I am in a 'non-Permitted Country' and my cards are refused. I have to apply to the US or UK Treasury/CUstoms someone to validate that I am not a money launderer or something. And I can't - because they want utility bills in my name that I haven't got as all those things are in either my landlord's name or my ex-tenant's or my mother's! I have got myself in a right mess as I have just bought a cat crate on ebay (obviously I am getting getting ready to transport the kits over to France) and I don't now know how to pay for it. I shall have to contact the seller and ask if he will accept a personal cheque which will take a week to arrive and then my crate won't arrive at my mother's in time for me to pick it up when I am in the UK on the 30th May. I am so angry.
