Hi Craig,

I think you will have to be far more specific about your requirements. This is so vague that it appears as some sort of scam. What orphans? Which country in Africa? Collecting what "items" from an "online store"? Which?

Re: I need Help

Is this collection of "things" for "orhpans" sanctioned by unicef?

Because without some official corroboration, I'm sorry but I see you as a scammer.

Don't take offence at that. There are too many scammers out there to trust anyone on the internet.

I know Unicef are low on cash, but am sure they are able to scrape enough to run a decent exchange server & not rely on hotmail accounts .....

Re: I need Help

Craig, dude,

Even Pekka with 13 posts to his/her name is ripping into you...

Online etiquette on a site that allows anonymous users dictates that new users asking favours always provide enough information so that we know you're not a scam artist etc.

One line, with "I'm going to africa on a good cause and will reward somebody for receiving something for me in the mail" is well dodgy.

You are asking another anon user to trust you with their real name and mailing address without you even opening up with your motivators etc.
Here's what you should have posted:

Hello, I'm Craig and I work for UNICEF and have done for 6 years. I am just off to africa on a new assignment but want to bulk up my work there with some mobile phones and a laptop which for financial reasons I am ordering from Dell CH. However, they won't deliver to Africa and so I need some kind hearted soul in CH to receive and forwards the goods to me. They'll be delivered by recognisable reputable courier and I will cover all expenses. I don't have anybody I know in CH to help so I'm appealing to the community.

You can verify me and my work here: WWW.Unicefblahblah

Re: I need Help

Hi Craig

I see you're also looking for someone to do some "on-line" work for you while you're in Africa

Seasonal Work

Can you be a bit more specific here too?

Re: I need Help

I urge nobody to trust this person until he offers some independant verification of his association with Unicef.

My apologies Mr Happy, just could not help it. Better stick with the facts like I've done in my other 13 or so posts.

I am just having a hard time believing that an organisation like UNICEF cannot support it's employers in such transactions.

Re: Consolidated "Unicef/Craig" thread

Here is the postal address for Unicef in Switzerland. Why can't the goods be sent there to be forwarded to you?

Swiss Committee for UNICEF
Baumackerstrasse 24
Postfach, 8050

I absolutely agree, but ol' craig here with 6 posts to his name is newbie fodder for somebody with 13....

My point being that if even another newbie is ripping into him...

Though of course I recognise that Pekka may not be your only online account here

Re: I need Help

People are right to be naturally sceptical of these "do-gooders". Until proved otherwise, I'd err on the side of caution and this applies for ANYONE.

Given Craig's not answered anything, I'd say a point has perhaps been proven. He's either a scammer or on a plane to Africa where they have orhpans.
