Default Shipping PC from Europe to UK?

Someone in the UK might be interested in buying my PC.

I wasnt expecting it to go outside of Belgium, any idea on which company I should use? Also are there any customs issues with the freight?

Any help offered is appreciated

cost will depend on weight, do you plan to use DHL/UPS/Fedex?
normal postal service costs: http://www.post.be/site/nl/residenti...lopostint.html , between €26~65

import taxes: if you include invoice with max value of €10 on outside of box, you should be safe

Even Paypal isn't full proof, trust me.
Western Union and others aren't to be trusted eighter when you sell abroad !!!

I'm well aware of the paypal scams going on, and I wouldnt touch Western Union stuff with a pole

Once the cash is sittin in my bank account and not PayPal I'll ship the goods. Nothin is done yet, still making sure this isn't a scam of some sort.

After googling for a bit, I can confirm it is a scam.

I found someone on different forums that listed the same address as the one I was sent but with a different name.

I guess the next step is to pull their ip from the emails they sent to Ecops with the emails and a link to this other forum aswell.
