should do well because the greedy bastards charging £40 or more have kicked the arse out of the job and that's why I will not post or send for birds because by the time you have bought them and paid carriage things work out very expensive

what I think he is hoping that not every one will want all the strays back john miller couriers birds from the mainland to NI for I think around £10-20 a bird it's not door to door you meet him at a given point this chap ask's you pay £20 up front so he may be hopping not everyone in the group will use him but no doubt there will be some who will want every bird lost back thing is lets wait and see

if you want the odd bird returned or you have a new bird coming in then think it could work but not if you get some who would want every bird lost returned the other thing is Ray if joined then you have someone at the end of the phone having paid the £20 nothing more to pay

so lets clear this up ; this guy wants £20 paid up front from people who have not used his services , may not need his services or may never get the chance to use his services ????????????


he is offering to cover the whole of the U.K for several months of the year so will need to buy ,maintain and insure a new vehicle and put fuel in it and be rewarded for his time !

do you remember the chain letter scams ??????

I think that the established couriers will keep their business for now

as I said do you remember the chain letter scams that did the rounds about 20 years ago ?, now if this guy was to retire abroad with a nice little package as a bonus ,..................
also I doubt that the police would be bothered because of the sum of £20 here and there ,....................FFS he would be laughing
