For better or worse I ordered via eBay a Monster LA-VE1 adapter from 'John', the guy behind this and the Monster LA-EA4r adapter. The thing has shipped with SF Express and arrived in London where VAT and handling fees are due.

I heard via John that SF Express were looking for payment of the fees and via him SF Express have now sent an invoice (from China, in Chinese). Through trial and error and Google Translate I can see three options to pay - WeChat Pay, AliPay, and SF Financial. None of these appear to let me go further and make a transaction with my credit card.

I am yet to hear from SF Express re contact details for the office or agent in London that holds the package. (eBay tracking says the package is in London, is through customs, and is being held 'for forwarding - please be patient'.)

John offers to take money from me and make the payment directly to SF in China.

I think it is safer to deal with someone in the UK regarding the demanded VAT and fees.

So my question is - has anyone been in a similar position, and how was it resolved for them? John seems trustworthy to me, but beyond his courteous handling of the order and his general standing with the LA-EA4r adapter I don't have a great deal to go on.
