This is my first experience buying from overseas and it was fantastic. I placed two consecutive orders and both orders arrived. The second order was intercepted and inspected by customs (perhaps because it was shipped from Thailand) but since the order was for a mineral supplement, they let it through (technically you need a prescription for them in the U.S. but the border people may not have known or cared). Sure, the prices are high - but that's the price to be paid for not being scammed. Definitely worth it!
