Since the prices appear to be in British pounds I'm guessing you must be looking for purchasing in Europe? Never dealt with them before as I'm in the states but the site itself looks well maintained and up to date, though I'm not sure how reliable they might be. Perhaps someone else on here has had dealings with them before and can give you a bit more information. Smoke happy.

I found this website a week ago.
http://www.alfakherflavours.com/
They also sell alfakher at a reasonable price I think. And the costs are different per country. I think it's because of the differences in tax. Did anyone buy from this website?

I think they still sell from out of the EU, Arabia, Dubai somewhere there, so if customs get your package you'll have to pay taxes over all items, that's €59 + 19% per kg in Holland

Money asked via Western Union is 99% fraud.

Yeah, I'd definately not want to be the guinea pig for sending them money. With the information that you've added I would avoid them, myself. Smoke happy.

good call not using that site. there isn't a single reason that it would be easier to use western union, unless they are trying to scam you while being almost untraceable. it doesn't get easier than paypal. plus, anyone wanted to run a respectable business is going to answer your emails.

Plus, 2 different misspellings of tobacco (they spelled it both as tobbaco, and tobbacco) raises a red flag to me as well.

I agree... the site looks fishy to me. I can't quite put my finger on it but it's like every warning bell is ringing. I wouldn't buy from it...
