From the seller:

“Please, ASAP customs needs your CIF/NIF/NIE”

I reply, after googling wtf CIF is, that as Canadian I don’t have or need a CIF - it’s for Spaniards and Spanish companies. I understand it to be a government issued ID, like maybe our SIN or your Social Security Number.

I told him I have a passport number, drivers license number, and Social insurance number, but I’m not about to provide him with them.

Anyone have any experience with this particular issue? Got a language barrier with the seller, but it seems to me he is equally as unclear what the shipping company and/or Spanish customs is asking me for.

I think he may have accidentally sent you an email meant for someone else?

This is what the NIF is for:

Nope. Multiple fruitless back-and-forth with the seller. He is claiming incompetence by the Spanish service he is using (Zeleris). I’m telling him I don’t need that shit, and the shipping company ought to know that based on my country.

Wish me luck.

So I guess customs just said OK and off it went. Weird.

In transit now.

sgrubiosubasta On eBay. Looked to see if he was on the naughty list and found one mention where there was grief but he was the buyer.

Arrived today. Between Spanish customs and DHL (what a shitty shipping company) it was a headache but everything ended up fine and all is well.

Good to hear that there was a good ending to that saga.
