Honey .... we're HOME!

Been a while ain't it? :) We've been travelling a lot ... l've been in the States for some time in the state of Arizona. Got myself back into motorbikes whilst l was there and have continued to do that now back in UK. Done lots of other stuff too.

We left because we felt we'd done as much as we could and the N2D Forum continues our work. It's now run by friends of ours and they still help cross-border shoppers who have problems with Border Force. We'd particularly like to thank Eezyrider along with the other Mods and regular members for doing such a fine job. They are very knowledgable about all the regs etc and the tactics of Border Force (< who are still not fit for purpose). As always ... all the advice on N2D Forum is free!

So, why are we back? Well, we still receive lots of mail but 99% is handled by the Forum. Amongst this mail has been something that has interested us. lt's not about cross-border shopping ... it's about a Border Force section that call themselves the Revenue Fraud Detection Team (RFDT for short) and abide at Freight Clearance Centre, Lord Warden Square, Western Docks, Dover, Kent.

RFDT look to have gone rogue ... with help from other departments in HMRC and our 'friends' at the National Post Seizure Unit. RFDT live in Ivory Towers and don't like any public intrusion or attention.

So, we thought it's time to do just that and let the public know what these excuses for public servants are up to. Give us a couple of days to clear the cobwebs out the office and we'll show you how they are harassing and destroying legitimate UK Companies just because they deal in raw tobacco leaf.

What crime have these companies committed? ... NONE

What evidence do RFDT have against these companies? ... NONE

OF course you'd think RFDT are abiding by their own rules and regulations ... THINK AGAIN

Watch this space ... we shall reveal all :)

Right, time to clean office


  1. Tis a bugger aint it.

    You think after all these "ideas" over the years to make a nice little earner out of baccy...its gone tits up again.

    Have you boys thought of dressing up like Vicars and doing baccy runs maybe with a van with a church logo on it.

    Perhaps claim the raw tobacco leaf is used for cat litter or something?

    Drone flights from Adinkerke?

    Good luck lads


  2. Been bringing in my smokes for over 20 years and never lost any, Rickie. Never even had them taken and won them back later so l'll give the vicar run a miss thanks. Thinking on it, its been 3 years since l was even stopped for a chat. Know the BF by name now at the airport and even exchange pleasantries :)

    Not cat litter ... pigeon bedding ... look it up :)

  3. Pigeon bedding ...nice one.,

    your comments remind me of a quote from Breaking Bad by Gustav Freng..."I hide in plain sight"

    That might not mean anything to you but its all about using a front to cover up illegal activities and clever ways to disguise drugs.

    Anyway I don't think you are half a cute as that more like "Terry Duckworth" out of Coronation street... northern scammer and all that.


  4. Looking forward to another adventure..


  5. Hi Guys. It has been a month since "Watch this space ... we shall reveal all "
    How long must we wait?


"In the eyes of the Tribunal the review letter contained several preconceptions, prejudgments and non-sequiturs"

"the absurdity of this reason is demonstrated by simply stating it"

"We therefore find that Mr Sked misdirected himself as to the Policy in carrying out the review and his decision is therefore one that no reasonable review officer could have arrived at."

... commonly known here at N2D as 'Skeds' ... that is to say these are Judges comments regarding UKBA Review Officer Ian Sked's reasons for rejecting peoples appeals against seizures.
