    Please sign our petition to get BFPO numbers recognised

    Hi everybody,

    First let me introduce myself, my name is John and I own and run postedoverseas.com.

    I will soon be starting a campaign to get BFPO addresses recognised by companies who either refuse to deal with or supply services to BFPO addresses.
    Some of these include SKY, ARGOS and financial institutions

    More details on the campaign can be found at
    http://www.thebfpocampaign.co.uk/sign.php

    I have just set up an online petition that you can sign and leave your comments on. Click here to see the petition.

    It will all help when it comes to getting the newspapers, magazines, radio and MPs involved.

    With so few of us left, we all need to sign it to get as many signatures as possible.

    Why not join the cause, if you've not yet had the pleasure of using a BFPO address, your time may come soon.

    Electronic signature that is, basically all you have to do enter your name, email address, the area that you are from and any comments you have.
    Go on....try again

    Done - thank you in advance for the efforts you are making. We have just spend 10 frustrating days trying to buy a thousand (yep a thousand!) pounds worth of IKEA vouchers as a wedding present. No small amount but will not cut through the red tape of "oh, BFPO, you don't live in England then....so we can't do it"

    That's just stupid, I will now add IKEA to my list of BFPO Unfriendly companies and I will get on to them, although the amount of time it takes companies to repond to emails is rediculous.

    Thanks again

    It is not just BFPO numbers that Ikea won't deliver to. You also don't exist and are not part of the UK if you reside in Northern Ireland. But that is a different complaint.

    You have given me an idea grandad, or got me thinking anyway. Maybe there should be somewhere to complain about the amount of companies that won't even deliver to their own country. Grrrrr and don't get me started on insurance providers

    I have signed the petition for BFPO too though, it was a pain in the bum trying to get stuff delivered whilst on camp. Twas only as i used to be a postie for the mod that i was able to get around the system as i knew a couple of tricks.

    Good luck in the campaign, a worthy cause.
    Giv us a smile y'auld bugger!
