Japanese shopping deputy services
1983parrothead
Ever heard of some websites like Shopping Mall Japan, Noppin, FromJapan and White Rabbit Japan, which allow you to purchase products from Japan and ship them to the deputy services I mentioned, before they ship them right toward you? My parents recently began distrusting them, due to hackers recently stealing credit card and even PayPal info. They also are afraid that the items we ordered will probably get lost, just like when I purchased Fire Emblem: Fuuin no Tsurugi (a.k.a. Fire Emblem 6).

Recently, when I purchased the Asuka 120% BURNING Fest. FM Towns poster for 1000 yen + extra fees and shipping, my parents became a little upset and my stepmother closed her PayPal account after "Charge 1 Payment" was made. When "Charge 2 Payment" (shipping) was started by FromJapan.co.jp (the deputy service I used), I had to use mine and my father's credit card and it didn't work, while the credit union it is associated with called my father by his cell phone and told him his card was being used. We had to ask a credit union representative to allow it to pay for "Charge 2 Payment" (shipping), and it worked. From then on, my parents began to distrust Japanese deputy services and want to only purchase in North America (especially in the U.S.).

If I can't get my parents to allow me to purchase even very rare Japanese products like the 3-disk version of Asuka 120% BURNING Fest. for the FM Towns (which hasn't even been dumped online due to unusual copy protection), then what should I do? If I show them your replies to this thread, they'll look at you all as strangers, but so is 95% of the Internet.

I haven't used any of those proxy services but I've used Celga a couple of times without any problems. I do know that Shopping Mall Japan is considered to be a reliable site (I know some people that have used their services without any problems).
