  1. I want to purchase the Russ Freeman Fakebook JSF – 001 .Do you ship to Taiwan .? If not , do you ship to Australia ? I reside in Taipei , but it could be sent to my daughter in South Australia .
    I tried to pay with my Mastercard , but my billing & delivery address in Taipei were rejected .
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you,

    1. Hi Malcolm,
      Sorry for the late answer. We do not “ship”, as the fakebook is a pdf file sent to you by a link that you’ll get as soon as you have paid via Paypal.
      If Paypal doesn’t work in Taipei, try with your sister’s card in South Australia, it should work!
