Please note that you place orders at your own risk. I have come across the places listed via, for example, adverts or Facebook posts, and shared them here in the hope that it may help somebody. I have no reason to suggest they are not entirely trustworthy, but I cannot vouch for their quality, effectiveness, safety or reliability.
