Trophy Shippers - Africa
For the guys that have been to Africa and have shipped something back.
The shipping guy in Africa has me hooked up with Trophy Shippers out of Illinois. They are asking for copies of my drivers license and a copy of my social security card. Is that common? I get a little nervous when they want my social security card.
I used new world imports out of Miami and I do not remember giving either to them.
If Trophy Shippers is an import agent for your crate, it is not uncommon.
Thanks for answering my question Buffalo1. Much appreciated.
I had to send my DL and passport number but not my SSN.
I don't recall ever being asked for a social security card. I would absolutely NOT do that.
We are using D&L in Chicago for our africa shipment. They required either passport, 1040 tax return or social security card.
I used Gallagher's in Denver for two shipments, never had to produce a SS card
I have used Coppersmiths out of Chicago twice and will use them again after my 2020 South Africa hunt. Do not recall ever giving them my Social Security card/number.
I have used DL out of chicaho many times
I received an email from SCI not long ago that stated that hunters are starting to be asked to give their social security numbers now for trophy imports.
Is the Trophy Shippers in question using the same logo as in the photo?
The one in the logo is a big sponsor for DSC. I would think they would be very reputable.
