I dont know anybody down there, someone just told me and I went down there, It doesnt matter, and nobody asked me. I know people that are just buying the stuff to sell it on ebay and make some money, (which sucks in my opinion) I am just hoping other people can take advantage of the good deals before its all gone. good luck.
