Element 14 Holding Orders Based On US Government Watch List | EEVblog - The Electronics Engineering Video Blog (http://www.eevblog.com/2014/02/24/element-14-holding-orders-based-on-us-government-watch-list/)

If your name happens to be fairly common like mine, then you may end up having your orders flagged and put on hold by Element 14, at least here in Australia. Because, well, their system sucks arse, and it seems like they are licking the arse of the United States government to boot. Am I pissed? You betcha!

I placed an order for some innocuous parts from Element 14 in Australia the other day and their system automatically “flagged” my order and put it on hold based on my name being on some US Government watch list!

He should put the name "Osama Bin Laden" on the delivery address, because obviously that's one name no longer on any US watch list. :tongue
