I didn't have the strength to read this whole thread, and didn't think that I wanted to get involved, until I saw that people were leaving because of it.
I make my living managing international channels. one of the basic premises of the whole system is that, if you sell to a channel in one territory, he is not supposed to move the product to another territory. that is hugely basic. and policing this takes up a lot of my energy and time. it is perfectly understandible that vass should want to control their channels. comnplaining about it is like complaining that mcdonalds uses disposible wrappers - it shows a misunderstanding of the basic business model.
sorry - I know that it may be painful, but that is life.
Why restrict yourself to what YOU can carry? Pick an illegal/immigrant/foreigner to carry a giant sack of the money FOR YOU
(Yes, I know I am a foreigner but I do not count. I have bad shoulders, doctor has told me I cannot lift heavy weights due to the possibility of ripping my shoulder out. However I can help with the administrative tasks that would entail my safeguarding the money. Uhm, and also "dynamic personal acquisition investment" in things such as size 10.5 shoes and size 38 suits. Full Canvas, how much is one of those Alfa GTZ again )
