    Try using a proxy buying service like Tenso.com or Buyee.jp. You register with them: they buy the item for you (which might include bidding if necessary), which then gets shipped by the seller to their warehouse, and then they send it on to you. You are able to pay them by Paypal, and with every step you get notifications.

    It might seems slightly scary buying stuff from Japan the first time you are doing it, but the proxy's are usually dependable. It does cost a little extra in service fees (a percentage of the total value of the item you bought), and you will pay for both local shipping from seller to the warehouse and international shipping for journey from the warehouse to your home, but it's worth it for the stuff you really can't find elsewhere.

    I'll help you. Just send the money through Western Union or a Green Dot Money Pak.

    There's this Nigerian bank account you can also use
