Daniel is off work for a few days.

Just a quick note. Daniel has picked up a bad strain of Flu here and will be off work for a few more days. Those of you trying to get hold of him for the last few days will have noticed that he is not available.

As Daniel is the primary source of contact for many of our customers we realise some of you may have been left wondering whats going on.

All orders are being shipped as normal from our warehouse, our office is still open as usual and production in the factory is continuing as normal. If you have any generic queries regarding an existing order please email Carla@youngmoneychina.com.

We hope he will be back in a few days, I think he has been overworking himself.

Thanks.
