Except that they are incorrect. I worked with a member here from Saudi Aribia to help him d/l books to his Kindle. He was not able to buy Kindle books which his non-US credit card was on file. He had to buy a gift card... apply it to the account, remove the credit card and then buy the kindle book. I suggested to him that he should create a new Amazon account just for Kindle books to make it easier. I think that is what he ended up doing.
Unless you know someone doing the above.
