    Explain that you did have, but thieves nicked all the copper earthing wire out of it and it's no longer safe to use

    And what was this 'USB sub station' going to be used for? I am presuming they meant a USB hub?

    I'd guess they meant a hub. Or USB comes from Unterseeboot which would make their request rather more difficult. There may be some left in Norway.
