Stage of relationship with the supplier at the time of the incident:
I was looking to buy Zinc Ash from China. After much search, I went to china to visit suppliers. Handan Tianmu Chemicals Co,. Ltd. was one of company I met. They took me for visit to a factory saying it’s own. I found out that it is not their then they said they are authorize distributor.
Our payment terms were 30% Advance and 70% against L/C. I transferred 25% amount and asked them to confirm me shipping date so that I can issue L/C and transfer 5% amount. However suddenly all communication stopped. Emails started getting bounced and phone was not answered ever. Most of time it was our of reach. I got worried. Eventually after pursuing a lot, they replied by email saying they will need more than 3 weeks for dispatch. I told them that according to our terms material has to be dispatched in 2 weeks from advance payment. After that I asked them to cancel order and refund my advance. I sent them cancel copy. Then they ask me to wait for a month for refund as they will refund if factory refunds. However, it has been over two months now, emails have stopped being answered and I have got no refund what so ever!
Don’t ever trade or do business with Handan Tianmu Chemicals Co., Ltd.
Miss Janet Lee or Ms. J. Lee is sincere sounding lady but that’s just a scam. They are more unethical people.
Never give advance on first deal. Do it on 100% L/C
