Stage of relationship with the supplier at the time of the incident:
I had received a mail from Mr Alvin Lin, regarding product prices. I thought he was genuine as i had posted a product quotation on alibaba.com recently, and I thought that he had seen it and replied me by mail. I asked him his Skype ID for further conversation and exchanged many messages with him regarding the procedure, the payment details and all related information regarding my order.
My order consisted of the following:
1 pc Alienware M 18X 18.4 inch – $488
2 pcs OnePlus 2 64GB Black – 58 x 2 = $116
1 pc Moto 360 2nd Gen SmartWatch – $45
Total = $649
He said me that if the order is above a specific amount, you will get the equivalent amount of that for free
So, this was my extra $649 purchase (buy one get one free offer)
1 pc Microsoft Surface Pro 4, 12.3″ Intel Core 6th generation, 16GB/1TB – $190.00
1 pc iPhone 6S Plus 128 GB GOLD COLOR – 290$
iPad Mini 4 WIFI+4G 128GB – $130
2 pc Car Jumper Power Bank – 2 x 12 = 24
2 pcs Spigen Case for OnePlus 2 – 2 x 5 = $10
Total = $644
I did the payment through Western Union on 3rd March, 2016 approximately at 11:06 AM Gulf Standard Time.
The account to which she told me to do the payment is mentioned below:
Western Union Payment Information:
FIRST NAME: LINA
LAST NAME: LV
The MTCN Number of the Western Union payment is: 423-227-4939
I have the original receipt with me. I instantly messaged him on Skype with the details and he said that he will ship out the products within 24 hours. Next day I messaged him again and he said that he will ship out the products that day. He did not reply to my messages after that anymore, except in the middle once or twice saying that my goods are in transit and they will reach me soon.
He has provided me with a tracking number, which is of PostNL whereas he said me that the goods will be sent to me by DHL. I got the goods nearly after a month on 5th April, 2016, but everything inside is fake.
The tracking number: RS414357822NL
This person is a big fraud. He is just a small company dealing with mobile cases, USB’s, Speakers, etc. I don’t know what to do but please do spread this message to everyone so that nobody else is scammed. If you want a product of the pictures or want to contact me regarding this I am ready to answer you. Pleas email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
