After I ordered my phone from this company in China, SBC Trading Co. took all the money upfront in form of a Western Union payment. I have had no reply to my emails anymore after that and I never received my phone.
I have agreed with one of the owners that I will introduce him to South African businesses and in exchange he will pay me a 5% commission on every order placed with him via these companies. After introducing the supplier to South African companies he began to negotiate with them directly and transact without keeping me updated or even telling me he was doing so.
We placed our purchase order with AYXN Electronics Limited and a proforma invoice promptly arrived, as well. We paid on the basis of the PI and from that moment on no other reply arrived. We sent several reminders, but no answer has been received.
I got scammed by VNSKY just the same as everyone on here, very well run scam and website etc. Good communication stopped as soon as they had the funds. They sent proforma invoice and the website looked good, but unfortunately I did not find this supplier blacklist before getting scammed.
I have purchased a dress on their website and although they claim they have free refunds no matter which are the circumstances for requesting a refund they refuse to refund the money. They are not reliable and I would never recommend this supplier, their products have low quality finishes and although I have provided pictures with the poor finished they still refuse to refund my money.
I met the owner/manager Mr Ethan Hunt on exhibition in Hongkong. Their 3D-printer looked interesting. I went to see their factory in Shenzhen and placed a small test order plus some consumables, total USD 24.000. I had a constant contact with Ethan Hunt and also met again and all seemed ok. Then he could not deliver and agreed to pay me back my money. I sent him an invoice which he has not paid.
I have over 15 years of procurement experience and this was never happen with me before. Please don’t make advance payment to overseas company, its a big risk.
