After I transferred 50% of balance amount in Asia Controls bank account against their readiness that the goods are ready for shipment then they did not answer any emails or telephone. I sent them lots of emails but no reply then I started to issue a compliment through our foreign ministry to follow this case.
Here is the email I sent Keen: Dear Keen, I wanted to send a quick email to inform you there is a company out there that has set up a fake Keen website. I was duped of about $170.00 when I tried to order the Keen, Waimea H2 style sandal. I own three pairs of this style and then when Keen quit making them I searched the web and after searching about 30 sites for the style I came across the fake website that took my credit card and actually sent me a pair of $8 awful cheap no brand shoes.
We had a requirement for caustic soda flakes 99% purity. We required SGS certificate which was provided at the time of shipment. The SGS certificate met our requirements and we allowed for the shipment.
When the shipment arrived at our buyer’s warehouse, they found that the chemical was not reacting as expected. They did an analysis and found that the chemical was 17% purity instead of 99%.
I visited the site www.pompcel.com and made an inquiry for mobile phones. They made an offer and send me proforma invoice. The only payment method was Western Union or bank transfer. I decided on the bank transfer. After I made the transfer they stopped replying my emails, blocked my Skype and Whatsapp.
Sellers site looks authentic, business name and banking details check out, but after payment is done a false reference is given ( other buyer have the same reference) see Facebook for similar results, User does not use any courier.
I was looking for a Chinese supplier of scrap copper and aluminium and found this suppliers and started to negotiate. After they sent me photos and proforma invoice, I went to China, Tianjin to visit their warehouse and check the goods. I paid 40% advance.
Thereafter I made the full payment, after that they sent me the original Bill of Landing. A few days later, I called the shipping line to check the cargo, and it turns out that they have another BL with a different description on it!
When I made a purchase of a gift on the website www.watch-vogue.com, they gave me a transaction number and I still expect shipping number. That’s over a month ago. To date they do not respond to emails.
I made a small order. I did not receive anything that I paid for, instead receiving completely different products from what I paid for. I will never again deal with a company without an escrow or guarantee.
I had a bad experience with Sea Shel and lost so much money; about $230,000 USD! The Chinese supplier scammed me and after they received the money they disappeared!
Old story, if it seems too good of a deal, it probably is. Distributor contacted me from a buy lead on Alibaba, samples sent, price agreed, then once money was paid, a lot of emails wanting me to wait for this or that & due to further investigation found it was all a scam!
