Importing Mobile Phones from China. Just Don’t Do It!
Putian Wanshan Trading
I thought I had a good deal from a company called ‘Putain Wanshan Trading’ in Fujian. Being a gold member and Trustpass member with Alibaba.com gave me confidence in this company. But both titles dont mean a thing. Don’t be conned.
I had always insisted on original Nokia, and was offer N95 for $330.00. Thinking I hit jackpot, I immediately made payment, only to find out that the mobile would be ‘OEM’. Which basically means copy, and labelled Nokia.
How is this possible! anyway when I insisted on the original, I was told the price was USD$770. Having already paid, $330 I was left with no alternative but to pay remaining balance.
This is when problems started :
Putian Wanshan Trading kept saying payment was not received, when my bank informed me payment went through after few days. When I kept insisting, after 2 weeks, they admitted it arrived.
But then, surprise surprise, mobile out of stock so I had to wait few more days. I chased them every day, then they said they sent it, but we not able to give me tracking number. I pestered them again, and after a week I got a tracking number, but when I tried to trace it parcel not found.
I had been chasing them to check with EMS about shipment, 1 week after they tell me its stuck in Hong Kong due to export restrictions. Now I am told that there are some restrictions on exporting electronics outside china. They say they new about this but did not tell me about it.
And now Putian Wanshan Trading say they cannot retrieve it back – and I am unable to claim anything back. Can you believe it!
So unless you have money to burn, or waste JUST DON’T DO IT! Do not trust this company as they do not come up with the goods.
The staff team, including owner Mr James, will tell you anything and agree to anything in order to get your money.
I have lost $770.00, but if it means my bad experience will stop others getting conned, then at least I can say something good has come out of it.
ITS A RISKY BUSINESS, PUTIAN WANSHAN TRADING, JUST DONT DO IT. AND ALIBABA DONT HELP!
