Hello, I was also scammed by a company in Putian, China called “Hua Cheng”.
They got me for $290 USD, but I wasn’t quite bad, it was actually a “good deal”.I ordered a 80GB PS3. But they shipped me via EMS one pair of Jordan Shoes, and five GHD stylers with ceramic technology. Well, those hair stylers are one of the best brand and they were original! I soon started selling them on eBay.
In the first day, I sold two of them for around $120 USD net each. well, I still have three of them, so I am pretty sure I will even double the money that I “lost” when scammed.
I was lucky, It could have been worst. I recommend people not to deal with any “company” that would accept payments via Western Union or Bank Wire Transfer. Only legit companies would accept either L/C, Escrow service, Cash On Delivery (which is also a service provided by EMS), Moneybookers,
and Pay Pal (Verified account).
Do research when dealing with any company.
No real company uses MSN, Yahoo, etc, instant message services.
