Stage of relationship with the supplier at the time of the incident:
The scam was very good. After due diligence, ie business registration, third party visit by collegue etc, I then requested copy of shipping airway bill and that was produced. But it was not filled out correctly. I then asked for a copy done correct and no reply, all communication then stopped. The tracking number was incorrect naturally. In other words they took the money and ran. Lucky it was small amount.
Not to by-pass my due diligence in place. Always ask them to complete a Approved suppliers questionnaire before proceeding with handing any money over. The questionnaire seems to distract from these scam companies as to much information has to be given.
