Stage of relationship with the supplier at the time of the incident:
The Seller by the name of Prestige Clothing owned by Mr. Alam Khan having it registered office in Khilkhet, Dhaka-1229, Bangladesh, is involved in fraud business involving international trade and exports.
Mr. Alam contacted over our email and introduced himself as a very big manufacturer in Bangladesh and upon request sent the samples of women leggings. After samples were passed by our quality team we contacted for placing the order. We placed the first order for 1125 USD, paying the amount in full before delivery.
The seller posed as a very big manufacturer and was continuously forcing us to place an order for minimum order value of 15,000 USD. But being our first transaction with the seller placed a smaller value order to offset any risk.
The seller charged us much more for the shipping and later when we found out he confirmed that we were charged higher and that he will adjust in next order.
When the consignment was delivered to us we were shocked to find that 80% of the leggings received were badly damaged and defective.
We contacted the seller with images and proofs but Mr. Alam stopped replying to emails and blocked us on Skype/Whats App.
Causing us a total loss of about 950 USD, MR. Alam is now missing. We urge everybody who is reading this to please do not involve in any kind of business with this Seller from Bangladesh.
We will be more vigilant and will ask for reference from the seller next time and talk to the sellers clients for feedback before going ahead with any business proposal.
We have started a communication with Sellers bank to blacklist him and close his all account. These kind of issue happen mostly with small sellers and should be dealt with strictly so that no one else had to bear losses because of a fraud. Thanks for having such a forum where people can reach out and report bad/fraud sellers.
