Stage of relationship with the supplier at the time of the incident:
The supplier contacted us several times offering commodities at fair price, then we asked them for a quotation, he offered us, we negotiated the deal, we confirm everything, we had the contract and we signed/stamped it, we transferred them the down payment. Then he didn’t deliver in time, he asked to cancel the order! We signed cancellation agreement and he promised to refund the down payment but he never did. It is 3 months now, and they keep saying silly funny reasons of not being able to refund us the down payment.
Contact person is a lady called Anna Ackerman, which I assume it is only a fake name of a typical international scammer.
When we traced their mail later, we discovered it had been sent from Hong Kong not UK!
Next times, if I couldn’t meet the supplier myself at least I have to hire a 3rd party institution or even a friend to meet the supplier in person (at least for the first time)
