Stage of relationship with the supplier at the time of the incident:
I bought 4 containers of aluminum scrap, they send me the B/L, Commercial Invoice etc after a few days. They told me that the shipment is on going. But later the shipping company send me an email asking for taxes and everything.
Then after a few weeks the shipping company sent me an email again asking for another shipping charges. They blocked mail us that if we did not pay the charges they will going to hold our containers and charging more charges for holding the containers.
Then another email from shipping company asking for shipping charges again. Our shipping term with my supplier is CIF, why they are keep on asking us to pay all those charges. Again, they blackmailed us that they will going to hold our containers. The last email asking us to pay again shipping charges we refused to pay because according to the shipping company the supplier had a $3,120 balance from them and they don’t have the money to pay them.
They are asking us to pay because it is our containers and if we did not pay they will not going to ship the container to the final port of destination. That time according to them it is in transshipment event in Hong Kong. When we refuse to pay. Since then we don’t hear from them anymore. As of now we don’t have any idea the whereabouts of our 4 containers. We believed that the supplier and the shipping company are connived in this illegal act.

Do not trust so much to your supplier, if you have a chance to go and check the company personally much better.. I import so many times but never experience this before. So be careful.
