Stage of relationship with the supplier at the time of the incident:
I contacted Pandatailor through their website around three weeks ago. They quickly replied the day after and the person I was in contact was Lishi Nana. I sent her spec sheets of what I wanted samples of and she gave me the sampling price wish was 200USD and she said I would he 25% back when I bulk order. When I asked her if they accepted PayPal she said only WesternUnion when it came to sampling. It was at that point I begun to feel suspicious. I asked her if there was no other option and she no. She kept repeating that WesternUinon was fast and easy. So in my mind I thought it was only 200USD so it was worth a try.
When I transferred the money, I got noticed that the money was received the same day. I then asked her when the production would begin and she said the day after. So the day after I asked her to send me pictures of how the fabric turned out and she said she would send it the day after and that was the last I heard from that company. Some days after that I sent and email asking when she would send the picture but I never got a reply. I started researching about the company and found out that the WesternUnion address she gave me was linked to other clothing manufactures who gave the same tragic experience to their buyers. One of them was called AskWear.
I have even tried to contact their Facebook page but I got no replies either.
It is actually more difficult to recognise scam companies since it not always it was obvious. By obvious meaning, the websites looking outdated and the company in general seeming suspicious.
I now dont want anything from this other than warning other overseas buyers about this company
