User Experience:
We had been receiving marketing e-mails regularly from this company called “Marine Diesel Network” selling machinery spares for ship’s engines, this is quite normal in this trade and we receive several mails from suppliers everyday. One of our ships had a breakdown on 6th Nov 2017 and we urgently needed to buy some parts and contacted several suppliers from whom we usually buy. As they did not have these parts and the requirement was urgent, we sent enquiries to several new sources and a guy by the name of Yioryis Krontiris from “Marine Diesel Network” promptly responded on 7th Nov 2017 saying he had the parts and called us over the phone to discuss. He obviously was a technical person who knew about these parts and spoke convincingly and promptly sent us scanned technical drawings. He told us that the factory was in Bulgaria but he himself was based in Greece (he was using a Greek mobile number). As he knew from our enquiry that the ship was passing Denmark, he cleverly told us that the spares were stored in Hamburg and could be moved very quickly but insisted on full pre-payment. As time was of essence and we had been receiving their marketing mails since a long time, we wired them 17,000 Euros on 8th Nov 2017 against his proforma invoice. Next day, he confirmed receipt of the funds into their bank account and proceeding with the shipment by road transport to our agents in Denmark. After that he stopped answering the phone and mails. We tried to contact the numbers listed in their website but they are not genuine. We have had no further contact from them, so this is just plain theft.

User Recommendations:
Even if it is an urgent situation and the seller has a sound technical knowledge and good website, always better to wait and buy from trusted sources.

  1. Sirs,

    We are the company listed as a bad supplier, we would like to ask you to remove our company since the allegations are false , and our company already is filling a law suit against the accuser . the parts were ready for delivery on the agreed delivery time , 4 days , but the client wanted us to try to send 4 tons of parts in 24 hours in the distance of 700 miles, witch was not possible, we asked them to deliver in the next port but the did not accept, since the vessel was going to China and there the parts were cheaper.Tthe vessel did not delay at all and was not an emergency but they wanted the parts for safety.
    However we did purpose them to deliver in cheaper price in China, also we purpose to deliver in another port close to the first but still they did not accept.
    In any case the parts are ready to be delivered and we do not refuse to complete the order.
    They choose this way to damage our company spreading e mails al over the world. This company has a record of not paying suppliers using reasons of quality or late deliveries.
    We demand from you to remove our name from your list , since legal procedures has been started again the accuser, and if you do not do we will do the same to your organization

    Best Regards

    1. Thank you for your feedback. Kindly visit the “rules” page for notes about making adjustments to the listings.

      As a rule of thumb, listing are generally not taken down because:
      1. has no formal staff and we simply do not have the manpower to monitor the website or judge the accuracy of a request to delete or change a listing.

      2. And if we are contacted by someone claiming to be an involved party requesting a change, we have no way to verify this.

      However, as a volunteer here at SBL, i desire that listing are accurate. So if you can post the results of your court case and provide some way for us to verify those results, i’ll try to break with standard procedure and ask the website team to remove the listing. I can;t promise the result, but i will try.

      BTW, please know that in posting the original listing, the author signed an agreement that they are legally liable for the comments they post. Visit to learn how you may use the courts.
