User Experience:
– June 15, 2018. We (a company from the USA) first contacted Mr Darren Kim, CEO of INS Corporation (INS E&F Co., Ltd.) for purchase of cosmetic products.
– June 18, 2018. We decided to placed an order for cosmetic products from Mr Darren Kim after several email correspondences. He issued an proforma invoice of US$ 3,894.18 on June 18, 2018.
– June 19, 2018. We made a full payment of US$ 3,894.18 to INS Corporation (INS E&F Co., Ltd.) via online wire transfer to INS’s bank account (Citibank Korea).
– June 25, 2018. We placed a second order to be added to the first order which might help us save the shipping fee. Mr. Darren Kim issued another proforma invoice of US$ 715.50 then emailed to us.
– June 26, 2018. We continued to make another full payment of US$ 715.50 to INS Corporation (INS E&F Co., Ltd.) via online wire transfer.
– July 27, 2018. Mr Darren Kim proposed for refund. He said the reason for not fulfilling the order is due to out of stock. But no refund was made till now (Oct 27, 2018)
We made many phone calls but Mr. Darren never answered it. He just sent email and kept promising us that he would refund our money soon; he asked for the wait of 2-3 days many times but after all no refund happens. So this company and Mr. Darren are really scammers. Please DO NOT do any business with him.

User Recommendations:
Never transfer the big money in the first transaction with a strange supplier.
Never trust in anybody online even they talk and behave nicely.
Check the review of a company carefully before proceeding to do business with them.
Don’t make full payment for the initial order. 50% is recommended.
Don’t think South Korea has not have scammers.

  2. Hi, I had the same with this company and Darren KIM, and I think this report is the about the same company and Darren Kim as well…

    A while ago I also came across another report about INS Co.,ltd on another site, however I can not find it anymore today.

    Is there anything we can do expect emailing them everyday?? They do seem to reply on their emails, always telling us to wait and have patience.

    1. Hi my88,
      Darren Kim scammed me and kept promising by emails thousand times saying that he would refund my money but he never did that. So that, last November I flew to Seoul, South Korea and went to his office on 10th floor of ENC Dream Tower 2 but I found out that he never had an office in that building. By asking Han Lew – the manager of ENC Dream Tower 2 building, I knew that Darren Kim had scammed many customers around the world. Han Lew made a phone call to Darren Kim then let me talk to him. He continued to make promises but I could not trust him any more. Then Han Lew and Darren Kim discussed together to look for a solution for Darren’s debt (Darren owed my about US$ 4,600). Finally, Han Lew gave me 500,000 (equivalent to about $450). Darren told me that he would refund me the rest when I get back to the USA. But that never happened. Until now he still owes me about US$4,150
      Please tell everybody to stay away from Darren’s business.
      And if other victims want to sue him, please let me join together.

    2. Hi guys, who ever having a problem with INS, feel free to contact me. I had reported him to the police in korea and finally he is in custody now.. and he is responsible to return my money to reduce his sentence.

      1. Hi Thaoha

        Please see my dealings with Darren here.

        It seems like a lot of people have been scammed by him. I have reported him to Korean agencies but no one is helping…

        I’m also trying to get goggle to get his website down. Anyone have ideas doing this?

        Please spread this around on all suppliers/scammers website and stop this Scammer!
