User Experience:
9/18/19: I found Components-Store.com online after searching for the component I needed. I desperately needed the component and was excited that I had found a vendor who had it in stock. I requested and received a Quote on 9/19/19. I wanted to order a small quantity to make sure components were good but I was told they have a $500 minimum order value (MOV).

I requested and received a ProForma Invoice on 9/19/19, for $506.94. I was told the payment was only acceptable via wire transfer (T/T). 9/20/19: I wired the funds as requested.

(To HSBC Hong Kong, Bank Swift Code: HSBCHKHHHKH,

Acct #: 747095875838, Hong Kong Ming Xue Trading Co., Limited,

Beneficiary Address: Rm 603 6F Hang Pont Commercial Building, 31 TonKin St, Cheung Sha Wan, Kowloon, Hong Kong)

I received an email in response and was told that the funds had been received and that I would receive a Tracking Number as soon as the order had shipped, which would be within 3 days.

I never received the product nor any further communication from “Ben Yeung”, ben@components-store.com. I’ve sent 4 additional emails with no response.
I’ve since done some research and see that I have been scammed out of $500.

User Recommendations:
I learned I did not do enough due diligence prior to making this order.
I trusted this vendor as they seemed professional, responded to my requests quickly, were personable, etc.
I’ve since learned that requiring payment with T/T only may be a red flag (even though this is standard practice with other vendors I work with). Learned I should request PayPal payment with first time vendors…if they refuse, it may be another red flag.

I also saw a comment that this vendor may have gone by the name Components-Mart, which is on the Supplier Blacklist…and which I now see has the same address in Hong Kong, similar logo, etc.

I see other sites list Components-Center and Components-Shop as other possible aliases or previous names.

I tried to upload copy of email and Proforma Invoice, but got msg saying pdf is not an acceptable file type…??

  1. We were also scammed in an almost identical way. We did not know http://www.components-store.com had already been black listed here.

    We were led to https://www.components-store.com by Google Search Ad. The guy who issued the quotation and proforma invoice called himself Ben Yeung with an email address ben@Components-Store.com. Initially he responded very fast even at night (Hong Kong time), he stated in his emai “…About the payment term, because this is our first cooperation, according to our company rule, we have to be T/T in advance. We currently only accept bank transfer…” We thought that they would probably accept our Purchase Order with a Net 30 payment term in the future after the first deal….. we were too naive!

    Their bank information according to their proforma invoice is as follows:

    Bank name: The Bank of East Asia, Limited
    Bank Address: 10 Des Voeux Road Central, Hong Kong
    Bank Swift Code: BEASHKHH
    ( If your bank requires 11-characters of Swift Code, please use BEASHKHHXXX )
    Account Number(USD): 015-515-68-02455-5
    Company Name: CHINA GOLDEN FIDELITY TRADING LIMITED
    (Please enter the complete company name)
    Beneficiary Address: 12/F Overseas Trust Bank BLDG, 160 Gloucester Rd, Wan Chai, HK

    Everybody should be alerted!

    1. Same for us with Ben Yeung. Very prompt replies even at night.
      His account info is as in the email to us as in picture I attached, the Account no. and company name are different.

      Bank name: The Bank of East Asia, Limited
      Bank Address: 10 Des Voeux Road Central, Hong Kong
      Bank Swift Code: BEASHKHHXXX
      Account Number(USD): 015-157-68-02283-4
      Company Name: HONG KONG WANBAOWEI TRADING CO., LIMITED (Please enter the complete company name)
      Beneficiary Address: Ft B 13F Prat Commercial Building 19 Prat Avenue Tsim Sha Tsui, KLN, HK

    That bad supplier had uses the same tactics as per written in User Experience, and stop reply while we asking him to fill in strict vendor set up document.

    1. Hi All,

      we were scammed as well. In the beginning very nice and imediate reaction even at night. After the payment nothing. Phone not working anymore and no reply to mails.

      The invoice was issued from YOUKONG TRADE LIMITED.

      Please do not let yourself be fooled.
