Stage of relationship with the supplier at the time of the incident:
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”, email@example.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.
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…??
