Stage of relationship with the supplier at the time of the incident:
My contact with this company is with a person called Wendy. Below is her contact:
Wechat ID: bs15612709131
1. PO was made on 23 July 2019
2. I receive a sales contract number ZD0151019 dated 23 July 2019 (in which the delivery time is stated 7 days after receiving the Down Payment)
3. 30% Down Payment was made on 23 July 2019
4. No indication that the goods is ready for shipment after 7 days and Wendy kept on giving me excuses that the production line is busy and they are doing their best to deliver my order as soon as they can
5. I flew from Indonesia to China to visit them on 20 August 2019. Only when I am already on a train to Jinan city, Wendy told me she is on a business trip for an emergency issue in Vietnam and she will not be able to meet me. She did not even arrange other person to meet me. This meeting was arranged before I book my flight ticket and every thing to China.
6. Shipment of my order was only made on 11 September 2019
7. Wendy demand me to pay 70% of the balance upon sending me a scan copy of the BL on 13 September 2019. And I made my payment on 26 September 2019 after I get a confirmation from my client in Botswana that they saw the shipment coming in under the submitted BL number.
8. After payment, I demand Wendy to send me all original shipping (BL, Invoice, Packing List) document so that my client can do their custom clearance in Botswana. She send a TNT tracking number on 9 October 2019.
9. FROM THIS POINT THINGS ARE GETTING BAD! The Document she sent me via TNT got hold by custom in China and only arrive to Indonesia very close to the arrival date of the vessel to Botswana. And when I receive the TNT package, it was not the shipping document but a ream of A4 paper.
10. On 25 October 2019 when I check the shipment via tracking on the website, we found out that the shipment had been claimed. I check with my client and they said Botswana is on General Election holiday and it is impossible if someone had claimed the shipment.
11. After all the checking we found out that this whole thing was a scam:
– Wendy never send me original BL, invoice and packing list
– Wendy send me a fake BL scan copy (she must have tempered other original BL which happen to be the same delivery from China – Africa)
12. Up until this post is made, Wendy always give me excuses about getting me my refund and have not resolve this issue with me.
Checking business license of a Chinese company on a website is never enough as a due diligent of a Chinese Company.
Never place any payment if you never ever visit the company in person.
