They have not sent h Original documents and again ask us to pay USD $ 3000 for destination clearing and transportation charges to our doorsteps. For this, we strictly told them that our price terms are CIF, Chennai Port. We don’t need your logistics company service for clearing this shipment at the destination port. Hence send us our original documents immediately; we will have our own regular logistics company. But they told once you paid this USD $ 3000 after that only we will send you the documents
