Want to list down some unrealistic claims given by companies, and when investigated further found out to be fake.
I was interested in buying a Iphone for cheap from US or UK for cheap. I searched most B2B sites. Alibaba, go4business. I found several companies in Indonesia offering Iphone 4S for as less as $450 for a 64 GB. Upon initial mail contact everything seems to be fine But upon further probing like calling on the number they have given turned out to be wrong or permanently not reachable.
these were the websites.
- This guys phone numbers has a voice mail always. never got any person at the other end. I tried 4 times diffrent times for two days.
then i came across this site, they are listed on alibaba also
A lady picks up the number given on website and says its textile shop no siaa.
A close look at 'about us' & terms & conditions of both sites i saw they are exactly the same except company names are changes, What a co-incidence, both are in java, indonesia also.
So pls dont risk your money on this. The products listed are unrealistically cheap.
One more company i came across i n my search was guy names Silas Giles. Am sure tat's not a real name.
address he gave me was
COMMUNICATION ENTERPRISE LIMITED
204A CAMBRIDGE HEATH ROAD
Company No. 03278734
Phone: + 44 7 03 5 99 7 058
I saw this phone number was listed by someone on this website as a fraud alert- he deliberaltely put spaces in the number so a direct copy paste search would return nothing
. Actually i was almost convinced by his mails to wire him money. Then he said he has an agent in india and i spoke to Ms. Deepali from mumbai claiming to be business agent. She never agreed for a face to face meeting as i offered to pick up the product in person and pay in cash. She insisted i transfer the money and she will send the product!!!! How strange. I never send any money then. This Silas mail me back putting across racist remarks about indians.
I thought highlighting both these cases.
