Why am I being scammed by a China Supplier?

I am very confused as to why I sent my money in good faith through western union to a company in China have they not contacted me nor sent my merchandise?  I communicated with this company for 2 weeks before I sent the money. As soon as it was sent they picked it up, sent me invalid tracking information and I haven't heard from them since.Will it be wrong of me to turn them over to Western Union and Money Gram as scam artists?  Will it be wrong of me to ruin their reputation over here by posting their name and information online?I am very angry.  I have lost $2800 Thank you! [em6]

I got scammed to man. I feel your pain. I got scammed out of $1400 last week. I did the same thing I thought that a gold supplier means there really well. Apparently that means nothing to me anymore. DO NOT TRUST ANYONE ANYMORE. That’s my theory. I still have scammers sending me great price list's. I tell them the only way I’m going to pay you is C O D. If not then F off. I think Alibaba is the one to blame. You do your research and they seem to be ok. But after you send the money its like they disappear off the face of the earth. The next day there back and scamming another innocent hard working person... I hope those scammers get what they deserve. Oh by the way I was scammed by this guy Zhuhai Microdao Technology Co., Ltd. Longyan Branch. I talked to a lady named Jenny Liu her E-mail adress is jennyfay@live.cn. So next time please becareful.

If you sent $2800 via WU then chances are you were not dealing with a Chinese supplier but instead a Chinese scammer. To be fair these two should not be categorized together as a scammer does not actually have any product to sell nor any intention of sending what he/she says they will send.What did you do to protect yourself BEFORE you sent cash half way around the world? What checks did you do to find out whether the seller was legit or not?If someone put an ad in a newspaper in the US offering whatever product you tried to buy at the prices you paid for it and then asked you to send them cash in an envelope would you send it? I doubt it. So why send WU payment half way arond the world as it is essentially the same thing.

Hi, I am sorry to hear that.They are NOT Alibaba suppiler. their website http://www.xinli-alibaba.com/ is FAKE. website of an Alibaba suppiler ONLY can be www.companyname.en.alibaba.com . Some scammers make their websites look like alibaba supplier to cheat customers. One of my client was also cheated by scammer in the same way. Next time you should be careful. Check their website carefully to make sure they are genuine Alibaba golden supplier.

I am confused too. Same thing happened to me. I would do all that I could. I am posting their name everywhere and telling anyone I can find on here who will listen. I sent my money after speaking with them for about 2 or 3 weeks and they sent me fake, broken pieces that they put in new boxes. Basically, they mailed me garbage. The company was Nanchang Mingbotrade Industries. I feel for you. I lost as much on this venture. It makes it bad for all the hard workers out there who are decent and doing a good job[em4]
