  • ORDER DELIVERED, BUT INVOICE WAS UNPAID

    $3,514.50Unresolved

    This person, Sammy Dale ( IG mrsammydee ) ordered 5100 pcs of fish spa to us for total invoice amount of USD 3514.50. And we delivered them by Lufthansa Cargo on July 31-2013.

    Prior to deliver the order, we asked him to send his payment receipt as proof that payment has been done, but he lied. He said " Done", but in fact, the payment never been made. We believe because it wasn't our 1st shipment, but it the 18th shipment.

    Later, when he had received the order, he said that the fish of 40% of the shipment ( equal to 4 boxes ) were dead. We asked him photos for proofing his words but he never sent them. We asked directly to Lufthansa Cargo at Frankfurt airport, and they said all fishes were OK and no dead found. We have evidence from Lufthansa for this report.

    A few weeks later when we asked payment again from him, he threaten us and insulted us with his words. And he blocked our phone calls.

    So beware with this person.

He will collect your funds and block your number from his phone so you can't contact him.. Will say give him 15min and then you can go collect the money you was trying to flip and you will be out of luck. He wins you lose be careful that number is 2316830473 his name ERIC BALDWIN
