Dear all,

we also had a very bad experience , three years ago.
Our company is a travel agency, we got a request for service for 150 people, which would stay 7 days in our country and they needed complete service :D ....It was a good business opportunity for us ....
In short : we really did our best and sent them an offer...they accepted , the time of the planned arrival of the group was fast , we worked on a contract and paying a deposit....everything OK, but....they asked our director come to China, because- under on Chinese law the contract must be signed in China (face to face ) .We accepted, because we did not doubt, we did not see their motive and the way to do something bad....So, we organized flights, accommodation, documents, everything needed for the business trip in China....these people , scammers were at the address , our director had a meeting with them, contract signed...the director returned home and we waited the deposit for service for group but- the Chinese suddenly asked us to pay part of the costs of the contract -notaries , 1.000 EURO....OK, we paid ....and there was the end...we lost contact with them, never answered us again....So, they cheat companies for a value of 1.000 EURO! Plus all our travel costs! (that money they did not take but it goes to the sum of our loss)...We really tried to inform the police in China, the ministries and all those responsible but....We were tried about prevent these people from doing scams again ....
Now, we get similar e-mails again ( a few copies below) .....We are not going to China, you know that :D :D Take care, be careful , do not respond never to similar e-mails !!!

These are the new attempts to get rid of this email:henan87travel@hnts-tourism.com> :

@Pop Thank you for your post warning others about this type of scam. One thing that may help is if you sent a report to the Chinese embassy in your area.

While any government likes money coming into their country they do not want their countries reputation to suffer. If the embassy receives enough complaints they will probably act to defend the reputation of their country.

The Chinese government is always concerned about their international reputation. If you receive no reply then a letter to your local media could produce results.

Hi all!

I run a Norwegian travel agency, and we've also just received a request from this email address. I did suspect some kind of spam as the request never mentioned our region or what they wanted to do here other than very general stuff like "attractions, golf, mountains, lakes". Thank you though for sharing your experience, I will report this to the Norwegian Travel Network, so that no more people suffer this scam!

Hi all - also we here in Mexico received such mails - nevertheless not from chenhzgs2@vip.163.com but now already one digit more ahead with
chenhzgs3@vip.163.com (I suppose, that person already had to change his/her address).
I did not answer, since already before, we had such same experience (but we had stopped it when such sudden and surprising "need to travel to China" had come up, and ) only with another person from:

Nor can we in Mexcellence Travel accept to discuss details lateron during any meeting, since our deadline is in the coming days.

Therefore, we sorrowly announce herewith, that our service offer is cancelled and that Mexcellence Travel will not provide any service, nor any contract is signed by our side.

Best regards,

Dear Wendy,

Thank you very much for your response to FXXXX

The following steps, and down here in order of chronology, will have to be realised in order to get this group operated:

[LIST]
[*]1) We are checking and assuring availability and blocking of services
[*]2) With confirmed assuring and blocking of services, we send again our contract, together with the advise about assured services
[*]3) You would then give your acknowledgement and confirmation of blocked/assured services by filling out the contract with your exact and full company dates (name, address, phone number, tax number) and signing the contract and OK for blocked services
[*]4) Upon receivel of this filled out and signed contract, we return the contract with our signature
[*]5) Upon sent contract back, the 50% garantuee deposit is due immediately by your side to be transferred to your bank account
[*]6) On the marked time limits before arrival, the full resting payment on 100% of services will be due
[/LIST]

In case of any of above shown steps not to be fullfilled, the whole service arrangements will automatically be cancelled without any further compromise for any of involved parties.

Here an important detail: we would not come to China for company visit or any other of similar details. Our offer does NOT include any prior trip to visit companies abroad in other countries. Of course, here in Mexico City, when your group arrives, we from Mexcellence Travel will visit your clients as per assistance of one of our company representatives.

Please, confirm all above shown details and steps. Only with such confirmation we can get forward with this group handling.

(please, review also FXXXX’s mail, in which also she requests the full company dates, which also include address)

Best regards,

OXXXX
