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.
