My understanding is that a VAT number is issued to ONE company. Why are so many using it?

Apple are very protective of their products and restrict who can sell them. They usually do not discount their products, so any organisation who advertises them cheaper than recommended retail is a scam.

Hello guys,
Could someone check on this add.?
http://bizcenter.bebas-hutang.com/for-saleapple-iphone-4gipad2nokia-n8nokia-e7nikon-camerablackberry-torch-9800/

What if someone already made a payment through Western Union? The seller gave all details for the transection.
Thanks,
Lie.
I looked through that for you... there's no way that's real, i'm not sure on the electronics, but there is NO way a Stratocaster from 1957 is 350$, and same with the telecaster there.
I think thar be a scam in these waters

Hello

Hello, recently i've found a new website, with very low prices on electronics, and i would like to know if it is just another scam website or this one is for real!

I've seen that it's domain was created on 12.06.2011

the website address is http://elec-tao.com or http://w.usa.1204.net/

this is their details of payment, through bank transfer :
Detailed payment information:
Name of bank: Bank of China
Beneficiary : Bo Jiang
Beneficiary Address: NO.006 of Gongye road, Nanyang Henan China
Bank Name: Bank of China NanYang Branch HeNan Province P.R.China
Swift Code<BIC>:BKCHCNBJ 530
Bank Account<IBAN>:62166 18016 00012 4053
Bank Address: NO.129,QiYi Road,NanYang HeNan China
post code:473000
By the way, i've made the order to find other details, but i didn't made the payment.

From e-mail :
"Dear friend,

Congratulations!

You have bought our company product successfully,please read the following and confirm back with thanks!And we will package your product accordingly!"

"Please keep this information because it's important for you to complete the bank transfer.After you make the payment, please inform us asap and send us the bank receipt to our email.After we confirm your payment, we will send you the product at once and send the track number to your email.You can receive the product within 4-6 days.

Please keep contact!

Thank you very much!

Have a good time!"
I've sent them a reply, in which i'm asking if i can pay through paypal; this is their answer:
"Dear friend

Thank you for your letter!

As you know, the more times we accept paypal, the more costs we will be required to pay for the fees, so payment by paypal only for some large orders. To some extent, we just accept payment by western union and bank transfer for small order because they are very easy and convenient for both of us and can save us more money.

If you have other questions or need any items, please feel free to contact us through e-mail or can send message to us.

we look forward to doing business with you in the future.

Awaiting for your reply!

Best regards"

@Yayo. You did not mention that they advocate Western union as one of their payment methods. I would be very careful of any internet electronic company.

Payment

We can accept Paypal and Western Union as the methods of payment now. The proceed is :



1.You choose the item and tell us the quantity. Contact us online or email us to confirm the total value.
MSN: info@elec-tao.com

Email : info@elec-tao.com

2.You make order and payment . If you choose PayPal ,please email me for the paypal account. for first deal , we will send the goods after three days .If you choose the W/U , please give us the MTCN. We can send goods on the next day.



3.We send the goods . You will be sent the tracking number.


Our bank information is :



Western Union information(please give us the MTCN and payer's full name .
First name: XXX
Last name(Surname): XXX
Address: NO.006 of Gongye road Nanyang Henan China

Post code:473000
Regarding paypal they say:
PayPpal:


Because there are many frauds in Nigeria that use fake paypal to pay in order to deceive our products,so if you want to use paypal payment please enquire customer service MSN or email for paypal account.

MSN: info@elec-tao.com

Email : info@elec-tao.com

You will find the payment information when you place the order.
What has scams in Nigeria got to do with them?

The more I read about them the more convinced I am that it would not be a good idea to deal with them.

If you have a problem where will you go to fix it? Will you fly to China to sort out a deal for a couple of hundred dollars?

An examination of the link will answer many of your questions. Many of the Chinese electronic sites are scams. it would be wise to buy from a place that you can go to if anything was to go wrong.

It would also be wise to be aware that purchasing fake or copy products are illegal in many countries and you will have no redress if you are found to be involved in importing illegal copies.

Here is some more reading that involves the bank you are talking about. It may give you some idea about dealing with some Chinese electronics companies.

I've entered on the first link on this forum page, and noticed that, that website has the same layout and design as this one, and the thing that made me think that this is a scam, was, that, if the company exist since 1993, why there aren't any reviews, or many products...

1993? The website is very new and only registered for one year. Another red flag I think.

i've decided to not make the transaction, i've had my doubts, and you have strengthened them :D

Thank you!

I think this is totally a scam website, hope there won't be any buyers!:)
 
Well thank you for sharing it with us but there are much more than these websites. People make it on daily basis and earn money and then no one knows where are the moderators of site.
