Business Venture Scam
| FAKE !! HENAN NONGKEN ZHENGZHOU COMMERCIAL COMPANY|
Be aware of this company, they have cheated us with a fake order.
In the beginning they send us an email like that they want to order 8600 wood chairs. They send us a drawning of a chair and also payment schedules and delivery schedules, it looks very professional. But its all fake, we had a few weeks email contact about the prices and products, and also sended a contract between our company and their company. When we both parties agreed about the contract. They send us an email like the one below.
A new week happy!
We have estimated your contract and we think the contract can be treated as the official version.
This contract with representatives'signatures from both sides will be notarized by Notary Office in China.
a highly efficient,stable and long-term relationship as we expected will be built on the basis of the first cooperation.
For a better cooperation, our CEO hopes your CEO could come to China recently to have a face-to-face conference, then we can sign an official letter contract.
we are looking forward to your reply!

Then they sended us an invitation letter, so we applied for the Visa, and went to Zhengzhou to meet them, they looks very nice and trustfull, and were very professional with the contract, stamps and everything. So during the meeting we talked about the contract and also about working together on long term and we talked about the notarization fee ( this is to pay to the chinese goverment that a chinese company can work together with us. ) so each party pay half. so if they received this amount they will send us a confirmation about it. But we never recieved this. after this payment, they send us an email again, see below
We have received your notary remittance! We will be notarized contract next week!
Our director will go to your country, attached is the passport, both both please send invitation letter,
Our bank will pay money, bank procedure to need eurs 2552, The total amount of 0.004
638000 * 0.004= 2552eurs
We hope that each party to pay eurs 1276 ,
please send the remittance in our account!
and they are also sending us an email that we need to send them an invitation letter, because their ceo is coming to visit us, and they send us a different pasport from another share holder, this was already very weird to us, because the man we have spoke to will come to the Netherlands they told us, but now they send someone else pasport.
After this they send us an email again an urgent email. Sounds very weird, and the english just get worse after we have met in Zhengzhou. It looks that a different person was emailing me.
They send us an email again see below.
Next week we will arrange the first batch of advance payment, please confirm as follows,
1... Government officials going to South Africa to visit, visit.
2... Their fees at present can't afford to our company. Need you to immediately take responsibility for up to 1260 euros.
3... They cost 1600 euros next we will give you contained in the contract.
4... Hope you understand. Please immediately to deal with so that we can successfully deal with the first remittance next week.
They tried serveral times to get money from us. As you can see in the emails. So watch out for these kind of emails they always use the same emails, when i have checked on scamdex. we are not the first one getting these emails.
We also have the picture from the person which we have met.
So please watch out !!! we have paid the notarization fee and the bank fee, the third time we didint do that. And they keep emailing about that we need to pay it before they can arrange the first payment.
So don't believe them!!!
All the numbers are un reachable now.!
