Craigslist, Ebay and other online buying/selling scams.

I contacted some suppliers on the website of Alibaba.com to get latest price of computer related products. As a response, i received many emails from different suppliers on my yahoo mail inbox offering their products and their price lists and offering contact through skype. I did contact some of them by e-mails and through skype and for one order i sent the money ($750) through Western Union.
As soon as the supplier received the money he said that i will have to double the sum of money (send another $750) in order to complete the minimum order and that he is a new employee and did not know about the minimum order. I refused and asked him to send the money back. He accepted but nothing was received. I contacted him again when he said that i will have to wait for 25 days for refund. I made my search and knew that 25 days are enough to drop my right for the money.

These are the suppliers info:
This is the part by which he introduced himself on first e-mail: "This is seller John from Guangzhou Ceji Electronic Trade Co.,Ltd.Nice to talk with you. We sincerely hope we can do business base on mutual trust and win-win purpose. when you check our products list,if you tell us which model and the quantity you require, we shall calculate the total price for you.

chances are good your money is gone forever, and you will never see any product, I'm sorry to tell you. Education is the best defense we have against scammers. Here is a good article about how to avoid scam websites and scammers : http://419advancefeefraud.blogspot.com/ ... their.html

Never ever send money by bank or wire transfer to someone you don't know. Real Chinese businesses must have a bank account in the name of their business, not a personal account. See this article for more information about purchasing from China and the risks of it.
