A new scam is coming! Foreign Traders Should Be Alert

The flowing water pattern, the iron-clad deception.

A new scam is coming! Foreign Traders Should Be Alert
A new scam is coming! Foreign Traders Should Be Alert

Some swindlers are setting a trap by taking advantage of the seller’s eagerness to make a deal. Please keep your eyes open! Today, let’s list some tricks, hoping to avoid unnecessary losses for everyone.

01, cheat test fee The fraudster posing as a Malaysian buyer is currently experiencing a fierce “performance” attack. Several foreign traders reported meeting him at the Fubu Forum. Some people are alert and some have already been recruited.

Specific typical “set up” way is like this:

The swindler claimed to be a Malaysian buyer and showed his purchasing intention. He asked you to send a catalogue to order a cabinet after specifying a product and asked you to send samples to a testing company in Guangzhou for testing. The samples are worthless, and the cheater’s main purpose is to cheat the testing fee.

Some sellers are eager to make the order. Even if they have doubts in their hearts, they feel that the inspection fee of 1,000-2,000 yuan is not a big problem, so they pay for the inspection. After that, the buyers disappear or postpone the order. The testing company, on the other hand, left itself out and said that it was the seller’s and buyer’s business and had nothing to do with them.

Typical Features: Buyers are not picky about products, but insist on appointing unknown testing organizations.
If you meet a similar buyer, you can first search the name of the buyer and the name of the testing organization to see if you have been recruited by unfortunate friends. In addition, it can be agreed with the buyer that the seller can pay the inspection fee, but the inspection fee is deducted from the purchase price of the bulk goods after ordering. If you ask a few more questions, it is easy for cheats to show their feet.

Don’t you think cheats can take a fancy to this little money? Mosquito meat is also meat. Some swindlers went for thousands of small pieces. The victims even felt that it was not worth pursuing after being cheated, thus making the swindlers cheap.

02, cheat translation fee This is also a form of swindling “small money”. This form of swindling has existed for several years and has not stopped for several years. As the year draws to a close, this kind of “little swindler” has resurrected anyway, following the fish in troubled waters.
Typical routine:

The swindler added the seller’s contact information as a Chinese and provided business cards of overseas buyers (usually Middle Eastern buyers, because few people know Arabic). Then the buyer began to send e-mails to the seller, one by one looking sincere.

Then the contact person in China said that the buyer wanted to visit the factory. All the air tickets and hotels were booked and even the flight number could be provided. He is a minor language translator of the translation company and will accompany this customer to the seller’s side, but the seller is required to pay his translation fee in advance, which is not much, basically not more than 1,000 yuan.

If the seller asks why the buyer cannot pay the money, the middleman will find all kinds of reasons and then press whether he wants the buyer or not. If the seller is in a hurry for a while, it is easy to get paid. When you pick up the so-called “customers” at that time, you will find that you are completely stupid.

Typical features: Middle Eastern buyers need to see the factory, the middleman is a translator, and the seller has to pay for the expenses.

03, cheat goods This is a large-scale fraud case uncovered only a few days ago in Yiwu. Five containers worth 2.45 million yuan of goods were recovered.

The swindler company is called Yiwu Rast Import and Export Co., Ltd. At the end of November, a translator took two buyers to Yiwu International Trade City to place an order. He casually walked into a shop and said that the goods were good and there was no counter-offer. He immediately placed an order of tens of thousands of yuan. The translator told them again that the buyer’s shop was in France and business was doing very well. Money was not a problem. Don’t worry.

Under normal circumstances, the seller will not be so easy to win, but the swindler turned to give the seller a call, saying that the cabinet was not large enough and the order was reduced by half. The seller thought, where can cheats have this operation, isn’t it better to cheat as much as possible? Moreover, after cutting off half of the orders, the value of the goods was not too high, so they were credulous. The swindler paid only a deposit from 800 yuan and promised to pay for the goods in 20 days. After that, the seller sent 80 pieces of goods to the designated warehouse.
After the event, the seller responded that the situation was wrong and rushed to the registered address of the fraud company. At this time, more than 10 business households were already on the scene. After discussion, everyone felt that the company might be really deceiving the goods and called the police.

The police investigation found that the company started in October this year and did not register with the Market Supervision Bureau. The boss is Indian. From November to early December, the company arranged interpreters to accompany an Iranian customer and a Nepalese customer to the market to purchase goods worth more than 3 million yuan, including toys, hardware and daily necessities, from more than 100 business households.

The two foreign businessmen never bargain for orders, frequently change temporary interpreters, rent multiple receiving warehouses, and deliberately conceal their identities, claiming to be British and Canadian. Zhang also has a big problem. He intentionally conceals the identity of foreigners and the whereabouts of the goods and is suspected of fraud.

  • Lack of customers in foreign trade? In fact, the thinking is too narrow

    Recently, it is the peak season for foreign trade. Many foreign trade companies are busy with their orders. But there are also few customers who worry about it. What is better in our business is that we serve more customers and have more knowledge. What I often hear is: our business is not good, our business is special, and our business has few customers. This is a typical way of developing customers without opening their minds. For example, there is a copper carving customer who uses Ding Yi to develop foreign carpet dealers and gardening companies. Because customers who make long red carpets have to put handicraft decorations on both sides of the carpets, the isolated carpets are not of good quality. Garden design companies not only plant trees, but also put statues. This is like the current popularity of the small B market. Furniture dealers have begun to develop individual designers in foreign trade. Although their products are scattered, the volume is still quite large at the end of the year. To do foreign trade, to do small, can…

  • Perfect! This foreign trade export tax refund process will definitely be used if you study early

    Some small partners strongly demand to see the foreign trade export tax rebate process, then let’s meet today 1. Why is there an export tax rebate? The state will return the value-added tax and consumption tax actually undertaken in the domestic production and circulation links before exporting the exported goods to the exporting enterprises after the goods are declared for export, so that the exported goods can enter the international market at a price excluding tax and avoid international double taxation. Because foreign countries will levy value-added tax and customs duties on the goods we sold in the past, the tax burden on our exports will be zero, so that even if foreigners levy a tax, we can compete fairly with foreign goods. 2. foreign trade enterprises export tax rebate process Similarly, for export, production enterprises should go through the process of exemption, credit and refund, while foreign trade enterprises are relatively simple.

  • China’s Foreign Trade Enterprises Struggle Against the Current

    At present, the global economic growth is slowing down and external uncertainties are increasing. The latest World Economic Outlook Report released by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) lowered the growth rate of the world economy in 2019 to 3%, down 0.2 percentage points from the forecast in July this year. Under this background, many foreign trade enterprises are facing greater export pressure. China’s foreign trade enterprises have been exploring countermeasures from the perspective of their respective industries’ development. The global economic situation has a greater impact on exports. “Seven or eight years ago, our export of plush toys to the South American market was quite good, but in the past two years, the South American market economy fluctuated greatly, and our export volume fell by about 40%.” Yu Yun, business manager of Nanjing Dadong Toys Co., Ltd., said in an interview with the International Business News that the company’s export market is mainly in Europe at present, but the purchasing intention of European customers is not very strong due to the relatively severe global economic situation. “On the one hand,…
