Yes it`s true i was scammed by this company who is a free member of alibaba. I put my trust knowing in the end they will took my money just like that with no product delivery. I try to email them but they didn`t replied to my email, until i reported them to alibaba support team and pull out their membership to the site. I try to google them and contact their number but it was a fake number.

Yesterday, i try to google them again and to my surprised they are on another trading website again with the same gimmick to lure their victims. What shall i do now, how will i trap them to get my money back. Since they are from UK and i was in USA i don`t know how to get my money again. I already report them to authorities but they have no feebback to my case.

My plan is to pose as a buyer with different tag, then get their contact number or email then report it again to authorities. Or if you guys have a better idea on how to trap them, i will highly appreciate it.

Hope to hear from you guys. 10Q.

Thanks bro,i don`t want to disclose any info for now for security purposes. i already informed the ic3 before but no reply from them. But now i spot them again, i will pose as a buyer to get some pertinent info from them then report it to ic3.

Thanks again, really appreciate it. Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

Alibaba is a scam website and anyone serious should avoid this place alltogether and try to get it closed down.

Alibaba has nothing legitimate whatsoever, except a few people who sell damaged/used goods. Whatever you can do, avoid them.

IC3 is the FBI's internet crime division. Its doubtfull you will get a reply. But they will look into it. If its a company they can go after they will. If its another country's problem they will forward it to that countries internet crimes divisions.
