1,000 dollars sounds like a tiny test order to me... sorry to hear about those troubles though. Business overseas is best accomplished with a native broker to negotiate and understand the local business environment.

We experienced much the same in establishing business in India over the past decade, lost tens of thousands of $$$ to thieves along the way. It is an unfortunate sign of the times.

If that is indeed the same person be carefull indeed. I know of two people who have been ripped off by the the people in the link to Ebay that BuicknDeere provided. I just found this out two days ago and I had posted that link somewhere here myself. I need to go put a warning there.

Ouch!!! Sounds like those crooks are about everywhere and up to no good! Best to get references when dealing with any new vendors especially in anything overseas and beyond the practical reach of US rule of law.

Buy cheap, buy twice!
Dealing with anyone on the other side of the world is always risky if your not there yourself in person. Hence always research who your buying from before handing over any cash.
