Lures Master Co. Ltd./ Fishing Lures / Failure to deliver
Was contacted by Mr Anton Simson, Lures Master Co. Ltd. Luresmaster@gmail.com in response to my Buying Lead on Alilbaba .com. We agreed on his company suppling me with 140 Rapala Fishing Lures for the price of $165.00 USD. That was to include Shipping to my place of business in the USA, by Fed EX company. I was to receive my order with-in 3 to 5 days. I also told him I wanted to buy some Yo-Zuri Fishing Lures. We agreed on shipping me 300 Rapala Fishing Lures each month along with An undetermined amount of Yo-Zuri fishing Lures. I asked to purchase more item immediately. He told me that we must complete this first deal before I could get more. I was told to send the Money by Western Union to his Manager. Mr Paul Louis, Medan, Indonesia. And send him the MTCN number. The fee to send it was $22.00 US, so I was out of pocket $187. This was 5/20/08. I sent him the MTCN number. The next day I received an email saying his manager would not allow him to complete the deal until I purchased 4 additional Units Of Lures. He was the one who would not let me buy more until this deal was complete. I told Mr. Anton Simson that I was sending no more money in that fashion, and he could send me the Lures I had paid for or return my money. That was 5/21/08. I have not heard from them since. I have sent numerous emails to Mr Simson, Luresmaster Company, and Mr Lewis. I tried contacting them by the phone number listed on Alibaba.com, and was hung up on several times. I have sent several emails to Alibaba.com that has not been answered. I feel that I have been a victim of Fraud, and that Alibaba.com must condone this action, since Mr Anton Simson and Lures Master Co. Ltd are still doing business on Alibaba.com. Most of my contact was through Ailibaba so they have the access to the emails. I also told them I would be Glad to furnish them with all of the communication and the Western Union Receipt. Still no response from Alibaba.Com. Next I will try sending a letter to my Congressman, the Embassy Officials in both Countries, and any Internet Trading Organization.
