Yuanfan Electronics / Fake Company

1 Sri Lanka Review updated:
Contact information:

I am a registered user of Ali-baba. Abt 3 days ago, a company called Yuanfan Electronics contacted me, we discussed about the business, and agree the payments. But before the payments, I wanted to verify them, the contacted person did not give me any hint to verify them. Then I checked with many sources, found that address is wrong, no business registration, and also the location address provided in web site ( looks wrong. They tried to convince me that they are a big business for more than 10 years, but found that web site also new and not a used web site by customers. They were reluctant to give customer's name either.
I am copying below the skype discussion script for your more information. By reading it, you will understand, how he or she was trained for cheating the innocent customers. I do not know whether the contact was a female or male, all the chats were done through text only. His/Her phone number given to me

Please help me to verify whether he is a genuine or fake person.

    to complete this story, I received the shipment which suppose to be a mobiles...
    instead of these mobiles, I received 9 pcs of a duplicated beats head phones.

    Is there any one would like to buy beats headphones ;p "" Duplicated "" and still in its packing... 0_0.. I'll never sale it unless if I got a very attractive offer, hahahahaha

    note : they ship it by the normal post facilities and to be fair with them i saw a stamp of 150 USD on that pakage. while they was suppose to ship it via DHL :)

    actually this was my first time buying a personal materials from a chinees supplier.
