I have recently bought a 500 AUD camera from a site seemingly in HK named hk-electronic.
THey do not accept PayPal payment and offer people to pay by Western Union. I have paid the money and never received the camera!!!

Does anyone have the same experience with them...

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but you were scammed. That website is fake.

The following information is from someone at http://www.scamwarners.com/forum/index.php

Quote:
The key to this bit of evidence is on their payment and shipment page, which states:

Actually Western Union or Bank Wire Transfer we accept ,we dont have Paypal for Payment .we have five international shippment styles : EMS UPS DHL TNT FEDEX to ship products to customers home address directly
It will take 4-7 working days ,more or less.it will be no delay ,except Festival by law and weekend.so delayed maybe with 2 days

Western Union and bank transfer = Scam

They also have a completely unsecured page here: <<www.hk-electronic.com/reg.asp>> where they ask for personal info.


The best thing to remember is when ever someone ask you to send money via any money transfer service is to do a google search. Even then it might not come up as a scam because they may not have been reported.

If you would like you can report this to the IC3. While you will NOT get your money back at least the IC3 will know about it. They may even put it on a warning report.

If you go to http://maps.google.com/ and enter Cheong Sun Tower, Wing Lok Street, Hong Kong into the search bar, click on the image on the left side and you will see that the address from the site is not this image
