ID#103: Cheated by an importer from USA

Claim amount: 10.400 USD

Status: Collecting offers


My company is an exporter of the handmade rugs from India. We have sent a shipment worth USD 10.400 on Sep. 16, 2010 to a USA buyer called XXXX INC and name of the person whom I was in conversation with is AAAA.

The shipment has been sent by sea and payment terms were: 10% - CAD, 45% - 90 days and 45% - 180 days after the delivery. All necessary documents have been sent to his bank, HHHH Bank by my bank, Punjab National Bank. The buyer paid 10% and received the shipment (he sent me an email that he had got the shipment) but after 90 days he said he would pay me after some time but again and again he made the false commitments.

Finally in January 2011 he sent me an email stating that he would pay me a full amount on January 25th, 2011 as he supposed to get a big check at that time. I sent him an email on January 27th asking to pay. He replied that he was in Boston and next week he would take care of me.

Next week he suddenly got disappeared and stopped replying my emails and picking up my phones. He also removed me from his facebook friend list.

By now it has been more than 150 days he didn´t pay me anything except the 10% and now he is neither willing to talk to me on phone no reply my emails. I can see his clear intention to cheat me.

As far as I know this company still exists.

I am looking for a law firm or debt collection company to help me with this matter.
