I orders two bugoboo pushchairs from this 2nd year gold supplier. Their main website is here (www.abidarugs.co.in/).
Initially they said the min order was 5 units. I replied to them to let them know I couldnt place that size order for 5 units until I had seen a smaller order delivered to a decent standard. Could they be interested in a tril order of 2 units to start with. They agreed, but as expected the unit price went from $300 to £350. Not a big deal I thought, fair enough.
Once I had paid $577 of the $700 they asked for, they presented me with this FedEx tracking number to assure me the product was ready to ship out. I then send the remaining $123. Once that was paid (through western union and collected the other side) they said they could not ship out less than 5 units. They said they were sorry about this but there was nothing they could do as the minimum order volumn regulation of the the UK was 5 untis. Absolute rubbish. They said they would send 5 units and I would pay the balance once they arrived safely. Then 3 hours later they said they couldnt send it until the payment for the additional 3 units was confirmed.
So, at this point I had sent them $700, been given a fake FedEx shipping number and had the order volumne more than double once the had received my money. They still insist its not a scam!! Watch out for this guy, Kafeel Ansari.
The photo they sent me of the pushchair also happens to be listed on ebay in the UK by a very reputable UK seller.
Watch out fot the weights on the FedEx tracker too, not to tell them where they went wrong, but the weights they said they sent to FedEx do not match those of a product I was expecting.
Very upseting experience. I had done everthing right, stuck to a gold seller, checked out their website. My mistake was to send the trial order money via Western Union. Dont ever ever do business with someone who doesnt have a facility to accept cards or bank transfer.
I'm glad I didnt fall for the 5 unit line, but sad I have lost out on $700 - I was hoping to be able to run a small business from home with the help of these guys.
