DO NOT WORK WITH REVIVE SAFETY OR RED RIDING HOODS CO, LTD OUT OF CHINA! THEY STOLE $10,450 FROM ME AND $6,000 FROM ANOTHER US CUSTOMER! THEY WON’T STOP!
I have been scammed $10,450 USD by a Chinese manufacturer who is STILL ONLINE and STILL SEEKING NEW CUSTOMERS. I am sharing my story in hopes that you can avoid being their next victim. Please read my story and don’t do business with Suzhou Revive Products Co.,Ltd. or Red Reding Hoods Co.,Limited and do not work with Simmon Lee, who has scammed me and at least one other American (for over $6,000).
I issued an RFP for an Aluminum Powder product through Alibaba and a supplier contacted me through email. The first exchange was on May 2nd, 2017. Simmon, who is the managing director of Revive Safety, introduced me to “Frankie”, who became my sales person.
I did due diligence on Revive Safety, including asking for referrals and making sure they weren't on scam sites. I wired them $10,450.00 on May 25th, 2017. I have copies of the contract, purchase order, their bank information and the wire confirmation.
About a month later, the company stopped responding to my emails and “Frankie” was no longer responsive to WhatsApp or Skype (when he was getting my business, he always responded within 12 hours). I decided to reach out to the customer in the U.S. they gave me when I asked for a “reference.” This person (Phil out of Cincinnati) also was having problems getting his product delivered on time. As of today, he is also a victim of theft to the tune of $6,000.
Simmon, the owner, responded to a couple of emails I sent him when I mentioned Phil in the subject line with short responses like “don’t worry” or “Yes I will.” His last response was on July 30th and he hasn’t responded to pleads, threats, reason, etc. since then.
A Chinese translator offered to help me try to get a hold of them within China. They didn’t pick up phones and she found information concerning their company and other investigations, so I don’t think this is the first time this has happened.
The last response I received from the company was on June 19th, when Simmon assured me the product was coming. The company has not delivered my product, refunded me or refunded the other customer and has gone completely silent for over a month.
I have been working with our bank since mid-June to get our money back and they have been communicating with Revive Safety’s bank and the bank has not received permission from the company to credit the funds back to my account.
