不要随意做O/A付款方式

今天早上打开邮件一看,有一封来自英国的询盘。为什么我判断是英国的,通过邮箱我访问了他公司的网站,结尾是uk。在我的印象中,英国可是资深的资本主义国家,人人绅士,个个礼貌。但是万万没想到,这个客户竟然是个骗子。且请往下看:

Dear Sir/ Madam
I would like to introduce to you that we are based in United
Kingdom(UK) registered with the
registry of companies under the company Law Act under the registered
number (00001346).

We are in needs of buying the below products from your valued

And shipping them to Kampala-Uganda where we have the big market.

So i will be pleased to receive your reply by quoting for us prices of

the above C&F transportation to Mombasa Kenya seaport, East-Africa.
Since we are basically interested in purchasing a huge volumes of
those items.

Therefore we are interested in starting business relationship with
your company by adding us to some of your products on your supply line

days, 120 days after the bill of lading day If this is okay with you
please send us an email and let us know the procedures so that we go
ahead with the business.

说要在货到之后在付款,并且货到之后的45,60,或者90天之后再付款。我一看就不对头,但是毅冰老师曾经说过,先不要着急下结论,具体分析之后再下结论。于是,我回复他的邮件,不提付款的事,先确定一下细节问题再说,从数量和认证方面入手。

我回复如下:

Hi Dear RAYMOND JOHN;

Good day;

Thanks for your inqury

Before quote;some information below is required;

1,What is your estimated annual usage?And what’s the quantity of
each
order?

没过多久,他回复了邮件;

So please prepare the proforma invoice cif Mombasa port Kenya and i
guess you are ready to work with us via O/A under export credit
insurance as stipulated in my previous email so that we can move

意思是说有50万个的数量,而且不需要认证,但是付款方式必须是前面提到的那样;

我继续不理会付款问题,问他是否需要样品;

Hi Dear RAYMOND JOHN;

Do you need some sample for a test?

他又回复;

Many thanks for your response we dont need any samples all what we
need is good quality。

50万个产品,一个样品都不要,要求我们直接发到非洲的港口去,正常人来说,难道这里面没有什么蹊跷吗?我想答案是肯定的;于是回复以下一封邮件,内容是说跟经理沟通过了,付款方式只能接受T/T;

Hi Dear RAYMOND JOHN;

Just right now ,i communicate with manager that the only payment way
be accepeted is T/T ,30% deposit; 70% before shipment.

立刻,他又回复了;语气几乎是乞求,还是坚持原来的付款方式。刚好,我今天阅读外贸相关的书籍,里面提到了付款问题。O/A的风险是最大的,虽然欧美人的信用要比其他国家也要好一点,但是,不管哪个国家都有人渣,不是么?

做外贸的朋友们注意了,凡是请求O/A付款的客户,能不做就不做吧,不然一个损失下来,可是兜不住的。不要随意做O/A付款方式
