Hi All, Ginger Guan is Fraud work with Fred Gonsalves Northwest wholesale network is scam be aware..

The story started when I found Ginger Guan from exporters website. She goes by the company name ANGELINE INTERNATIONAL LLC, 130 Prospect St, Jersey City, NJ, 07303

She claimed to sell ipods, iphones and other apple products. She sent me the price list. She told me that she works with Fred Gonsalves and that he is the actual supplier that has many connections with wholesalers. I called Ginger Guan many times and placed order for Mac books.

They sound legit initially they offer me that they can do LOC or any other secure payment method.

I was in touch with Ginger Guan and fred gonsalves for two months that how we can secure this deal.

A lot of ups and down dealing with them.. Finally they convince me to make advance payment of 30% and we will get your apple products in bonded warehouse so you can inspect and release the rest of the payment and take your products.

Sounds really legit .. I wired 7000 in Fred Gonsalves account in August in his Bank of America account opend in California... Thats it once i deposit the money and after two weeks i inquire about the products they start giving me excuses that supplier is having issues in Shenzen China to source the products, or some sports activities are going on in china and thats why its a delay in your order Same all story over and over

This is it once after one month i knew i got scammed .. All please be aware doing business with them once you trust them and transfer 30 % advance payment to them you will not get anything... Ginger Guan is scam resident of jersey city NJ, Fred Gonsalves is scam ( Northwest wholesale network ) They all work together..

I would like to cooperate with every body who got scammed by Ginger Guan and Fred Gonsalves so we can start a law suit and get our money back. I have all the supporting documents, emails, and wire papers.

Thank you

Neil

Ginger Guan is NOT a fraudster.

AUTHOR: Len - ()

Fred is the real criminal here.  He misrepresented himself and lied to Ginger just like he did me and my associates.  I wish this article was published sooner, but Ginger is honest as they come. You should delete this article about her and focus it about Fred.  He is the real scumbag and guy who has their money too.

Know the Truth about Ginger Guan

AUTHOR: No Scammer - ()

To All reading this blog,

I am thankful for ripoffreport.com for the venue to bring real scammers to light, and also for their platform to file rebuttals.  Yes, without question, Fred Gonsalves was a scam.  He conned me into thinking that he was a getting product directly from Apple and that he had a long standing business relationship with them.  

I was a broker at the time, and yes, 2 of my customers got scammed for deposits.  On the second post here in this site are the details from my side, in order not to be repetitive, let me just say that I never accepted money nor invoiced them, but I did take their orders, and of course, as all bad things do, it was a poor reflection on me because I brokered the deal, not because I had financial responsibility in it contractually or otherwise. 

I was not a willing or knowing part of Fred Gonsalves's scams and frauds, nor was I aware that he was a scam artist when I was working with him.  Once known to me, I discontinued working with him, and discontinued all contact with him. I am more than willing to answer any questions regarding those issues which transpired several years ago with Fred.  I also would like to see him brought to justice.

The truth is one customer lost $7000, another $21000, all three of us conned into thinking he was a legit supplier who had a run of bad luck.  There are other brokers out there that had similar experiences with Fred Gonsalves, it was unfortunately not an isolated incident.  Pathalogical liars/cons such as he are so good they are capable of conning anyone into believing whatever he wants them to believe.  

Beware!  Even good honest business people like myself can get conned.  I have the same advice now as then, only use secure payment methods where your money is absolutely covered and guaranteed against loss.  Since that experience with Fred Gonsalves, I refuse to work with anyone who requires payments which are not done through third party escrow freight forwarders, ILC or payment directly to the factory.  

KYC (Know your customer) as far as I am concerned also applies to suppliers.  Please people, know where your money is going and when someone gives you good advice to pay by secure means, take that advice.  Do not be so much in a hurry that you bypass those safety measures just to get your product faster.  Sometimes a few days makes the difference between actually getting product or losing your funds.  

Anyone selling you product, who cares about you and your security above their profit will always provide you with payment options which have protection for you.

AUTHOR: uuuuz - (United States of America)

Fred Gonsalves has a long history or theft and fraud.  He seems to get away with it on a regular basis because he does his fraud in other states and not where he lives.  He is being investigated by the police in Tehama County however so if you want he to get what he deserves then contact the detective department in Tehama County and file a police report against him.  The number is 530-529-7900.  This is the link to the SHeriff's Department where you can file a criminal complaint online.
