I paid full amount to SSG Trading, i company which claims to sell cars in Japan. i came to know this company via www.tradecarview.com. i paid 8500USD for a Toyota Landcruiser. at first things were okay, there was good comunication between us. these guys were supposed to ship this vehicle to mombasa kenya.its final destination was Kampala-Uganda. basically, it was my holiday car because i live in the uk. ssg trading refused to ship this vehicl on numerous occasions, their excuses were infact enormous. it was some times difficult to get it booked on the ship, so i kept on missing one ship after the other. when i became furious with them, they lamented that the export certificate for the car had expired, so, they had to apply for a new one and this could take another few weeks if not months.
I became furious with their behaviour, and gut instinct were telling me something has gone horribly wrong here, but they refused to conceed, they kept on re-assuring me that every thing is ok, my vehicle is already in the ship yard, just awaiting shipping. after exhuasting all avenues for their lies, it bacame apparent that there were no more excuses. they cut communication off, i emailed, rang in but no body responded to all my cries. imagine at this point, i became a begger after my 8500USD Transfered from my account into theirs on the 10th/01/08.
after a while, i recieved an email from one of them (James Raunaj) stating that his boss Saito disappeared with all the money, he doesn't know where he is. this was difficult to take in. but it had happened. tradecarview, is investigating this but i dont know the level this is at. they have done this to many people and they have gotten away with it. I need help, let's expose these crooks, why should these people become so greedy, get rich at our expense?
