DETAILS OF THE TRANSACTIONS

RE: BILL OF LADING NO. 558864080 AND  BILL OF LADING NO. 865019539

1)    WE HAVE ORDERED ON FOB BASIS, 1CONTAINER OF MILK PRODUCTS FROM OUR SUPPLIER AS PER BILL OF LADING REF. 558864080 AND 2 FCLS OF  RICE FROM OUR REGULAR SUPPLIER AND SHIPPED AS PER ABOVE BILL OF LADING REF. 865019539.

2)    OUR SHIPMENT CONTRACTS WITH OUR SUPPLIERS WERE ON BASIS FOB  WITH FREIGHT TO BE PAID AT DESTINATION.

3)    FREIGHT WAS BOOKED BY US THROUGH LOCAL SHIPPING AGENT.

4)   OUR SUPPLIERS DELIVERED THE CARGO IN CONTAINER NUMBERS MRKU-763890-0  AND MRKU-651245-6 ,  MSKU-286819-0   TO MAERSK LINE VESSEL.

5)    CLEAR INSTRUCTIONS WITH NAME OF OUR SUPPLIERS AS SHIPPER WERE GIVEN FOR THE PREPARATION AND ISSUANCE OF THE BILL OF LADINGS.

6)    OUR LOCAL AGENT CONTACTED THEIR FREIGHT FORWARDER IN UK THOMPSON LOGISTICS LTD TO PREPARE AND ISSUE  BILL OF LADINGS AS PER OUR INSTRUCTIONS.

7)    VESSEL SAILED AND REACHED DESTINATION ON 8TH JAN. 2013 FOR ONE CONTAINER 

8)    VESSEL SAILED  AND ALREADY REACHED DESTINATION ON 17TH JAN. 2013 FOR TWO CONTAINERS

9)    SINCE THE TIME THE VESSELS LEFT THE PORTS OF ORIGIN, BOTH OUR SUPPLIERS HAVE BEEN RUNNING AFTER MAERSK AND THOMPSON LOGISTICS LTD UK TO ISSUE AND DELIVER TO THEM THEIR RESPECTIVE BILL OF LADINGS FOR THE CARGO DELIVERED.

10) WITHOUT THE ORIGINAL BILL OF LADINGS THE DELIVERY OF THE CARGO CANNOT BE EFFECTED TO US. 

11) WE CAME TO KNOW THAT THOMPSON LOGISTICS LTD UK HAS ILLEGALLY PREPARE THE BILL OF LADINGS WITH THEIR NAME AS SHIPPER WITHOUT ANY INSTRUCTIONS FROM US AND WITHOUT BEING THE OWNER OF THE CARGO.

12) BEING THE SHIPPER AND HOLDER OF THE BILL OF LADINGS ILLEGALLY, THEY ARE IN CONTROL OF THE CONTAINERS AND THE CARGO.

13) SINCE THEN THOMPSON HAS STARTED THEIR BLACKMAILING AND EXTORTION OF MONEY FROM US BY SENDING US THREE INVOICES AMOUNTING TO TOTAL STG4,227.74 (DETAILS AS BELOW) FOR PAYMENT, OR ELSE THEY WILL NOT RELEASE AND SURRENDER OUR BILL OF LADINGS

14) -INVOICE NO. 500000060 DATED 27/07/2011 AMOUNT STG 1,780/- ACCOUNT OF ANOTHER PARTY. THOMPSON IS CLAIMING THIS AMOUNT FROM US WHICH HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH US.

-INVOICE NO. 500000236 DATED 03/01/2013 AMOUNT STG 1,281.60 ACCOUNT OF ANOTHER PARTY THIS AMOUNT  CHARGED BY THOMPSON UK AS 4% MONTHLY

-INVOICE NO. 500000240 DATED 07/01/2013 AMOUNT STG 1,166.14 . THIS IS INVOICE IS FREIGHT OVERCHARGED BY THOMPSON FOR ONE CONTAINER 

15) WE HAVE THEREFORE CONTACTED MAERSK SHIPPING LINE EXPLAINING TO THEM THAT THOMPSON BEING ILLEGAL HOLDER OF ORIGIN OF BILL OF LADING DOES NOT MEAN AND DOES NOT HAVE ANY LEGAL RIGHT OVER THE CARGO AND THAT DELIVERY HAS TO BE GIVEN TO US AS PER OUR SUPPLIERS INSTRUCTION.

16) TO OUR GREAT SURPRISE MAERSK INFORM US THAT THE CONTAINERS CAN ONLY BE DELIVERED TO THE OWNER OF THE ORIGINAL BILL OF LADINGS AND AS PER INSTRUCTIONS BY SHIPPER AS MENTIONNED ON B/L WHICH IS IN THIS CASE THOMPSON UK. .

17) IN ALL INTERNATIONAL AS WELL AS COUNTRY LAWS, MAERSK LINE AS ''THE CARRIER'' HAS TAKEN PHYSICAL POSSESSION OF THE GOODS TO TRANSPORT FROM ONE DESTINATION AND THE BILL OF LADING CAN ONLY BE ISSUED TO THE FIRST OWNER OF THE CARGO, AND UNLESS AND UNTIL THE FIRST OWNER OF GOODS HAS NOT REALIZED HIS VALUE OF THE PROPERTY (CARGO) NO ONE ELSE HAS ANY RIGHT OR SHARE IN THE CARGO.

WHAT THOMPSON AND MAERSK HAS BEEN DOING IS TOTALLY ILLEGAL AND CONSIDERED AS FRAUDULOUS ACTIVITIES.

18) AFTER ALL UNSUCCESSFUL NEGOTIATIONS, WE HAVE DECIDED TO EFFECT THE PAYMENT OF STG 4,227.74 AS REQUESTED BY THOMPSON, WHICH WE DID AS PER OUR BANK TRANSFER IN THEIR FAVOUR ON 22/01/13 UNDER CONDITIONS AS PER THEIR ACCEPTANCE TO RELEASE AND SURRENDER THE BILL OF LADINGS.

19) UNFORTUNATELY THOMPSON LOGISTICS LTD UK HAS NOT RESPECTED THE AGREEMENT AND CAME UP WITH ANOTHER INVOICE OF STG3,400 BEING FREIGHT CHARGES FOR TWO CONTAINERS. CONDITIONS OF THOMPSON WAS THAT AFTER RECEIPT OF THIS PAYMENT BOTH BILL OF LADINGS WILL BE RELEASED.

20) THE NORMAL FREIGHT RATE FOR 1 CONTANER FROM  SHIPPING LINE IS USD 1,200/- PER CONTAINER (TOTAL USD 2,400 FOR OUR TWO CONTAINERS).ONCE AGAIN THOMPSON IS TRYING TO EXTORT MORE MONEY FROM BY OVERCHARGING USSTG3,400 INSTEAD OF USD 2,400 FOR OUR TWO CONTAINERS. APPROX 138% HIGHER THAT THE NORMAL FREIGHT RATE.

21) ALL CONTAINERS STILL LYING AT THE CUSTROMS WITH HIGH DEMURRAGE AND STORAGE CHARGES INCREASING DAY BY DAY.

22) DUE TO THE CHARGES INCREASING DAY BY DAY, WE HAD NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE BUT TO ACCEPT TO PAY THE STG 3,400 TO WHICH THOMPSON UK HAS ADDED 4% INTEREST FOR ONE MONTH

TOTAL NOW STG 3,536.

23) INVOICE NO.500000241 DATED 07/01/13 AMOUNT STG 3,536 WAS SENT TO US FOR PAYMENT.

24) I HAVE INFORMED THOMPSON THAT MY PARTNER WILL BE IN UK AND HAS PREPARED A BANK CHEQUE FROM BARCLAYS BANK UK AMOUNT TO STG3,400/ TO EFEECT THE PAYMENT TO THEM.

25) MY PARTNER TRIED TO PHONE THEM BUT THEY PUT HIM ON HOLD FOR MORE THAN 45 MINUTES .

HE DECIDED TO GO DIRECTLY TO THEIR OFFICE TO GIVE THEM THE BANK CHEQUE (COPY WITH ME). THEY DID NOT ATTEND TO HIM, NEITHER THEY WILLING TO TALK TO HIM AT THE RECEPTION, NOR WILLING TO MEET HIM AND ALSO NOT ACCEPTING THE CHEQUE PRETENDING THAT THEY CANNOT ACCEPT PAYMENT AT THEIR OFFICE AND THAT PAYMENT TO BE EFFECTED IN THEIR ACCOUNT.

26) MY PARTNER HAS THEREFORE DEPOSITED THE CHEQUE TO THOMPSON ACCOUNT WHICH THEY ACKNOWLEDGE RECEIPT. DESPITE EFFECTING  ALL PAYMENTS AS REQUESTED BY THOMPSON UK, WE ARE STILL TILL TODAY WAITING FOR THE SURRENDER AND RELEASE OF ORIGINALS BILL OF LADINGS FROM THOMPSON UK. THIS PAYMENT WAS EFFECTED UNDER STRICT CONDITION THAT IF THOMPSON DOES NOT RELEASE AND SURRENDER THE BILL OF LADINGS , ALL AMOUNT TRANSFERRED TO THEM HAS TO BE REFUNDED TO US.

27) AFTER ALL PAYMENTS EFFECTED TO THOMPSON ,NOW THEY WANT US TO SIGN A LETTER OF INDEMNITY (LOI) FOR RELEASE OF ORIGINALS BILL OF LADINGS WHICH WE REFUSED.

28) WE HAVE ALL THEIR EMAILS ACCEPTANCE AND CONFIRMATION OF THEIR SURRENDER AND RELEASE OF BILL OF LADINGS AFTER RECEIPT OF PAYMENTS TO THEM, BUT TILL NOW MAERSK CANNOT ISSUE THE ORIGINAL BILL OF LADINGS TO OUR SHIPPER AS SAME IS BEING STILL HELD AND BLOCKED BY THOMPSON UK. NOT TO FORGET THAT THE DEMMURAGE AND STORAGE CHARGES IN MAURITIUS IS BEING ADDED DAY BY DAY.

29) AFTER MORE THAN TWO MONTHS LYING AT THE CUSTOMS IN THE RAIN AND HEAT, THE RISKS OF SPOILED CARGO IS NOW HIGH.

30) WE HAVE REALLY SUFFERED A LOT WITH THIS ISSUE WITH LOT OF PRESSURE, STRESS AND HARRASSMENT FROM THOMPSON. WE WERE HOPING THAT THOMPSON WILL RESPECT THEIR COMMITMENT BUT UNFORTUNATELY THEY TURNED OUT TO BE REAL CROOKS.
