Now, I'm assuming the bit about "receiving my 100% upfront payment by TT befor shipment" was a typo, and she ment to imply that I would be paid by TT.
I wrote back a vague price and quantity, and she responded with pretty rediculouly high quantities, and the following:
"QUANTITIES: 420,000.00 Boxes.
QUANTITIES: 2,000,000.00 Pcs.
Note that this supply will last for One(1) years and partial shipment is allowed.
Kindly send to us your FOB price with necessary trade discount and add our 3%Agent Commission and send it to us.
Note Their Payment Terms: once your invoice is approved for payment, you will be required to visit African Relief Board(ARB) Regional Headqurater in Accra Ghana to sign and seal the Contract Formalities,Notarize, Legalize the Contract for your immediate transfer of the total Contract fund 100% T/T in advance while you are in Ghana and shipment will be made within 90 to 120 days after receipt full contract payment.
Thank you, while waiting for your urgent reply.
I'm gonna have to clarify this 100% TT in advance, seems it still sounds like I'm paying them the money...
Was doing ok unitil the part about me traveling to to Ghana... I think I'm gonna be wheelchair bound and can't travel.
This company does have a lot of postings on various B2B trade boards looking for T-shirts for the African Relief Board, so they do work at it.
