Recently we paid for an ATV from this chinese company http://highper.en.alibaba.com they indicated that they were experienced in importing to the USA. We advised their agent Alice that proper documentation was required prior to the cargo leaving their port. Alice failed to file the required paperwork and Customs refused to let the shipment go.
The faiure to file the correct documentation had Customs officials asking for a $ 10,000.00 one year bond . The bond might be returned or it might be subject to levy to pay the fine.
The shipment never made it into our hands and now http://highper.en.alibaba.com/ refuses to refund ourr payment or ship a replacment item
Cheated and screwed, big time by the failure to correctly file import documentation . I highly reccommend you avoid doing business with the IMO crooks at http://highper.en.alibaba.com/
