My wife and I own a small company that designs, manufactures and sells post-surgical bras in US. We recently received the following inquiry from Aaron @eworld.hk. Thanks for posting this info, since we almost got caught up in it. I guess they’re still going strong in trying to defraud people. Is there someone in Hong Kong that can be contacted about this? Keep doing good work – and thanks again.
