    Okay so I've been in this business for about a year and I know pretty much all the rules but yet I screwed up.


    So about 2 weeks ago I ordered some electronic iphone cases (not disclosing company name) off of a Chinese website. I know that's stupid in itself but these actually looked really genuine and the rep was very persuasive.


    Anyways yeah they turned out to be foo foo and DHL seized my package about 4-5 days ago.




    Here is where stuff gets really dicey, U.S. customs sent the electronics company a report stating that I tried to import 1,600 dollars worth of electronic cases (which were 70 cases that I ordered).


    Electronics company then sends me a letter which I received today.




    The letter was addressed to my real name and my real address. The letter basically says to stop selling foo foo and buying foo foo electronic cases and to give them some information regarding where I bought them from.


    My question to you is, should i respond to them? Or just leave it alone? I'm thinking just respond to them and claim innocent and tell them this is the first package I have ordered. I already have a letter written up but I do not want to get too personal with the details.


    My biggest fear is that they are affiliated with a lawsuit company like Johnson and Pham (which they are) and then they come after me. I may be overreacting but I'm not sure.


    I know you guys aren't attorneys but a lot of you are really smart and I'd like to hear what you guys have to say thanks. =x I just want to put this behind me and move forward more cautiously.

    i dealt with a company long ago that was the largest iphone product manufacturer in the world. they were sued by apple....they just switched names and ownership...which is common in this game...sold the business to their uncle for $1 and changed names....these guys were HUGE...i mean huge...they supplied ever kiosk in the USA.....you are not the manufacturer....you probably have little money....they know this....they are after the manufacturers in these situations...not you...i won't be scared....think about it...this was an internet transaction....who's to say that they packed you the wrong merchandise....do you think that they will seize their overseas servers.....no.....if you were making these things with molds etc...then i would be worried...you are small peanuts....lawyers know it....these guys that are manufacturers are making tons of dough...and are rolling in it....and if a lawyer is going to chase..that is who they are going to chase.....

    stop selling any thing lol and seek legal counsel/help immediately NOW you aren't getting sued yet but their asking for a bunch of info dw. Someone has to legally serve you for you to get in truoble from what I read online. now there was a forum where this one guy offers his services on how to get out of situations like these and etc. Honestly they are using scare tactics. To Sue someone else in a completely entirely different state is gnna take alot of money.......... so jst seek legal help and they can help resolve this situation very quickly. have you tried selling beats on ebay???? those are easier

    Yeah, like the above poster.. your best bet is to seek legal help. Anyone who suggests otherwise shouldn't be replying.
