First: Use automatic group mailing software to send you attractive offers and inquiries, with created official websites and email boxes. Formal documents, formal address, websites and bank accounts etc, everything seems to be normal.
Second: Invite you to sign a formal Purchase Contract in person in China.
Third: Insist on notarizing the contract and they will use a non-exist notary office to notarize the document, then all the notary fee will be in their pocket.
Fourth: Asking you for‘kickbacks’or‘bribes’in lot of‘pretexts’in China.

their registered information with local officials first.
