My name is ******** from Nigeria and residing in Port Harcourt Rivers state Nigeria, and the wife to Mr. Mack. i had a transaction with Mr. Paul Ubaka known as APOLLLO RESOURCE LLC 40 LUCAS LANE, ELLENWOOD GA 30294 USA, based on trust to bid for an equipment (CAT EXCAVATOR 1993 320B) for me, we had a verbal agreement for him to show me the picture of the machine for me to see via email and give him my approval before biding, because I am working with an estimated bank loan offered to me by my bankers here in Nigeria Africa which I told him from the onset. Which he did on the 20/06/2014. He showed me a picture of CAT EXCAVATOR 1993 320B TYPE : HYRAULIC, SERIAL No: 7G J0 3003, CONDITION: USED, HOURS: 8456 HRS comes with BKT, 9ft 10in stick, AC front attachment bucket type BKT, front attachment with 49in,
I saw it and approved for him to bid for me and he did and said $52,000.00 (Fifty two thousand USD) will get it to Lagos port Nigeria. Based on this CAT excavator 1993 320B I sent the money to him through his bank/account information which is NAVY FEDERAL CREDIT UNION 113 GEROGIA 138 STOCKBRIDGE GA 30281 USA.
Account No: 7023388932, Routing No: 2560-74 on the 08/07/2014 I transferred $10,000.00 USD (Ten Thousand Dollars) on the 09/07/2014 I did the last transfer of $42,000.00 USD ( Forty Two Thousand Dollars) total of $52,000.00 USD ( Fifty Two Thousand Dollars). After the transfer of the money to him, he told me that he has bought the CAT EXCAVATOR 320B 1993 MODEL and he will take it to the port for shipment and that it will arrive at Lagos port Nigeria by end of August.
Two weeks after I called him and he was not picking my calls. The 3rd week I called him and he responded and said he was out of the state, that he sent me a mail that I should go and check my mail, when I asked him the content he refused to disclose it to me and insisted I should check my email, so I did, all for me to see in my email that Mr. Paul Ubaka has bought another CAT EXCAVATOR 1998 320B, HYDRAULIC, S/N: 5BR00937, come with BKT W/HYD thumb, 9ft 6in stick in replacement of the 1993 CAT EXCAVATOR he showed me the picture I paid for. When I called him and asked him why? He said the 1993 CAT EXCAVATOR 320B does not have its own power to load on the ship. He also said that 1998 CAT EXCAVATOR 320B has already been delivered to the port and will sail in few days from now, and I was very upset and I told him that he does not have the right to buy the 1998 320B CAT EXCAVATOR in replacement of the 1993 CAT EXACAVATOR he showed me on the pictures that made me to transfer the money to him. I refused to take the 1998 CAT EXCAVATOR 320B because it was looking very rough and with a higher worked hours, that based on this he should send back my money, but after having log ahead with him, he still insisted that the 1998 CAT EXCAVATOR 320B has been loaded to the ship that he cannot reach it. So in other for me not to have problems with my bankers and also for me to meet up the time I agreed to pay back the loan to my bankers, I accepted the 1998 CAT EXCAVATOR 320B.
Mr. Paul Ubaka now promised that the 1998 CAT EXCAVATOR 320B will arrive Lagos Sea port Nigeria mid of September 2014 and he also said he will call the shipping line between Monday 08/09/2014 and Tuesday 09/09/2014, to demand for bill of lading and he promised to send it to me. i waited for his call and he did not call, so I called him severally but he was not taking my calls. I now sent him an email (and he did not reply so I called him again on Sunday 14/09/2014 and he picked and said he didn’t see my email, voice mail and missed calls,that he travelled to Canada. I asked him for the bill of lading and he started demanding for more money for shipment of the 1998 CAT EXCAVATOR 320B. He said I have to sent the money to him before he will release the bill of lading.
On the 15/09/2014 and 16/09/2014 he sends me;
1) RB RITCHIE BROS AUCTIONEERS invoice dated 2014/08/05, Auction number: 2014289 and Auction location: Denver, Co, USA claiming he bought the 1998 320B EXCAVATOR for $48,005.55 USD.
2) KEEN TRANSPORT invoice
3) AMERICAN FORWARDING + LOGISTICS LLC invoice of $9,823.74 USD.
In that of RB RITCHIE BROS invoice I discovered via RB RITCHIE BROS website that the 1998 320B CAT EXCAVATOR was sold at to him for the sum of $41,000.00 as against the $48,005.55 USD he sent to me.
In that of the AMERICAN FORWARDING + LOGISTICS LLC invoice, I discovered that he added the ocean freight of A40585 200 MODEL FORD E450 which I did not buy into invoice he sent to me. The phone number are not correct and even there address is not well detailed.
The greatest challenge that I am having now is from this invoice from AMERICA FORWARDING AND LOGISTIC LLC Mr. Paul sent to me which notified that the 1998 CAT 320B EXCAVATOR estimated time of shipping (ETS) was on 09/05/14 and the Estimated time of Arrival (ETA) is on the 09/26/14 and up till now I have not seen my bill of lading and Mr. Paul is still with my $11,000.00USD which he has not accounted for.
Please I need you people to help me get Paul to give me the bill of lading because the bank is really on my neck because the agreed time is fast approaching and the machine has not arrived nor started working to pay up the loan to the bank and it is really making me think a lot on this and I’m avoiding development of high blood pressure due to this issue. Every other necessary documents and emails are with me in case you people need it for verification.
Completion of business and to send the bill of lading to me
Use with caution
