Dear plant lovers,

We had a very unpleasant experience with ordering plants from Chen Yi in 

Our order of about 150 euro was hold in Madrid and I had to pay 200 euro 
to get the plants through customs and I did pay.
After that, the plants did not got through because customs said that 
there were no plants in the packet and I contacted Chen Yi.

Chen Yi mailed me, and asked me to collaborate, because there was 8.2 
milion US$ in the packet of an investor and I would get a percentage. Of 
course I refused to collaborate. I got a phone call from the agent in 
Madrid that I could get the packet through after paying an other 1750 
euro, which I refused of course. The agent knew that there was money in 
the packet as he told me and I think he could buy custom out.

Chen Yi promised me to pay me back for the costs, but she does not reply 
to my messages any more after I stopped collaborating with her.

If you want to order plants from her, be warned that you could 
experience the same problems I've got. If you know other people ordering 
from her, please pass this warning on to them.
