Dear Eric
I like to ask - like Jean-Claude - are you sure this is from Chen Yi
Last year I got an e-mail from Chen Yi where she told me she had problems
with hacking of her e-mail account, and people writing in her name.
She told me if I wanted to order plants from her, never to pay before after
receiving the plants.
I think maybe you have been a victim of one of these scammers.
Best wishes

> Dear plant lovers,
> We had a very unpleasant experience with ordering plants from Chen Yi in
> China
> 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.
