DUE DILIGENCE ON YOUR PROPOSED BUSINESS PARTNER

If convenient, you may wish to meet your potential business partner in person and visit his company's facilities or do a factory tour as we are aware, that even though transactions can start and finish on the portal, one-on-one assessment can be most reliable, it is a fact that for face-to-face contact could provide a more convincing result. aniwura Int'l sourcing department is available to arrange a face-to-face meeting with a potential trade partner, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further on how to book the appointment or use our inspection service.
PROTECT YOURSELF WHEN ORDERING OR PROVIDING SAMPLES
For Sellers: It is not recommended that a seller should accept to receive payment from a buyer be it local or oversea after the goods has been delivered. Once a buyer receives a samples or products without payment, there is no guarantee of getting them back if the buyer do not like the product. It is also not recommended that a supplier sells or send sample to an unknown buyer on credit without having a firm agreement on payment terms. Instead, it is highly recommended that your buyer opens a letter of credit since it is the most preferred payment method in international trade and use the secured method of payment provided by aniwura ANI SECURED PAYMENT (ESCROW SERVICE) However, there can still be some possibility of fraud due to incorrect or forged shipping documents, it is therefore important to do proper check before you embark on the transaction to conclusion
WHAT TO DO
Reduce the exposure to fraud by contacting the L/C issuing bank. Be sure to check the L/C number, opening date, opening place, name and address of the issuing bank, shipping date, valid date, loading and unloading port, applicant, period of presentation, amount, as well as details of trans-shipment, partial shipment, etc. Nevertheless. We strongly advice the use of aniwura secured Escrow Service that protect both buyers and sellers.
For Buyers: We strongly advice buyers not to accept an overseas supplier's request for pre-payment for samples or Orders without the involvement of Aniwura Int'l sourcing department. It is of note that sometimes, request for pre-payment involves attempted fraud. However, there are times a supplier may ask for a deposit (usually 20-40%) before he accepts the order. While this is very common between long-standing trading partners, if it is a first time transaction with the supplier, make sure you do sufficient background checks on the supplier before you agree to send the deposit, or better still, ask for a different form of payment, such as a letter of credit or contact aniwura.com for secured payment. If the seller put too much pressure insisting on cash payment, kindly take caution, do not rush to make payment and never make cash payment. Be extra cautious when you are sending through wiring services such as Western Union, moneygram.
USE PRE-SHIPMENT INSPECTION SERVICES PROVIDED BY ANIWURA
We recommend that buyers protect themselves against poor product quality by ordering a pre-shipment inspection of the products. You can contact aniwura Int'l sourcing department to arrange inspection service for you and make it a condition to payment.
BEWARE OF FAKE E-MAIL ADDRESS, SHIPPING OR CONTACT ADDRESSES
Pay very close attention to shipping or contact addresses located in Countries with high reported incidences of online fraud. i.e. Bank fraud, Email Fraud, kindly note that, it is very possible and easy for anyone with some technical knowledge to send an email with a fake mail address pretending to be who they are not. When you receive such email even from a known person, or from someone who is familiar but the message of the email looks suspicious, you should verify whether the email came from the person whom the sender claims to be before you start the business discussions. This is very important so as not to fall into fraudulent hands
