    this mail is for Juliet-reply Nb028.If you know them, please tell us which caopmny are you from ! Guilin Inlian ltd has very suspicious behaviour. As a trial order, they sent me (i am running my own caopmny of wine exportation) 9 containers of french wine. No way !! However the ask for 30% upfront payment & 70% irrevocable L/C = therefore, I have no view wether I would be fooled or not. Also important to notify : they to not want to show with whom they work with (suppliers). When you do fair business, you can gladly give 1 or 2 names of your suppliers   if ever you are pround and happy of them !!Juliet, who are you working for ???!!! show proof that you are not working for them.
