Non-delivery fraud

One type of business fraud identified by the FBI, is non-delivery of merchandise. This often happens to consumers who buy online and simply never receive what they paid for.

Say for example, you find a good deal from a remote supplier, send your payment electronically, and then hear nothing back. The supposed delivery day passes, still nothing. When you try to contact the company, no one responds. Finally, you noticed that they have entirely shut down their website.

Prevalent scamming tactics like this can cost you in several ways. First, you lose the money that you invested in the actual products or materials. Secondly, if not having those specific parts means that you now cannot produce your own products, you are losing potential sales.

Ironically, this scam could also mean that you as a businessperson are not able to produce and deliver your own orders on time. From this, consumers may be angry at the delays or think that they themselves have been scammed. This involvement in these scamming tactics can tarnish your reputation and unfortunately, an incident like this could be the greatest financial hit your company may encounter in its active lifespan.

If this does happen to you, it is crucial that you are aware of your legal options. The overseas business world is complicated, so to find out what steps to take when you’re dealing with a foreign company that won’t follow through with deliveries, please contact us at your earliest convenience.

What Our Clients Say

Starting a new business can be a bit scary. Aside from worries of failure, there’s also the hassle of making sure all legal paperwork are properly filed. I reached out to Mr. Wang (Tommy) because of his excellent reviews and reputation and I am so glad I did. He was thorough and meticulous in answering all of my concerns and took time to find out special laws and policies regarding the kind of business I am starting. I could focus on the daily practical side of starting my new office without worry because I felt Tommy was reliable and took my case seriously. My business is opened and it’s all been a smooth start because of Tommy’s help. I have plans to start another business venture in the next few years and I already know I’ll be coming back to Wang IP Law.

I came to Tommy for help reviewing a licensing agreement I had secured with a well-known manufacturer. Tommy made sure I understood all the details in the contract and he negotiated with the company to improve my side of the deal. I mentioned to Tommy at my first consultation that we were looking to expand throughout the US and were investing a lot of money to make a big entrance into the market. I did not think I would have my store open so soon but Tommy also has connections with the local area and realtors to help me secure the location for my first store in the Los Angeles area. Tommy works a lot with the local businesses and he understands how to transition from the Asian market to US market. Within 8 months my store was open for business and fully operating. I must recommend Tommy to any business owners looking for help with contracts and improving their side of the deal. Tommy has the knowledge and experience to make sure there is a smooth process to open for business here, and make sure that your company is set up for success.


I think Tommy and his team by far considered the best people to work with in my 16 business years. Beside quick responses to all my inquiries, they also done things right and providing very professional solutions. I’m highly recommending Tommy and his firm to all business owners.

I have been working on my Utility Patent for almost 4 years. I have hired and fired two very reputable IP firms because with all their expertise and reputation for being some of the top firms in IP Law, I felt a lack of connection and care in my product, time and financial investment. Then I found Tommy and his team. Tommy does not waste time. He and his team are professional and extremely thorough. After 4 years, I finally found a legal team that I felt spent the time to really understand the components of my utility patent. Tommy also very mindful of cost and how and where my money would be better spent. I really feel I am in great hands with Tommy and his team. They have been patient with my revisions. And most importantly, they made me feel that they fully understood the importance this patent is to me. It has been a great and comforting pleasure working with Tommy.
