    Hello,

    I registered only to say a huge THANK YOU, because this post saved me from getting scammed... I was asked to pay with bank transfer to give me the best possible price, and It became suspicious, even when the seller sent some EMS receipts when I did never asked for it. It would have been most likely impossible to recover the money.

    In regards to improve the visibility of this topic for some other potential victims like me, some of the data I was given (not sharing account no. just in case)

    Account name: Luo Yong
    Swift code: PSBCCNBJ
    Bank name: Postal saving Bank Of China
    Bank address: Number 10,Shi Yan Road, ban An district,shenzhen city,China

    Best regards.

        Freewing Model (often referred to as Freewing) = Genuine Factory

        Freewing-Model = Swearing Scammer



        The dash between "Freewing" and "Model" makes all the difference. Freewing-Model.com is a scam, they are NOT the genuine Freewing factory. The genuine Freewing factory would never answer an email by swearing at someone. I work out of the real Freewing factory a couple times a week so I know them personally.

        When in doubt, contact Freewing's primary global distributor, us: www.motionrc.com and www.motionrc.eu

          Gotta hand it to the guy. Just a dash is all it takes to hoodwink many. Thankfully many good and honest folks can help point out the scammer that he really is. And a potty mouth to boot!

                About 3 months ago, I had a slow day at work and decided to email the scam site just out of curiosity. After getting a reply and reading it, I got mad knowing someone was trying to scam me. It was a weird feeling since I initiated the communication but knowing full well that the guy on the other end was lying and 100% scamming just got my blood boiling. So, I emailed him back and forth with tons of questions for a few days just to waste his time, then did it from my other email address a week later. Sometimes, it's the small victories that help!

                Edit - one ironic thing that came from the conversation is he was trying to sell me a L39 for more than I could buy one from MRC and claiming it was a V2. Pretty funny stuff. Part of the convo below.


                Freewing L39 V2
                discount price is 310(USD)
                shipment cost 86(USD).
                Delivery time is 3 to 5 days.
                total amount is 396(USD)
                do you like the price and shipment cost?

                        Hi All

                        I am glad i a mate sent me this regarding freewing-model web page being a scam i nearly purchased but it would of been through pay pal..

                        Mr Leo Yang the sales person was quick to respond and offer to me the price in us dollars for a freewing camo L39.

                        His price for a pnp was $444.00 US dollars + $112.00 postage.I mentioned i can get for a better price from China including postage.

                        He then replied WHAT PRICE DO YOU WANT IT AT?

                        I replied back to Leo and said $300.00 US including postage and i said i want wholesale price,He then sent me the price for 10 or more.

                        He replied with?


                        ok.

                        you can see the wholesale price.

                        the Minimum order quantity is 10 units with the same name RC airplane.

                        for example:

                        you need to order 10 units Freewing A10 80mm ARF plus servos. price is 430(USD) each one

                        you need to order 10 units Freewing L39 Albatros PNP . price is 280(USD) each.one.




                        the price is not including shipment cost.




                        do you understand?

                        thanks

                        I then told him i want one for sample before i commit to 10 or more models so i can see the quality.

                        He then replied back saying

                        I then contacted my mate who advised me that the web page is a scam

                        After replying back to Leo saying he is a scam he started using profanity and was pissed off Lols.
