Report on my Hong Kong Trader Problem

For those who were following my problems with a Hong Kong Trader, I can now report the following.

After I finally gave up hope of receiving my goods (as I was receiving no replies to my many emails), I decided as a last ditch attempt, to report the matter to the Hong Kong Police, whose email address I found quite easily. They responded with a request for more details, which I sent them.

Three weeks later, out of the blue, came around 8 emails from the Trader, apologising, and saying that he was sending me an upgraded version of the goods I had originally ordered. Three days later I received them.

The Hong Kong Police checked back with me to confirm that I had indeed received the goods now.

I have nothing but praise for the Hong Kong Police!
