BE CAREFUL of searching the Internet for your sporting goods, you just might be victimized by this swindler Malaysian national who is based in Hong Kong, like what happened to this certain company.

DO NOT BUY your swimming pool equipments from RICHARD TEH a.k.a. TEH KOK LEONG , and COLORADO TIME SYSTEMS.

This is a scam/unfair business practice which happened a year ago, :judges: was constructing this pool and needed to purchase swimming pool equipments, while browsing the internet, it came across a US company named Colorado Time Systems (Swimming Equipments) and sent a enquiry and got a reply from this RICHARD TEH who is the Vice President for Asia Pacific of this US company. A personal meeting took place in HK in Richard Teh's office (he said it was "THEIR OFFICE"). both parties met and came into an agreement to purchase the swimming pool equipments, no contract was written since Teh was hesitant and even said that there is no need since it will take time to prepare but a sales invoice issued instead made only by Teh no other "company representatives" signed said invoice

The agreement was the goods were to be shipped from the US to the company by CIF basis (cost, freight, insurance, services of a technician to properly install the equipment). Teh informed that Colorado Time System would not start production unless full payment is received by them in advance, so as not to delay the arrival of the much needed equipments, :judges: decided to wire the full payment to Teh's company.

Several months had passed but no shipment came in, despite several communications with Teh but were unanswered by Teh. So :judges: decided to go to HongKong and personally meet Teh but when went to its HK office, found out that it was a secretarial services virtual office and not a real office of Colorado Time System, the building was not owned by Colorado Time Systems as what Teh informed. Finally :judges: was able to find Teh after calling its mobile and leaving word with the virtual office/secretarial services office because :judges: didn't want to leave said virtual office unless Teh shows up which eventually Teh did show up and talks resumed.

Upon the arrival of the goods several months after receiving 100% full payment, the forwarder gave its bill to :judges: and would not release the goods unless freight is paid. So had no choice but to pay the freight so goods were delivered, upon checking of the goods, found out that the goods was incomplete and turned out was only partial of the complete set.

Very frustrated, contacted Teh again, after several days of no reply, Teh finally sent an email saying some parts were missing because it was still under production. Once it is finished it will be delivered, waited for another 2 months before shipment arrived. Again, was surprised to learn that freight was not paid again by US company so it had no choice but to pay again the freight for the goods to be released.


:judges: contacted the US Company but the president/owner claimed he was fully unaware of what their Vice President in Asia Pacific (RICHARD TEH) was doing and how he got the deal!! The owner of this US Company, however, denied the allegation that their equipments were over-priced! and refused to give the refund and he will not honor any signed agreement of :judges: and Teh.

So if you are thinking of working for and/or with TEH and this US Company be smart and don't. There are other MORE credible and reliable suppliers out there :madgo:
