According to the statement of complainant, you placed an order with complainant, in the form of Commercial Invoices. The total amount of this trade is more than hundreds of thousands USD at least, complainant delivered contractual obligations on time. According to our investigation, these goods have arrived at the destination, the Port of Discharge for over two months, but until today, your company has not made the payment and picked up the goods at the Port.
After the receipt of the application and evidences from complainant,china lawyer has reviewed all the relevant documents regarding the case.I confirmed the trade between yr two parties and the validity of the concluded contract which is in the form of Commercial Invoice. In accordance with the International Conventions, the Buyer shall undertake the obligation of payment under the contract, while the Seller shall deliver all the goods under the contract accordingly. complainant,has already delivered all the goods to the destination port, but your company has not fully made the payment and delayed to pick up the goods, until today,complainant has tried all the means to persuade your company to perform the obligation of payment, but they have not found your sincerity to make the payment. china lawyer hereby urges you to undertake the payment obligation under contract as soon as possible, we don't want to see this dispute between your two parties result in a lawsuit which would probably end the coming long term cooperation between your two companies. If your company refuses to reply this letter within 7 business days,complainant,may apply to China Chamber of International Commerce(Briefly "CCOIC") to add your company into the blacklists of CCOIC, if so,the reputation and international business image of your company would be greatly ruined, and even worse, your company may be stopped to purchase any goods from China. Meanwhile, we will report this case to your local chamber of commerce and government department.
