Angry Is This Guy A Fraud??

Hi to All,

I have a bit of a problem having ordered and paid for some spares I bought from the US from a company that I found over the net called MID TNMARINE (http://www.midtinmarine.com)!
Is a long story but you will probably get the juist of it in the last email that I sent to them yesterday am UK time and since today am UK time again have not received any reply

Dear Michael,

This is now the 3rd email and just left you another message over the phone.
I am VERY concerned that you have now debited our Credit Card, you have
advised me that you have sent the spares with BAX Global but you are not
giving me the tracking number to trace them.
I have contacted Bax Global and they have no record of your company.
As I said I am very concerned taht you have no intention of sending any spares to us
and if I do not hear from you within today with details of the tracking number (if the spares that you claim you sent with Bax Global have actually been sent), I am afraid that you leave me no option but to notify VISA about your company and cancel all transactions with you.

Regards
Manos

I would like to ask as I have given the benefit of the doubt to this guy whethet any one of you has dealt with this company and possibly him not repying to my emails is because of a problem and that his company is 100% legit.

However if they are not whethere any one knows how easy is to ask VISA to credit my account back again since this guy has already debited under his compnay name MID TNMARINE and we have not received any godds yet (it has taken over 4 weeks now from ordering and more than 10 days since this person communicated with my saying that he sent the goods by BAX GLOBAL).

Any info much appreciated.

Many Thanks

Yes Corrado I'm about to do that. But since I spoke to this guy (have called the US over 10 time so far) just once I just give him the benefit of the doubt until 'our' am Monday.

He has charged my VISA for about $ 1,700 (this was the order value) as MIDTNMARINE so I think VISA can trace him and I HOPE that I will get my money back

Thanks any way

He did say that he had the jack plate in stock and that he was waiting for the piston rods, crank shaft, low water pick up and flow scan. However, he said to me last week (14 days ago) on another email that WAS posting everything with BAX GLOBAL as he felt the order was very late and he understood my concerns about not having the things in the UK a month after I placed the order. So I assumed that he had received all the parts by then.
However, when I asked him for the tracking number (a week later) he didn't reply. I repeated the email just in case and called him a couple of times and left a message and again no reply.
And as you may appreciate I am quite concerned. I'm sure that when you have a customer you would try to communicate with him in case something was wrong but he hasn't so far. I also contacted today the Chamber of Commerce in Tennessee to see if they know this company or if this company is registered with them and I also contacted a few local radio stations to put it over the air (which they will do). So will give it until tomorrow and I if there is no response will cancel the card. I was told that VISA will do it.
