    Wow - you are the 2nd person who got FOREX and foreign trade mixed up recently. Forex traders buy and sell different currencies and try to make money based on changes in value between the currencies. What you are trying to do is foreign trade.

    Still, there are some things you should be aware of that can apply to any number of types of scams.

    That website was registered in January. Unless there's a very good reason for it, don't be the first to test the honesty of a new company.

    Due to the high overlap in names, there are a lot of Chinese names that are as difficult to track as a John Smith or Tim Jones would be in English speaking countries. Sending a WU transfer there won't be easy to track. You should contact WU about this situation. If you are VERY lucky, Song Yang wasn't using a fake or stolen ID card.

    Good luck.

    Yup. I know of six different cities off the top of my head with a Zhongshan road (it means middle mountain..like between)
    I can also guarantee that the name Sarah will be 0 help in finding that person.
    Oh, and the site's closed down now, but that might be because of where I am.
