City : PETALING JAYA
State : SELANGOR
Country : MALAYSIA
I first contacted Foo on March-1 from a auction he had on Aquabid. I
had been looking for a wholsale supplier for wildtype bettas.
I asked Foo if he did wholesale orders and he sent a price list on
March-2 quoting a 2-4 week collection time. I have a string of
emails back and forth, he seemed to know what he was talking about
and his Aquabid feedback was OK so I decided to give him a chance.
He confirmed my order on March-20 and I paid him via western union
I had a little trouble contacting the transhipper in Thailand, but
finally on April 29 I got an email from the transhipper that he had
permission to ship the fish. .
I did not hear again from Foo until May-5. I had tried several times
to contact him both via email and SMS and was starting to get nervous

the transhipper the next day. He said he was not on speaking terms
with the transhipper and asked me to get his address for him. I
On May 25 Foo sent me a tracking number. I forwarded that to the
On May 30 Foo sent me an email telling me that there had been a delay
and the package he sent was returned. He said that he would go to
the post office and get them the next day. I have asked him several
times about the condition of the fish but again he is not responding.
The transhipper and I do not believe that there was a package sent at
So, at this point I believe that Foo Chee Mun had no intention of
ever sending fish to me.
I want people to know this and beware of him. However, just because
he has done this does not mean that all of the SE Asian sellers are
dishonest, only Bettawalk. He is the only one in three years who has
