Good Morning

I am sorry to say this but there is very little that the Australian Authorities can do because it is overseas.

You can report the matter to scamwatch and also the AFP

But they will not be able to get the money back for you.

If you want to sue and you know their where abouts in China you will have to sue in China

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
