Still no word on the contest results. I see the site is some what back. The Web site cannot be found
The Web site you are looking for is unavailable due to its identification configuration settings.

Maybe now they are updating it with the new logo. Who knows???

The ASPAC coordinators used direct bank transfers to accept payment for attending their show, so it doesn't surprise me that they want to send the logo winner payment via a bank transfer. BTW, was the prize money in Taiwan dollars or US dollars? 1 $US = $30 dollars Taiwan.

Asking for a bank account # for international transfer is not uncommon. I would, however, ask your bank if they have a temp account, as Vic mentioned, or if there is another way to facilitate the e-transfer without disclosing your personal #.--

If you must send your number to them, send half of the number in one email, the second set of digits in another, seperate email later. This could help in not putting all that info in a single email that could be intercepted, stored improperly, or hacked.

My wife works at my bank.. We're going to figure it out.. I'm still waiting to hear back from them though. I'd kinda like to know what LOGO actually won the damn thing. :confused:

Giving up your checking account number in this day and age is still not Kosher. There are many avenues open to move around money internationally without divulging your personal information to an unknown. You'd think that they would use xoom, money gram, pay pal etc. to name a few ....

Now if you were talking about ordering a container full of akadama from Japan that might be a different issue.

I had a wonderful time at the 10th ASPAC. Your expo was overwhelming in the quality and artistry of your exhibits. Having seen only pictures of your Bonsai and Suiseki in the past, did not prepare me for the beauty and grandeur of the live exhibits. Your generosity and warm welcome was unequaled and I want to thank you very much for giving me this opportunity to experience your world of bonsai and the kindness of the people of Taiwan.

Here's another update to this fiasco. I sent a couple more emails asking WTF is up questions. So I didn't win 5 spots. They apologized by saying their English was bad. I got $300 for a runner up. Also they told me today that Kevin Shen (Mr. Kevin) passed away. So they need to find somebody else to handle things. Said they need to ask chief operation about my bonus. SO weird..
