  3. ВНИМАНИЕ! МОШЕННИК! Компания ООО ИНТЭК ИНН 7721782188 и ПОДЛЫЙ ОБМАНЩИК руководитель Марченко Павел Владимирович – кидалы! НИКОГДА не обращайтесь в эту компанию! — Они обязательно вас подставят, как и нас! Между организацией-«поставщиком» нефтепродуктов ООО ИНТЭК ИНН 7721782188 , где директором является вышеупомянутый товарищ, и нашей фирмой был заключен договор на поставку ГСМ. Договор предусматривал предоплату. Мы пошли навстречу этим обманщикам, поставили им мазут, и в итоге попали на 25 миллионов рублей. Добровольно ничего не отдают. Это недобросовестная компания, надеюсь, скоро все их махинации будут раскрыты и они понесут самое серьезное наказание!!
