Slander of a company is a serious offense in Thai law. I hope Tiger and the real SFM Gmbh (who have stated they did not sent the above letter) bring the full force of Thai law on the people that produced and promoted that letter.
We only know one side of the story, that is true... Tiger Motor has our email address and if they want to add any information we also include it. We as Motorcycle Thailand are always trying to be completely neutral in any conflict.
Is the letter from Sachs Bikes fake? We honestly don't know, what we know is that Tiger Motor Co. Ltd is not longer selling Sachs Bikes, and we know that Tiger Motor Co. Ltd is no longer a Sachs Bikes distributor. We also know that Tiger Motor Co. Ltd has stopped using the Sachs Bikes name...
We know for a fact that the problems between Tiger Motor Co. Ltd and Sachs Bikes started before March 2011, was it 4 months earlier (December 2010) we don't know for sure...
Basically the second letter, if it comes from SFM GMBH or not, doesn't say much more than the first letter from Tiger Motor Co. Ltd (which we assume is not fake or altered). The email which containing the letter from SFM GMBH was send to us from an IP address in Hong Kong. The owners of SFM GMBH are not located in Germany, also you don't need to be Sherlock Holmes to see that the signature under the letter is Chinese...
Also we do not claim that the document is authentic, we publish it as we received it...
If Tiger Motor Co. Ltd or SFM GMBH see it necessary to take legal action against us, so be it... If one of the parties involved have any complains about our publications I would advice that they contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the correct information or send a complain to email@example.com
