The places we recommend Are places that we know have had transactions with other members or are well known internet companies.
Almost all companies on our list were checked out when they were added. But as times go on we have to keep up on these suppliers.
We are currently working on updating our reviews of these suppliers including also doing some background checks on these suppliers. And checking known scam alert sites for any possible bad reviews on them. If there are any questionable reasons that cant be explained away as general business problems. We flagg those sites for removal from our lists.
Although we DO NOT and CAN NOT Guarantee that all our suppliers are practicing fair trade and producing only highly authentic products. We are doing the best we can to screen them.
If any member has a bad experience with a supplier we have the NAME THEM SHAME THEM section of the forums so they can keep us updated.
