Starting out locally is often good but you may to consider the availability in your area as well. Sorry to hear about your unfortunate experience but we guarantee our suppliers to be safe even those from China, just stay away from branded products. For branded products go for western countries - you have a better chance of getting the real deal.
Also, just want to warn you a bit about electronics - competition is pretty stiff and the market's pretty saturated. A different product for starters might be better especially if this is your first time selling. Just remember start small :)
Hope this helps...
