If these companies are not reliable , Then salehoo should'nt permit them to deal with people who pay to become a member here . I would think that it should be salehoo responsibility to check these companies out to make sure their reliable . maybe salehoo should check to see wehther their a member of the BBB .
Just because you are not a member of the BBB doesn't mean that you aren't a legit business. The big problem is that even companies who produce fakes are legit companies, and do service certain buyers who sell through certain avenues throughout the world.
The problem arrives when someone unwillingly happens to purchase what they think is a genuine item, only to find out it's not. Ok, they would say that they got screwed on the deal, but another person looking for such a supplier may well be happy with their products and services.
Then you have situations where because one or two customers aren't happy they brand the company as one not to be dealt with. Bad publicity should always be considered when making any decision to do business with any entity, however it should be used in perspective so you are able to make a more balanced, and better informed decision.
My own personal opinion is that the directories here should be clearer, and businesses placed in more appropriate directories so as to save any confusion, but even fake makers have their place on a list like this. Lets face it, if fake makers weren't included on these types of lists then everyone would be screaming out that there was no Chinese suppliers!
Use the forum as a tool to assist when not sure because it is one of the better aspects of the whole site and will provide value for your money if you are willing to ask questions, but the list is simply a list like most others, and all of these types of lists are pretty much the same.
