I have found bits and pieces of information on this in various posts on the forum, but it would be good to have all information about the different ways of checking if a company/supplier is legit in the one thread.
I have found a couple of potential suppliers and now want to check them out as much as I can before proceeding further.
I have signed up with readnotify.com so that can track email comunications. If you don't know about readnotify, it allows you to track when and where from, that the emails you send are opened. eg. potential supplier tells me he is in china but I can tell that he is opening and recieving his emails in nigeria. Has lot of other great features too.
I saw a post but now can't find it about researching and finding information about websites as a way of uncovering the scammers. If someone knows where on the forum that is could you point me in that direction please.
If others that know could post about things to look for or ask for that would be great.
Hello i am new to buying and selling on ebay and i have found 2 websites that i would like to purchase items off. One of them i phoned their phone number and it was a residential house in the USA (and she wasnt happy) so i would leave that one alone. But the other one i would like to order off i have been emailing and they have been emailing back i asked them for a certificate (which he sent me) but i still dont know whether to order from them because the payment is not secure. They are from Indonesia. i dont know if anyone has bought from indonesia but could someone give me a bit of advice please.
If the payment method not secured do not do it. I only pay via Credit Card or Paypal to buy the goods for resell. Stay away from Indonesian websites, majority of them are scammers!
