I gave to the local police (in Germany) documents proving the fraud actions of Alibaba Gold Supplier: Link hidden: Login to view and Made in China Gold Supplier: Link hidden: Login to view WiseCorp. (Link hidden: Login to view)
(Wise Technology Co., Ltd., Tel: +86-755-25861067, Fax: +86-755-25861067).
I realize now that they originally planned fraud by refusing to accept money in Paypal (on their website this type of payment is not canceled ...), but pay unsafe payment (T/T, WU). They sent me three mobile phones (C6+, F035 and L007), which after studying for the market , were with their consent sent back with a full description of all my claims (one model (C6+) has clearly a fake Apple logo - this was clearly accentuated in a telephone conversation with the customs of Germany.)
The goods are received back in the second half of September - from that moment on sheer ignorance of my emails and phone calls, and then promise to finally answer to the point ... and complete silence. No written confirmation of receipt of goods back (which is necessary for the customs, but I can without them prove it), nor any clear answer, no money back I got - anyone can ask me for further correspondence with these crooks - I'll send . So what is the Gold Supplier to our trading platforms? I have no doubt that through the police and the court will I receive my money back - but these scammers will retain its status as "good boys"?!.

Hi JerryBoy,

Sorry to hear about your unpleasant experience with Alibaba.com

I do hope the local police (in Germany) can help you get your money back but in most cases buyers never get their money back especially if you paid through Western Union - the easiest way of loosing your online.

You asked
So what is the Gold Supplier to our trading platforms?
If you haven't read our blog on Alibaba.com, a supplier with a Gold and Trustpass membership really just means that the supplier was willing to pay a bit more for a better membership package. And does NOT really mean that they are the best or safest to deal with.

Dear Richelle, this one was a fake copy named C6+ (two interfaces, first quasi iPhone UI, second - WinMob 6.1, one SIM, with iPhone logo), the item was not new and so on. Many Chinese suppliers buy such fakes and clones - I guess you can nothing to do with!..

Hi JerryBoy, I am sorry to hear about your experience. It has been repeated all throughout the SaleHoo forum that China based suppliers are not to be trusted when it comes to branded goods. It was recommended to deal with them only if you are after cheap, generic products.

Here are some related posts worth reading:
