Hi things_that_sell,

I'm not too sure about this supplier's reliability. Although I have to say some of their prices are quite tempting, right?

There is nothing written regarding their products' authenticity, they are barely a year old - I mean they have been online for just 3 months or so, this makes me a bit more hesitant to deal with them even though they do accept credit cards. I think them being quite new to the online world could possibly be the reason why there is nothing much about them, negative/positive on other forums.

We always recommend that you deal with established suppliers, those that have been online for at least two years.

Hope this helps. Cheers!

P.S. Any one else, who's familiar about this supplier? Your inputs are needed and will be well appreciated! Thanks in advance :)

I tried to go back to the website and it wasn't anymore! I guess it was probably a scam.

Thank you for you help

No problem, things-that-sell! :)

At least our gut feel was on the right track and good thing you didn't decide to buy from them.

Cheers!

@gregorio5: Sorry but the three sites you listed are too dodgy. First f all you found them on Alibaba.com - this site is famous for the rampant scams buyers incur when buying from suppliers there.

Also all three sites offered inadequate or no contact details at all - Ideally a supplier should provide you with a landline phone number, physical address and a domain based email add.

The first two sites claimed to accept PayPal but when I tried to buy one of their products there was no link to PayPal. This is false advertisement and is not done by true and trustworthy suppliers.

These are Chinese suppliers but they offer various brand name items - Remember rule no.1 when dealing with Chinese suppliers never ever buy anything branded, the likelihood of the product being fake is 9 out of 10.

Here's an expose we did about Alibaba.com, you may want to read it:
