Hello,
everyone that recently signed up as a trade agent for this site, or company Fortlux Ltd., stop all transactions - you will never receive the goods.

I have been scammed for 330 EUR. The contract never arrived, needless to say that neither the orders. :(

Well now even the site has been suspended by their host, but if they ever turn up anywhere else, beware.
The company is Fortlux Ltd. from Poland, two of the contacts are named Grigoriev Fjodor and Igor Sinkevics. Though I doubt those are their real names.

This was the ad for the job:

You would not believe the extent of the scam, so many details it was really hard to tell. But after joining SaleHoo and taking a stroll through the suppliers list, I noticed the prices were really the thing that should have been enough of a warning.

Yes I was scammed 420 euro. So upsetting for people just starting out. I'm looking to start up an internet business selling items following my husbands illness and loss of income and when things like this happens and especially when it was the first company you approached, it is really heart renching.

Seems the right kind of people are attracted to this.
I am also in bad shape after I had to quit my full time job since the employer was not paying me regularly. He still owes me more than 2300EUR. Damn criminal.
