it looks like a potential typical fraud, however, i could be wrong. when in doubt, always get samples, . is this member trustpass verified or a gold supplier? And what country is this member from? I notice this companys fax number is the same as the phone, i always consider that a red flag, especially for a supplier. however, this company is a buying office, so anything is possible...this company just joined alibaba, so i would tread i said, get samples, so you dont risk too much money...maybe they will let you do escrow....

I would be weary myself. 1st thing they did was lower their shipping from 1,000 to 500. Then they offer you sample for 400 and 100 shipping for 500 total. Seems to me they really want your money and would rather have 500 of it if you are not willing to part with 5000 of it.

2nd, being registered with Alibaba, no matter what type of membership they have, will not protect you if you you wire ransfer. *Also, the US government is nt going to just take time out of their day to call police in that other country and 'catch' them.

With sites like Alibaba use a legitimate escrow company like and nothing else!

If you have 500 to put up, and he will accept escrow payment, go for it, as the only way to see if is legit is to test him out.

If he will only accept wire transfer RUN, he figures 500 of your money is better than nothing.
