Scams & other Unethical Activities
First time buying over seas buy stupidly purchased an Ipad 4 as a sample with the intention of larger orders in the future. Received counterfeit worthless beats head phones and can no longer get in contact with supplier.
After I was ripped off I conducted some research of my own and have concluded that;
“IF IT SOUNDS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT IS!”
Others online forums have suggested you should not purchase brand name products from China that are cheaper than retail in your own country. I will personally be staying well clear of branded electronics ie, iPhones, iPads, (ANY Apple products), processors (Intel & AMD), Plasma and LCD TV’s, Bose you name it. I thought this was my chance to get rich and start an eBay business. The idea if buying an iPad for $150usd and selling it for $1000aus is very enticing and I don’t think that if I had read this advice before my purchase I would have held off from making the purchase. I’m just glad that I learned the hard and it didn’t cost me too much.
If you are looking for more detailed information about China sourcing, follow this link and have a look at Mike Bellamy’s “China Sourcing Manual”, a great source of information and a blueprint on how to avoid being scammed in China!
Beginners tips from fellow beginner
Tip 1 Always buy 1 sample! and budget to loose that money.
Tip 2 Scammers web sites are professionally made.
Tip 3 Scammers email signatures look professional but are easily made on MS Outlook in 5mins.
Tip 4 The name of the person you are dealing with will often correspond with the “Sales Manager” contact details of their web site.
Tip 5 Just a guess but I wouldn’t be surprised if scammers copy personal details, web site links and banking details etc from Legit sites and use them in their email signatures. Think about it…you could do it in half an hour.
Tip 6 If you receive quotes and price lists from company’s you haven’t sent inquiries to your email has probably been but in a span list…DELETE THEM.
