Buying SD cards or USB drives? Here are some tips to source safe.
Way too many listings at Supplier Blacklist involve scams targeting buyers of SD cards, micro SD cards, Flash drives and USB drives. China Sourcing Information Center did a white paper on the subject, here are some of their key points:
Because SD industry is so full of scam artists, you would be wise to assume the worst.
What kind of due diligence did you perform to confirm the seller is legit business selling legit quality products?
Did you conduct some QC before the goods were shipped?
Structure the payments so the upfront deposit is as small as you can negotiate and the remaining payments are not made until you or a 3rd party confirm the quality and order counter before the goods are released. If the seller fights the need for 3rd party QC, then they have something to hide.
