On 11th of October 2016 I’ve ordered 2,500 pcs of USB flash drives. In a week after I made a down payment of 9,720 CNY (around 1,500 USD) the supplier in China told me that he has already sent my order and asked for the final payment. When I asked him to sent me the pics of my purchase, he told me to wait and provided the pics in 2 days only. After that I sent him the final payment of 22,400 CNY (3,446 USD). After he got the money, he disappeared.
This Chinese company sent a sample 64GB USB drive that was functional. Then sent 500 Units all fakes, flashed to appear to be 64gig capacity but in reality only 8gigs.
I have made a purchase of 6,000 pcs USB 8GB on 22 Nov. 2015 , until now I still have not received the goods. During negotiation and sample request they are very prompt and efficient. After I had made the payment, everything change, phone call line closed and email no reply.
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. Find here some of their key points!
