alibaba.com / fraud

1 United States Review updated:

Buyer beware about alibaba.com

I have tried on three separate occasions to purchase a nikon camera and lens on alibaba.com. Each time the merchant was friendly and helpful until the transaction was complete. I was assured that the item would be shipped quickly.in each instance I never recieved the items ordered. I was ripped off by the merchant. I am now working with paypal (not really helpful) and my credit card company to reverse the charges. When I contacted alibaba.com they told me if I win a law suite against the merchant, they will remove them from its web site. Until alibaba.com does a better job policing its site, I would not use it.

    Thieft supplier : OKBUYTRADE.COM and SZVIETERTRADE.COM (GOLD SUPPLIER) before and current my transactions. And these website worded again, but the assistant names on trademanager was change "alina in ella".
    I am pained to see how many times you have empathy for the thieves and no compassion for the victims.
    I believed you when you told me you could help me and if you're not in cahoots with the scammers as I had suggested a first time here and told you do not like because when you make me believe that you punish the unscrupulous and the way is still on you trademanager Alibaba and certain of your lists as not thieves! I'm sorry to say you are here "Alibaba and 40 Thieves" you carry your name.
    've Seen in your listing of names that fraudsters: OKBUYTRADE SZWIETER AND ARE NOT scammers ????? Almost $ 4, 000 stolen and they told me you had bothered me, the victim during a long month to provide evidence by car over, a mammoth task! Coincidentally, the day I made commpris scammed me, someone in your branch ETOCN, I disparaged your first system for Alibaba pigeon that we represent to you, to praise the merits of an alternative route created by consolidating suppliers you supposedly handpicked. Even at this stage, there is always the bad seed, you had the brilliant idea to offer your service to buyers and so on. You are the leaders who are primarily alibaba thieves, scammers and their methods more sophisticated are your rabateurs. I "concluded that over here goes, the more there a. Poor us non-Asian who continue to be ripped to the bone by Asians, who were mostly formatted to fly with us" and hehe haha "and" give me a chance "" want want "and names like alina, ella Minitel Rose etc. ...

The assistant who was responsible for the dirty work, or I should say that the manager himself PING PING SHEN which is given as first or LAN LUO Alina betwin March and April 2010, and today ELLA is given as the name. Maybe it's a drag! What do I know???
