Alibaba.com Scams / scam-fraud

1 China Review updated:
Contact information:

The new modus of chinese suppliers on chinese websites was to scam, cheat innocent good buyers around the world, by making different names and sites of their company. So that they will not be identified as a scammer or a fraud. Like yuanda international trade co., ltd. For instance, is not a genuine company but one of a hoax company. The people behind this enormous scam will create many different names of a company that never been exist, so that if they already victimized a good buyer they can easily leave that site and never heard from them again. Because automatically the victim will made a complaint to the b2b or to the host online shop like alibaba.com, madeinchina.com, china. Cn, and made-in-china.com to name a few chinese websites. From then feedbacks, complaints will be posted in the internet or a blog by the victim as a warning from other good buyers. Now, other buyers will be careful on choosing a supplier and they will look with a chinese supplier who dont have a negative feedback or complaints, but not knowing that the company name was also operated by the same scam and by the same people behind the fraud and on standby to cheat and fooled another innocent good buyers.



Never accept western union, t/t, bank transfer.



Better accept paypal or cod for payment.



Modus of bogus supplier:



They will send you business certificate, license certificate to lure buyers.



They will offer you low prices for sample unit.



They will deal you to pay half of its price and sure pay the remaining balance once you recieved the items.



They will ask for the buyers scanned passport, and valid ids. Saying for their security that the buyer will sure pay the remaining balance.



They will email you with list of branded products from cellphones, game consoles, digital camera, laptops with low prices in it.



Beware on this new modus... I was a victim of this new modus from chinese websites specially yuanda international co., ltd.



I would like to share to you this video. My purchased order is a sample unit nikon d90 with 18-105mm vr lens. Unfortunately I recieved a different item. I hope this will serve as a warning to all good buyers around the world.

    Alibababa is a historic name contigous to thiefs, look at the company called "Zengming International Trading Co., Ltd." in 'http://www.alibaba.com/trade/search?SearchText=used+laptop&Country=&CatId=0&IndexArea=product_en&sq=y' which is in the same time on the black list of ALIBABA on an other page 'http://resources.alibaba.com/trade_safe/blacklist-company41.html' !!! .
    you can see that ALIBABABA itself is a scamming co. ltd.
    RUN AWAY AS FAST AS YOU CAN ... HURRY UP

    how to avoid fraud or scam from alibaba, ebay, aliexpress or china wholesale
    Now china become the world factory, and export every field products to all around the world.
    So for company, they want to find supplier by B2B web, like the alibaba.com, globalsourse.com, made-in-china.com, ec21.com, especially alibaba-the biggest b2b web .
    For personal, they want to buy products from china wholesaler like importandgo.com, or they can also buy them from ebay, aliexpress, taobao, dangdang .
    Yes, they can buy cheaper product from ebay or alibaba than their city’s shop .But some online seller don’t have good credit, they cheat buyers -get money but don’t delivery goods. how to avoid fraud or scam on web ???
    People organized on web and list the fraud or scam on ebay, or discuss on the alibaba forum and ask other guys do not place order to these scam company . even they can set subject for most china wholesale and compare their quality, price &service.
    However, while the priest climbs a foot, the devil climbs
    Many customer trapped and lost money, time by these fraud .
    Now a multinational company proudly said they can help you to avoid this problem .
    Agentandgo is an purchasing agent, and they have office in spain and shenzhen, China . when you want to buy products from china,
    For company, if you can not visit supplier when you do business at 1st time with this supplier. agentandgo can go to the supplier address for you and see whether this supplier is factory or not . they can take photos and you can check whether the supplier’s machine can meet your target .and estimate how many worker they have, what is square the factory have !! after you confirm the supplier can meet your require and they are not fraud .then you can place order to them and transfer fund .
    Even after production and ready to send, agentandgo can inspect the quality for you . You know, after you get products and test them . then you find that products quality can not pass the test . it is too late, because it waste your too much time &energy .especialy in the intense competitive world . So they can check for you and report how about the quality when the products at supplier factory .
    For personal, they buy small volume products from ebay, online china wholesale, or alibaba . so they have more chance to meet scams. even ebay have star status, alibaba has gold member . many guys still tricked .
    So when you find a good product at alibaba or ebay, agentandgo can help you to buy . test products and send them to your address directly .
    even you want to find a product, they can also find it for you !!!
    For all what they do, they only get commistion according to your order value !!

    I just want to warn everyone of Langfang Xinyuzhu Trading Co., Ltd. I just ordered 10, 000 envelopes from them and they arrived today, ripped, badly cut and with black spots all over them. They are terrible quality and nothing like I had ordered. DO NOT DEAL with this company - I spoke to Joyce and Yogi. Be warned they are absolutely hopeless and total crooks. They advertise on Alibaba.

    Alibaba is only a platform between the buyers and the suppliers. Even with A&V check, it doesn’t weed out scammers 100%. I strongly suggest buyers do some thorough research before dealing with online supplier, just as you would with real life business partners. Use escrow as a form of payment instead of Western Union is the easiest way to protect yourself. Invest wisely.

    hearing all this stories about scaming the general rule has appear: make a reasearch of your prospective supplier! Personally I prefer to deal with european b2b platform. I use momoway business searcher, for me is more transparent, but still always make double, tripple check of my prospective supplier, this is my recipe for avoiding scams:)
