Tri Team / Beware
Please be aware of a company from China called TriTeams (or otherwise known as FansGiving). In this day of online auctions, it has become more and more popular to purchase bulk items from suppliers located in China. I made a purchase of 50 pieces of a popular brand name item for which I paid $602.00, including shipping to the USA. When the package went through US Customs, it was opened and inspected by a US government agent only to find that the items were not authentic, rather they were imitations. The items were seized and I am out more than $600.00. Even if they had been delivered, they are not from the original manufacturer as advertised, therefore I could not have resold them as an original. When I contacted my sales rep, he admitted they were imitations (I have it in writing in an e-mail) and that they could do nothing for me once they were in the hands of US Customs. He informed me that this was one of the risks of doing business and sometimes these things cannot be avoided. He also admitted that NO brand they sell is authentic, even though they claim they are direct from the original factory. Everything in their inventory is an imitation! Not only are they fakes, I ordered 50 pieces and only 44 were counted by the customs agent.
If you are planning to purchase wholesale from China, please do your homework to be certain everything is 100% authentic. But, stay away from Tri Teams.
