Wholesaledeals.co.uk scams

They own most of the websites which post all the good reviews. They own wholesaleforum.com and dropshipforum.com and a lot of drop ship scam blogs and many other wholesale scam sites.

They own these sites to try and hide bad reviews about themselves. Why would a honest company have so many websites posting good reviews about themselves.

Try saying something bad about them on there website and see what happens to your review ? Loads of fake people will start saying your talking rubbish and then later the review will be removed.

Try going on THE WHOLESALE FORUMS and talk about wholesaledeals.co.uk, guess what will happen ? The post will be removed and the forum owner, mods will say sorry we can't talk about that site.. Complete SCAM here.

The address means nothing they have had so many small claims court letters sent there nothing happens.

If you have lost money from this company you need to open a dispute with your bank and tell the world how you feel, someone needs to stop them from scamming people who just want to make a living.

I feel very sorry for all the people who signed up before reading all the bad press.

The deals are really old and the RRP is not true. You can find these suppliers by looking on google.

Bunch of middle men advertising and you can't make that much money dealing with middlemen.

Best to deal with manufactures direct and use escrow as payment or pay with a credit card with your paypal.com account.

If you feel you have been scammed contact your bank and if there charge back is more then 1% they will soon be removed

Resolution statement


The company did everything to try to resolve the issue, but after several attempts to contact the complainant, no answer has been received. Therefore the complaint is declared to be untrue.

We could say the same about the fake negative reviews you are trying to get ranked in search engines :) There is never any proof of purchase with those negative reports. Anybody can write negative reviews, especially about services that are so good that competitors struggle to keep up.

Read these:

http://www.wholesaleforum.com/discuss/wholesale-dropshipping-reviews-5043/wholesaledeals-co-uk-review-wholesaledeals-truths-revealed-wholesale-deals-1464/

http://www.wholesaleforum.com/discuss/wholesale-discussion-24/esources-esources-co-uk-scam-reviews-anyone-used-them-scam-1101/

Since we know which site you own, maybe we should start posting some comparison charts. Or maybe not ;)

The information on Wholesale Deals is live, and can be consulted before paying any money. Your site on the other hand hides everything. Obviously you have an interest in spreading negative reviews. You are a one man band, who tries to bash competitors to keep the little market share you are left with. Enough said.

For details of who is posting the above messages, see:

Thank you for the warning about the wholesale deals scam, with further research they also
own the esources website, another scam website with a poor reputation. Not a lot of social media content either, they would not like real customers venting their anger, so just lots of fake positive reviews on the forums and blogs they edit and own!

@ wdeals: Wholesaledeals co uk, esources and wholesaleforum are all for the same company and same person, Stefano Carboni. Make a google search of 'Stefano Carboni Scam' and you will be surprised with the many complains on this person. Make a who.is search if you want to confirm that these companies are registered under his name. They are posting a ling on wholesaleforum supposedly showing it to be an independant site where it clears its name. Wholesaleforum belongs to them only, so they can write anything on it! Try to write a negative review on any of the above companies on wholesaleforum and you will see it never appears. I once asked to meet them at wholesaledeals and they said it's not possible. Why? Simply because they are using a fake address (Gloucester Road, London) for their company address. They are also using a mobile number as their contact number so that they can block / refuse calls easily. I had an acount with esources and it was closed without notice couple of months after I bought a one year subscription. This was simply because I was not happy with the service and asked for a refund as per distance selling regulations only a few days after buying the subscription. They do not have a business email address, are using a fake office address and are writing professional comments to con peoples. Their esources site also mentions of money back guarantee, haha. Keep dreaming if you think you will get anything back. How will you get in touch with they if they do not have a contact address, email or number?

All in all wholesaledeals, wholesaleforum and esources are a total rip off.
The only place you will find good reviews about them are on their own website. Other places where you find so is by their own peoples posting fake reviews for the company. The one man behind this is the owner, Stefano Carboni. A who.is search will show all these companies are registered under his name. The registered business address is fake. They use a mobile number as their contact. I had my account closed without notice after 2 months I paid for a 1 year Gold subscription. They do not have a business email address nor a customer support. The name Priya is just a fake name. This Stefano Carboni is one of the biggest fraud I have come across. Make a google search on Stefano Carboni Scams and you will see that he is simply conning peoples.

Competitor fluff and again no proof of purchase and no proof of the statements made :D

1. Largest resource of verified suppliers in the UK (by a mile, 130, 000+ and growing daily)
2. Largest resource of profitable deals in the UK, unlike the sites posting these fake reviews, who are intermediaries and never update content.
3. All testimonials verifiable via an email trail, PayPal payment trail and electoral roll
4. Price guarantee on all deals purchased individually
5. Unlimited research

Try asking the posters above what proof their site can give you ;)

If you are smart, you can easily check the statements above. If you are a fool, go with the sites owned by the above sham posters ;) you'll be in for a nice surprise.

wish id seen this earlier... wondered why no deals would come up at all so was a bit naughty and captured the code

anyway pulled the code up, and there is no deals lol... that 'used' to be there the script for that element is gone, and replaced by links bypassing any sort of button that would work with a data base.

(you can see it in the code - where you would have a script generate an add to cart button... well have a look, its that amateurish you can right click inspect element and find it.

Copied a load of it, sendng it off to paypal and hist hosting provider (against their terms of use)
cannot see the site being up muchj longer, nor the dumby running it, massive level of 'obtaining monies by fraud and deception) - all the code ive pulled shows what this site is selling you is a fabrication as its simply impossible to do anything.

He will defo be getting bummed no lube in the nicker lol, the gangbangers love the little fat ###ers hehe :)

I have to agree, scammers all the way and yes a fake London addess is a company office rental box with 500 other companies listed at the same building, no real offices or customer services, No wonder the CCJ are ignored! I would avoid or lose your money as they own all the fake blogs all over the net written by cheap Indian based SEO bloggers !

I just did further research on the name Stefano carboni scam and he does indeed own wholesaleforum and dropshipforum the dot com versions, so all the positive reviews are on the websites he owns! This esources and wholesale deals website scammer is not advertising on any 3rd party or independent websites as is banned from them, also had a look at address, thanks Mohammed, address box is available from as low as £39 VAT. If you do require a wholesale company, check out , its free!

:) Competitors at it again. Whois information can be faked, the fact whois information is the same for all domains is proof that there is nothing to hide.

You, on the contrary, are a competitor posting using fake usernames. We understand it hurts to be so far behind with your service quality, however the solution is to work hard for your members, just like we do since 2004.

Wholesale Deals remains the largest database of verified suppliers on the web, new deals added daily, custom sourcing support and guarantee on single deal purchases ; )

See wholesaleforum.com for details of the people posting these fake reviews.

This is the Wholesale Deals guarantee:

1. New Wholesale and Dropship Deals added daily
2. Price guarantee on deals purchased individually
3. Unlimited research: need more sources? Just ask.
4. Free advice on how to source intelligently
5. Over 150, 000 verified sources, and growing.

In short, we continue to grow and we love to help our customers. Surely there is only one type of person who dislikes our success :) And that person is an inefficient competitor who has every interest in charging resellers for cheap lists.

We love helping our customers, we have been dedicated to their wellbeing since 2004 and will continue to do so with complete passion. Thanks again for your fake review though, each time it’s an opportunity to explain why we are considered the best and why you need to resort to fake reviews to remain in business ; )

What is very telling is that nowhere does Wholesale Deals (WD) demand retraction of supposedly libellous comments & accusations. I have been considering using their services but the fact that it seems no legal actions has been taken to defend their reputation makes one wonder if there is truth in what others accuse them of. WD says the comments are made by jealous competitors so if that's the case they must know who they are; so why don't they sue them? As i say I've not used their services but I am considering doing so, however what i've read worries me greatly.

We love helping our customers, we have been dedicated to their well being since 2004 and will continue to do so with complete passion ; )
