Trade Tang known as tradetang.com is an internet scam. Everyone needs to steer clear of this site. Even if payment is made through PalPal it is not guaranteed. The only thing PayPal will guarantee is if purchase is made on Ebay. BEWARE of Trade Tang. I ordered 4 diamond bracelets and received 4 bracelets that appear to be toy bracelets. There is no international tracking available when returning items, either. File police report through ic3.gov and warn everyone that if it's too good to be true...it is.

Yes I agree that Tradetang is a "SCAM"...I ordered a so called Gibson L-5
for $397.00 and recieved a poor copy worth zero. Beware of TRADTANG.COM I found that Guitar888, sunyanli888 and xixgang are using pics copied from Ebay sellers. If double click on the picks takes you to EbAy. I am past the 5 day period to seattle with the seller who only wanted to refund $35.00 back. At this time I am in the Esculated Despute where customer service get in the picture...lets see what happens! Update Soon.

See pics attached...The real L-5 has red label inside Fhole "guitar standing".
The flat guitar is what was sent and bridge does not fit. The headstock pic is from the copy sent.

I have also order from China, twice I receive what I from another trade company, but I try trade tang and order a lace wig, and I got a wig that I could have brought from a wig store for $20.00... they did send me the full lace wig that have on their site, the wig I receive was black and it was not a lace wig.. I am out of $60.00 from them.. I also went on e0bay to bid on a lace wig from China and just receive a regular wig that I could have brought from any wig store for about #25.00 and I am out $80.00 from e-bay.. China companies is not sending out lace wigs but just wigs, There is no deals in China!!!

Tradetang is a scam, I ordered 2 watches at $180 and the days went by and I kept trying to track my package with no luck.

I sent emails and messages to tradetang and the response was that the riots in china may be causing the problems and when I asked how the riots would stop me from tracking a package they stopped talking with me and erased my order information from their site.

I told them I was filing a claim with paypal and nothing back from them and my order information is erased without a trace and they refuse to get back with me.

Their site says they hold the customers money in escrow until the merchandise is delivered successfully so that vendors can't scam our money. They told me right before their last communication with me that I had to contact the vendor and I have no idea who that is since I used tradetang.

I guess this is a cheap lesson compared to what some people lose on scams but anyone that uses tradetang.com is asking for trouble.

They charged me £42.00 for postage, I found out later that the postage only cost them £1.50. THEY ARE THIEVES STAY WELL CLEAR OF THEM!!!

I must agree to all the comment written. I thank you for heads up. I decided I would chat with the company online and as ''I started asking question they couldn't answer them and that alarmed me to check with comments or scams about company and I found all the above comments. STAY AWAY AND DON'T ORDER FROM THEM . I scared them and they stop talking to me on chat. SAVE YOUR MONEY and all ways google if there is any bad comments or scams about a company before sending your money.

I gambled and sent off $345.00 for a "Gibson" guitar, received a cheap plywood guitar unlike any model Gibson has ever made. It did have a nice "Gibson" logo on the headstock. I gave it away as it is a monstrosity and could only get me in trouble if I tried to sell it. Lesson learned, if it sounds too good to be true, IT IS!!!

Sadly, TradeTang is an internet scam.

Comment to 4on6jazz. What did you expect... a real Gibson for a couple of hundred USD? Everybody knows they make replicas in China but the guitars generally hold "ok" quality if you give them a good set up and change pickups and hardware. I have one that I'm very happy with. As for you people that think you will get real gold or dimonds for no a few bucks...get real!

The problem is that TradeTang sellers us othe pictures from Ebay sites to sell what they really don't have. See the picture that (Guitar888) had on his site and what I ordered.
See the pic's above 04-03-2009 which is not what I ordered. If TradeTang Sellers really do not have the item they list get OFF the site. Us Buyers expected to get what we pay for not counterfit Trash from China. Chinas sellers need to understand this, be good to the buyer or else the buyer stops buying for TradeTang. That all there is to it. I will never buy again from TradeTang and maybe not from other China sellers also. Again see the pic of what I ordered...L5. I recived a half ###...trash.

Hi, its fred here. Today is Tuesday 9th Feb 2010. Have been trying to ring the chinese embassy in London. Again like an idiot purchased a Rickenbacker (which should of been a 12 string 360 model in fireglow). The guitar had a case and what I took to be ligit paperwork, spoke to seller via email, yes it is a beautiful guitar and comes with what the pictures are showing, his written description said you receive case, paperwork etc as per pictures. When the parcel arrived I queried it with the van driver as the guitar I ordered should of arrived with an oblong case, the one that arrived was a triangular shape package. My immediate thoughts were I.ve been conned. I filed a dispute with trade tang, refusing to open the package, this was ordered on the 22 November 2009, received on the 29th November. We have now sent pictures of the package, and as much detail as possible to get nowhere. We have been corresponding with a Lisa who just keeps coming back offering me $30 off the guitar which costs $375.00. Lisa told me 2 weeks ago that I should open the package to see whats in it, to my disbeleif it was a 6 string guitar and not a 12, totally the wrong colour plus other things that are incorrect to what I ordered. May i just say here that for a replica guitar it is a fantasic instrument for the money but it doesnt detract from the fact that it is not what I ordered. Heres the crap, Lisa tells me that trade tang will refund my money if I post the guitar back, what the hell would that cost, their policy states that broken or non workable goods must be sent back at your expense, fair play. They dont say anything about totally wrong goods being sent out. To cap the lot the seller Wang8888 emailed me telling me that us english are too picky and too fussy and that I should accept what he had sent me. I ask what can I do now? Paid via Paypal, who cannot do anything because it is a transaction out of ebay. Contacted my bank who doesnt want to know. Trading Standards more or less laugh in your face, so perhaps I am a silly englishman. As I say have tried the chinese embassy but they are on holiday apparently. I myself feel that it is time to have a sort out with these type of companies, my intention is to ring the Sun newspaper to see if they can help, possibly contact my local MP and retry the chinese embassy next week when they should be back from their holiday. Is it possible for all of us people to band together and try to sort this situation out, after all the chinese regard the english as stupid. Will do my best to let you know what happens, regards, Fred.
