Hello all sorry for the delay from my last post, but my wife had a stroke, for everyone that sent me an email in support for her thank you for having her in your thoughts. Well in my new found quest to help all of us to stop scammers in thier tracks. I have 2 new companies to add and some great tips to help you take control of the buying process. Again, I am not an alibaba fan however you colud find some great companies out there that really work hard to make you happy. Now please do not email me with requests for cell phone companies, and PS3 compaies because I do not have a need for those products,
Before I start with the newest additions to the scammers list. I would like to state that my company is a software provider for other companies world wide. My company was in need of certain hardware to sell with our software. We needed a customized 2.5" HDD USB Enclosure that has requirements that needed to be met. So the planning and deleopment of this item is very different and as you can imanage very time consuming.. But the company I found on alibaba and they are the real deal. So check them out, they might have something you need. Top Class company and top rate products, They even did a usb thumb drive for us with our comany logo. very nicely done. So tell Lucy I sent you. And also remember to create a relationship with the supplier, if they are a good company they are not going to want your money right now, they are going to follow up and work on your terms.

Now to the really good stuff. As my company grew so did the need to need other hardware. And I have not found a good company yet on alibaba that can give you "Dell XPS" Desktop Computer, They usually always change the name to D-ell or DeL you get my drift. Now where I know you can buy Dell Manufactured Systems, is from http://dell.com and that is it. This includes, HP, IBM and all other major companies.
Here is the best advise I can give Do Not Make Western Union Payments!!!... At the very least do a TT and if you are a business, you know your bank, I use Bank Of America and they can track down a TT quicker then I can blink. And anything that is not right or seems wrong you get the money back. It is that simple. Now I am not saying that TT is a good option but when Paypal, WU, and MGram is your only option TT looks a great deal better.
So with a TT what I do is tell the supplier the payment is a TT and on my terms or no business, tell them you will pay 25% down, 15% when shpping is confirmered (Tracking Numbers), 10 % When shippment has pass customs, and 50% when the item(s) are received and verified. Now please do not use this tip for your own gain that is not right. Please pay your supplier as you gave your word. Now you can change the terms and work out the details, but I am telling you this works each and every time.
Now here is my latest entry in the scammers list and I promise you this one has a happy ending.

I worked with Bank of America to take this company down, I searched online for the company name and got a hit, So I contacted Lee, and have several discussions with her and I arranged for a purchase of 5 computer systems and 20 2.5 " harddrives. We had also contacted the bank of China as to what we were doing. They were a bit difficult to deal with but they came through, The company is a scam, and they were shut down. Here is the great twist. Like many of these scammers they scam people then get shut down and just come right back as a new company, well we traced them and they came back as a new comany the main thing that got them was the certificate of bussiness had the same name and numbers. Which the new site will be shut down within a day, it is:

Do not buy anything from this comapny.
The best thing is they have no clue how we got them. And I think the Bank of China stated this company registration number was used in a total of 25 differrent times is various local or "Limited" branches. And when all was said and done it ended up being only 6 people. So a scammer cell was shut down.
I will post again soon, as time allows and as new targets come to my attention.
