Beware the factory that isn’t!!! Chinese sourcing directory websites are full of these scams!

Clients often come to me with tales of woe after getting caught in the Chinese factory scam. They have been on well known sourcing directory websites and think they have found a great factory to make their product. The factories web site looks wonderful, they speak English and they claim to export around the world. What could go wrong?...........It all ends in tragedy with poorly made products or the money disappearing all together.

A common occurrence is that Shenzhen Chinese with good English decide they would like to go into business themselves. They design a nice professional looking web site, ticking all the boxes that you could need. When you talk to them, they are persuasive, and you part with your money, on the understanding they will meet your expectations.

However, in reality, they have no factory. They hunt around for back street factories to manufacture your product for the cheapest possible cost. You end up with poor quality goods. Beware, they will even send you a good sample to get your money, then source the main batch elsewhere.

Only this week, a client asked us to check out the factory he found and claimed to be perfect. On investigation we found the factory claimed to be in Shenzhen, but the area code on the website was for Zhejiang, a long way from where it purported. The telephone number was actually a university. When we finally talked to them, they changed their story every time we put them under pressure. All the signs of a scam!

If you want your product made or sourcing professionally, talk to David, our UK based Director at David@ywschinadirect.com. We make sure we fully understand your needs, our British Director in China will facilitate the manufacturing process to make sure you get exactly what you expect.
