It is a fact that there are a lot of scammers in Shenzhen China

There are a lot of cheaters and scammers on the internet, it is time consuming and expensive for you to come to meet the suppliers in Shenzhen China, but you still want to do business with some suppliers in Shenzhen China. Which is the best platform for you to use? A lot of people choose Amazon and eBay, because you are sure that you will get your money back. The same story with Taobao, a lot of Chinese buyers think that they are guaranteed that they will get what they need, however, this is not the case. Scammers and cheaters have upgraded the way how they cheat people.

Here are my own stories, I am sharing my experience on buying a couple hard drive on Taobao.

On these websites like Taobao, eBay and Amazon, the prices need to be competitive otherwise there is no chance that they will get the business.

in December 2016, I found a cheat hard drive on Taobao for 180 RMB which is 26 USD, here is the link, normally it is 360 RMB which is twice as much ,see the link on Jingdong

 
Check the screenshot from Taobao VS Jingdong

 

 

 

 

So I was wondering and curious how they can sell it for half price, that was why I made a purchase just to see how I can get scammed and tell you the story, if I am lucky and I get an used hard drive that works, I can at least backup my Xiaomi camera (Xiaoyi surveillance camera) surveillance videos from 2015, these videos are no longer important to me.

 

When I received the this hard drive, I was surprised to see that enclosure is printed with a Samsung logo, the connector is a normal mini USB, but as you know for an external hard drive you need a USB 3.0 to a 10 pin flat micro USB type B like the following:

But what I got is a normal mini USB see picture below:

 This kind of cable is very slow and yet you need to install special driver on your computer before you are able to use it.

When I used some program to scan and check the hard drive, there are not just used but also there are some bad sectors. I need to fix and block the bad sectors before I can use it for non important files. It is not recommended to store some important data on such a hard drive, anyway, for a half price, how much would you expect? I don’t even want to waste my time to make a complaint on Taobao, and the process to return it to the seller is also time consuming.

 

Why do they want to scam me like that?

 

In fact, when I compare the price difference, I knew that I could get scammed but I just needed to try to see how I could get scammed, and it was not a lot of money, it is worth it to get the experience and share with you guys.

If you are offering something that is 360 RMB or even 300 RMB for a portable hard drive on Taobao, you will probably never get a sale or even an inquiry. The price on Taobao is very transparent, it is very difficult to make a profit if you don’t scam people.

So how can we survive if we don’t scam people? 

Taobao or Alibaba, or Aliexpress, they are the same company, they make so much money as a platform, the sellers need to make a lot of advertising fee to Taobao, and there is also a deposit needed for Taobao and an expensive annual fee on Tmall.com. As a seller in Shenzhen to overseas customers, in fact, we call them “clients”, we hope to get a long time business relationship so that we don’t need to pay a lot of advertising fee. We don’t work with short time customers because we can’t afford to do advertising and keep changing our customer database, it is also a lot of work and it takes so much time before we know each other. And also we are building a platform on our own so that the purchasing experience is so much better and it is easy for us to keep track of what we do for our customers, please be patient and wait for our “tool” which is our ERP system.

 

If you want to know how to avoid scammers, please read my post back in 2013

In fact,broken lcd is good business as well. Do you throw them away directly? Nope, you will loose your money. Some of people don’t know how to make money in this business, now I suggest you sell or refurbish them. For selling, you can just sell them to us with good prices if you just want to get rid of them. For refurbishing,we use cold glued(for iPhone) glass+frames and cold pressed way to do refurbishment. After this’s done, we will ship them back you. Mostly we ship them via DHL. They can be sold as refurbished new, the quality is very good and stable as well. We work on iPhone and Samsung broken lcd’s.

There will be a subway line going through Huaqiang North area in the next few days. The current subway lines that go through Huaqiang Bei area is Line #1, #2 and #3, and now we will have #7 shortly. If you arrive in Hong Kong first and cross the border from Huaqiang CheckPoint, you can take this subway line #7 to get to Huaqiang Bei area, arriving at the same subway station name called Huaqiang North.

One of the exits will be like this.

When you arrive here and before you go up to the ground, you can start to do a lot of shopping under the ground. Many shopping malls and markets are available on the -1 and -2 floors, you don’t need to bring your umbrella if you need to travel from markets to markets.

 

Subway Line #7’s trains look very nice, here is one of the pictures.

In the past, it is very crowded on the street, like this

qq%e6%88%aa%e5%9b%be20161025180252

But the street Huaqiang North Road has been closed for 3 years, and it is time to re-open this street for cars and buses again.

What is new here for the last 3 years.

It has been good for the cell phone, cell phone accessories and spare parts markets for the last 3 years, but the markets for industrial parts, components and tools have not been doing well, but they are now more served for the international makers and of course some local makers too.

More and more robots, 3D printers, drones are available for purchase here.
