Here are some links that can answer your questions:

  1. Do a key word search for “scam” at the CSIC website and you will learn a lot. Here is the link:  http://chinasourcinginfo.org/?cat=0&s=scam
  2. Here is another important read for you:  Too small to go factory direct?
  3. Additionally, I would like to suggest you view the following series of short videos co-produced with Global Sources.

Video1: Finding suppliers in China
Video2: Evaluating suppliers in China
Video3: Negotiations with Chinese suppliers
Video4: Project management and quality control in China
Video5: Protecting your intellectual property in China
Video6: How to organize logistics when importing from China
Video7: Avoid scams when buying famous brands direct from China
Video8: How to return defective merchandise to China
Video9: Resolving a dispute: Demand letters and legal options with Chinese suppliers

  1. And as a side note, my grammar is far from perfect, but when dealing with suppliers in China I highly encourage you to use spell check as most supplier would not be able to understand the language used in the question you sent me above for example.  It is also a good idea to have a working website to imply that you are legit.

Best wishes on your sourcing program.
