    This is the best option! It's scary how these scammers can obtain high ratings in a short period of time. You have to research the supplier and the site they're listed on.

    Hello,

    The problem here is because the 200 pieces order from a 5 star company is too small.
    They will give you rubbish.
    Even you report their company is useless, because they sell real capacity to big orders.

    Good luck

    Re: 5 Star Global Sources Supplier Scam - Bright Lead International

    Well, I admit, I was the one said 'You can rest assured that it's a real registered company, not a fraud'.

    Am I right, or wrong was not important. The important thing is when you complained, I gave you the full refund.

    If you call this company 'Bright Lead International Ltd' as a fraud company, why they refunded you?

    I never see any scammer, fraud will give you full refund.

    You just need to buy 1 or 2 sample pieces to get the full test, once you're satisfied, then buy 100 or 1000pcs.

    So, don't pass the buck to others, reflect on yourself! :thumbup:

    You don't know the full story, only that you said this company was genuine when they weren't, selling fake chipsets as genuine capacity

    The only reason they refunded was as a direct result of this thread, Emily said if she refunds will I remove the thread, so before making your comments of passing the buck, perhaps know the full story

    Anyway, this was aimed at the company not you, I didn't name any names, you have identified yourself...

    I have just gone to their page on Global Sources and see they have rebranded from Brightlead to H and S Electronic Group Ltd:

    http://brightlead.manufacturer.globalsources.com/si/6008834071220/Homepage.htm

    Brightlead in the link, H and S as the company name this link goes to

    They are also using a PO Box as their contact address, I have no idea how they have managed to reach 6 star status, maybe new management, new direction, but my advise still stands, if you order from them, make sure you know EXACTLY what you are buying

    Because I have the bold to admit my fault, if I were. Unlike you...:thumbdown:

    In the international business, nobody can guarantee you other company's business integrity. You need to use cautions to test the water than diving in quickly.

    What a company verification means, we checked the company's registration, contact No. business license, etc. whether those information were true info or false. Is it a genuine company or a scammer.

    We didn't assure you their business practice will be exact meet your requirements, unless you order a full sourcing service from the 3rd party.

    BTW, how much did you pay for the verification service? When did we refund you? I just couldn't find the record.

    Anyway, thank you for bring this lesson. I fell, I learned, and I grew. :thumbup:

    And I am at fault here why?

    Getting a company verified, being scammed, then warning others?

    If that is a fault as you say, then fine, but warning others of my bad supplier experience in a sub-forum labelled 'Bad Supplier Experiences' maybe I have compeletly misunderstood the point of this forum...! ;)

    Again, I did not mention any names when I originally posted this thread, it is you bringing yourself up

    As already posted above, they have rebranded, to hide a bad name? A name linked to scamming? If they had nothing to hide, why change their name?

    I'll be honest, you are really selling yourself to be used for future verification with your attitude

    >>>And I am at fault here why?

    As I said, because you didn't test the water, just diving in directly. You should order 1-2 samples to test first.

    Second, you ruin their reputation, called a genuine company as a scammer, fraud, so they have to change their name.


    >>>Getting a company verified, being scammed, then warning others?

    Nobody scammed you. If you were scammed, why you get full refund?

    >>>If that is a fault as you say, then fine, but warning others of my bad supplier experience in a sub-forum labelled 'Bad Supplier Experiences' maybe I have compeletly misunderstood the point of this forum...! ;)

    I won't mind to disclose my name. Being there, done that. :cool:

    Excuse me, Sir. What's your name? Why you're hiding under the cloak?:thumbdown:

    This is getting a bit farcical now, feel free to keep trying to turn this on me somehow when all I did was warn others of a bad supplier experience

    I will let the TWF community come to their own conclusions regarding this, I literally cannot be bothered to argue with you about something that wasn't even aimed at you in the first place...

    Because you ruined their name. :@

    So they have to rebuild the brand name, upgrade to 6 stars, and with the same, old link to find them.

    You really can't so irresponsibly call a company as a scam, when they're a genuine one.

    What's wrong with my attitude? :\

    Tell the TWF community to vote, whether it's a scammer or fraud company or not.

    Normally, I would not argue with my customer. You are the exception. You are the first one who used our service then asked refund.

    It is a good lesson we learned how to guard our time, our effort and our service to serve our future client better.

    Thank you, dude! :rolleyes:

    Yes, I single handedly ruined a companies name so they went to all the effort of rebranding :lol:

    Selling fake memory cards as real...yep, these are definately a genuine company

    In fairness I did post they refunded, I could have just left it:

    I had a bad experience, I shared it with TWF, now suddenly a year later you pop up defending them

    The fact that at no point did I mention you directly or tarnish your name, yet you keep finding something to argue about. Are you having a bad day? Direct it somewhere else...

    Anyway, feel free to keep posting. I have better things to do like buy from my actual genuine suppliers

    Too funny, this is beyond a joke now, how can TWF vote if they are scam or not, how are they supposed to know? I have proved they are


    MOD, FEEL FREE TO CLOSE AS THIS IS GETTING OUT OF CONTROL NOW
