    Hi i'm new here ,not here to advertise etc. been looking in this supplier section for a while now and was wondering what you make of these. bear in mind this is my first time wholesaling.

    *******************

    I have been talking to the sales rep 'Brittany' hengfa002[a-t]hotmail.com And i enquired about a laptop they have a dell xps m1750 $768 Which is very cheap but could be to cheap to be true, i asked how they got them and she said they were manufactured in Fujian,China but would not give any details of the manufacture apart from Hengfa International Trade Co. Ltd and i managed to get the registration number of there company 3503003001902. i dont know if this was right of me but i then went onto to ask questions about the business if she had any proof that they were legitmate etc. she sent me a certificate which i will add as an attachment and a product list . I was wondering if anyone could do any traces to this biusiness. They also have connections with ***************** .

    Sorry for my english its freezing up here in the north of england :)

    Thanks for any input / advice.

    Why the large image Sean? you should provide a link instead.

    Both sites sell counterfeit goods you should stay well away. You should give the forums more of a read and then you will realise you cannot get legitimate branded goods from China.

    receiving counterfeit goods is illegal. It is highly likely that customs will detect that you are receiving a counterfeit item which could result in a fine.

    We don't condone purchasing fake goods here.

    ask them for tracking number of any shippment to see if they really make shipment.

    since it is for personal use, i think it will be better you spend a bit more in a dell store to get one. just spend some more and you will worry nothing.

    sophiafara - You're on the wrong forum! We do not condone the sale/sourcing of counterfeit goods. Whether its for personal use or not, you shouldn't entertain these sorts of business dealings.

    Nice trying to stereotype me , but no im not advertsing so instead of saying i am please just don't say anything unless you have a valid reason too. I didn't relise that they were going to copy the trademarked components but a clone like some of the ipod nanos i have seen floating around. You may close this topic.

    Youwill be suprised mate what they can clone. They did teh entire NEC company a little while back. They didnt just clone the products but the entire company down to the business cards that the reps took with them while visiting retailers etc. Even some big UK chains bought TV´s etc from them without knowing it.

    Its not just the new trader that needs to be careful
