I have come across an item (automotive) I seem to only be able to source from Made-in-china.com. The guy I'm dealing with seems genuine, has sent me photos of the item but his made-in-china site sells different products (handbags).
It's come to the crunch of making the purchase and I suggested Paypal as I figured it would give me some protection. He has come back with an email address not associated with his site. is email is at @163.com to make the transaction which raised a bit of a concern with me. I have checke this out and it seemsto be the equivilant of hotmail etc in china
has anyone used made-in-china.com before, is it know as a place where scams are run?
What would give me the best protection if I proceed via Paypal, should I make him request funds, suggest he make ian invoice etc? or shoudl I use the made in china site payment option?
I really need the part and it's hundreds of dollars cheaper than what I can source in Australia. It's only about $100 so not a bit stress but thought I would ask a bunch or rando's on the internet if I should trust the other rando I also found on the internet ;-)
