Alibaba.com Complaint - Don't Give These Spammers Your E-Mail Address!

Review by Johnny_D on 2010-10-30
Alibaba is a story of a poor woodcutter in the Arabian Nights who gains entrance to the treasure cave of 40 thieves by saying the magic words "Open Sesame"
In the 21st Century AliBaba. Com gives a new twist to "Open Sesame" in the promise to find new suppliers or new markets by just giving them your e-mail address.

My experience has found by giving them your e-mail address is the promise of being spammed numerous times a day. Heaven forbid if you download their Trade Manager! It's "Open Sesame" to your computer! This platform slowly takes over your desktop. Took 2 days to figure out how to get it out of my computer. I also unsubscribed from them at the same time and that only lasted a week before they reappeared again. These new e-mails don't give you an option to unsubscribe.
Since they operate out of China they do what ever they want. There sourcing capabilities proved to be unreliable or drew no response from there so called "GOLD Suppliers" Give you one example, while looking for a quote for air freight from China to USA, I was provided with a query of "I have never heard of your company". I said so I never heard of you before either and I never heard from them again!
So if you like being spammed or enjoy fairy tails try AliBaba. Com.
Also please Google "Be Aware of AliBaba.com Scammers" and read about how people got scammed financially from there so called Gold Suppliers.
It's a two stage process with Alibaba.com, you get spammed on the front end and scammed on the backend!

Anything that makes big promises if I 'just send them' my e-mail will definately NOT get my e-mail.
