Who is good on researching purse sellers? http://www.etsy.com/shop/SusanLeatherDesign

is an example of purses being resold, ships from the USA, photographed with all the right props. But they forgot to write all of it in English 高级时装, 时髦 is in some of the listings
http://www.etsy.com/listing/104503453/cow-leather-quilting-bag-shoulder-bag

and “brand name ” of LEFT BANK appears in some photos

This one has a model number sticker on it

And these ones come with plastic protectors on the handle, just like from the factory!!

charms4you, AgHalo

12 Jul

The two sneaky resellers to report. The shops I am referring to are Charms4You: http://www.etsy.com/shop/charms4you and AgHalo: http://www.etsy.com/shop/AgHalo. Now, while they may be “Etsy legal” for putting a charm on a chain, or just selling the charm, it is quite obvious they do not make their post earrings. As for AgHalo, I don’t believe she makes her toe rings or her ear cuffs either. I’ve reported these two to Etsy’s Marketplace Integrity Team several weeks ago to no avail. I don’t for a moment think either of them have the wherewithal to pass off being able to make this stuff themselves what with Etsy requiring extensive photographic evidence as proof and the materials receipts with dates.

Charms4You – http://www.etsy.com/shop/charms4you

She passes off her stud/post earrings as being supplies: http://www.etsy.com/shop/charms4you?section_id=6410355

These are clearly purchased at wholesale elsewhere to resell as they are available from a number of places:

Another interesting tidbit, she has another shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Molds which she doesn’t disclose in either of her shop profiles.

AgHalo – http://www.etsy.com/shop/AgHalo

She takes things a bit further as she lists everything as handmade and includes ear cuffs and toe rings: http://www.etsy.com/shop/AgHalo?section_id=7222881

Why you cannot get rid of Etsy resellers, here is an example, Etsy protects them, and they can lie as much as they want.
http://www.etsy.com/shop/thaisaket

they have been called out a number of times on this site, but they continue to provide fake proof that they are making stuff. The own a number of sites on etsy under different names.

Lets look at their proof:

http://www.etsy.com/shop/thaisaket

If you look at all the photos you will realize several things.

Nothing actually got made. This is a photo of a slave labor shop. I don’t think they are making haren pants there. There is a photo of a very expensive sewing machine that nobody is using. Shops like this in Thailand, there are 20 on every block. You got people
with sewing machines out in front of grocery stores, in front of barber shops, at swap meets, everywhere. It would be very easy to rent the services of one of these shops to sit and take photos in their shop. If you are old enough, you can remember harem pants back in the 70s. Made in India, Nepal, China, mostly in big factories with slave labor. This is where they are made, not in this blog shop. This is the kind of useless evidence that etsy takes.

You can find all of Marks clothing on Ystreet Fashion on facebook. It is all made in China and can be had for less than $10 US. Anybody can buy it to resell.

All of his clothing is bought at this shop who has a website.
http://www.weloveshopping.com/shop/s_product.php?page=5&shopid=112738&groupproduct=all

This shop is across from the UOB bank in Pratunam Market, in the basement, it is a pink shop.

here is the info of what you can find shipping in this market.

Rising an impressive 88 storeys high, the Baiyoke Sky Hotel is Thailand’s tallest building. A distinctive feature of Bangkok’s skyline, it also marks the spot for one of the city’s all-time, favorite pursuits: Shopping! A scandalous variety of goods are on offer.

Here is another one of their shops on etsy.

http://www.etsy.com/shop/AnyonesFashion

these two shops are just copies of dozens of other similar shops who resell, plus 100s of similar shops on Ebay. Just take a look. You can find the same clothing, same cloth and sizes just about everywhere.

The name should be everwheresclothingmarkedup

This shop is owned by the same person here claiming they are making earrings. The changed their name from theearringchest to avoid people like us reporting them.

http://www.etsy.com/shop/FakeGaugeOrganics

do you really think a white boy from Henderson, Nevada is sitting at a workbench in Thailand making earrings?

You only need to look here to see this guy is full of twinkies.

http://resellonetsy.wordpress.com/2012/03/02/reselling-on-etsy-for-big-profits-part-3/bodytouchonline-com/

On this site, you can find all the links to earrings that are sold my Mark and Lai.
You don’t have to cut them in half, as he probably sent photos to etsy. They cut them for almost nothing in Bali and give you almost the same price as earrings that are just gauged.

You have to figure, once a liar, always a liar. On Ebay, this same person claims to be a supplier of silver brass biker jewelry, since 2005?

Check Ebay closer, all his stuff is caller silver brass, even though all the same merchandise is being sold by Chinese factories for $7 a ring as stainless steel.
Last time he came to comment on etsycallout, he blamed disgruntled sellers that were kicked off etsy for calling him out. I think this is the same person that had silver brass copies of designer jewelry on etsy, and probably opened a bunch of sites. Ya, this is feedgoodfashion who was selling copies and now sells these copies on Ebay.

This is what etsy allows. Its up to you people to find proof that these people are lying, no matter what they did to try to prove to etsy they are really making the stuff. Etsy is really a joke site, worse than Ebay, maybe down in the garbage with Ioffer that allows the sales of 1000s of copies. What do you think this clothing on etsy is anyway. A bunch of copies. People like these just insult your intelligence.

I see another question coming up on this site. Is a Chinese factory a group of artists?
Nope! Have I ever been inside of a Chinese factory? Yes. They hire young people, often as young as 14, pay them less than $100 a month, they have to sleep in the factory, eat in the factory, and sometimes they don’t pay them for 3 months. If the people quit and leave, they never get paid, that way, the factory can hire and train new people often without paying the old people. That is how most of the clothing is made you see on Etsy. If you can buy i wholesale in Thailand for $5, how much do you think it will sell for in China? Like those $1 shirts from Cambodia that sell for $100 in retail stores in the USA that put their label on them. The imperfect ones get sold in Asia for $2 by the kilo.

People making earrings in Bali are some of the most low paid people on the planet. The often sleep on a pile of leaves and piss out in the jungle. Etsy is a bed of exploitation, not the artists site they pretend to be. That is all clever marketing to do one thing only, make a bunch of money.

So, if you report this guy, make sure and associate him with his partners, feelgoodfashion, earringclub, and a number of other shops that got removed from etsy for reselling and serious copyright violations. If you call up any of his listings you will find out he spams a lot, meaning putting words into his keywords that are not correct for what he is selling.

If Etsy can hook up your reports with people that got removed before, its not that hard to get the people removed. This seller should be removed for a number of reasons. I will give you a list of all his shops soon. Just look at the evidence I have provided, you will see these are dishonest shops supported by etsy, who in reality, don’t care, and are probably suckers for fake information.

Ok i hope this is how you report a reseller (i also sent an email, no response). I noticed that within a week there have been 2 resellers on the FP both selling the same massed produced hair ties!

http://www.etsy.com/listing/92046125/elastic-hair-ties-light-neutrals-hair
http://www.etsy.com/listing/92865581/the-electric-hair-tie-package-5-bright

The reason I am certain they’re not “handmade” is because I bought a pack of the black ties (featured in the 2nd link) at the Dollar Tree for $1! I contacted Etsy, but alas, nothing was done.

epocahermosa

2 Jul
I have been reporting epocahermosa for weeks, beginning shortly after the shop opened.  More than a month later, they are still on Etsy.  Seems to be a seller under the special protection of Etsy’s Marketplace Integrity Team.  When reporting a shop doesn’t work, the obvious next step is calling them out here.
This shop opened in May with Chinese factory assembled jewelry listed as Vintage or Vintage Supply — uh uh, it is new.
I took the trouble to report almost all the fake vintage items on this page, with documenting links to various wholesale merchants using the same photo for each item.  Not convincing to the MIT who seem to think an item being newly manufactured within the last 24 months — but listed as Vintage on Etsy — is not any kind of a contradiction.
Newer listings are still Chinese imports, but are listed as Handmade to order!
Description says “Condition New in box” but it’s listed as handmade to order by epocahermosa:
Actually mass made in a Chinese factory and can be ordered on AliExpress:
Jewelry assembled in Chinese factories but listed as Made To Order by epocahermosa and using stock photos from the manufacturers:
Note the AliExpress necklace has the same key shape dangle on the necklace extension as the ‘made to order’ piece from epocahermosa.
‘Made to order’ owl coin purses, with manufacturer’s hang tag visible in the stock photo.
How can an item made by this seller include no materials, no description of the item (package dimensions are given rather than item measurements) or photos showing the purse in detail?
Same item wholesale:
Same hang tag, and color match of owls with open and closed eyes between epocahermosa and wholesale source.
Another pretense at handmade to order:
Again, no details in the description about the ‘handmade’ item for sale, just some package dimension boilerplate text from the wholesale source.
Here is the same product from a wholesale source:
Wholesale merchant has more photos (including the one in the Etsy listing, and much more product info — such as the bird being a whistle.
One final callout of a listing for factory made jewelry, listed by epocahermosa as ‘handmade to order':
Wholesale using the same photo:
Shop was reported over a month ago now, and is still open.
Edited to add:
Wow! She is also stealing The Black Apple’s Odd Fellow’s Orphanage images for lockets, which The Black Apple sells as limited editions. I own a couple of the real ones.

The fake ones: http://www.etsy.com/listing/102158818/girl-locket-necklace

New shop foreverangelica just opened a few days ago.
Seller is adding a few new reseller jewelry listings each day.  Even the shop’s banner shows a photo of a Chinese factory assembled owl pocket watch pendant necklace, like this one:
Elephant necklace or ring, listed as a “vintage supply”, with a quantity of 40 available!
Elephant ring, new, wholesale:
Elephant necklace, new, wholesale:
Factory assembled new jewelry is neither vintage nor supplies.

Gotta luv the description!
Same octopus necklace, new, wholesale:
New, factory made, elk ring listed as vintage in a quantity of 20:
Same elk ring, new, wholesale:

Same cicada ring, new, wholesale:
New rhinestone owl pendant necklace, listed as vintage in a quantity of 20:

This shop has an item features in the Etsy curated “kids” link on the front page. What idiot looked at these and thought they were handmade? The shoes have different brands printed on them that are clearly visible in the photos.
