From the inbox:
I have flagged/reported this shop to Etsy for a few days now and haven’t seen anything done about it! The seller is selling mass produced products and claims to be handmade:
Here are a few links to some sellers over at TaoBao that are selling the same items:
There are at least two shops on Taobao that sell the very same brand items:
<a href="http://maomaobag.mall.taobao.com/ http://shop33047493.taobao.com/”>http://maomaobag.mall.taobao.com/
The first shop states themselves as the manufacturer of this line of items and their company name is 聊城市猫猫包袋有限公司, and here is a company profile page:
They currently have more than 40 employees and two offices at two different provinces in China. And this seller on Etsy is located in Canada. Reseller or not, this shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/SilviStore clearly violates Etsy Do’s and Don’ts rules!!
With more and more of these fraud sellers appearing on Etsy, I really would like to see something done to prove that Etsy cares for its image and does not encourage this type of fraud!
