ERAI CHINA network had strong base of Chinese vendors over 300 who sell counterfeit , pirated, substandard electronic components to their counterparts in America.  In past few years many Chinese vendors from Guiyu, Chaoyang, Shenzhen, Shantao have had opportunity to join premium league of ERAI network managed by Kristal Snider, Mark Snider and Terry Lively. With support of ERAI network, it became easy for chinese to approach their American counterparts to sell their illegal produce which is often less than 1/4 of manufacturer's price.

Kristal Snider and Mark Snider lost no time in networking and connecting their Chinese ERAI members and American ERAI members which bought them escrow fees, visual inspection fees for known counterfeits for mission critical military , space, civil aviation and navy equipments.

2000 Dollar worth Chips started rolling out for 100$ which American ERAI members bought and sold for little  less than franchise price, with the perfect visual certification of ERAI, IDEA, ISO-9001 etc.   Many such merchandise are still waiting in shelves to be replaced once maintenance schedule or fault comes up with present equipment.

The major buyers of ERAI-china  network are American
ERAI members: few names are mentioned from majority of ERAI members who buy from these ERAI CHINA members. eg.

1)  American Electronic Resouces, CA, USA.( buy millions of worth fakes from china)
2)  USBID INC. FL, USA ( buy millions of worth fakes under ERAI, IDEA network)
3)  Global Solutions Electronic company ( noleadtime) , FL ( Proud ERAI member)
4)  V&C Technologies Inc., FL, USA ( Prominent  associate of Kristal and Mark)
5)  Tytronix  ( EPIC International) , MA, USA
6)  Hyper IC Florida, FL, USA ( major buyer of military parts from China)
7)  Vision tech components ( Proud member of ERAI who trade counterfeits)
8)  World Micro Source , CA, USA
9)  CHIP1 xchange , Germany , USA
10) stock-point USA
11) CARLIN SYSTEMS
12) NORTH SHORE COMPONENTS.
13) IDENTEK, CA
14) KIMTRONICS CANADA
15) WORLD EXPRESS ELECTRONICS
16) New Advantage Florida
17) ELECTROSPEC

And 100s of more who are responsible for over 1 billion dollar worth of counterfeit and piracy business in a year. Most parts comes in America by way of smuggling and faked invoices which are prepared by ERAI china office along with escrow documents. None of these vendors have export authorization.

These American companies basically seek protection and do secured transaction with the help  of agencies like ERAI, IDEA, who do visual inspection for known counterfeits, and provide escrow services for financial safety.

Moreover 2/3 of ERAI members in America buy counterfeits all the time which are obviously meant for selling to respective customers in that particular industry and segments. (while 95% Chiense ERAI members sell counterfeits)  Military fakes are meant to be sold to NASA, BAE , PENTAGON.  Recently, USBID, V&C TECHNOLOGIES,AERI, VISION TECH, WORLD EXPRESS, WORLD MICRO SOURCE,TYTRONIX have sold millions of worth counterfeits well documented, but ERAI , IDEA still choose to help them, because they do not want to loose subscription and escrow revenue.

Another domestic scam in America::   Companies like Carlin Systems are involved  in converting commercial parts to military parts merely by performing few basic tests and faking test results to appease their OEMs in case of obsolete parts. There are many more American companies buy commercial parts with the help of Terry lively and Kristal snider , which are being risked with military tests, some of them even pass those basic tests, with these results and test reports such commercial parts are passed on to military OEMs as military parts with 10 fold price..

Now we know how many pentagon equipments, fighter planes, ships and missiles are today laced with counterfeits, faked military parts, which are mostly supplied by ERAI CHINA AND ERAI AMERICAN members.

It is billion dollar industry in which 100s of brokers in China , USA are involved along with Mark snider, Terry lively and Debra of IDEA.

Debra of IDEA helped USBID in rolling millions of worth counterfeits till year 2008, she is still supporting companies like AERI who again buy all their merchandise from China. IDEA-1010 certification of Debra is perfect visual inspection standard to approve improvised , cosmetically refined fakes and counterfeits.

SMJ320C40GFM50   ( ORIGINAL PRICE 1800$ ) is very common military chip, traded among ERAI, IDEA members some of them even manage to label with ISO-9001 certification. Other common faked parts by ERAI affiliated brokers are LH0041CG/883. MC1590G, UA702HMQB, LM759MH/883, JM38510.. series, 5962... series , JAN, JANTX, and other /883 series which are faked on commercial or dummy parts.

Watch out if you buy from ERAI network who merely judge quality with ERAI tag and label. This is the network which is most active in trading counterfeits with ease and comfort of Snider's private certification. It will be no surprise if you get bogus, counterfeit parts with ISO-9001 label, IDEA-1010 certification or ERAI Tag. 

These are just American stunts. Infact it is very likely that if you buy from American independent brokers , you will get Chinese counterfeits packed in American bags with American tags.

China's most counterfeits are fakes are routed all across the globe through ERAI affiliates and American independent brokers.

The days are gone when America used to be on top list of quality suppliers, but today things have changed, merely because brokers here cannot survive with high administration costs, tough competition with Asian companies and with shrinking profits. Only option for them is to become agents of 'Chinese flea markets.' 

Almost every next American independent broker have now turned to "Chinese list broker" status who operate from small shops, basement, backyard or small office with erai affiliation. Don;t get lured by their websites which promises you heaven while selling you trash bought from China period.

Rest -it is better to steer clear from crooks like Kristal snider, Mark Snider , Terry lively who have turned America into counterfeit heaven for electronic components period.

fact: China cannot make  genuine Analog Devices ADC, DAC or Intel CPUs, or TI Digital Signal processors, or ISOLATION Amplifiers, OR military OP-AMPS at fraction of price. How do you think Chinese erai members will supply 1800 $ worth for 100$ while maintaining 100% quality? Now the tangle is between QUALITY, CHEAP PRICE and SURVIVAL of American brokers, We all know which one they will choose to maintain luxurious lifestyle?

KRISTAL SNIDER , TERRY LIVELY, MARK SNIDER ARE SELLING TERROR IN USA AND REST OF WORLD

AUTHOR: Count-inv - (USA)

It is a sad story though, a couple Mark Snider and Kristal W.Snider from plymouth, who were basically selling flowers from their Diane's Duxbury home came into this business starting in a dingy room at 19R Main street Plymouth, MI. Later moved to Florida in 2006.This couple is so greedy they left no table unturned whatever gave them money without doing much work. Kristal Snider started with Nurse work, later shifted to over dozen businesses along with her husband,  right from printing fliers, business cards, selling cargo insurances, web designing, and so on. Basically they had no technical background to be in electronic component industry.
Now coming to her venture ERAI, which is basically a membership organisation of brokers across the world, but its main objective was to help  network American brokers and Chinese brokers where chunk of business comes from.  Brokers not having access to many parts in open market often resorted to Chinese made fake/counterfeit and pirated parts including military and aviation grade parts.  This networking helped her bring millions of dollars in membership. She and her husband also carried out multi million escrow processes between Chinese flea market suppliers and American buyers, knowing that 99% parts sold in open chinese market are pirated and hence counterfeits. She kept on networking counterfeits to boost her revenue, while to attract more and more international members other than china, she harped on her love for anti-counterfeiting theory. She developed few ways to improvise counterfeits which is been taught to Chinese suppliers so that the components do not get intercepted by layman or even border officials.  Thanks to Kristal snider who has made America a biggest buyer of pirated electronic components. America consumes over 75% of pirated components made in China, which no other industrially developed countries like Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, Japan or India would buy. 

 It is often the greed of fat margin of Americans brokers and their lavish lifestyle , encouraged Chinese to produce more and more counterfeits.  Networking power, improvising visual aspects and escrow services by ERAI helped this trade rocket to its peak level.   No wonder there are big brokers who openly bought and./or sold tonnes of counterfeits:   

Few big names are: 
MVP MICRO, 
TYTRONIX, ( EPIC INTERNAIONAL)
USBID, 
V&C TECHNOLOGIES INC, 
AMERICAN ELECTRONIC RESOURCE, 
GLOBAL SOLUTIONS ELECTRONICS ( NOLEADTIME.COM), 
KIMTRONICS, 
CARLIN SYSTEMS
VISIONTECH ( SHANNON WREN),
OXYGEN ELECTRONICS, 
BIGAPPLE, FORESIGHT,
 FOUNDATION TECHNOLOGIES 
HYPER IC FLORIDA ( CHIP ROUX - CLOSE ASSOCIATE OF SNIDER FAMILY)
 and many more.   

Apart from these ,there were nearly 500 known flea market vendors in China, joined ERAI network changed their names after selling counterfeits, came back with different names. ERAI happily entertained them , as long as they got their kickbacks in the form of membership and escrow fees. She conducted many booze parties for brokers to market her membership network.

 Among these many of these companies even used ISO and ANAB certifications besides using networking power of IDEA and ERAI.

No wonder today most American military organizations like NASA, PENTAGON, BAE and other companies including aviation companies are struggling with insurge of pirated components in their equipments.
 
Still if someone wants to trust Kristal Snider, Mark A. snider and her close associate Terry M. lively then it is upto you.    We can judge who are those people working behind the screen to link billion dollar piracy network which operates between China and USA. Many American companies in-turn sell those military counterfeits to other countries with their American lables and American advantages along with ERAI, IDEA tags.  Companies like USBID, V&C Technologies, AERI are still churning millions with the sound support of Kristal snider.

Decide for yourself  who is working behind the show besides greedy brokers. This has become epidemic in last 5 to 6 years. Something which could have been at very minor had ERAI not ventured into this illegal trade to pump out money.   Yes there are major B2B sites like EBAY, THE BROKERFORUM, NETCOMPONENTS, HKINVENTORY.COM who provided platform to market pirated products.

(FYI 90% of ERAI members , associates, affiliates are involved in distribution of pirated/counterfeit commercial and military components)

Request to readers : Call Kristal W.snider, Mark Snider on 239-261-6268 or 239-348-3530 and ask them to stop spreading terror in USA and rest of world.,

ERAI Response

AUTHOR: Kristal Snider, ERAI - (United States of America)

To Whom It May Concern:

For the last several years, ERAI, its principals and employees have been the target of an intense smear campaign orchestrated by an individual who seeks to bring harm to ERAI, its principals, employees and any person or business who interferes with the perpetrators ominous cyber attacks. For a long period of time, ERAI was more or less exclusively the primary target of these libelous broadcasts. Now, numerous businesses are among the victims of these often-times unprovoked outbursts.

ERAI is frequently asked why these posts have been and continue to be made. Simply put, due to the nature of our organization which involves monitoring, investigating, reporting, and mediating issues affecting the global supply chain of electronics, it is not uncommon to have companies that have been reported by ERAI attempt to discredit our organization. The hundreds of posts that are currently visible on the Internet have been made by one individual using dozens of Internet screen names. Because the Internet provides bloggers with a cloak of anonymity, a person can create the illusion of numerous disgruntled or concerned individuals when that is simply not the case. The author of these posts is an individual that was reported by ERAI for selling faulty material. He made numerous threats against ERAI and its employees both during the investigation and after he was reported.

It helps to have a better understanding of our organization in order to understand the motivation of these types of criminals. Founded in 1995 and incorporated in 1996, ERAI is a privately held trade organization that has been the industry's primary reporting and investigation service supplying information, mediation and risk mitigation solutions to electronics professionals worldwide. Membership to ERAI is open to franchised and independent distributors, OEMs, OCMs, CMs, test houses, government agencies and associations serving the industry. ERAI is actively involved in a number of committees and task forces that are addressing the issue of counterfeit parts in the global supply chain of electronics.

There are a number of reasons why counterfeiting has become so rampant in the last few years, such as the breakdown of trade barriers among countries with less restrictive IP laws, the green initiatives that have led to more e-waste and easy access through the Internet to market and sell material easily. Counterfeiting has become a global issue affecting multiple industries from electronics to golf clubs, pharmaceuticals and tobacco, among others. It is particularly troubling to ERAI since counterfeit electronics can not only affect individuals health and safety, but could even be a threat to national security. Every industry has been affected and ERAI is working diligently to address the problem in the electronics sector and to offer solutions to this very serious issue. Unfortunately, we have to accept the fact that the Internet creates an audience for individuals to post information that is entirely false, inaccurate and without merit.

ERAI is uniting the industry in addressing issues that are plaguing the market and we hope you can be part of the solution with us.

ERAI deeply regrets the frustration and/or confusion these cyber attacks have caused. Despite the difficult obstacles ERAI must sometimes face, it will continue to provide the valuable information and services its Members have come to rely upon to make the most informed business decisions possible. ERAI remains committed to serving its customers with the integrity and professionalism the semiconductor industry has come to expect.

Sincerely,
Kristal Snider
