ERAI, lied on a report....see there where 2 brokers. one, me in CA, the other in FL. In approx march of 2006, they ordered 1k pcs of a part, and 50 days later say, wow, our custoer really liked your parts, do you have any more?

We stated we have a reel of 850 pcs. NOW LISTEN, the parts of 2nd shipment, where shipped from CA on Wed FEDEXP!COD, they arrived on a Thursday in Florida before 10:30a.m.....We get a call stating, "the parts are bad!", (and they stopped the check of 850 (2nd shipment) I stated "how can they be bad if they are still in your warehouse?"

the salesperson fumbled and jumbled and then stated oooohhhh, ooohhh, it was the 1st 1k, I state, " you said your customer 'loved' them and now those are bad from 50 days ago....."I DEMAND YOU SEND THE 850 BACK"
IMMEDIATELY." He stated "no, my customer needs them"!!!
I said you can't keep them and then "not pay" he therefore sent a second check "so called good"

I've been in sales far too long, since 74 in components,I know "bottomfeeders' when they start crying...i have an internal way of marking parts and when pictures went into "ERAI", my mark wasn't there, and I quit ERAI 2-3 yrs ago, because they are nothing but a collection agency...they have not one attorney working in the office.....EVEN THOUGH MY PARTS SHOWED THAT I WAS RIGHT IN THE PICTURES SENT TO ERAI, ERAI STOOD FOR THE MEMBER IN FLORIDA, RIGHT NOW I'VE BEEN GOING THRU HELL BECAUSE ERAI DIDN'T TELL THE TRUTH.

ERAI hurt my financially, professionally, this was the 1st report in the industry we've ever had. I want to help in all ways all shapes and forms because i'm fighting big time w/attorney's in Florida for my "honesty"....I pray on my hands and knees we still have honest people out there.

I think we should go after ERAI in "ALL WAYS", DEFLAMATION, LYING, ETC, ETC, ETC,..I CAN GO ON AND ON, AND I HOPE ALL OF US DO THAT HAS ANY PROBLEMS LIKE THIS WITH ERAI..THEY ARE NOT GOD, LET ME TELL YOU.....FAR FROM IT.!!
THERE'S MANY LINES THEY'VE CROSSED STATEWIDE AND OVERSEAS.....AND THEY DESERVE IT!

KRISTAL SNIDER, MARK SNIDER , TERRY LIVELY 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 chinesemarket 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)
COREL IBERICA
TECHNOLOGY TRADING CALIFORNIA
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.   
part 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

Illegal North American trade networks promoting international Counterfeit trade

AUTHOR: JANOS - (U.S.A.)

Off late many American companies are now involved with trading counterfeits, pirated & fake goods for achieving higher profits, with no concern for quality or copy right acts.

Most of these transnactions are carried out through corrupt trade networks like ERAI (Electronic Retailers Association , international) , The Brokerforum etc.


Millions of Dollar counterefeits are traded through these networks every week.

Even payment facilities, escrow( Mostly under invoiced deals), visual inspection services are provided for these counterfeits to avoid interruption at various border controls and to please end users so that cosmetic quality norms do not become a reason for getting those parts trapped .

These trade networks provide value added services (mostly external parameters & visual inspection) so that even even most professional services cannot detect these counterfeits when it changes various hands right from shipper , CBP, other officials, ISO and OEMs in initial investigation and detection.

All these deals are performed in very professional and white collared way, while dealing with illegal products.

Had these trade networks refrained from supporting global counterfeit trade, world wouldn't have faced epedemic of counterfeits in every part of our life.
Main culprits are these north American trade networks who are responsible for promoting this illegal network of counterfeiting.

GLOBAL SOLUTIONS ELECTRONIC COMPANY FORT MYER , FLORIDA

AUTHOR: Iscs - (China, People's Republic of)

Interestingly Global solutions Electronic company is still buying counterfeits from known criminals in China. what makes ceo of this company to buy from china again and again when everybody here know chinese sell only counterfeits.

Inspite of knowing the risk of buying from known criminals of china, global solutions chose to buy counterfeits, it is not once, they buy everytime being ERAI member and blessed with ERAI profound support. Global solutions feel that by reporting issues to ERAI will solve counterfeit menace, at the time when ERAI has many criminals on their roll. While doing this Global forgot that they are doing crime by bringing in counterfeit and supporting counterfeit traffic.

We still wonder why Mark Snider, Kristal Snider of ERAI still support this kind of traffic, promoting all sort of criminal elements in China as well as rest of world who bombard counterfeits on whole planet- is it real global solutions for us to be penetrated by counterfeits in our lives?

Would love to hear from more people about ERAI SCAM and counterfeits in USA and the brokers who deal in counterfeits who are members of ERAI. It is time we report counterfeits and counterfeit retailers to authorities to start with USA, then to just report in ERAI vague weekly broadcast which has no impact specially when ERAI had/had few hundered known counterfeit criminals on their board and network of selling.
