Interestingly USBID and IDEA share same management. President or director of both companies are same. Please note that USBID is one of biggest trader of Chinese counterfeits in USA. This company brings in many Chinese counterfeit parts which are tested , relabelled and sold across the world with ISO-9001 certification.

IDEA being part of USBID's operation support business of USBID. My company reported few critical counterfeit parts supplied by USBID to IDEA. But manager of IDEA said , if they act against them, she might loose job. Upon more investigation I found both are same company. So who you are going to report them.

IDEA is formulating certain standards to fight counterfeits, but certainly they are not meant for USBID and its associated companies. I wonder if IDEA will be successful in their venture with these double standards !!!.
Are they really helping the industry or just that they are trying to find good working, functional parts out of counterfeits for USBID, so that they don;t get burned by their suppliers ( please note improvised counterfeits do work but they are pirated or fradulent or substandard).

Beware of USBID-IDEA VENTURE who are biggest smuggler of counterfeits/pirated goods into America and which are inturn sold across the globe.

USBID is listing 1000s of counterfeits on its website icphotos.org, which is being promoted by IDEA.

they also go by following name:

IC-TOWN.COM
FINDICNOW.COM
KWIKCHIPS.COM
NOWCOMPONENTS.COM
WBPARTS.COM
IDOFEA.ORG
ICPHOTOS.ORG

Beware if you buy from these companies you have more chances that you might get Chiense counterfeits packed with american label and ISO-9001 certification coupled with support of their own self floated private certification of IDEA - IDEA-1010.

They are all bogus, illegal , smugglers, soon will be in the eyes of authorities.
They are giant company , with illegal business network, who think they can threaten anyone if any one question them.

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.,
