1) I got registered at this forum, and i tried offer some help as per the options give to me but in return I got an email from a moderator Garrry Sweetman saying that this is considered as a spam or an advertising post
I replied to them mentioning that they must read the entire article first, and later I requested them to un-register my name and my company name from their site, because i felt somewhat weird kind of approach from that website.
after approximately 12 days I again received an email from the forum saying that i need to pay for advertising if I wanted to keep my account alive with them, however it is very strange that a site which claims to have helped thousands of trader world wide repeatedly ask for advertising fund or fee even if the user/customer does not want to be registered with them any more.
I then started digging more for the sites moderator named Garry Sweetman and found that he runs a site where all 2nd hand stuff is being sold, the guy itself in his photo graph posted on the site looks like street thug, in short he doesn't appear to be looking like a professional from wholesale company. (((link redacted)))
I also found one very interesting fact that members whose opinions are posted and advertised over this forum do not have proper address or website or some information of professional or genuine business setup.
however everything said and done i request all genuine wholesalers to check and verify about this forum and remain away from this forum, there are lots of genuine B2B commercial site in the world who will upfront ask you for their membership with the clear intention and I have also seen that the professional B2B sites or market places have big companies and genuine companies as their members with valid telephone numbers and proper contact detail links.
I would also like to ask http://www.thewholesaleforums.co.uk/blog/about/ to provide their D&B number for their users to verify how genuine this company is.
