Well, I would rather not do business with them. Freight-forwarders to dubious countries (Russia, Eastern Europe), they’re OK. Love the freight forwarders. They can use their profits to bribe the customs officials…
But dropshippers, inventory scrapers are another matter entirely. Once upon a time, there was an outfit in Texas, who had the cheek to call themselves ExtremelyReliable. Well, their address (on Abe) was in Texas, but actually the books would be sent to Pennsylvania, which, of course, has no sales tax… You get the idea.
Problem is, this outfit, with its millions of books listed as Brand New, wasn’t ExtremelyReliable and had to change its name.
Errr. What was it?
Er. God. Can’t remember.
Er God e, I forget the name of this BOOK outfit, but they’re still around.
It might have been Ergodebooks, come to think of it. Roughly 8 million books.
These outfits and other ones like them are a stinking pile of crap.
