Esources and Wholesale Deals SCAM websites
Wholesale Deals claims to be the UK’s most popular wholesale and dropshipping sourcing service, however this could not be further from the truth. In fact it is a scam and a very elaborate one at that. The man behind it all is call Mr Stefano Carboni and he and his accomplices have swindled thousands of pounds from hard working people taken in by his antics, So, how do we know it is a scam? Well you have to dig a little deeper than the first page of google. Let me explain.
Wholesale deals is part of a large network of websites which the aim of charging potential buyers for the privilege of finding suppliers and products to sell online. The problem is that these suppliers or products do not either exist or if they do the prices are so high you could never sell them on!
If you type into google “wholesaledeals.co.uk scam” you are met with a list of entries on the first page, one being wholesaledeals themselves. The other websites which show up are
All the above websites have glowing references and reviews about how great wholesale deals is, however the problem is, all these websites are either owned by or created by Stefano Carboni in order to further his scam. Take Wholesaleforum (.com) for example, this looks like a fairly busy forum with a good number of members but be careful. This forum is online for one reason only and that is to funnel traffic to wholesale deals and the esources scam and his other money making machines. If you signed up for an account on wholesale forum and tried to post a new thread this would be held for moderation. Not too unusual as you have just opened an account and some forums have strict controls in place for spammers but the problem is, no matter how many posts you attempt they will never see the light of day.
Around 99% of the articles on this forum are fake users created in the mind of Stefano Carboni and his band of merry men. You just have to look at the thread about wholesale deals to see how uniformed the usernames and responses are. Look through the forums as a whole and every single post even by different users are formatted exactly the same. This would never happen in a open forum. Take a look at the latest posts, the only ones are from the mods replying to 3 or 4 year old threads to give the forum a slight look of activity. The mind boggles at how far he will go to keep the illusion alive.
Move onto dropshipforum (.com) and the story is the same with the same format of responses however this has not been updated since 2013 so it appears he has given up on this side of it
Now lets look at the blogspot websites, both of above provide long, glowing references in the same tones as the forums, These imaginary reviewers must really have a good imagination, Long story short, these reviews are 100% fake, false and blatant lies.
If you take a look at the scambook.com entry you will see a real review. The response? Stefano Carboni called him a liar, points out reviews of both wholesale deals and esources on HIS forums to try and prove that this review was fake. He even thanks him for his “fake review”
If you continue to dig you will see that each time he finds a negative review he responds by referring to his own site reviews as his proof of legitimacy of his businesses. He has even gone as far as starting smear campaigns against other legit businesses who have dared to speak up against him.
Unfortunately, his campaigns do not stop here. There is more. On a website called selfgrowth.com he poses as a blogger called brad smith. Now if brad smith had written one article about he had nothing but good experiences with wholesale deals then this would not cause many suspicions. But when you dig deeper, our friend brad smith has written not one but 16 different articles defending not only wholesale deals but also esources and as we know from earlier stefano carboni owns both websites. Not only does brad smith defend them but goes as far as stating that everything ever written which is negative about these websites is false. The funny part is that there are replies from people who are not taken in by this who basically call out Carboni and surprise surprise there are no replies from him
Even sites such as trust pilot are not to be trusted as he posts fake reviews on there and campaigns to have real reviews removed. Around 6 months ago there were at least 20 negative reviews on trust pilot but today there are none and all the current reviews have been posted in the last few months.
Many have tried to get their money back through County Court Judgements, however the address he uses is simply a home of PO boxes (27 old Gloucester Road, London) and he has even been known to claim that he will not pay any judgements as his business is registered in Italy and not the United Kingdom. This is something else he falsely advertises. In connection with his Italian link, he also has some Italian websites which are sure to be just the same scam in another place.
Just how far this man will go to keep up the illusion that wholesale deals and esources is legitimate is quite staggering.
Do a search for "governement auction stefano carboni scam" for the truth and how it all begin....
Absolutely excellent stuff. I more or less found what I was looking for within 3 days of signing for the premium membership and am looking forward to getting lots more excellent deals.
I have been able to secure several good contacts that have been able to provide new and profitable products to help accelerate my business. very pleasant experience.
In their response to Wendy Smith on August 10, 2012 Esources representative wrote: 'All subscriptions can be cancelled at any time.' I read the numerous pages comprising the terms and conditions of using www.esources.co.uk and there is not one word about their cancellation policy. I can gladly back up every single person who stated that they never received a refund, because it has just happened to me.
Labelling every negative review posted a fake is unbelievable! Esources must be the ONLY perfect company in the world. How proposterous!
Looking forward to their reply re. cancellation policy as per Distance Selling Regulations. Not a general answer, but specific to the question. Step by step: how to cancel subscription.
I posted this as a comment to the above mentioned post, but thought I'd post it independently, to make it more obvious and aid others in dealing with this website.
Best for me.
Having recieved the whole package, I can truly say that it is worth the money. It is hard to see how any one could fail to succeed if they follow your methods.
The site promises more than it delivers, many of the links are outdated now in than the companies have evolved onto other business models.. Some of the links were useful (very few though) but beware of shady business practices on their side.
The real problem is that they take money without notice and will not answer emails.
If someone from esources is reading this, a reply to my emails would be nice. Username andychad.
I found their services invaluable and the free site is great. Many good leads and serious potential partners located. Easy to search and find what is needed.
eSources - A must have!
I would recommend esources to anyone. A must have for any business. Caliber of the wholesalers and drop shippers is outstanding. Will be growing much quicker. Love the information and the courses.
esources scam website
Stefano Carboni, search for this name on google, the biggest internet scammer, owns multiple false forums and employs cheap Indian bloggers to give false positive reviews about his scam websites esources, wholesale deals, wholesaleforum, dropshipforum, etc
no respectable independent websites and forums will allow these scam websites to advertise or be members of the forums due to the massive frauds they commit
Great List of Suppliers
eSources has allowed me to see a list of suppliers which is relevant to my business, it has been a great value to me. It is the number one contact for anyone in ecommerce.
I have found eSources very easy to navigate and find the relevant suppliers quickly and easily. It is a good service on offer and I am glad I stumbled upon it.
Absolutely excellent stuff. I more or less found what I was looking for within 3 days of signing for the premium membership and am looking forward to getting lots more excellent deals...
bad customer service
Signed up for a year and after checking out the site realised it was a waste of money and asked for a refund straight away. Sent numerous emails with no response whatsoever, funny how they are able to reply to these posts though. terrible customer service and obviously only care about money. Would not recommend
Scammed me of all of my money. STAY AWAY.
