35 ‘Esources.co.uk’ Reviews
Great information and contacts
I am pretty new to online wholesale and was trying to find information to start up my own E-commerce business, which is a minefield of some good some useless information. Trying to find decent trustworthy wholesale outlets on the internet to a newcomer is a daunting aspect and one full of pitfalls and scam merchants. I joined as a premium buyer member and was totally gobsmacked by the information and the contacts provided. I have gained some great sources of wholesale products whom I wish to trade with. I would confidently say that it's down to Esources.co.uk and the information on there that's got me a head start in this game that I so desperately needed. Thank you.
Extremely happy with the results
I am pleased to say that I have found the right wholesalers for my niche products on esources faster than I expected. I am extremely happy with the results and overall effectiveness of the portal. I am sure it is going to be a long association.
To be honest, I have never used a directory this comprehensive before. I was just fortunate to come across it after thorough research and a business recommendation from a coach. Since then I have been telling everyone about it. In short, a great directory!!!
Great value for money
I have found esources incredibly good value for money. I have opened a few trade accounts already and am currently looking into dropshipping options a bit more thoroughly. The directory of traders and dropshippers is impressive too, but i have found the information pages and advice and tips that are provided to help every step of the way the biggest surprise. I still have lots to read from esources but what I have already learnt since joining has been invaluable. I feel so lucky that I discovered esources right at the very beginning of my new venture. thank you :) Im hooked
Extremely useful from my business point of view. The resources are indeed helpful in improving various areas of business. The site is easy to navigate and has improved my sourcing experience. I have spoken to a lot of suppliers from the esources directory and most of them have been very helpful, stock great products and said that they were receiving lots of leads from esources. The customer services are top class too. All in all a great job.
Government auction stefano Carboni Scam
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.
