45 ‘Esources.co.uk’ Reviews
Wealth of information and leads
I must admit I was a bit sceptical about joining e-sources but I have found it to have a wealth of information and leads to help get a new business started. This is just what we need as a small business just starting out. So I am very happy. Keep up the good work.
Just awful - avoid
Paid for the database access found no real sources. Website and book promised saw none of that either. Also overcharged and no refund given.
All replies to negative reviews say the same thing- that they are not a customer. Disgusting way to treat people who have paid for a service and been ripped off. And all from a username "truthwins" where's the evidence you are not just the owner/scam artist?
Many of the positive reviews here must be fake. Please see below for real reviews.
http://usacomplaints.com search for esources.
Also do a google search but avoid the websites owned by the same person (wholesale forum, dropship forum, and numerous blogs). Do a whois.sc (domain owner search) and all owned by Stefano Carboni. Reviews on these sites are controlled by him so no negative ones are allowed.
esources is an individually owned business with a PO Box (shell address) in London advertised however invoice has Spanish Ltd company address on invoice.This is also individually owned and only been going for 2 years but esources advertised since 2004.
Stefano Carboni lives in Italy with his girlfriend if anyone is looking to take him to court or prosecute for criminal charges you can find him there. Easy to find the details if you know where to look. He regularly threatens anyone who complains he should be taken to court like the criminal he is. I have invoices and bills to prove I paid esources should stop this scam before they receive jail time.
Google website owners name for honest reviews!
Just google "Stefano Carboni Scam" for additional honest reviews and the past history about the owner, avoid the sponsored websites such as "best rated", "dropship forum", "wholesale forum", "wholesale deals" as are owned by Stefano Carboni (Who is check done) as you will not find independent reviews on these websites.
Hope this helps with your research.
Best in UK for me
Tried all the cheap crap lists, this list is loaded with goodies, what I can’t grasp is how they can give away so much so cheap. Best around for me for finding real sources.
In this short time I have found esources invaluable for both products and suppliers a definite 10/10. The staff have been very quick and helpful, I hope it will continue to prove an asset.
Internet Scammers - Will steal your money
Firstly esources is not a company it is an individual using a fake London address on their website. Once they have your details you will be overcharged and they will refuse to refund you. On top of this their database is old and was stolen from a competitor.
esources.co.uk is a scam website ran by a con artist hiding outside of the UK
Very good resource
Esources has been a great help in giving us the confidence to finally bite the bullet and start trading. The information and help is excellent and something we find ourselves dipping in regularly. All in all a great service. I am pretty sure we will be renewing when the time comes.
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.
