How can I determine if a China supplier actually exists?

Posted: 2011-11-18

Full Question

I need your help with the following supplier:

Name: XIAMEN XXXX SOURCE TRADING CO, LTD.
Address: UNIT X, LEVEL X, XXXXXXXXXX XIAMEN, FUJIAN, 36100 CHINA. TEL-86-592-51XXXX, FAX- 86-592-51XXXX.

Please verify and know whether this company is existing at all.

Also get us their E-mail address and Mobile number of the contact person. We tried to reach them but they cannot speak English.

Answer

Per your request, I did some research online in English and Chinese and found that the website mentioned is no longer functional for this company and their parent company in HK is also not active online.

May I ask the reason for your interest in contacting this company?

Perhaps you are interested in getting a quote. Normally, if a supplier is hard to get a hold of to communicate during the RFQ phase, this is a very big red flag as most likely they will not be responsive with your production order either.
