China's Alibaba worried about Yahoo bid?

Discussion in 'Yahoo' started by usasportstraining, Feb 18, 2008.

    I didn't know that Yahoo owned part of Alibaba. I wonder if Baidu (huge Chines search engine) would consider buying Yahoo.

    It was Alibaba and 40 thieves...But now, Alibaba is so big, it should be Alibaba and the 40 millions thieves.
    Since I got scammed on Alibaba, 2-3 years ago, I have contacted more than 1000 "companies" so far. Not one was legit...Not one...

    Alibaba might suffer because the MS-Yahoo merger will go through.

    Alibaba.com is one of the best internet company in China, who owns Taobao.com(No 1 C2C platform in China, also beats ebay.com in China), alipay.com(China paypal), alimama.com(China adbrite), alisoft.com, yahoo China(the worst property) etc.

    Ma yun, CEO of alibaba.com, is the hero of internet in China.

    I bought materials for about $1,100 and got nothing. But it's my bad. I should have made my homeworks better than that. Fortunately, my $1,100 was a first payment.
    In Alibaba.com, you can check for a bunch of unaccuracy: Fake websites, payment to Indonesia while the 'Company' is in Vietnam, Chinese scammers, etc...etc...
    I personally will never buy anymore without to take a flight ticket and get to see physically the premises AND will not pay BEFORE to receive any goods...
    S, my game was to make orders to companies listed on Alibaba.com and see how these companies will scam you. So far I have check more than 1000 companies, and all of them are bogus...
    Oh...another thing...few years back, I use to put the 'Company' name on the forum on Alibaba.com for others to know. But at one point, they were deleted by mods, to make sure that nobody can show how scamming was the site. So I don't post anymore unfortunately....

    I just cannot understand how Alibaba and Tradekey survive with all the scammers on them and also how the legit companies get trade amongs all the scammers.
    Maybe its all the money from the scammers paying $5000 year for gold memberships??

    Alibaba seems like it would be a good resource for products.

    Why not to try? Why don't you get involved and send $1,000 for the products? You may begin an ebay store or something...Really nice...
    I can get you several "factories" in Asia. All you have to do is to send them few grands to get their " products"...

    I don't think US legislators will allow Yahoo to be taken over by a Chinese company, Yahoo is too strategic an Internet assets to be controlled by foreigners.
