        how do you know if the person is a scammer?

        1. Alibaba has a dispute and refund policy so it’s safe.

          A buyer can open a dispute after making payment and before confirming delivery of their order if:

          · The goods are not received before the shipping deadline

          · The goods are not received in satisfactory condition
