N&K TRADING INC - N&K TRADING INC - Fraud by Importer, Drop Shipper, and many alias dealer

note: This is the same complaint also filed under N & K GROUP LLC (with a few added notes). That one is their official corporate name in NJ records, and this one uses their name as filed in NJ tax registration records. Alibaba lists Mr. Randy Chen as CEO, at Telephone: 0-347-566-1666 That appears to be a NYC based Google Voice number, that he may forward to other personal or office numbers (but preceded by one, not zero, from the USA). There is a state index record of a corporate name change in 2008, but details aren't viewable online.

My purchase of a fraudulent label laptop battery, that was also a minor manufacturing defect, from an Amazon drop ship reseller, led to noticing a company operating with many names itself, plus via third party victim dealers. This complaint lists the official corporate name obtained searching Secretary of State legal records.

Products with a sticker that has "YALL" followed by a number, or sold via TMall.com, are easy to identify as this company. Unfortunately, most people who buy unsafe, defective, or fraudulently labelled items via drop ship sellers will not know this source until they see a shipper address as listed above. Test any products carefully, and file complaints while eBay, Amazon, or charge card fraud protections are still in force, not after noticing products fail early and never performer properly, or had safety issues like examples below.

This company is a classic case of stereotypes against "Chinks" not being bigotry, but sadly, a national norm that harms honest Chinese, when it's common for some of their businesses to consider it normal to sell products with blatant frauds of many forms, and documents that support those frauds as if product specs.

A check of a Pacific Rim escrow trading source, and NJ corporate records, show the real company using many online names of its own, plus drop shipping via TMart.com (its own dba) and a huge range of third party victim dealers on eBay and Amazon:

"NNK Trading Co. Ltd established in November, 2012 in NJ of Unite Stated, is both an international trading corporation which bases its business model on e-commerce platform and an enterprise group engaged in software development services."

Several of their dba aliases do not show up as registered, as required by NJ law, but this does appear to be a NJ corporation that can be prosecuted for criminal and civil fraud by the NJ Attorney General, and subjected to US Customs, FTC (consumer fraud, by mis-labelling, and selling home audio equipment with fraudulent spec's), FCC (for some electronics lacking Part 15 certifications), and other regulatory investigations and penalties.

Note that the terms at the bottom of their www.TMart.com site claim they're not responsible for items that have false spec's. What arrogant lies, as if they import and sell in the US, that's patently not true, and they need help with that lesson.

Their Web site lists a LOT of battery packs claiming 2600 mAH LiIon cells (in series/parallel), that are likely manufacturing reject 4400 mAH cells with more than 10% below that actual capacity. (That's what they shipped me.)

They list a 120 watt USB powered speaker set, noting that USB ports have 2.5 watts available.

They list several home stereo amps, and obviously fake spec's, an area of law with fairly specific legal standards due to historic use of odd condition spec's by US companies that weren't even the kind of outright fictions this company sells.

They list some small harmonicas, that are actually nice (but overpriced) items (of which I've given several from other sources to friends). However, they list them as good for kids, despite small parts that are exactly what triggers CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) mandated recalls. Adults only items, or kids over 5 or 10.

This company is also very sleazy towards its own drop shippers. They contract to not use packaging or invoices that identify their brand, but they insert flyers for TMart into drop shipments for 3rd party sellers.

Also of note, is that their corporate existence dates from 2006, but their Alibaba info states they were new in Fall 2012. This company needs a shitstorm of consumer complaints to state and Federal regulators, and to see major shipments of fraudulently labelled merchandise seized by Customs, plus to face penalties from state and Federal fines and prosecutions.

The main problem for customers is that they use so many names, and act as a drop shipper for even more, that they're hard to identify before making a purchase.

At least now everyone has the real name of the company involved, whose corporate officers can be identified, and for use in any legal actions or complaints with relevant government law enforcement.

Noted on their Import/export site, but not on their US retail one, noting both offer international shipments, is this and similar LASERs:

http://nnktrading.trustpass.alibaba.com/product/135390138-103881597/5W_Mini_Laser_Stage_Lighting_Projector.html

That kind of product is illegal to sell in the USA, Europe, and other places that have LASER safety requirements for labels identifying higher power devices as such, safety interlocks, or licensing of sales and users as competent to not seriously injure someone. It's legal to sell here only with FDA & FCC specified technical and regulatory compliance and functions that unit and others similarly listed clearly do not have.

That makes at least 5 US Federal agencies, plus state prosecutors, who have jurisdiction to teach this company some lessons.

I should have been more clear on battery tech details, rather than try to save words in an already long post.

What I bought was spec'd as 5200 mAH 11.1 VDC. That's a 2 sets in parallel, of 3 cells in series pack, that should have had 2600 mAH individual cells (x6).

What I received (in a chipped pack with sensors read by diagnostic software) said it was designed as a 4400 mAH pack (IOW, 2 sets of 2200 mAH cells in parallel), but was actually only 3900 mAH (11% below that spec, that Sony oem packs generally exceed when new by 5-10% to meet spec's after minor aging). IOW, the individual cells were minor manufacturing rejects, of a capacity 2-3 sizes below what the pack I bought had listed online, and printed on its case, and on the box label. That's not an accident or just poor quality control, but intentional fraud with malice. The TMall (drop shipper dba of N & K) disclaimer about liability for false supplier spec's suggests it's knowing and intentional fraud.

The same site has hundreds of similar battery packs for various laptops, mostly listed as 5200, and some high capacity as 7800 mAH (3 sets of cells in parallel, mostly times 3 in series (10.8 or 11.1 VDC, some 4 in series (14.8 VDC)).

Online consumer reporting sites show other customer problems with battery orders shipped from this same source, suggesting the underlying US importer knowingly buys products that would be perfectly legal to sell were they marked and sold as "4400 mAH" (or "6600 mAH" for high capacity), AND marked as "minor manufacturing defects, near but not at rated capacity". Instead, they perpetrate fraud and sell product as if premium high capacity when it's not.

Other product issues raised I haven't inspected actual product. However, it's obvious noting spec's not possible within laws of physics, or product safety or misrepresentation details governed by US legal standards, to know that other examples cited involve frauds and in some cases serious risks of injury to adults or children.

i too have been ripped off by this company, i live very close to thier warehouse, (a short 30min drive into weston-super-mare) upon reaching the warehouse(Londe), i had a word with the only 2 persons, who could speak poor english, about the batteries that were sent to me for a cq56, the batteries i got were for older type laptops and not the newer models. on their web page they have a huge array of batteries and the two i chose were 593553-001 this is the pt# number on the battery, i had put this number into a search engine and looked for these batteries, amazon looked the best option and i purchased these batteries, however when they arrived i was dissapointed by the item, as they were for a totally different machine, so i hopped in the car, spoke to them face to face, and their reply was `we are sorry but we have no stock of this battery` they had taken the batteries away but never returned them or gave me a reciept. they said they would re-imburse me, i am still waiting, i tried to contact their customer services number and got a message that the number was not recognised i would suggest that anyone who is looking for batteries from this company, look elsewhere THIS IS A RIPOFF COMPANY and should be avoided at all costs i will be reporting to trading standards and uk immigration as i believe their is cause for concern on both fronts a very irate customer.

I Bought An AU Optronics Laptop Screen From N&K Trading Through EBAY, I Received A Cheap Knock Off Screen With No Brand Name On It...........

fae9f9ca, 2014-06-12, 06:51AM CDT

I bought a replacement screen for a Notebook more than 2 months ago through eBay but never received it. They are advertising on eBay with the name Screenaid (screenaid.com). In the resolution they said that they would send it, but nothing happens. I'm trying to get my money back as I paid via PayPal, but everything has to go through eBay's resolution system. BTW, do a Google search on screnaid +scam and you will find more scam reports that you will find more than 87000 hits!!!
