I am a new seller, as I just signed onto this platform as a seller days ago. My very first customer sent me his/her request to have a MS Excel workbook developed for them. The example file they sent me, was for a Real Estate Investment firm. I reviewed the file, and knew that I could make it work for them. I paid more attention to WHO this customer was, than I did with the file. After reading the message from the customer, I noticed a logo, and on their logo was the name of a “supposed” business.
So being the research wiz I am, I decided to go to Google to see if I could find this company name and logo. To much surprise, I found the exact same logo and company. This so called company, which was supposed to be a Real Estate Company, was actually an Ecommerce site selling odds and ends.
So with the thinking cap on, my first assumption I arrived to, was that another seller was posing as a buyer, and they contacted me to do the work, so they in turn could sell to their customer at a higher price.
Why would a Real Estate Investment firm be running an Ecommerce store selling Ali-Express products? Doesn’t make sense, thus the reason for my assumption. Does this exist on this platform? Where a seller can pose as a buyer, only to have you do the work, so they in turn can sell at a higher price?? Thanks for any input.
