      Id advise you to do business with people you meet through references. At the very least, you have the referrer to go back to.

      It may also be worthwhile to check out the physical address and location of the drop shipper his factory, officeetc. people running drop shipping scams often insist on meeting in third party places like hotels or restaurants instead of their own offices.

      You could also try and see how long the guy has been in business. It is not possible to start a drop ship business overnight or even in 6-7 months. Only very established players have the resources required to start a drop ship facility.

      I try and call up the Best Business Bureau when taking on a new supplier or partner to check if any complaints have been made against them.
