    UKDropshipGroup.com Scam Dropshipper - Have I been ripped off?

    I just bought a dropshipping package from a site called UKDropshipGroup.com. Before I signed up it sounded legitimate and that I could make a profit, but now I have to pay another fee. Have I been ripped off?

    I am sorry to inform you that you are yet another victim of the uk dropship group scam. UKDropshipGroup.com is part of a network of scam dropshipping websites, including a forum and a few blogs, set up to publish fake reviews about middlemen dropshipping websites. The scheme starts by pretending to help people who are starting out, and who are therefore more susceptible to marketing messages. They then rob you of your money making you think you are buying an opportunity, when in reality the opportunity is only theirs to take your money. An orchestrated rip off.

    The scam begins by asking you to pay a small fee, usually in the range of 15-30 for a website. What they don't tell you is that you have to pay more money for hosting and a domain name, which quickly adds up to almost 100... You then suddenly realise that the prices you were shown before sign up are fake, and that products are priced a LOT higher and WELL ABOVE eBay and online RETAIL prices! Yes, you read correctly. There are many people who have fallen for this scam, you won't find a single success story and the majority of the people who fall victim never even manage to sell a single product. The prices are simply way too high. On top of all this, you are asked to pay large hidden hosting fees for websites with a terrible design and that nowadays you can obtain for free and with much better appearance. You don't find out about all this mess until you have submitted your first payment and an agreement form.

    If you are on a self destruction streak and willing to pay the second larger fee, beware that you will be signing up to a recurrent contract which you will be legally bound to pay for the full year. You will also only get products that are marked up so high you would be lucky to make a single sale. There are thousands of people who have been ripped off by this scam, mainly because the same company owns its own forum and blogs. They start by giving what appears to be good advice, then as soon as you learn a thing or two about selling you will quickly realise how they have scammed you.

    Probably not. UKDropShipgroup.com owns a forum and a few blogs where they actively promote their schemes to trap as many newbies as possible. The site creates fake users and posts fake positive feedback about itself, therefore be very careful what you read. You will not find any negative comments on their forum and blogs because they are actively deleted by the site administrator. There are also websites that UKDropShipgroup will direct you to in order to get products, such as Arb-wholesale.co.uk, which also has hundreds of complaints online.

    I understand why you thought it was a good idea at the time, but believe me do not use this or any other sites UKDropShipgroup.com recommends. They aren't just a middleman, they are a middleman's middleman. Basically they are not a dropshipper, they use a company that uses a dropshipper, and at each stage they are taking away your profits by charging you VERY high product prices, and on top of that they add joining fees and hosting fees and domain name fees etc etc etc.

    Do not believe any of the price lists you receive from them, the prices are all fake or for products that have not been in stock for months and never will be. Have a read at the following links for additional information on what you have gotten yourself into:

    I am in the process of looking for a dropshipping website and almost used UKDropShipgroup.com. Now that I am on the hunt again, how can I make sure other dropshipping websites aren’t going to scam me?

    Most of the time, if you have to pay for dropshipping on a website, you are being scammed. It should not cost anything for a site to dropship for you, unless that site is a middleman. In that case, the site hides prices from you on purpose, sends you a fake price list, or is going to mark up prices on products at the last minute.

    Here are some ways you can check if a dropshipping website is legitimate:

    ● Ask for full price lists. Make sure you are satisfied with the profit margins. Make sure the products are in stock, and not just in the price list to persuade you to part from your money.
    ● If the site promises something that is too good to be true or that you only have to pay a one time fee, stay away.
    ● Do extensive research about the website on sites other than ones related to it.

    Hi Quest,

    Welcome to Dropship Forum

    Sorry to read you are the nth victim, the only way to stop them is to post your experience on as many forums as you can find.

    The fraudsters behind ukdropshipgroup are very clever, they know exactly what start ups are looking for, and fool them with all sorts of fake claims. You don't need to throw your money away to learn the lesson, just read online reviews about ukdropshipgroup (excluding the ones on their uk dropship forums of course) and you will quickly understand why all their self made hype is worth observing, but never signing up to. There is a very revealing review at:

    1. Ukdropshipgroup scam creates smear campaigns against websites that have exposed them
    2. Why Ukdropshipgroup has created fake blogs and forums

    I used this. They set up the website but the prices are terrible. You will be lucky if you sold couple items every few months. I had to advertise the website, which took more time and money, and no way justifies paying. Overall I am down over $450... Not a business.

    PS. ukdropshipgroup fixes prices, there is no way to change prices so I was stuck with the prices way above msrp. This system might have worked back in the days but today it's a dead horse and completely surpassed.
