Hey all, I was looking at alibaba.com and the prices on there are ridiculous. Are they too good to be true?

Most are. It is difficult to find reliable suppliers, but there are many. The prices are low, but as always "too good to be true"="usually untrue".

Use Ebay rule-of-thumb to avoid being scammed. Note that a number of third party escrow services are scammers as well.
