Afterword – Wayrates Scam

Wayrates’ product line comes directly from Alibaba and AliExpress. For the American consumers who believe in BBB, this is not an accredited-BBB website. It is nothing more than a Chinese-based online retailer who is utilizing a fake address and phone number.

The address and Shantou Guanghong Trading are not legitimate. A Google search did not render results. Also, the website was registered via a proxy to conceal the responsible party’s identity and location.

Is Wayrates a scam? It is a scam waiting for its first victim.
