    Hi Yall,

    I am a person who always had intrest in selling products. I just love it somehow.
    The part i love the most is having all the products, packing them, shipping them etc.

    Now for this part i have a new idea fully online.

    To start. What i want to do is NOT legal. So my biggest question will be.. Should i or shouldn't i do it.

    I am willing to take a risk but i want opinions if it will be worth the hassle.

    Okay so here the idea.
    I have some good connections in China for a while and i was a mid-ranged buyer a few years ago for some months.
    Now i have some nice products which are ofcourse fakes but 1:1 look-a-likes.
    Just like we all know you can buy fake iphones, fake android phones etc.
    These are the products i do not want to sell.

    What i want to start selling are replicas of products that are lower in price and aren't that big of a difference.
    Think about branded clothes, branded headphones, caps and that kind of stuff.

    My first question here pops up. Should i do this or does is make me a bad person to much ;-)! You know i am asking for opinions here. Call me whatever you like, i need opinions no lies.

    Than second is.

    If i am going to sell them. Would it be a great idea to:
    1. Rank in google with great keywords. Like the productname.com
    2. At productname.com i only sell that product so the focus will be at the right point.
    3. Get traffic by Facebook, ebay and that kind of websites

    The idea behind this is that you create 10 different websites for 10 different products. Or maybe sub-domained ( product.name.com, product2.name.com etc ).

    The reason i am looking for opinions is because of the fact that i sold caps before ( the New Era caps ) and actually got sued by Monster and Red Bull Energy ( the same day.. isn't that a coincidence.. ).

    I am not really afraid of that but i think it would be a very bad combo if you rank in google and get the big companies attentions..

    So a long story short:
    Is it ok to do or am i an asshole first class if i do this.
    Should i be using SEO to burn up sales or keep it on the downlow?

    Hit me up and leave your opinion here.

    Personally, the bit I like best is seeing how much profit I made and my bank balance increasing.

    Depends of where ou live, US might be at too much risk.
    I don't see it as good idea with all the risk involved.
    Now, you like to buy and package and send shit, why don't you get into real products?; Buy them wholesale and sell them with a little or good profit ?

    the problem with your plan is the ranking part. It will bring almost immediatly lights on you, and I would put my hand to the fire that you'll get sued right away; so it's really a loss of time.

    I don't see anyway to scale shit up when you sell fake products. Too much of a hassle & risk.
    Good luck anyway.

    Which is worse?

    You want to know if you should build a business so that when it is successful, someone can take all the profit from you.

    or
    You have to go to a public forum and ask if you should break the law.

    Either way, I suspect your prospects are not very good.

    Cover your butt as not to get sued by the companies whose products your ripping off. Try not to use paypal either to dodge refunds when people realize the merch is fake.

    Hmm,

    Well thank you all for the feedback. I sometimes just need a push in the right direction..

    I think ill pass for this one. Probably will backstab myself with this kind of stuff at one point.
