This seem an interesting way of duplicating products.[em5]Do you have patents?If so, a case can be registered and this culprit may be taken to task.

A serious customer will not ask for a free sample.Either have to pay for the samples or atleast for the shipping which proves the customer asking is in the trade and serious.This does not apply only to Indian customers but to everyone.I have customers asking for free samples which i will say yes to send them but ask them to pay for the shipping or to give their courier details to connect the samples.If they request for free for samples and shipping,i plainly say no.The supplier's investment is the sample and the customer's investment is the shipping cost.This is called the mutual relatonship.

Dear Mash,I am a bit worried about my samples.The Indian customers came to our  factory and we have sent them free samples. I do not know whether they  will make duplicate products. They have returned their country and said they are showing our products to theri customers. So we have to wait patiently.To be honest, I have sent them E-mail nearly one week. However, I got no reply then  I tried to call them but I could not get through. Therefore, I am  much nervous. [em11] Then I succeed contacting them via Trade manager today and they said they forgot to send the reply E-mail.And now , I am stiil waiting. Wish a favorable reply from them!Best Regards!

 it is appear that it is quite common to duplicate copies for clothing  industry. The clients can very easy to copy  our samples by using their own label,hangtag .that the products  are  totally theirs .[em8]For the free samples ,i think i will no longer to send any more .as i have been cheated many times.

i can't agree with you more. The supplier's investment is the sample and the customer's investment is the shipping cost.This is called the mutual relatonship.
