First let me say that I am quite proud of how the Alverno College Library website described our site as being - "It's a no-frills site with plenty of solid, practical information."
If you are seeking international business to business marketing resources and no-nonsense answers to your questions, then you have found a great resource and you should bookmark the site now so you may visit often.

It can be very costly to you personally and/or your business when considering doing business with individuals or businesses, whether you find them on the Internet or in your home town. This is written from 28+ years of experience.

Listed in The International Who's Who of Entrepreneurs (1998 edition).
You can look on page 166 in the best selling book "The Best Homebased Businesses of the 90's" by Paul and Sara Edwards where we are listed as a resource for international trade.
Dan Kennedy's book "How To Make Millions With Your Ideas" also features our business on page 209 as a business resource.
March 1994 issue of Income Opportunities magazine you will find a full-length article about our business.
A short write up in the June 1997 issue of Entrepreneur magazine.
Our business - Coble International - is given as a Resource on Page 45 of an article titled "TEN BEST-BET Businesses for the 1990s" as written by Paul and Sarah Edwards and published in the July 1992 edition of Home Office Computing.
Our web site has "many" online references (links) to us that I am very proud of, but several of them are especially impressive (at least to me) - here they are - just click on the name and you may have to search on the page a bit to find us (NOTE: some are listed under our ExportImportHelp.com domain):
Alverno College Library - Milwaukee WI - they have us listed under the Small Business sub-heading with the description we are quite proud of: "Here you'll find links to international trade sites; guides to importing and exporting; frequently asked questions about importing and exporting; and a list of incoterms (terms used in international trade). It's a no-frills site with plenty of solid, practical information."
Entrepreneur Magazine's Website - in a March 24th, 2006 article titled "Selling Your Inventory Online" they reference ImportExportHelp.com in the 5th paragraph of the article and again in an article on August 31st, 2005 in an article titled "Become a Product-Sourcing Pro" in the 7th paragraph of the article they reference ImportExportHelp.com once again.

Definition of Due Diligence: The process of investigation, performed by investors (or in this case by consumers), into the details of a potential investment (purchase), such as an examination of operations and management and the verification of material facts.
Bookmark this page now so you may easily continue to avail yourself of all B2B research tools detailed below. It cannot be emphasized enough how IMPORTANT it is for you to perform DUE DILIGENCE both in your international business and in your personal affairs.
Our business has experienced
fraudulent orders amounting to
over $1,000,000 since 2001
However, through the consistent performance of due diligence on "every" order received, no matter the size, using a variety of security measures have prevented us from losing any revenue.
To help you get started, most of the same due diligence resources we employ each day are listed and explained in detail below.
Every Business Or Individual you are considering doing business with -
whether that business is online or offline
To help you "check us out" or any other business or person you are considering doing business with, you now have access (via this web page) to some of the most powerful due diligence research resources available. The investigative resources listed below are the same that we use daily and represent research compiled from years of experience in dealing with international businesses and business people.
These due diligence resources listed below are FREE and they are not associated with our business, we do not own stock in any of the companies, nor do we collect any sort of advertising fee for providing the recommendation. The investigative suggestions provided with these resources are extremely valuable for both your domestic and international business dealings.
You may wish to begin using the resources on this page now by checking out our business, Coble International and the owner, Ron Coble (me). You may consider this page and the resources listed here to be a valuable (and free) first lesson in doing business, whether internationally or domestically and whether online or offline.
Here is the list of due diligence research tools that are invaluable to our business - be sure to use them (and bookmark them) starting today:
1. Perform a Reverse Check on the company's or individual's telephone number. The purpose of this is to learn if they have been at a location long enough to show up in a telephone directory. Go to: http://www.google.com - type in the phone number you are inquiring about and google will produce all the results they have on file and if the number is listed in a main phone directory, it will be listed at the top under the title "Phonebook Results". (NOTE: this will not give you any details for an "unlisted" number and any business having an "unlisted number" should be a first caution flag for you to consider - if they want to do business with you then they should have a phone number that is 'public' and not hidden from the public).
There are other web sites providing this service also, just do a search in any major search engine for the terms "reverse lookup" or "reverse telephone lookup" (use the quotation marks to narrow your search), many will charge you a fee to learn more details, most of which can be found through a Google search..
Go ahead now and visit Google.com and enter our telephone number in the search box like this "717-467-1835" and see what you get. UPDATE: Due to hearing loss I now list a voicemail number that prints out the voice message and sends it to me as an email - using the phone number as a verification parameter is no longer as reliable with the advent of mobile phones. However, in the case of a business presenting themselves as a "large" business whether they are a potential supplier or buyer, they should have a phone number that comes up along with a physical address - Google knows all and sees all - use it!
2. Search for the "Quality" of the web sites that "link" to the site you are thinking about doing business with. Most reputable businesses and government organizations are "very" careful about who or what they list on their web sites as a resource.
One thing you will not find with most (if not all) of our "competitor" web sites are links from what are considered "Highly" reputable or "authority" sites.
Those links are listed closer to the top of this page under the "More References" section.
3. How long has their website been registered? Our first website was CobleIntL.com in 22 Dec 1997, our second was ImportExportHelp.com in 15 Nov 1999 and our third was ExportImportHelp.com also originally registered on 15 Nov 1999.
You can check this information or that of another web site by visiting http://www.whois.sc and typing in our domain names as shown in this paragraph. You do not need to type in the "www." - once the information comes up, scroll until you see the "Creation Date" - this is the date the web site was first registered.
This is a valuable tool to use in learning how long a business has been on the Internet. WORDS OF CAUTION - it is now possible to register a web site domain name and keep the registration private - this is another cautionary flag you should use in making a judgment call on whether to do business with them or not. Some of the information listed in the registration might also be inaccurate, so be sure to cross reference what you have been given with what is showing on the domain registration information.
An alternative to the whois.sc web site referred to above is Godaddy.com - their search box is located about the middle of the screen with a drop down arrow showing the various .name options.
VERY IMPORTANT NEW POINT: A recent article about online fraud advised the same information given above but with one other item you should also consider. The article stated that most fraudulent operations have no intention of being in operation for very long - so they only register their domain names for the shortest period possible, usually one year. Example: ImportExportHelp.com expiration date is 15 November 2017 - (Personally, I am very cautious of any web site domain name that shows a very recent registration date consider this to be another flag meaning it needs to be investigated even more thoroughly).
LAST: Below is a link to a website that archives ALL websites and if a website is less than TWO years old, it most likely will not show up in their archives. Here is a link to this service so you may view the archives they have on our site starting in 2000 (their service lags by about 6 months from when a website is posted to the net) - http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.importexporthelp.com
4. If they have a website - research how many times their domain name shows up in the major search engines.
Go to Google.com and put the following search term in the search area: "importexporthelp.com" - be sure to use the quotation marks. The number of pages in the Google index will fluctuate, however if they have been online for any amount of time, the number of times they show up in Google is a good indication of how long they have had an actively promoted web site. Remember this little research technique, if you remember nothing else, it is one of the best ways to check out the "legitimacy" and "longevity" of a web site.
ANOTHER VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Anyone in the world can register a domain name for as little as $2.99 a year and have their email routed through it making it look more legitimate.
Some rip off artists set up a website for email purposes only. They know that having an email address with 'what looks like' a legitimate web site address helps them to gain your confidence. So you should 'always' visit the web site used in the email address to see if there is anything there other than a Under Construction page or just a nearly blank page.
Once they have done all their scamming or spamming with that URL (URL is the website name or the .com; .net; .org; .us; .biz example: www.name.com), they simply register another one and let the previous one expire at the end of year registration period and disappear back under the rock from which they came.
Look for and deal with web sites that have 'longevity' but you should still perform your other 'due diligence' checks because old domain names that have been registered for years can be purchased by anyone if the present owner fails or forgets to renew their registration.
5. Do they give you a telephone number where you can call them? If so, pick up the telephone and call them, but realize that today's technology can forward a call to any location without you (the caller) realizing it.
As we stated above, you should feel free to call us anytime, however, if you are located outside the USA or Canada, use the contact form because of time differences and for clarity of your message due to my hearing loss. Here again is our telephone number as it is shown on all of our web site pages: 717-467-1835.
6. Check the Better Business Bureau. If you have questions about my company, check us out with the Better Business Bureau. Although we are not members, we have a spotless record. Go to the BBB site now and check for yourself: Eastern Pennsylvania Better Business Bureau
If the business you are considering doing business with has been around for any length of time, the BBB will have some sort of record on them, so check them out. If there is no record, then you have to consider they probably have not been in business very long.
7. Search for the owner's name on the major Search Engines. Be sure to enclose their name in quotation marks, i.e., "Ronald Coble" or common nicknames like "Ron Coble". Yes, you will find other Ron Coble's, in fact I believe on is a congressman or something, but you will find many that are related to me.
The quotation marks will help focus your search. When using the Google search engine you should search their general search engine listings first and then also click on the Groups option which is one of the links above where you type in your search information request.
This type of search, especially on the Google Groups will sometimes turn up some very revealing information if someone or a business has been dishonest or has ripped off customers in the past. Access to this type of information is one of the great things about the Internet, it allows you to perform verification and research on just about any individual or business for free.
8. Check out their bank references. **Note: This one is reserved for larger transactions - a web site owner is probably not going to give you this kind of information if all you are doing is making a couple of hundred dollar purchase.
However, if you are going to be doing an import or export deal for a large amount of money, be sure to get their bank information and ask the business owner or party with whom you are dealing if they mind if you call the bank to verify they have an account there.
If they are reluctant to give you even the most basic of information like the banks name and the branch where they do their business - STOP and do not move forward until you have completely verified their legitimacy.
If they give you a bank and branch name, then cross reference the information they give you by first running a check on the Internet.
If you cannot locate their bank on the Internet through a Google or Yahoo search, there is a good possibility you are being set up to be scammed.
If you locate their bank information, call the bank, identify yourself and tell them why you are calling which is basically that you are negotiating with the name of the person you are contemplating doing business with and that they have advised you they do their business banking with their branch.
Advise them that "all" you are trying to do is verify that this person and/or their business is indeed a customer of their bank. They may ask you to fax some of the details of your proposed transaction and correspondence on your letterhead or that of your prospective buyer/seller due to privacy laws.
The unfortunate thing in the world today is that the fraudsters outnumber the honest business people and unlike the "innocent until proven guilty" premise followed in USA law, "fraudster until proven legitimate" is the rule of the day.
I write from experience having had well over $1,000,000 in fraudulent orders 2001 thru 2009. Although we have reduced the ratio of fraud orders to 5:1 from 10 to one, the fraudsters are still out there and increasing exponentially. BEWARE.
9. RIPOFF REPORT - Before you spend any money with a business you found on the Internet or from which you received information through the mail, visit: http://www.ripoffreport.com - be sure to use their web site search engine.
Type in or copy and paste the company's name and/or the owner's last name and/or their telephone number and/or their web site address (hint: all you need is the web-site.com name (or .net, .org, .us, etc.) - you do not need the entire http or www stuff). See if anything comes up.
Searching for just part of the company name and/or all of it, don't think by searching just one or two ways that you have covered all the bases, you must use a variety of different combinations and/or reference points to find anything that may be posted.
SPECIAL NOTE: If you are unwilling to perform the little amount of research suggested to you here, you better forget about going into business for yourself, especially the import export business. Quite frankly, if you do not perform due diligence on who or where you send your money, you are a mark looking for a rip off artist. If that offends you, so be it, but if it does it might just save you some of your hard earned money.
10. Access to the owner or proprietor of the business or web site. When evaluating who you can trust doing business with (especially on the Internet) ask yourself how easy has the owner(s) of the web site made it to contact them? The more difficult it is to contact them, the more suspicious you should be of doing business with them.
11. GOOGLE.com is the BEST FREE resource to help you locate information, both good and bad, on someone or on a business. Get acquainted with Google's "advanced" search option. You can also use the advanced option to show 100 results at one time which makes it easier for you to scan over the results you find.
You can also use Google's advance search techniques with multiple data items so you could put in a business name in quotes followed by and with the city name in quotes, like this: "Coble International" and "Dover" and it would bring up all the results google has with our business name and the city of Dover on that results page. Very powerful targeted way to search and find good and/or bad stuff on someone or a business.
Now that you know 'practically' everything there is to know about Coble International, we hope you will see the value of doing business with a business that has been around since 1988. A business whose owner values our reputation and appreciates your visit with us and who hopes you will visit on a regular basis.
Take care and we wish you the best of health and success.
Ron Coble - Owner
Here is a "small" sample of the testimonials regarding our products, our assistance and our level of service to our customers that we have received at Coble International since starting our business in 1988: (letters and emails are on file at office of Coble International):
My name is Rich. I've been struggling with learning even the basics of import/export. I bought course after course and each was practically useless. I made the decision to buy the Import Export Course Toolkit from your site, and it has to be among the best educational products I have ever bought. I was nervous about the price in the beginning, but I now consider my purchase a fantastic investment. Thank you!
Follow Up Comments after we asked Rich for permission to use his testimonial -
The use of my comments is absolutely okay with me.
You guys have a fantastic product. I'm actually trying to put together a couple of textile deals as I received your email. Can't thank you enough!
Rich. R. - Bridgeport, Connecticut USA - April 17, 2009 - Follow Up Comments - April 28, 2009
Your Import Export Toolkit is excellent. So much information, easy to understand. I'm lucky that I didn't go with the other program that would of cost me over $8000. If anybody follow this program they will be successful. Thanks again.
Afshin M. - Pickerington, Ohio USA - Email dated February 18, 2009
This one has two parts from the same customer:
Part 1 - Ron,
Thank you so much for this and thinking of me.
I can not tell you how exciting I am finding your course. It is so much easier to understand than the books I have purchased on the subject.
I will review this immediately.
I will stay in touch and thank you so much again. Leo P. - Glendale, AZ - Email dated July 31, 2008
Part 2 - Ron,
Thank you so much for your quick response.
In the future I will work harder on getting the phone number. I had to go through many people to get to him, as it was, so might as well get that instead of an email.
I did not know what to call myself, foolish of me to call myself an EMC. Should have just said a Brokering Company, or the like.
Got the point on the I we thing, great insight, thank you.
Leo P. - Glendale, AZ - Email dated December 19, 2008
Good Morning Ron,
Received yesterday the CD's in the mail. All look good, and with no flying for me til Wed of next week, I am going into this head first! Lot of info. I am through the first two CD's recommended. Much more today.
Thanks again for all your time and honesty. I am excited to have found you all and your program..... I have multiple products in mind to begin looking at for exporting....
Jason I. - Email dated April 11, 2008
I wanted to take the time to thank you personally for forwarding my email to Dr. Shaw of Dubai, UAE. I met him and his son in Dubai on Monday, and it was pleasure to meet both gentlemen and the possibility of making a sale is looking very good. I was in Dubai on Monday, as Dubai is our contractors "hub" city for departure flights to our Rest and Relaxation locations. Mine location is back home in MS to see my boys, although there is no rest in a 20+ flight and connection time in airports etc!
Thank you again, and I will keep in touch.
Chad Steenwyk - Email dated March 26, 2008
Thank you for all the great information and free goodies! I'm both excited and terrified at the same time, but anxious to get the ball rolling and your freebies and information will help.

Thanks again Ron....

Good evening Mr. Ron Coble:
I'm an adjunct professor at Miami Dade College and teach import and export courses. I'd like to maintain my subscription to your web site because I want to have some updated information of products and business opportunities in the industry and pass it on to my students.
I'm semi-retired from 30 years of working in the logistics industry.

Hosea - Email Dated October 15, 2006
Thank you very much Ron for your insightful and eye opening advice. I have been looking for someone who is willing to give the truth about this exporting process. This company I was talking about is doing just what you mention. They are trying to rush me into producing a Pro Forma Invoice so they could raise financing for the purchase (So they say.) from me. I will be very careful from now on and maintain control on my end and also check them out in the process.
C. Boone - Email Dated February 23, 2006
First of all I want to thank you for the resourceful information you have provided in your course. I have gained tremendous benefit from this course. I am now a professional international trader and I have attained this edge because of it. I have formed an offshore company in Hong Kong and I am engaged in international trade. I am now on the verge of concluding a long term contract of cement with the major importer of Guinea in West Africa. On the same token I am also negotiating with a factory in China as their EMC in Africa to secure the cement order. It was not easy to achieve all this but was worth the effort. Most important of all your course has been my guide and reference.
It has been great pleasure taking your course the import/export tool kit. Thank you for your kind co-operation.
Hassan Arteh - RIYADH, SAUDI ARABIA - Email Dated August 4, 2005
Thank-you for taking the time to speak to me the other day regarding the possible fraud on the internet on the sale of the BMW "from England". With a bit of research, I discovered the car's identity/vin/pictures were stolen off of the web and reproduced on auto trader.com. I actually spoke to the dealer who actually has the car in his showroom!!!
Thanks again for your help. My two sons got a real life lesson from our research and their eyes were certainly opened.

help in answering all my questions and the encouragement you gave me.
I received the import/export toolkit and it blew me away. It is
definitely worth every penny! I have only gone through two of the

I am so happy I found your site because I believe this to be the
ultimate tool and none of the books or sites I have or have visited
even come close.
So again, thank you!

Just wanted to let you know your materials have been helpful and I'm ready to get started. My business partner just relocated to Ecuador and will be there for at least six months. We plan on myself finding closeouts here in the US and exporting there, and also he will be a rep for a new furniture (high end) manufacturer down there looking to find importers here in the US. Ecuador is his home country so he has many contacts there.
Thank You Ron for your help.
