“Online Customer Service” is a link, which conveniently leads to a page stating
对不起，参数验证失败 Sorry, Validation failed 對不起，參數驗證失敗 Произошел сбой в проверке данных Falha na verificação. Tente novamente. Verificación de parámetros fallida
and a button labelled “关闭” (“close”?), which does nothing. The bluish background is nice and the meep-meep crossed out GIF does not have transparency, but at least the Google Analytics JS crap is implemented correctly.
Yeah, so, I submitted pictures and a description of the infringement, what should I do? Submit the same stuff once again? Where or where to? There’s no link to an answer page, the mail says “do not respond” (and that’s probably true, reply-to address is firstname.lastname@example.org – eat some spam!), and there’s no notification, open claim or whatever in the AliExpress user area. So…that’s how serious Ali is about product piracy. Who would’ve guessed…
