Dealing With Sources...

Not to long ago i was asked to source some test for a friend (no, really!). We emailed a bunch of websites and people asking what we believe to be reasonable questions, price and success rate of shipping, etc. Its been 4-5 weeks and not a peep from ANY of them concerning these questions. This is not the first time this has happened either. Some of these sources have been discussed within this forum.

I am wondering if this is at all unusual? Is there something i am missing? we are not located in the countries they are in, i spoke plain english, no extraneous info…

Do they have to know you? get referals? Iam happy to write them off as bad sources but since we have no experience is there something we should know?

Yeah they prob think your a fed. Most people only order after a source check which can be done multiple ways. Most of them arent hurting for business so if I were them I would disregard people emailing me for deals and what not…its not like its a car dealership
