Of all the questions people ask frequently, this is actually one of our favorites. It shows that our trade data is so powerful, some people think it must be illegal. Thankfully the data is legal, and Import Genius is NOT a scam.  We're scrappy, hard-working and honest as the night is long. We get all the data we provide--whether it's U.S. import manifests records or shipping data for nine countries in Latin America--from legitimate government or private industry suppliers. None of it is obtained through any kind of nefarious or corrupt means. And we offer the best customer service anywhere on the Internet.  Not convinced? Still think Import Genius is a scam? Call us for a live demo to see the data for yourself and speak to one of our agents. We're confident you'll come away satisfied that we are on the level--or indeed, several notches above.
