Recently I had ordered some Bandanas that can be used for "Face Masks". First my goal was

to order from an American supplier so I typed that in. Up came some bandanas and some said 100% cotton

which was perfect. I should have looked at the other reviews. Most gave the seller 4-5 stars. But My mistake for not

looking further into this.

When the order came this is what I got.

A bandana that was not 100% cotton. Some foreign material was used. The material was rough like sandpaper.

no tag on what material. used

A logo that stated USA designs printed on them.

poor quality sewing / not worth a nickel.

All packaged from CHINA and sent from China..

Some other sellers advertise "MADE IN AMERICA" but is completely false mostly made manufactured in China.

This really jerks my chain. That recently order I plan to return and get my money back.

I wish that all could be cracked down on "Misleading their products" And to be honest. I hate false advertisement.

All I can say is do your own research.

I have always been assured that by buying through Amazon or EBay, I can complain, and get my money back easily.

ALWAYS CHECK when buying from Amazon that the goods being supplied are actually sold and despatched buy Amazon and NOT a third party using Amazon as a sales platform . Always try to use a credit card for purchases or Paypal if it is offered that way goods should be covered in the event of faulty goods or parcels that don't turn up .
