Welcome to the Communtiy, @LendonDirect! That’s a great question and a very valid concern.
The Oberlo Blog has an excellent article on How to Avoid Counterfeit Goods on AliExpress that I highly recommend reviewing. It discusses the consequences of selling goods that are not reputable, as well as contains a list of best practices that you can follow when you’re sourcing products from AliExpress, in order to best protect yourself and your business. The Oberlo Help Doc Find Highly Rated AliExpress Suppliers also contains great tips on what to look for when choosing your suppliers.
