Is Wayfair Child Trafficking? The Internet is up in Flames Over This Conspiracy Theory

  • The theory claims Wayfair may be trafficking children through high priced Cabinets
  • The products in question have been taken off the site
  • Wayfair has made a statement addressing the conspiracy theory

For liability purposes; There’s no proof to any of these claims. That’s why its labeled a conspiracy theory.

The theory originated yesterday on a Reddit post by PrincessPeach1987, and has since blown up on social media. There’s an overwhelming volume of information to read through; I’ve collected some of the major claims and described them here;

Storage cabinets are being sold by WFX Utility for over $10,000 with the same names of missing children

WFX Utility is owned by Wayfair, here is the trademark filed on 2018-07-12

A trademark is a type of intellectual property consisting of a recognizable sign, design, or expression which identifies products or services of a particular source.

Upon googling the product line I discovered that WFX Utility products are also sold by Walmart, with limited selection and storage cabinets not included. The retail giant only has a few of WFX Utility’s large product line listed. Furthermore, WFX Utility has no independent website or social media page as Wayfair embeds the product line within it’s master store.

Around this time last year, Wayfair employees were protesting an apparent sale of children’s beds to border detention camps;

CNBC reported more than 500 Wayfair employees signed on to a petition and are trying to rally support for a walkout Wednesday to protest the company’s apparent sale of $200,000 of mattresses to a detention camp for migrant children along the Mexican border.

The company sold the mattresses on June 13 to a charity group that works as a federal contractor managing some of the camps along the southern border, according to a copy of the sales receipt obtained by CNBC and verified by an employee. The roughly 1,600 mattresses and 100 bunk beds are scheduled to arrive in Carrizo Springs, Texas, on Wednesday and Thursday, according to the receipt.

Organizers, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation by the company, have posted a copy of a letter they sent to management as well as the company’s response to a Twitter account called Wayfairwalkout. They are trying to pressure the company into severing its relationship with Baptist Child and Family Services, the nonprofit that placed the order and is helping to furnish the detention center.

“The United States government and its contractors are responsible for the detention and mistreatment of thousands of migrants seeking asylum in our country,” the employees wrote in an undated letter organizers said was signed by 547 employees. “We want to be sure that Wayfair has no part in enabling, supporting, or profiting from this practice.”

Wayfair’s CEO Niraj Shah owns a children’s foundation. It’s called Shah Family Foundation

Using Yandex(a google-like search engine owned by a Russian multinational corporation), numerous social media users discovered something stomach turning when they searched the SKU of certain Wayfair products; the search engine displayed pictures of young girls.

It’s important to note this isn’t limited to WFX Utility, as you can see in the picture on the left the SKU is from an Executive Desk made by Brayden Studio being sold for $15,999.99. This is just one example of several that are circulating social media.

Here’s what Wayfair has to say;

Wayfair told Heavy in an emailed statement: “There is, of course, no truth to these claims. The products in question are industrial grade cabinets that are accurately priced.” The company explained why the items in question had been removed from the site.

Recognizing that the photos and descriptions provided by the supplier did not adequately explain the high price point, we have temporarily removed the products from site to rename them and to provide a more in-depth description and photos that accurately depict the product to clarify the price point.

The conspiracy is being met with criticism, including from Samiyah Mumin who is alive and well

“Who are you? How are you going to post about me being missing when you don’t even know me?

-Samiyah Mumin

I’d like to note that Wayfair isn’t the only big box retailer selling extremely expensive cabinets, Walmart has one too.

Baltimore Police Release Bodycam Video of Shooting on July 1st, 2020

  • The 33 year old man pulled a gun on police prior to being shot
  • He reportedly suffers from paranoid schizophrenia
  • The same man was naked outside and firing a weapon at vehicles in the area on June 20

In the 26 minute video just released by Baltimore Police Department, the 911 call that prompted the behavioral crisis visit is played followed by the full interaction. At the 25:50 mark in the video, the 33 year old man pulled his gun out and started to aim it at the officers. This is when he was shot.

CBS Baltimore reported, police officers shot and critically injured an armed 33-year-old man during a behavioral crisis call inside a home in the 5800 block of Falkirk Road around 3:25 a.m. During a news conference Thursday morning, police said they were previously called to the area on June 20 when the same man was naked outside and firing a weapon at vehicles in the area.

Officers recovered a firearm at the time, but police did not have a fixed address for his residence and couldn’t go to his home and see if he had any other weapons at the time.

“Before we show you the footage, I want to make it very clear that we understand the high level of public scrutiny that results from any use of force from the Baltimore Police Department and while we understand and accept that, we are committed to conducting a thorough investigation into this incident. Currently the individual is listed in stable condition at a local hospital and while this is an unfortunate incident, we wish the individual and his family a speedy recovery.”

-Police Commissioner Michael Harrison

When officers arrived at the home on July 1, police spoke to the man’s mother-in-law, who linked him to the June 20 incident. She told police she didn’t know if he was armed at the time but that he was in the basement with her daughter.

The woman told police he suffers from paranoid schizophrenia.

Trump Administration Will Enforce Chinese Technology Ban

  • Provisions of a 2018 law will be enforced in August
  • The FBI is opening a new counterintelligence case every 10 hours
  • It bans the federal government from contracting with any company that relies on products, equipment, or services from these five companies listed in the act

China’s ambition to take us down is not a secret. The astonishing amount of threats China imposes to America is diverse and continuing to grow; FBI has their hands full with a over 2,000 active cases.

“We’ve now reached a point where the FBI is now opening a new China-related counterintelligence case every 10 hours. Of the nearly 5,000 active counterintelligence cases currently under way across the country, almost half are related to China.”

-Chris Wray, FBI director

Mr. Wray is the FBI director who spoke to the Hudson Institute in Washington, describing a multi-pronged disruption campaign. He believes China is the “greatest threat” to America.

Here’s the official statement for the ban:

WASHINGTON—The White House says it will strongly enforce a government-wide ban on purchasing any products or services from entities that use technology containing components manufactured by Chinese companies, as provisions of a law passed in 2018 come into force in August.

The Trump administration believes the robust implementation of the new rule is critical to combat the national security and intellectual property threats posed by Chinese technology providers including Huawei and ZTE Corp., according to a senior administration official.

On Aug. 13, 2018, President Trump signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2019, which was approved by Congress with overwhelmingly bipartisan support.

Section 889 of the NDAA has two prohibitions for federal government procurement.

Subsection A, which went into effect in August last year, prohibits federal agencies from purchasing telecommunications equipment, video surveillance equipment, and services from five identified China-based companies—Huawei, ZTE, Hytera Communications, Hangzhou Hikvision, and Dahua Technology Co.

Subsection B, which will take effect on August 13, is much broader. It bans the federal government from contracting with any company that relies on products, equipment, or services from these five companies listed in the act—unless they get a waiver.

The overwhelming threat of China is largely downplayed by the media

That’s not to say they’ve ignored the problem completely, but instead choose to barely report on it. Like China Targeting US Groups Conducting COVID-19-Related Research, or China’s Capability To Melt U.S. Power Grid With Electromagnetic Pulse Weapon. Instead CNN focuses on emotion driven stories like this one. Obviously racism has no place in our modern society, and we appreciate our Asian Americans who’ve contributed immensely to Americas success and economy. But America needs to be aware of this threat, regardless of political views. This isn’t made up or over-exaggerated propaganda, this stuff is really happening and it’s scary.

Just to name a few more recent investigations;

Is this ban enough to stop it? Probably not

As Patrick Tucker from Defense One states, it won’t be easy. “American technology and the Chinese government are part of an increasingly tangled web, and un-knotting it is no simple task. In some cases, punitive actions toward China have had some success. U.S. sanctions on Huawei prevented the Chinese telecom company from acquiring encryption technology that would have improved the security of the company’s products. This led the British government to consider reversing its plans to allow Huawei into the British telecommunications market.Technology that was somewhat safe for civilian use was now unsafe, thanks in part to U.S. efforts.

In other cases, trying to prohibit or pull U.S. companies out of business deals with China has proven difficult. The Trump administration placed 28 Chinese tech companies on the Commerce Department’s Entity List — effectively a blacklist — in October, in part because of their role in tracking and persecuting Muslims in Xinjiang. But several of these companies are customers of California-based Nvidia, a major maker of graphics processing chips heavily used by the world’s artificial intelligence firms. The blacklisted firms include SenseTime, which creates machine vision technology, and Megvii and Hikvision, which sell facial recognition technology.”
