So I got scammed this week & the experience was truly terrible!

Please beware of buying online. Don’t just simply depend on their ratings ’cause the rate won’t tell you about the whole truth.

The saddest part of my experience is the fact that they still maintain a good ratings of 4.5/5.0.

Their secret is pretty simple.

50 % true to its picture, but some may lack in quality and 50 % has some good quality but obviously different in the photo they presented.

I understand that it is quite cheaper than other shops, but I still give it a try because of the high ratings they have reached which I never thought of being scammed.

The heart breaking part of this is, I bought everything in bulk just for me to lessen the cost of shipping.

But to my dismay, most of the items are completely different from the photos they presented.

From the color, texture and even its appearance are completely different from what you saw on their shop.

The process of return was insane and terrible. It is way harder than just placing an order. But I am working on it since I’ve lost thousands of money from a fraud shop.

I already reported the shop who did this to me and I am now taking the legal process, just way too hassle for me.

Really hoping to get my money back and the shop need to be penalized for making people believe that all their products were authentic and in good quality.

This is just the down side of ordering online for you do not really see the actual photo. Most of it were just edited and some may claim that it may only different in color because of the camera they used. But you can test it when you are being scammed by the seller once you receive them from the actual.

Sadly, refunding of money is at the hand of the seller. Some sellers are so nice and understanding.

There was one seller who sent my parcel with 2 lacking of items, but the seller mmediately refunded my money without having a second thought about it.

Whereas this seller had a very thick skin, that after sending them a video and photos for proof of my complain and concern they immediately disputed my request for return/refund of my orders.

But God is good, the provider of ecommerce for shopping online has the last say whether to grant my request or not.

What really saddens me now is the fact that they are so used to scamming people.

If ever you got scammed, don’t let your fear devour you. If you know how to order online, you must also learn to complain about your orders and address the issue to the right person-in-charge.

I know and I believe that karma will be on its way and that would teach them a lesson they’ll never forget.

Do not fear of waiting too long to process it. You just have to have a courage to reach them either by a live chat or an email.

Please be persistent in reaching out to them and always make a habit to do a follow-up. Just make sure that you keep everything with you such as the original packaging of your orders with complete details of course. And make sure that you have compiled all the needed evidences they need to see with regards to your complains. Make sure that the photo is in good quality to actually see the difference. Also keep in mind that you are asking for their help so be respectful all the time. Be honest with your concern and be direct to the point.

Think of it this way, the moment you keep silent it just means that you also didn’t care about other buyers.

I will not let this thing slide. I will still continue to send a hard evidence that they become accustomed to fraud and doing that kind of business shouldn’t be tolerated.

Their business permit must also be confiscated and removed their right to continue doing business online.

So what kind of a buyer are you?

The silent type or someone who knows how to fight for your right?

I know it was really stressful and time consuming on my part, but I’m still doing it anyway ’cause that’s part of being a buyer. So instead of just sitting around, kindly stand up and fight for your right.

If you are not going to do anything, for how long will you remain like that?

Even if it takes forever, at least you know to yourself that you are also doing it for the other potential buyers that wil shop from them.

TL; DR ( Too Long; Didn’t Read )

Ratings are not reliable
*please check for photos and comments as well
Practice your right and do a legal action about it
*fear or fraud, what will you choose?

    1. So sorry for the late reply, we recently had super typhoon in our province, that’s why I became offline for several days.

      Anyhow, thank you so much for commenting on my blog. It’s really a pleasure to have some readers like you who tend to make a comment on whatever I post since there’s plenty of bloggers out there.

      And yes, I totally agree with you! 👍 I want everyone to be extra careful in buying online, so I shared my own experiences to somehow avoid from happening this again.

      No worries, all my money are already in process for refund. Thank you, Lord! 😭
