So I recently got scammed and 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 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 any other shops, but I still give it a try since their ratings were high enough that 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 were completely different from the color, texture and even its appearance.

And the process of return/refund was such as hassle. It is way harder than just placing an order. But I am still pushing it since I’ve lost thousands of money from a fraud shop.

No worries ’cause I already reported the shop who did this and I am taking the legal process, just way too long.

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

Well, obviously this is just the down side of ordering online ’cause you don’t really see the actual item.

And the saddest part of it is that, it was edited and many sellers used to claim that it may be slightly different in color because of the camera they used. But you can tell it immediately when you are being scammed by the seller once you received your orders.

Sadly, refunding of money in on the end of the seller and you are lucky enough to meet other sellers who are so nice and understanding.

I remember, there was one seller who sent my parcel with a 2 lacking of items and the seller immediately refunded my money without having a second thought about it.

I know, the process of refund may take long. But at least it has been approved immediately. No need for you to make any drama just to convince him/her that you have not receive the 2 remaining items. I just simply send some proof and in less than a hour, the seller did cooperate to my concerns.

Whereas, this seller had a very thick skin that after sending a video and several photos for proof of my complain, the seller heartlessly disputed my request for return/refund of my orders.

Good thing, the provider of ecommerce for online shopping has the last say whether to grant my request or not.

But what really saddens me now is the fact that the shop was 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 know how to address your concerns to the right people. Look for customer service and search for their official email address and some offer a live chat with their agent, so they can immediately hear your concerns.

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 contact them. It is really up to you. Just be persistent in reaching out to them and always make a habit to do a follow-up.

Also 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 evidence that they need to see with regards to your complain. Additionally, make sure that the photo is in good quality to easily determine the problem.

More importantly, keep in mind that you are asking for their help, so be respectful whenever you can.

Be honest with your concern and be direct to the point. Don’t talk way too long since they are dealing with tons of complain every minute or hour.

To assist you immediately, give now the order ID of the package you have concern with. They may also ask for your email address that you are using for them to check and to also cope up with you.

Very time consuming, right?

Just think of it this way, the moment you keep silent…

It just means that you also do not care about other buyers.

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

Their business permit must also be confiscated and be banned from 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, 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’re not going to do anything, how long would you bear it?

Even if it takes forever, at least you know to yourself that you are also doing it for the other potential buyers that will 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?

Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I do hope that you learn something today. God bless!

Brutally Honest: Only Few Are Real Ones

I hate to admit it, but that’s a reality.

If the person habitually do a “seen mode” to your messages or keeps on ignoring you for like forever,

That person is just sending you one thing…

She’s not interested at all.

Period!

Some people are only present in our lives just because they need something from us.

And once they already succeeded, that’s also the end of our connection with them.

This is not a thing.

But a person, rather.

I am not angry nor mad of why I include this on my blog.

This is just simply for someone who has got accustomed to be being a fake.

I know they are in pain.

That’s the sole reason, why they are faking it.

But the moment you habitually do that,

That’s no longer other’s fault.

That has already became a part of you.

So my only reason why I wrote this down is…to give hope that there’s always a choice.

It is up to you what to choose.

But I suggest that,

Instead of faking it, why not choose to be transparent?

After all,

It’s not about being weak.

It is about revealing yourself, so they may somehow understand you.

I know, all of us wear different faces everyday.

And there’s nothing wrong about it.

If it is about protecting yourself from cruel judgment…

Then, we’ll understand it.

But,

If you are doing it just to take advantage…

Then, that’s a different story!

So while it is never too late,

Learn to fix yourself.

‘Cause you are the only key towards change.

No matter how caring and supporting the people around you,

If you don’t want to make any changes in your life…

All the caring for you, no longer add any value and impact to your life.

Plastic people will always be plactic. But for how long can they stay on that cage?

Crocodile Tears

Featured Image: From This Website

Have you ever met someone who became so complacent about lying?

Well, we all do.

Today, I would like to share some of the red flags I myself experienced firsthand.

Though this is not a 100% guarantee that you will be able to catch the person if he in the first place already mastered the art of lying.

Meaning to say, he already got accustomed in making lies perhaps due to peer pressure, family expectations, and or high standards/ requirements either from school or work.

But the buttom line is, whether there’s a valid reason behind it or not, lying is never a good idea and shouldn’t be tolerated.

So without further ado, here are some techniques you can do about it:

  • Make an eye to eye contact

Do you know that according to psychology, the person who is not telling the truth cannot maintain an eye to eye contact?

You may also have observed that his body is shaking or his eyes are somewhere else because of thinking of other ways to reason out.

  • Know if he always acts like a victim

Be alert especially at times when a person acts in such a way that made you feel that you are the one attacking him without any basis or solid proof.

For some occasion, he may also do the “fake tears” thing in order to make you feel even worse!

Like you are the person who is a war freak who doesn’t even know how to discuss things in a nice and friendly manner.

Sounds ridiculous, right?

  • Does he make a lot of excuses?

Been there, done that!

And I know how it feels whenever someone is trying to cover up his made up lies.

In fact, I had known one who lied on me several times.

Though I cannot put everything here in details, but let me share with you how I get even more paranoid and suspicious about the way he lies.

The first thing I could vividly remember is that, he cannot get a job because of high requirements in working abroad.

Second, his family needs him more in the house so he gave up his dreams; also to give way for his brother to take his place for the meantime.

Third, he became fed up of trying because of so much failures and disappointments that he faced along the way.

He then blame me for being so concerned about him to the point of calling me such a nagger; giving him a lot of unsolicited advice and so and so forth.

Being in that kind of relationship is toxic and depressing.

But also keep in mind that this scenario does not only happen in relationship ’cause it could also happen even in family and friends who were driven by pride, jealousy, envy and the like, so you have to be more cautious of giving your trust away.

After all, not everyone can admit to themselves that they are at fault despite the fact of being caught.

I hope I was able to give the reader a clue or at least be of a great help to you to somehow ease your pain and heartache you might be struggling with, ’cause life is still beautiful no matter what.

Here are just some of the things I discovered along the way.

I know, there’s more of this to discuss, so feel free to share your ideas, and experiences with me and kindly leave a comment below.

Gracias!

PS: I’ve seen a nice video about crocodile tears, you might want to watch it.

Enjoy!
