Like many I have discovered, I was just victimized by a premeditated scam from Hong Kong by Jiadi-Co. LTD. I ordered a battery powered tree pruner for $45.97 & received a lousy $1 pair of pruning shears I could get at any dollar store. Even the Customs declaration stated it's value as $10, instead of the purported $90 value on sale at 50% off. I discovered all over the internet that this company has done this repeatedly. It is NOT an honest mistake but a carefully crafted theft. Just like every other complaint, the company demands return shipping of the "erroneous" item in less than 10 days before processing a refund...of course at our expense, which is more than the value of the crap to Hong Kong. And naturally, PayPal just goes right along as if they are oblivious that this has been done over and over to their own customers. If PayPal Resolution Center had actually INVESTIGATED the scam being perpetuated through its platform by this disreputable company, it would have discovered MULTIPLE COMPLAINTS by unsuspecting customers like myself that this was not a case of mistaken shipment but a planned and executed way to STEAL $45.97 from PayPal customers! Do you believe that they will honor my return of their $1 pruning tool and refund my $45.97 when they've intentionally perpetrated this scam worldwide??? Hardly. And by not shutting them down, PAYPAL is now complicit in this criminal action. How many customers will actually fight this? How many customers worldwide times $45.97 amounts to a monumental theft. We paid in good faith expecting the item as advertised. PayPal should be on top of this, not just coordinating a refund but SHUTTING THESE THIEVES DOWN!!!!
this is an ongoing SCAM. PAYPAL continues to allow themselves to be a conduit between the bank and this company, KNOWING that people are being scammed. WTF paypal??? WHY are you still allowing people to order from this company??????????
Same here. Resolution center is crap. This company is a total Hong Kong scam! After 2 months I finally got a "tracking number" which is some tracking system I've never seen. For weeks and weeks it shows my item is on a ship from China. Why isn't someone shutting these guys down! You can search this company and find complaints everywhere.
I also got scammed from this company and another fraudulent company called Original Paint by the Numbers. PayPal totally **bleep** me over with the Paint by the Numbers and sided with the company because they provided a "legit" tracking number that oh by the way I still have not received. Despite the fact that I provided PP with as much info as possible, the website was no longer up, the number was disconnected etc...Still waiting to see what PP does with these scammers JIADI Co.,Ltd on my pending case. If it is not in my favor I will NEVER use PP again as it has already lost credibility with me. PP's actual customer service (live person) is a JOKE!!!
PAYPALs response was to deny refund, stating that i did not return the cheap, plastic handled dollar store shears. this is true. I did not send them back to China, at my expense. BUT... this is NOT THE POINT, PATPAL. the POINT IS that this is ONGOING> AND YOU KNOW IT. Shut these **bleep**ers down and don't let your customers continue to lose $45.97 per person, per order, per scam.
Really steams me to know that there is no recourse with the company nor paypal.
I filed a complaint with the Browne County Sheriff's Dept about Jiadi Co. My package was maileld from their jurisdiction
--not Hong Kong!
