Shirley, I have just posted this on my FACEBOOK PAGE
I want to warn everybody on here of a company called Yinglian Trading Co., Ltd. ...they are a bunch of SCAMMERS and thieves. There are hundreds if not thousands of people (like me) have tried to buy from this company only to be scammed and stolen from. How they do it is they advertise on Facebook a genuine product at a reasonable price (not too low and not too high) and they use Paypal (so you think they are legit)...far from it. They take your money and then send you out a fake plastic replica of the item you have bought (like a cheap plastic toy that you wouldn't even pay a pound for). So as far as Paypal are concerned they have completed the deal. So if you go back to Paypal to complain they say that you must return the item to the company before you get the money back. Of course, it will cost you more to send the rubbish plastic replica back to the company and therefore you don't get your money back and the company goes on trading and Paypal keeps on supporting them or should I say assisting them. It is a SCAM of the first-rate. So please watch out for this company because they advertise on Facebook and Instagram. They are called Yinglian Trading Co., Ltd. but hey use different names....if I had have seen this trading name I wouldn't have bought from them but I did. The only good thing is I never got the item so hopefully, in my case, I will get my money back from Paypal....you have been warned. Please share.
Part of the reason this company gets away with this is they use different names on their webstores; for instance the one I bought from was elvesshop.com, it was before Christmas so what the heck. unfortunately the only time you see Yinglian Trading Co., Ltd. is after the fact. They shut down the various webstores (or maybe just rename) and move on to the next victims. Most of us felt a sense of security paying with PayPal believing that there was an element of protection for the buyer (never again); and it truly seemed like a good buy. I do hope you are able to get your money back, but so many have not it will take quite a bit of effort on your part. I for one have a low opinion of thieves and crooks (which is what they are) and was not planning on stopping short of getting my money back. If you look thru these many postings there are several agencies you can report to; and truly if someone came up with a means of a class action lawsuit that would be fantastic. I would love to see this scam company shut down. And as far as PayPal is concerned they need to have more regard for the people who put their trust in them....... this many people with all the same story are not lying!! Best of luck to you!!
I received no help from Paypal when this company ripped me off because i said i could not return the piece of crap they sent me and have it reach Yinglian in the next 7 days in order to get a so called refund the closed my case.
I don't think that the company even has the items that we purchased. Their business is to collect money for nothing and make it impossible the return the junk. They must have a warehouse filled with rubber gloves and plastic trays. I would think they are doing a great deal for the Chinese economy.
I decided to stop using paypal 3 weeks ago. I use it for my business and thought it was going to be a real pain to stick to. I'm happy to say I am pp free for 3 weeks now and it has been virtually pain free! Do the same people, pp is not going to do anything about it until we hurt their pocket book more then kicking the scammers to curb hurts their pocketbook!
Guys, what are your thoughts on my idea of how to deal with this bunch of scammers? I do feel we need Paypal to take this matter seriously and remove this company from their list of approved companies. With all the complaints they are having about this company surely they MUST remove them. I just understand why they choose to have any dealings with them. They are simply are Thieves. It appears they don't have any of the products they are advertising but are sending cheap rubbish out to us their customers. In my own personal case, I didn't get this rubbish but they have proof that they sent me something (which I didn't get). Which is why I think the best solutions to deal with this company is to send them an empty envelope back to them. At least you will have proof of postage....the fact that they get an empty envelope is neither here nor there. They have sent you nothing other than plastic rubbish were you are returning empty air. I know it sounds dishonest but when you think of it, what have they sent you? it certainly wasn't what you bought or expected, it was rubbish. If you went into Harrods or any other store you would expect the item you paid good money for. You wouldn't expect Harrods to hand you pink rubber gloves or a pink plastic shelf or some other rubbish...would you? I would expect that you would ask to see the manager and have very stern words with them. Probably some of you might resort to violence but I'm not asking you to do that. What I am trying to do is, first of all, get Paypal to have nothing to do with this company. The other thing I am asking people to do is work together and make a concerted effort to do something like what I have suggested. As the saying goes " there are many ways to skin a cat"
I have reported this company to the UK Police by way of Action Fraud and there is now a case file made on them. I have reported them to Facebook (because they advertised on Facebook) Unfortunately they keep popping up under new names) I have let my friends know what they are doing, plus there is now a Facebook page dedicated to their dishonesty and how they have scammed 100s of people around the world, all through the protection of Paypal. I would be very interested to hear any other suggestions on how to deal with these robbers.
It costs $20 cdn to send an envelope with a picture of what they sent me, back to China. Still not to my fancy as PayPal will probably not repay the shipping. But, I thought it was a god **bleep** for tat idea.
PayPal pays enough attention to our post as I tried to say **bleep** for tat and they bleeped the **bleep** part. Silly but how about titfortat all one word.
