Re: Storm Media Limited

@Geb_3 


How do I open a dispute with a seller when a purchase goes wrong?

You can open a dispute in the Resolution Centre of your PayPal account within 180 days of payment if:
•You don’t receive the item
•You receive an item but it’s significantly different than the description on eBay or on the seller’s website

By opening a dispute, you can communicate directly with your seller to work out a problem transaction.

If you reach an agreement with the seller you can close the dispute. If you're still not happy with the result, you can escalate the dispute into a claim. We'll review the claim and decide on reimbursement.

These steps apply to Personal accounts. If you have a Business account, please log in to see the steps that apply to you.

To open a dispute:
1.Log in to your PayPal account.
2. Click on the transaction and use the resolve a problem option at the bottom of that details page.

Note:
•Generally buyers must wait at least 7 days from the date of payment to escalate a dispute for an item not received
•Where an item has not been received, please ensure you have given the seller enough time before opening a dispute

DO NOT CLOSE THE DISPUTE UNTIL YOU HAVE A CLEARED REFUND OR YOUR ITEM WHATEVER THE SELLER SAYS. ALSO DON'T FORGET TO ESCALATE THE DISPUTE TO A CLAIM WITHIN 20 DAYS IF THE SELLER DOES NOT REFUND.

If that does not work then if you funded your paypal payment via a card then contact your card issuer and see if they will do a chargeback for you.


Advice is voluntary.
Kudos / Solution appreciated.

I have just reviewed my recent bank statement and noticed a charge from Storm Media for $250.00. I have no idea about this company, nor the reason for the charge. I will email my bank, as well, but wanted to make a report here.

Storm Media PayPal was name of the charge out of my bank acct. It says She Swish Ltd on my PayPal draft, however, I actually ordered off a website called Light Maroon. Apparently there are many websites linked to these scams....Smileyhomey, Sweet and Rosy, Pastel Beige, Got, Get, Gotten, and I’m sure many more!! So many complaints. It appears PayPal supports the fraudulent activity by tying up your money and making you jump through lots of hoops to attempt to get a refund. It appears most of the time the product isn’t delivered, but when it is, it’s crap or damaged and PayPal does not do anything. I have filed complaints w BBB. I’m going to my bank for the refund and planning to shut down PayPal. Way too many great businesses and financial institutions to deal w fraudulent companies and impossible refunds when the product never arrives. 🙄🤥😤 Shame on PayPal!

Re: Storm Media Limited, Fraud?

I ordered a teeth-whitening pen from Storm Media. When I received the package, there was no information, no label, no instructions, nothing. Just a silver pen without any markings identifying what it was or what it contained, nothing. After reporting the problem to PayPal including photos of the package & pen as evidence, PayPal ruled in Storm Media’s favor. I was shocked. Would anyone use a random silver pen on their teeth, knowing they would ingest some of the contents, but not knowing what it contained or how to safely use it? How would anyone know it’s supposedly for teeth whitening? Afterwards I investigated Storm Media & found that they were using stolen advertising images from another legitimate company. Further investigation brought me here and it’s obvious PayPal blindly rules in Storm Media’s favor. I can only surmise that PayPal does a tremendous amount of business with Storm and doesn’t care about the safety of their customers. Having unlabeled product that is intended for internal use is illegal, regardless of where the product was manufactured. Shame on you PayPal. Your claim that the safety of customers is your first priority is meaningless.

Re: Storm Media Limited, Fraud?

I wish you the best of luck dealing with them in getting your money back. I recommend speaking directly with your bank & documenting everything, including the name of whom you speak to and the date and time of your calls. Not having to go through PayPal is actually an advantage for you as they protect Storm Media , no matter the illegality of the company and it’s “products.” Don’t wait for quarantine to end, either. Call today if you can. Good luck.
