Re: Xingyao e-commerce Co., Limited - Scam company

If you purchased through PayPal, you find your transaction and initiate a refund. Take some pictures of the item and send these to the seller to document. Request a full refund. The company will offer a fractional refund. Don’t take it. This is the scam. Ignore the offer and escalate to PayPal dispute resolution. They will investigate and then they should refund your money.

Re: Xingyao e-commerce Co., Limited - Scam company

At the end of June I was scammed by this company and after emails to a from the Paypal agent the best he could offer was 60% off the sale price not the total price!  I escalated through the resolution centre and was told I would have to send the piece of Cr*p back to China for a Full Refund. Just like most of the rest of you, a small percentage of you did get a refund with no rhyme or reason to it.  The shipping agent I was going to use wanted a phone number and email address of the seller in China. I asked 4 times for this information from PayPal, they totally ignored the questions. Sound familiar? I subsequently failed to send the item back and paypal informed me that because I had not produced a tracking number, I had failed to send the item back and they would close the case!!. The resolution case was closed. 

I then took my complaint and all the relevant paperwork to my bank as I had used a debit card. They have now refunded all my money and paypal have now complained that I involved the bank without closing the resolution case while they are still reviewing it. When I look on line it's open again but just showing as being reviewed. 

So, do not give up, all is not lost. Copy all that you can from the paypal webpages and this forum and send it to the bank your card represents. There are people who care out there but, unfortunately paypal are not one of them. I am now going to close my account with paypal.  Good luck, I hope this has helped you in some way.

Re: Xingyao e-commerce Co., Limited - Scam company

Thank you for posting your results with pay pal as this has happened to me and i just have posted my question on what  can i do to make pay pal change their decision for me , as they wanted me to return back to the scammer seller but I hadnt seen your post first before my post.
Interesting that PayPal is making the buyers of these scammers send back to the seller knowing damn well it is a scam, its like Pay Pal is on the scammers side. No wonder the scammers continue to scam people with this trick of sending junk instead of the advertised product, people cannot be bothered fighting pay pal with it.
Would u be able to share the link to contact pay pal via the virtual agent as i cannot see live chat anywhere and found it hard just to find their "email me" area once i was logged into pay pal. I only stumbled on it after logging out of pay pal and then googling how to email pay pal whilst i was not logged in.

Hi @molly_chick 

I am going to answer your question in 2 seperate replies.

First, I have copied what I said to an agent below. (in my second reply, I will show you how to find where to access the chat on paypal to get to an agent). It can take a long wait time to be connected to an agent, so go ahead and write out your problem all the way like you are talking to them so that when they actually log on to chat with you, and you are already asleep lol, they can read about the problem.

Here's the transcript from when I chatted with an agent...

Hi! I'm your PayPal Assistant. I can help with common questions like "what's the status of my dispute" or "I want a refund".

I started a case with the resolution center. I have been waiting and waiting for an item to arrive that I ordered. It was shipped from China. It finally arrived but the company sent the wrong item. I sent pictures as proof. The company now says that they will issue a refund once I return the item. It costs over $40 to return this item to China and I do not feel that I should have to pay return shipping fees since they sent the wrong item. They can either pay the return shipping costs since it was their error or they can resend the correct item. There is no place for me to respond to them on the resolution center, only a place to send the shipping information. I need to speak with an agent please. I feel this is fraud on the companys part and paypal is suppossed to protect customers. This company sent the wrong item but I have to pay to return? please contact me.

Hello Amy! Sadly we cannot force the seller to pay for the return shipping costs. However, we do have a return shipping reimbursement program that you can sign up for at paypal.com/returns for up to $30 in reimbursement for the shipping costs. To enroll in Return Shipping on Us, please visit: www.PayPal.com/Returns.

They sent me the wrong item. If you check the community board messages, you will see they do this often. sending the wrong items and then only offering a refund if the wrong item gets returned which they know often costs a huge amount of money. where is the buyer protection? They sent me the wrong item. I feel they should have to resend the correct one. This was THEIR mistake.

I'm sorry for the frustration this has caused, Amy. I've reviewed the details and closed the case in your favor without having to return the incorrect item. The $20.98 refund has been sent to your card ending in xx. It typically takes 3-5 business days for a card provider to process a refund. I'm glad I could resolve this case for you!
 
Please let me know if you have any other questions. Feel free to reply whenever you're ready and we'll reply as soon as we can. If there is nothing else, have a great rest of your day!

Re: Xingyao e-commerce Co., Limited - Scam company

Hi @molly_chick 

Here's my second reply to your post. I had to go back and find where I posted the way I was able to find the chat option on paypal. You are right, it is super hard trying to find it.

For the chat -

It is on the paypal page, at the top of the page click "help". then look for the words "help center". scroll to the bottom and look for words "contact us" and click that. it might take a minute. It will give you a screen saying "tell us about your issue". Ignore that and scroll down to the bottom and look for the words "message us". You should see a screen pop up from a paypal virtual agent. Tell them again about your problem with the company, and you can reference to this community board post if you want. you are not the only person to be scammed by this company. Hopefully the agent will review things again.  Be sure and tell them the whole story, you might be put on hold with the virtual agent like I did, but when a real person came on line (in the middle of our night here in the USA), they were able to read what I had written and reviewed things again and then refunded my money. Hope this helps.

Amy

Re: Xingyao e-commerce Co., Limited - Scam company

Hi there, thank you so much for the step by step information, was very user friendly to read and i achieved results getting to the virtual chat area. 
Have just copied and pasted my 2 emails that i sent them in last couple of days  (which they didnt bother replying to) so see how i go here. 
My amount lost is only $24.98 US but it really annoys me that this is a well known scam to Pay Pal yet they are doing nothing about it and letting the scammers get away with it so im not going to let this go easily. 
I have done as u mentioned, wrote the details on the message and hopefully it wont take too long for them to reply or acknowledge it (I just hope i dont accidentally close the page down or accidentally turn my computer off before they answer 😄 ) and hopefully it wont take as long as another person on here stated, hers was 36 hrs before they answered her msg!
Thank you once again and fingers cross Pay Pal sees sense in what people are asking from them.
The world is in a bad enough state and shape as it is at the moment without us being scammed on top of it all and not getting any support from organisations like Pay Pal that are meant to be there to help in cases like this.

Re: Xingyao e-commerce Co., Limited - Scam company

It took along time but PayPal FINALLY refunded me after I escalated the issue. It might've helped by telling them that there is a massive forum subject on their website about this seller, which is what I didm

Lucky you lol, some of us obviously aren't that lucky, I told them over and over about this thread but it didn't make any difference unfortunately, personally I think a lot of it is down to sheer luck and which agent is dealing with it.

Re: Xingyao e-commerce Co., Limited - Scam company

This was the response I got off PayPal regarding this company Michael2:47 PM Hi Karen, thank you for contacting PayPal. We do keep a close eye on the amount of disputes that are opened against a merchant and take action when we see a high amount of claims, or an escalation in the amount of claims, opened against a seller. The case was still filed as a Non Receipt case. I have updated it to the correct Significantly Not As Described one. We will take over from here and deal directly with the seller on your behalf. We allow the seller a maximum of 10 days to get back to us. We will update you as soon as we hear back from them. If we don’t hear back from them, the case should automatically close in your favor, with the funds reversed back to your bank. If we do ask you to return an item for a full refund, we look to assist with the cost of the returning it. I will add details below about Return Shipping on Us. There are a couple of very good sites available at present, where you can research the cheapest options for return it and can even arrange collection, if you wish. They are: Parcel2go Parcel Hero Parcel Monkey
