I was scammed by this company as well. I don't understand why Paypal hasn't banned them from doing business. I ordered 2 steam professional flat irons and what I got was 2 plastic "flat irons" that didn't even heat up. They didn't have the steam option and looked NOTHING like the picture of what I was supposed to receive. I have found that this company will steal other companies video's and pictures and use them as their own. Paypal refused to refund my money unless I returned the irons at MY expense for shipping. The shipping was going to cost more then I paid for the flat irons. I know so many people who have had issues with this company.
Paypal should banned them from doing business with them but for some reason has no intention of doing it. Clearly they do not care that their customers have been getting scammed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Because of this, I have started using other ways of sending payments when I can. I try very hard not to use Paypal unless I absolutely have to.
THAT WAS EXACTLY MY THINKING!!
Glad that you got your refund..
That is how I got mine also I rejected the package delivery so I didn't have to futts around shipping it back to China as well as pay for it.
When the mailman came with the package I said I refuse to take delivery, at which time the tracking info shows that pacake was refused & it's on its way back to Bumfook, China.
It is a good idea to take a pic of the package so you got the info from it or maybe write it down if your postman will let you.
Either way I personally see no difference refusing the package & returning to sender as it is taking delivery & sending it back at my expense lol
I think it is time to file a class action lawsuit against Pay Pal, for being part of this scam. The get away driver during a bank robbery is just as guilty as those that robbed the bank. Pay pal is no more then the get away driver in this scam.
BUT on some of the sites ZG Technology Co Limited has they list the company as being based in the UK then on some as New York, USA yet on others no mention as being a Chinese based comany.
Heck most of the people here didn't even know that they were doing business with ZG Technology untill the purchase was finalized.
Too much of a coincidence all these little intricacies on the sites run by ZG Technology to not be a purposeful effort in their deception.
You can see a pattern in many of these poor people's stories?
They TRUST PAYPAL so when they see the PayPal Logo as the sites payment processor with the words "FEEL SAFE FOR YOUR PROTECTED BY PAYPAL PURCHASE PROTECTION" as well as ZG Tech's claim of "100% GUARANTEE YOUR ITEM WILL BE THE SAME AS THE AD, YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO SEND THE ITEM BACK FOR A REFUND"..
I mean I really feel for these people, NO PayPal really can't be responsible for every bad purchase a user makes, BUT when a company is conducting an orginized campaign to defraud/scam people on mass then PayPal it's my belief that it's PayPal responsibility to have the seller HONOR THEIR CLAIMS & to either ship the actual items that were advertised or modify their ad to reflect the actual item.
Don't care what civilized country you live in that practice is ILLEGAL & please explain to me how PayPal isn't aware that there isn't something seedy & sneaky going on with ZG Technology.
As I havery said many times I'd bet anything that for every post in this thread about being scammed by ZG Tech that there's 1000's of other who ate in the same boat.
God only knows how many disputes were filed against ZG as well as how many people who don't know how to file or get a refund from a chinest company.
Lastly because ZG uses PayPal to process all their payments even people who didn't have a PayPal acct made their purchase thru the PayPal portal as a guest user or however those people are classified.
I venture to say 80% -90% have no idea about this community forum.
It looks to me that many found theyre way here through a Google search for ZG Technology co limited for this is the top search result along with Olivia "SOLVED" nonsensical header (which I wholeheartedly believe was the true purpose of the SOLVED post. So the word SOLVED shows up in a big font along side "ZG Technology Co Limited FRAUD -PayPal Community Forums" as the top google search result)
Send them an empty box or padded envelope to cut down on shipping costs. ZG Technology played games with you, you might as well fight back! All you need to do is show Paypal you've sent the item to ZG Technology. What they receive on their end isn't your problem!
I know that sounds crooked, but so far, you've been following the rules and you're still ending up **bleep**!
that's exactly what I said I don't know if it's the best of advice but that's what I would do!! I'd run item over with my car a few times or smash it with a sledgehammer or even melt it down into a little lump of plastic so it fits inot a greeting card envelope, then send it back. I've seen but some of these people forced to pay $60 plus to ship back an item that in actuality is worth less than $20. Those $100 drones that theyre selling when the victim gets his package contains a toy drone with an actual worth if about $12 the $39 lightsabers that they sell when victims get them it's a cheap $1.99 bad knockoff.
Same with the smartwatches & Marvel Ironman gloves.
EVERYTHING IS CHEAP LOOK-ALIKE KNOCKOFFS!!!
I can't call the crap counterfeit cause they're're slick enuff as NOT to put DJI, Marvel, etc logos on the items their shipping.
But sure as chit thier ads are showing DJI drones or other top of the line merchandise on their websites & definitely show quality name brand products in those Facebook ad campaigns
