Out $129.99 due to this. PayPal threw out dispute 5 times. Didn't send product ordered but won't refund me either. The fact that PayPal is allowing this and not backing the purchase as they say they do has me rethinking using them at all. What's the point?
Join the group. The firm is a total scam. Do not expect an email reply from them not a refund from Paypal. Once 163.com responds to Paypal with a "tracking number" for something you had not ordered, then Paypal closes your case and denied you a refund. Hard lesson learned.
Purchased two tires and rims from 163.com on what appeared to be a legit site. Received confirmation from PayPal making me feel great about the purchase. Two days later received another PayPal email confirmation of shipment with UPS tracking number. Tracking showed delivered to an address that does not exist by UPS. Red flag was the 5.63 pounds weight. Two tires and rims would have been well over 50 pounds. When I called UPS they would not confirm the exact address stating security reasons. Followed up with PayPal who did not show the charge. Contacted my bank and credit card company and confirmed the charge that Pay Pal didn't show but was sending confirmation for shipping. Canceled my credit card and disputed the charges with them. This clearly is a sophisticated scam that appears to be taking online shoppers for a few bucks using PayPal as cover. UPS actually told me the order originated at Amazon that they picked up so this hack is into very large companies.
