so i called my bank explained to them what happened, and they did a dispute on all the charges and it got taken care of, tell them YES there is a tracking # BUT china post is for small parcels only, so if u paid for an item that weighs more than 4 lbs, u should be good to go, forget paypal, especially if u use ur cc thru paypal like i do, call the credit card company explain how there are multiple web sites all affiliated with comiclake and explain how the address is the same on all web sites, but different numbers that do not connect.... my bank was all over it right away
There are dozens if not hundreds of scams online now. It is the same MO for every company they just have different names and fake websites. Most provide you a fake tracking number to an address that will be in the same city as yours that they have hacked somehow. All correspondence with you will have your address on the tracking. On the day of delivery, they send an email stating that your package was left at your mailbox or near it. In reality, they send a 1 oz. package to the other address in your city. Some people actually receive something at the correct address like someone in this forum that received a candy necklace. I think that is riskier for the scammers.
Paypal denies your claim because the company provides them with tracking. Paypal only sees what we see. That it was delivered to our address. USPS could not tell me which address my 6 lb package was delivered to but they told me it was half an ounce. I assume they can't divulge the address because of privacy concerns. Paypal will deny your claim unless you can prove it was not delivered at your address. You have to call USPS or UPS and ask for an email that says the item was not delivered to your address. Then forward the email to Paypal along with the info for your claim. The only claims with refunds are the people that had an email from the post office or UPS.
has anyone noticed the website they originally ordered from is now not working, or is it just the one i used that keeps coming up as the ip address cannot be reached? mine was an affiliate...my tracking numbers are still active as well
The one I got scammed on is still up but advertising a big "Merry Christmas" sale. As long as nobody does anything about them they will continue scamming. My case was supposed to be settled by PayPal by midnight last night but not a word from them. Thus far the crooks have had over a month to comply with PayPal's "requests for information" but all the thieves have provided is a China Post tracking number for their small packet service. The item I was taken for was a table saw weighing 45.0 pounds. Although I have been admonished by another contributor for not having a broad enough view of the situation, there is no way China Post is going to ship a 45.0 pound table saw using their small packet service (weight limit 4.4 pounds).
That said the tracking shows whatever little item was sent to me in order to placate PayPal is lost in space and appears to have never left China. Someone else mentioned they got a little envelope with a candy necklace enclosed in lieu of an order for a bunch of tools. PayPal has had this information since the dispute was opened last month but still this seller is wheeling and dealing.
Best of luck with your claim.
That is reassuring that you got your money back. I still have not gotten my candy necklace but it appears to have been eaten by the China Post.
Hopefully all of us who have been taken by these fraudsters will be so fortunate. It is surprising however that there is no justice but perhaps the laws are substantially different in a communist country. I would think there would be some reciprocity between nations to at least minimize this type of activity but apparently not.
Best of all to you.
I tried customer service but it is 3-4 hours wait to get a live agent so I gave up. Make sure to file a dispute if you have been scammed by these crooks.
