Re: LIN JINRONG

Attention this seller LIN JINRONG is demonstrable cheater!! there is still the same problem: he is sendind other goods with significant low quality than was ordered. For back sendig he ask totally nonsense condition (no intact packaging and sending only via DHL or UPS). His sended product was send to purchaser by common post and real value of it is less then a couple dollars.  Value of back sending many times exceeds valoue of his fake product and this cheater is betting to this and he hope that purchaser stop next  effort to have ordered product. Do not buy anything by LIN JINRONG!

Re: LIN JINRONG

I ordered a 3-4 person double layer hydraulic tent for $69.99 (saw the ad on Facebook from Molyes Stores). Their website now redirects to ilovecamping[dot]us. They also have another scam running on polaristore[dot]net.

 

I usually order from a website I know and trust, but I live in Brazil now and my options are limited for shipping. This company offered free international shipping, and because payment was settled by PayPal, I believed I could trust it.

The product that arrived was not anything like what was advertised on their website. A $5 single layer kiddie tent not large enough for a single adult, no hydraulic system as advertised. The product is useless and will end up in the trash.

At first I thought maybe this was an honest mistake, but when I saw that it was shipped from China (the website claims to be US-based), and saw how many folks online had the same problem, I knew I was scammed.

I escalated to PayPal, explaining that it was a scam, and included links to Ripoff Report [https://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/specific_search/molyes] to show that there are dozens of other victims of this same scam. PayPal responded by asking that I return the tent back to China on my own dime in order to receive a refund. There are two problems with this solution...

1) The cost to return the item exceeds $69.99, so I would lose money by returning the item.
2) The return shipping address is likely fake, and the seller would claim he never got it back - so I would risk losing $69.99 + the international shipping cost.

I have decided I will go ahead and call PayPal customer service and ask to speak with a supervisor to get a refund, citing the problems above. If that doesn't work, I will try my credit card company. Will post here again with an update.

Re: LIN JINRONG

UPDATE: I have called PayPal customer service, and they have closed the case in my favor. I will receive a refund of $50 and do not have to ship the product back. While I hoped to get a full refund, I accepted this deal and am happy to write off the $20 as a lesson learned - only buy from trusted merchants.

 

I also asked him what PayPal was doing to help fight "bait and switch" scams like these, and he mentioned that each time they close a case like this, they keep a record, so the more people who phone in to complain about a scam, the faster PayPal can close these scam accounts. From the overwhelming number of complaints I see on this forum, it would seem the process still isn't fast nor efficient enough, but if you still haven't called PayPal about your case, I highly recommend you do so!

p.s. I mentioned in my OP that I would ask to speak with a supervisor. This was not necessary. The representative was very helpful.

Re: LIN JINRONG

Have the same issue with Paypal and stuck waiting to get a refund. Ordered a car DVR that was supposed to have rear camera, GPS, Android etc etc but I received a cheap pile of junk with a small display and crap resolution camera. They said I had to use DHL or UPS to send the package back as they knew well that this would cost more than the original order. I called Paypal and they said any carrier as long as it can be tracked so I used a cheaper local one to return the package but the address was Hong Kong and not China and now turns out that the address itself is bogus and LIN JINRONG is not at that address. The recipient refused the delivery. Paypal have indicated they will close and refund if the shipping company show this as the case. Still waiting. The phone calls to support and the shipping have cost far more than the f'in product but it's the principle and hope to get this account deleted but seems Paypal don't give two hoots and let it keep scamming people.

Re: LIN JINRONG

If the original shipment came to you USPS, be sure and also file a mail fraud case with usps

Re: LIN JINRONG

Yes, I'm another victim of the same car mirror camera scam, having paid $69.90 for the item advertised in the Facebook video, I subsequently received a very basic, single camera version which claims to be 1080P resolution (but I very much doubt it!) & otherwise bears no resemblance to the quoted specification, according to the customs declaration, this was valued at just $5.00. This seller is obviously an associate of Yin Menglin, as the various fraudulent sites operated by these individuals (including Wishlist, Trendstorez, Hotrait, Relifes) all seem to use the same so-called "customer service" email address. It is clear that these & numerous other sites are raking in money on an industrial scale, especially given that many appear to be "pop up" ones that are only active on Facebook for a day (hence the "flash sale" baiting of potential customers) & then taken down in an effort to remove their traceability. Whilst visiting those sites that are still active, in order to grab screen shots of the fraudulent product descriptions, banners kept flagging up every few seconds proudly proclaiming that "xxxx xxxx, from xxxxxxxx, has just bought xxxx xxxx xxxx" & thus it is evident that, as on average they are charging at least 10 times the true cost of each item, they must be making millions of dollars from this "bait & switch" operation. Sadly & to my utter annoyance, I've fallen foul of this three times now from different sites, another cheap & nasty item (also valued at $5.00) arrived last week & I'm currently awaiting  a drone, which I now know will be of similar poor quality & likely be a safety risk from an exploding charger/lithium batteries, given that it is bound to be Chinese rubbish. I currently have two cases ongoing in the Resolution Centre (& fully expect to start a third, when the drone eventually arrives), as yet, none have escalated to the dispute stage, but I'm sure this will become necessary. However, like most other victims, should I be told that I must return each item via DHL/UPS at a cost of ££50-55 & find PayPal won't refund me unless I co-operate, I shall tell them that I shall then refer matters to the UK Police Fraud Department, Trading Standards & also contact the BBC "Watchdog" consumer programme. I will be complaining that, because of all the numerous complaints about these scammers over the last few months, their PayPal accounts should have been terminated long ago &, by not doing so, it effectively means that PayPal is actually aiding & abetting crime on a massive scale.

Re: LIN JINRONG

Back at it again with MeetStore.US - this scam artist is selling smartwatches for $50. All the images on the website are stolen, they're literally Samsung Gear marketing images. Even the photo of their "team" is stolen (the employees are wearing shirts with another company's name on them.) 

 

DO NOT buy from the site.

Re: LIN JINRONG

Seems that I fell prey to this company too.  I ordered a watch and was sent one of lousy quality.  I agree that it would cost more than the watch is worth to send it back.  Haven't sent Pay-pal an e-mail yet but it seems pointless given the postings I have seen.  Guess the bad guys win again.

Re: LIN JINRONG

It's just pointless to email them or go through the process online. Call and ask for a supervisor. Stress that you checked the cost of sending it back and its much more than what you paid for the item.
