Online Shopping SCAM

Im gonna give u a guide for online shopping. ( i've learnt it the hard way obviously )

As reference from : http://www.onguardonline.gov/topics/online-shopping.aspx,
Shopping on the Internet can be economical, convenient, and no less safe than shopping in a store or by mail. To help keep your online shopping experience a safe one:


Know who you're dealing with. Confirm the online seller's physical address and phone number in case you have questions or problems.
Know exactly what you're buying. Read the seller's description of the product closely, especially the fine print.
Know what it will cost. Factor shipping and handling — along with your needs and budget — into the total cost of the order.
Pay by credit or charge card, for maximum consumer protections.
Check out the terms of the deal, like refund policies and delivery dates.
Print and save records of your online transactions.



==================================================================================

with this, u are pretty much safe.

I got cheated by: www.e-resist.blogspot.com
I order 2 shirts and 2 cargo pants, of which, 2pants were out of stock, so i asked for refunds. and that s*utbag used delaying-tactics against me, til now, its been dragging overa mth, and he didnt reply me.

OF THE 2 SHIRTS I'VE RECEIVED, 1 WAS EXTREMELY SMALL FOR A MEDIUM SIZE, ANOTHER HAD EXTREMELY LOUSY QUALITY. SO MUCH FOR THE "AUTHENTICITY".

You guys can go take a look, cause the pics from his blog werent real, its from the main webby of the real deal.

All in all, ive been scammed 100 odd. So fishy webby like this aint worth the trust we give them. ALWAYS, and i mean ALWAYS, ask for their number.

For me, my only lead is his POSB savings acct no, You guys tink its possible to hunt him down? will CASE or police give a damm sh*t abt my case ?
Im perfectlty alrite abt the money, but is the service, the trust, the lie, the deception, all boils blood down my spine. arghh

So, a lesson for you guys. ALWAYS KNOW WHO U ARE DEALING WITH.

upz for awareness.


blogshops like this often sell imitation and factory rejects from China. and they earn damn alot, if u go and see taobao, search the AnF, its like 10 sing only lor. can buy thru spree instead.

up for sticky and one on MO forum. sometimes i prefer to online shop in HWZ MO corner. the user has to be Deluxe and will need reputation(be it in MO corner or EDMW or HWZ as a whole)

and i will see if fellow members join in, thus got the "public" to back me up.

other then that, i am happy with what ever clothes i can find, be it at the normal price or very common in sg.

feel for u, do take some action, try to track the guy down, just head down to a POSB/DBS and ask if u can get any info on him, if not possible then report to the police and see if they can extract more info.

Most probably you have to file a police report...once you have done so...can scan the thing and email it to them la. See if they will do anything
