Embarrasingly admitting, I got scammed!

Have you previous dealt with ChinaEcarts.com? I did! And I’m so embarrass to say, I got scammed!  I didn’t listen to my gut feeling and trusted them.

I did my research, and didn’t see anything against them and the decision maker was this website http://top50chinadropshippers.com/comparison/#chinaecarts posted them as part of the top 50 china dropshippers?! Oh! Come on!!  I could use ChinaEcarts.com as TOP 50 SCAMMERS, maybe.  Now, I wonder if any of the list of the above link provided is legit.

Anyway, here’s my story:
December 3rd, I started dealing with Chinaecarts.com, the person I was dealing with is named Rose Kang, we don’t know if that’s her real name now.  I was very interested with their products as I’m starting my new online shop. I asked questions about their process and their wholesale rate. They sounded very legit and trustworthy, or maybe I was just blinded by their low prices (which they already updated as we speak) so I chose them as my supplier.
December 5th, 2009, I went ahead and I made my trial order to make sure they are legit. It was just a small order amounting to $61.00, I said it wont make a damage if I loose a small amount.  It arrived on December 8th,  2009. Yippee! I got so excited as I thought I got an honest supplier,  everything I expected came.  I haven’t tested them yet though as they are gifts for mychildren and I’m waiting for Christmas  for them to be opened  and crossing my fingers, I hope they will not disappoint my children.   My very first Christmas to sweat if my gift will work or not.

My second order consisted of 4 items, my order was dated December 8th, after I received my trial order, It’s worth $529.92. I ordered 3 Wii accessories; additional gifts for my children and an iPhone 3GS 16GB for me, that package was received last December 11th.  All items was received but the iPhone 3GS that they claimed to be original was a COUNTERFEIT!  All the excitement I had just went “swoosh!” gone!

I immediately send an email to Rose Kang and told her that they delivered a fake iPhone, she replied back and said it will be replaced and said their packer maybe made a mistake.  She gave me another hope.

I continue to get intouch with them to follow up of the “replacement”,  tried to get ahold of them through normal channels, email, phone and chat… but I’m now unlucky to get any response.

I’ve posted a comment on their website and they are just deleting it, so I know they are getting my messages.

This is is my inspiration to start this blog and hopefully to warn others.  If you have dealt with ChinaEcarts.com, give us your story.  If you got scammed by other companies post them in my other blog http://stopscammers.wordpress.com/

I will be posting our conversations and transactions on my next articles. Viewers, feel free to point out the redflag I didn’t notice and hopefully others will learn from my mistakes.

    Honestly, victims should not be embarrassed but them, the people who’s doing the wrong thing. Shame on them, let’s all name them.

    Damn

    Why didn’t I see this artice before.

    I just got scammed too, same thing, small trial order went perfectly. As soon as I placed an order for an expensive phone +$300 thats when it all went down hill. The wrong phone turned up, nothing like the one I ordered, poorly built and completely different. They have not answered any of my emails at all except an email I sent from another fake gmail account enquiring about stock of an item. (This was answered swiftly indeed.)

    Two weeks later I finally got someone on their chat facility. They agreed someone had made a mistake and packed me the wrong phone accidently.

    “We will send another one very timely!” was the response.
    “Do you want to buy the phone we already send?”.
    “No thanks” I said, Once bitten twice shy I thought.

    Funnily enough I have not received a tracking number or parcel with this new phone and still waiting, now 2 weeks. They wont chat to me again or answer emails funnily enough.

    I try to look at the bright side, they could have sent nothing at all I suppose. I still intend to pester them btw.

    Oh yeah, the persons name was Bule Chen.

    Another thing, everytime I try to call them I get some Chinese on hold music.

    Thanks for giving me somewhere to vent.

      I appreciate you sharing your experience. I hope others will read our posts and be warned by this public service. People like them must be exposed, I can’t believe that there are people out there making a living by these scam. It’s basically stealing out of our pocket. Well that’s reality, yeah?

    Commissioned in late April 2012 zopo zp200. Instead, ordered the phone in the package in its original box from HTC EVO 3D (?), The phone was “B72M Andriod 2.3.5 MTK6573” with a faint inscription on the back cover “Zopo”. Of course they immediately unsubscribed. Long silence, then asked to return their phone. After receiving his general store has stopped all possible communication. In the letter, and even chatting silence. Fraudsters such cases, according to the reviews, they have full, sorry about that learned only after placing your order.
