If I Ordered Something From The Website

What do I do if I ordered something from a FAKE website?!?

100% scam.

That is a fake website pretending to sell cheap merchandise.

Any site that advertises merchandise cheaper than the official manufacture's website is a fake site shipping gosh awful crappy knock-offs or simply collecting cash and not even bothering to ship fakes.

The pictures on the site look like the real merchandise because those pictures ARE of the official merchandise. Those pictures were stolen from the official manufacture's website. If you receive anything at all, which is doubtful, it will not resemble those pretty pictures at all.

The one, lone payment option says it all, Visa, through a third party software and website.

Visa, through a third party software and website. Good luck getting a reply from the original site or that payment processor when your credit card is charged again and again by that site and others for months or years from now. That site and payment processor could be shut down for fraud by the time you realize you were scammed, then you have no way to get your money back.

If the site is still around, then your bank might be able to get some of your money back, eventually, if you fill out lots of paperwork for the charge back procedure. However, some banks won't even try to get your money back once they realize you attempted to purchase cheap knock-off merchandise from some Chinese website. Purchasing or just trying to buy replica, fake merchandise is against the law.

In all seriousness, when something goes wrong, what will you do? Send an email that is ignored and blocked? Send chat requests until you are ip banned? Call internationally and speak fluent Chinese?

That site only ships with EMS, the Chinese post office, good luck getting the "tracking number" they give you to work on the EMS website. You will need even more luck trying to contact EMS when your tracking stops and your "package" is lost somewhere.

You could then be really lucky, your "package" is discovered, seized by "customs" and all you need to do is pay even more money via Western Union or moneygram to the "custom's official" who uses a free email address just like that site has a free email address as its contact information.

Free email addresses are easy to open and close completely anonymously.

I want to order something from this website www.taoyizu.com i want to know if it real or a fake store?

The only way is to look at reviews. From looking at them, they are not a very legitmate site, and are accused with taking money but not sending the products.

Here are the reviews

Can I order something from a UK website and get it shipped to my house if I live in the US?

eBay has all different and individual vendors and sellers, some ship overseas and some don't. Just check with the supplier you're interested in to see if they ship to the US. Since it's a UK website you must pay in British pound, so you need to use a card that lets you pay in foreign currency.

If I ordered something online on sunday and it's 2 day shipping..?

Nothing ships on Sundays. It will go out tomorrow and you will have it Wednesday. Amazon.com even ships the following day [Tuesday] and you get it overnight [Wednesday] for a total of two days.

If I use my debit card to buy something, can my parents find out the history of my shopping?

If they have access to your account statement then yes, they definitely can. But there is a catch here. If your purchases are mainly online, keep in mind that often the real merchant name is not displayed on the statement.For example, let's say you buy some DVDs from an online store. It is not necessary that the online store's name will appear on the statement. It is very likely that the payment processor's name will appear. For example, "XYZ Payment services".And if you are buying stuff from a website which stocks several things, then the website's name will appear and the statement will not really reflect which product you bought. If you buy a set of DVDs from Flipkart, the statement will show "Flipkart" (or probably "WS Retail", don't exactly remember).

What is the best thing to do when you ordered something online to the wrong address and it has already arrived at that address?

Put it in to the seller ASAPIf it’s amazon you’ll get another one regardless if the person who accidentally got it returns the item.If it’s not amazon hopefully they wrong recipient sends it back and you get it once it’s returned.Beg apologize offer to pay for shipping anything to get the seller to give you another one without rebuying it.Next time check the address before hitting submit

What if I ordered something online at a bargain price and it said 'in stock', and then the site inform you later that the item was sold out?

Assuming you mean a bargain price as in ‘lower than everyone else in the market’, rather than just ‘a good deal’. Like an iPhone for $20 or something similar.I’ve been on both sides of this situation - the retailer’s and the customer’s. Essentially, just as when a bank makes a mistake and puts too much money in your account, this isn’t something you will profit from. The retailer isn’t doing anything illegal.Seeing it from the retailer’s point of view, if they were legally obliged to honour a pricing mistake that lost them tens of thousands of dollars, it could quickly put them out of business. Imagine hundreds of other people had seen the same offer and bought it? You might argue “Well, they shouldn’t have made the mistake! They deserve to go out of business!”. Is that what you’d want, if you ran a business?As a customer it’s frustrating, but in general only if you buy into offers that are too good to be true. See something way below RRP and you might start to question a) How the retailer is making money from this and b) Why they are wanting to sell it at a loss? Hunting for bargains requires you to take business practices into account, rather than just finding the very cheapest price going - all may not be what it seems.The idea is that the price advertised is what you as the consumer is ‘offering’ the retailer for a product, the retailer can choose to accept or deny your order. They can cancel your order for any reason whatsoever - suspected fraud, a stock discrepancy or any other reason.

If I ordered something online on Sunday and got 2nd day shipping, when will it get here?

Sundays or not business days. Shipping days are the same as business days.

This means that the order will only be filed and shipped on Monday, with the continuation of Tuesday shipping. The order should arrive by Tuesday or Wednesday.

If I order something from an online store (Ebay, Flipkart etc) and it gets delivered, can I just open the box on the spot, check the electronics and then pay (COD)? Or is it awkward?

Not it is not awkward as a matter of fact COD is a means where you pay on arrival after you see the goods and you are satisfied.  However this is India and every company tries to alter the way it is supposed to be treated.  I prefer paying by debit card or Pay U Money only.  This way the transaction is safe and is covered by Visa and Pay U Money features.  if the product is not what you like you can raise a chargeback and you are 99.9% likely to get your money back if you have read the description and ordered an item and it is not as per the description.
