I just cannot believe they are still in operation
"They are a scam.. pure and simple.. This is how they operate: You order something from their website and they simply do not deliver because they ARE NOT A REAL COMPANY. They tell you it is in back order and they give you the run around. They never return you calls and they have a policy in their website that says that they do not give money back and the order cannot be canceled once placed (what respectable company has that policy). This is how they make money: Eventually, many people just gives up and they get to keep their money. This is how they get away: The few people that do not give up, call their credit card company and do a recall of the ordered product. Once they receive a recall, they do not contest it and refund the money. Since those who do not give up do get their money back, they do not pursue any further actions and so no crime has been committed. In conclusion: DO NOT ORDER from them! They ARE NOT a real company and they will not send you any of the products that you order. IF you get tired and give up they will keep you money. If you call your credit card company and request a recall, they will give you your money back, but you would have wasted your time. "
Bordering on Fraudulent
"Product that I ordered was backordered, or at least that was what they said when I called, Month after month. They took my money, and never delivered the product or any updates on the information. They don't return emails, and their phone service goes to a message, but they never call back. "
What a bunch of thieves.
"They rented 150 of our crates and literally stole them. "
"We placed a fairly large order with them and because of us being a " new customer" we had to pay up front, well it has now been all most 8 months and they have not sent one item, they won't return messages or calls and usually won't even answer the phone. These people a very dis-honest, their business is a scam. Pretty sad. Please save your money and do not order from them."
My experience was fine
"I was worried to place an order due to the many poor reviews, but I spoke to Keely in customer service, who was very reassuring. I ordered a hard to find item (Quinine Sulfate), and she said it was in stock. It arrived in 3 days, perfect condition, exactly what I expected.I hope whatever their problems had been are over, and I will be ordering from them again."
"Purchased some items via website in August 2014 months later had not received them. After making numerous attempts at contacting them finally got a hold of someone who informed me my items had not shipped due to them being on back order. They offered to replace the back ordered items with comparable items in stock to which I agreed. Nearly a year later I still have not received my items and but they certainly received my money via PayPal. Apparently my money was received by another company named Astrimay, Inc. which also apparently has issues with fraudulent business practices."
"They are a SCAM!!! Charged my account the day I place an order (three months ago), never sent the product, and won't return my emails or phone calls. All of this makes their sappy greeting message, and bible quotes disturbing. Just called my credit card co and PayPal to get a refund. PayPal already seems to know of this problem. "
"DO NOT BUY FROM THIS WEB SITE! They will take your money, in my case, PayPal. Then they string you along past the 45-day period you have to take action and get your money back from PayPal. Once it's past the 45 days, forget it. You lose. If you search the web for "Sciencelab.com Reviews" you will see quite a few indications that these folks are scammers. One thing that really gets me is that they quote scripture in their emails as if to make it look like they are good Christians. Yeah, good Christians alright. You have been warned. DO NOT attempt to conduct business with these guys."
"Not sure what happened to this company. We previously ordered with no problems. Now we have a $200 order that hasn't shipped after we paid for it online and there are no answers to numerous emails. DON'T DO BUSINESS WITH SCIENCELAB.COM!!!!"
"Everytime I called after the order never came was the same thing ... "it just got in, we will ship tomorrow." After three calls like that I asked for a refund and to cancel the order. "All but one of the items is in and it will ship tomorrow" and "We can only give you a store credit if you cancel." Fortunately, over eight weeks had passed and my credit card company (well done VISA) took immediate action."
"Better Business Bureau rating for this company as of 7/3/12 is an 'F'. http://www.bbb.org/houston/business-reviews/petroleum-products/sciencelab-com-inc-in-humble-tx-13007572/ I ordered a product only to find out it was on back order. Canceled the order the next day and was promised a timely refund. It is now almost 14 months after the order was canceled and still no refund. I filed a complaint with Better Business Bureau and Federal Trade Commission as suggested by another review. Please take the time to do the same or save yourself the trouble and avoid doing business with ScienceLab.I continue to call and email, so far to no avail. Same story from the customer service reps every time. Stacey Tyler is the only individual who is able to issue a refund and there is no way to contact her directly nor does she have a schedule for when she will be in the office."
"I never received back ordered products, even though I was charged immediately. Luckily I reversed the credit card charges in time. Do not order from these dishonest people."
"Having the same issues as the other buyer..... ordered, back order, no response to emails or phone call..... so far no product either. I am going to try via letter but after reading the other review I am not hopeful ....."
"I ordered from this company twice: First time we ordered amber glass bttles, never received product , asked for credit but nevere received. Second time we ordered refrigerant , received a back order notice and after months of expediting requested a refund. was promised but 3 months later never received the credit. I would not reccomend doing business with this compny. Very disappointed."
"I placed an order believing the items I wanted were in stock. two days later I received an email stating that the items were on backorder and would be expected to ship in 2 to 3 weeks. I called them 5 weeks after the original order date to cancel the order and was told that the items would be received by them in the next week or two and that I wasn't permitted to cancel my order. It was apparently my fault for not cancelling the order within the first three days after placing it. The items I ordered we not so expensive that it was worth my time or energy to argue about it. If I still have not received my items within the next month or so I will have to revisit the issue and likely will need to contact my credit card company to file a complaint as it is obvious I will not receive an acceptable resolution from ScienceLab directly.I should have spent a little more time researching them as a company and ordered my items from someplace else. I was willing to spend about 25% more money on the items I wanted in an effort to support a small american owned business. If I had received my items as expected, even within the time frame of the declared backorder, I wouldn't have any complaints. Unfortunately their policies are not customer friendly and I will not be a repeat customer."
