Ripped off by batterybay.net
"On 08.01.2017 ordered a Battery for Samsung GT-P8110, GTP8110-HA32ARB, SP3496A8H, Samsung SP3496A8H(1S2P) for $52.69 + $3.99 shipping cost, Grand Total $56.68. Battery bay HK deducted $77.52 from my account 11.01.2017. I filled out the online form for a tracking code 4 times, contacted firstname.lastname@example.org twice and their customer service department once to get a tracking code and to query the extra cost and to obtain tracking code. I received no response from batterybay however did receive a bogus email from a Patricia, supposedly from Australia Post, with tracking code information on a package that was unable to be delivered. I clicked on the information button and received a severe trojan virus.I have initiated a transaction dispute with my bank and have had to replace my master card.Unfortunately when I did a quick review check, good reviews outweighed negative ones; I only wish I'd found this site earlier. I would NEVER recommend anyone buy from battery bay, and whenever the opportunity arises I will be voicing my disdain for their appalling service and rip off tactics."
"Paid huge surcharge to get DHL shipping, got email FIVE days after order claiming it shipped but no DHL tracking. Little prick refuses to provide DHL tracking number after multiple requests. Lodged claim with Paypal and awaiting a response. Will do a bank charge back if I have to."
"NEVER do business directly with any company in China / PRC, not even if you buy with a credit card. Mainland Chinese companies are run by thieves, and the credit card companies are too gutless to do chargebacks. Red China is a black hole when it comes to your money.If you buy anything made or from China, ONLY do it through third parties. Let THEM take the risk, not you."
"This company is worthless . Don't wast your money buying here. Battery lost in shipping from them and its my problem. Customer service doesn't exist at batterybay."
"DO NOT USE...BENNY IS A SCAMMER...ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE FROM AUSTRALIA....DO NOT USE....HE RIPPED ME OFF FOR TWO BATTERIES $122 AU.....AND WON'T RETURN FUNDS.BENNY SEND LOTS OF EMAILS WITH PROMISES TO REFUND ..NOTHING...SCAMMER."
"Stay away from this seller! Its a Scam ! Don't buy anything from them, you will not receive your product!!! They will promise that order will be shipped soon and BLa-Bla-Bla for weeks, but end up never sending it, so go and buy from another company , better in USA. ..."
"Good so far. Will surely buy from you again."
"A word of warning to potential customers. DO NOT BUY FROM BATTERYBAY. They are cheats and are a scam. I bought a number of items and as soon as I made payment, I was told that they had to cancel my order. My money was never refunded and they never provided a reason to why my order was cancelled.Stay away if you do not want to be cheated."
"why is it I only check for reviews after I experience a problem? Stupid! Beware that batterbay.net is really xell out of hong kong. 14 day shipping means what? It's 3 weeks and still no battery. And a slam on USBank...they won't dispute a CC charge unless it's over $50."
"I ordered 2 pairs of Sony MH1C earbuds on Feb. 25 and received some cheap MH650 substitutes 6 weeks later on April 9th. Their websites are barely functional as they don't recognize when they process a payment and their online tech support always says "offline" I was also lied to by their representatives about the shipping dates on two different occasions. I've never had an experience like this with any online transaction since the early days of eBay (2005)and I deal with all kinds of online vendors."
"guys do not order from here, been 6 weeks, paid full shipping costs to get an xperia play extended battery and they keep telling me its coming, never got a tracking number either with fastest delivery option, 45 bucks down the drain, move on, dont waste your time or just throw your money out the window. "
"I wish I had read these reviews before I spent money on batteries from this company. They sent me two batteries, one does not charge up. I sent them an email, and they responded that I could send it back (to HONG KONG from the US) for a replacement at MY EXPENSE. When I balked at that, they said they would reimburse me $2-$3 for shipping. Well, shipping is more like $16. I bought from them because they were the cheapest, but paying an additional $16 would make them the most expensive! After telling them that paying $16 to ship a defective item that THEY sent to ME was unacceptable, they told me that I could not "prove" I have a defective battery, and they could not help me. They got me, I am a battery scammer, going through all of this trouble to score a new battery...bwahaha (sarcasm). I will NEVER do business with this company again, and neither should YOU!! They need a course in good customer service, you SEND A POSTAGE LABEL TO THE CUSTOMER FOR A RETURN! Or you REIMBURSE THEM FOR THE FULL AMOUNT."
"Placed n order on 10/18/12 n to date my order was never delivered Customer service is poor with lots of poor excuses as to why my order has not been delivered!."
"Not good. Nearly a month and still no delivery. 15 days before they even started the shipping process. I will likely have to give up on this delivery and order from somewhere else."
"Ordered battery on 10-01-2012, still as of 10-23-2012 still no battery. Websight said 14 day shipping, but it has been over 3 weeks. E-mail custumer support which told me 30 days. Far cry from 14 day on websight. If you need your product Do Not order from these guys.
