I got ripped off @ Amazon.com
yeah you read me right. i never thought it would happen myself but i got ripped off, BIG TIME when i ordered at amazon.com
It all started with this –
I couldnt find this buzz lightyear anywhere in malaysia , so i decided to search for it on amazon and voila! i found it
Then i double checked the product description : yup…it all checks out.
So i ordered two units, paid an extra USD 90 to have it shipped (because amazon dont ship to Malaysia) and when i received the unit today…i was totally puzzled…
1) The packaging is different
This is the packaging shown on amazon :
And this was the actual product i got
I told myself, maybe the packaging is different ? i opened it up and then i realised that the certificate is also missing . Then it all went downhill from here….the toy didnt perform anything at all that the product description stated on amazon. ( no talking mode, no talkback mode and also no level sensor).
Worst thing of , i paid USD$ 44 for this item and guess what was listed on the box ? it was only USD$24.50 STREET PRICE in USA!!! WTF!!
I am now in the midst of sorting this out with amazon. one thing is for sure, i wont be shipping this item back to USA as it will cost me a bomb! Granted, this item was sold by amazon’s reseller thenewmall (after my complain, they change their name to STL PRO INC.
