"Conned" by online buying

I wonder how many of u out there order/buy things online? Just a piece of advice, never order from this website:



Seller's Name: Md Adlin Abu Bakar
Seller's Email: isam@berrybunchbox.com
Boxkeeper name: Sherry Anis

I just received a message from my sister, June. She felt she was 'conned' by this "BERRYBUNCHBOX". On 13th August, she ordered some stuffs thru this website and paid USD73.89 plus delivery charges and was to be delivered to someone in KL on 15th. After 15th, no news, she emailed the person and was told to allow them more time. Fine, they were given 2 days to deliver the stuffs. After 2 days, still no news, June emailed them again, this time no reply. There were n
o phone numbers to contact. She emailed a few times but din get any replies. Sensing something was wrong, she contacted paypal (cos she paid thru paypal). Paypal promised to investigate. So June waited until she received this message from paypal today:

"We have completed our investigation of this case. We attempted to process a refund from the seller's account to your account. Unfortunately, the seller's account does not contain the funds necessary to cover this refund. We were able to recover $0.84 USD. We have taken action against the seller and are working to recover the remainder of your refund. We will contact when we have more information."

TNS lor, NO MONEY IN THE SELLER'S ACCOUNT! Only recovered USD0.84! Is June going to recover her full refund? Money's not really the big problem but to be 'conned' of about RM259 ......

Those ppl are still updating their website cos we noted different special items are on the list compared to the time we went in to check. Shows dat these 'CONPERSONS' are still up to their business - 'conning' ppl out there!!!

I'm not saying all online sellers are 'bad eggs' but, fellow bloggers, do be careful the next time u do online purchasing!!!!

You can make a police report. Let the police make an investigation. It is a malaysian site.

Michelle - Thank u so much for the info, really helped a lot. I've given the info to June and she has contacted paypal and the bank in HKG and they will do the necessary procedures to help June. She had filled in a dispute form from the bank.

Magictree - Ya ya, I'm sure everyone hates cheaters.

Mumsgather - I was so angry and disappointed when June told me about what happened and I immediatetely wrote the post.

She said she had dealt with so many online purchasing but just couldn't imagine she would be 'conned' by a M'sian website.

Ginie - Paypal was kind enough to investigate and I guess it was after June and we over here 'hantam' them *heehee*.

We are going to make sure dat this Berrybunch is going to have a hard time and if possible make them 'vanish' them from the website.
