UK online scamming

Submitted by luxurylifting in Shoplifting


So I was wondering whether any of you have any experience with online scamming.

I’ve been doing it for a while and played it really safe, split orders and order lots of random stuff to bulk up the weight and then contact customer service and they refund me. I am worried that they may do something, H&* I think have banned my account (I know they won’t allow me any more refunds for “item is missing”) but I started another one and am planning one last order before abandoning (and maybe another for HMx Moschin).

I tried Ch*nel and was freaked out because they said they had imaging in their warehouse so I pretended the line broke up and they rang me to call back. So I filed a V1sa dispute and should (hopefully) get my money back, if not i’ll Return the item.

just any tips and advice, is this something heard of?

Your best bet for this sort of thing is Amazon. While they will ban your account after a lot of returns, their A-to-Z policy fairly well guarantees you refunds easily until that occurs. Especially if you get packages delivered without signature (which happens where I live a LOT, they just leave it at the door). You can then claim 'you didn't get it', and you'll get a refund, or another item.

I have tried Amazon but I’m only going to do it for a Dyson hairdryer, the only reason being my dad runs a business and it could get the address banned (that’s my worry).

um PayPal disputes seem to work okay alongside chargebacks.

Any other stores?

Thanks by the way!
