Hobbywow a cautionary tale

So, I've tried to order from these guys twice now. Just small test orders 10-15$ max.

Both times they sent a tracking number almost immediately that showed up as invalid in the system.

Two months later, the tracking number never displayed as valid from HK EMS or USPS and they keep sending the same message "we will contact the shipper it takes a month to get answer".

After about the two month mark they stopped replying. Paypal refused to credit me for both sales because they have "hobbywow" listed as selling "virtual goods" even though I showed them an invoice for physical products.

Total scam!

Wintermoot, that is horrible! Well, on the bright side at least it was only $10-15 not $100-150. I knew there was something fishy about them after seeing too good to be true prices.

Hope you used credit card for that. Tell your credit card provider and they will happily reverse the charge.
