Be very careful when ordering form Hobby King!

Hi Everybody,

I ordered a back-order item from Hobby King and then cancel it because I didn't want to wait forever. To my surprise I discovered they had included a gift item into my order without me knowing about it. The item was a goofy sticker which I never requested and that I wasn't able to cancel because they had it in stock... It seems the catch is: if you ever cancel the back-order item, the other goofy item goes out the door immediately so they keep the money of the whole order shipment in their pockets... How about that guys?

Apparently, if you don't want to get hit by this little trick of the goofy item, you have to cancel the whole order...

One more lesson to learn about buying from the far-east...

Be careful when buying HK!

wow, thanks for the heads up. Just so I understand here, you paid your money, attempted to cancel the order and now they wont "allow" you because of the free sticker?

Seems like there should be a quick easy way to fix this, dont you think? Is there a number to call or an email address that someone could help you?

Good luck.

Legally they cant , a free item is a free item and not included in any "paid" for transaction.

If you paid by Paypal contact them immediately
If you paid by CC contact them immediately

Ive had this same sort of problem with these jokers before , they lost.
