Money taken from my credit card!! 2 replies,2447 views

#1

Hi Folks,

I want to ask if this is normal...

I corrisponded with a seller, we struck a deal, he begrudgingly agreeded to ESCROW, I placed and order via ESCROW and the seller changed his mind and said w didn't want to do ESCROW - so my order is still sat there in limbo. (I asked alibaba how to cancel it twice but never had a reply). I reported the seller to Alibaba as recommended for the ESCROW issue... no reply.

Anyway - I then notice £5 or so taken from my credit card from "AliExress Dover DE".

Is this normal? What is this for please? My transaction is still sat waiting to expire.

Thanks

RSW

ATTENTION...................NEVER MENTIONED BEFORE!!!! Dear friends. Like hundreds of others, i have also been a fraud victim by one of the sellers in Aliexpress site. After making an inquiry, i realized that there must be tons of fraud sellers in here. For example, for one item which i was searching, All 7 sellers providing this thing, ALL DIRECTLY REFUSED TO BE PAID BY ESCROW. So, i reported my case and for days now my payment is frozen and under "investigation"................ Well, i made some thoughts and also i read from some people, that the existance of fraud sellers in Alibaba's-Aliexpress's-Escrow's site, is not their will and fault. Well.............................i am afraid that they encourage this system and i will explain why. I paid in Euro. So someone converts my money to usd and if and when, i will be refund, they will convert again from usd to euro. Of course my money are staying on their hands for at least few weeks, as long the "investigation" takes place! Now, consinder all these conversions of all MY, YOURS, EVERYBODIES MONEY, how much profit give to them!!!!!!!!!! I do not know who but someone is making biiiiiig money from all these conversions for the fraud transactions. Think about it. Other, vastly bigger e-shopping sites, have the ways to control their sellers and nothing happens and this site is like a nest for them. If they realy wanted to get rid of them, they could ask for a Guarantee deposit of an amount from the sellers, so in case of fraud, penalties could be paid by them and everybody would think twice to play this game again. But noooooooo.............. So use your common sense and tell me if you do not suspect that Alibaba-Aliexpress-Escrow are not deliberately involved in this trick. Do not ask me, you will make the conclusions. Please, the only way to protect rest of the people from loosing their money too, is to pass on this message and never use Alibaba's-Aliexpress's-Escrow's sites again. This way we will make them to get a real job and stop cheating innocent people which had the bad luck to trust them. With compassion the other fellow victims. Regards Cris.
