Bidz.com - scam artist seller
In 2006, I won in an auction from Bidz Israel, what was described as a silver and peridot necklace. The item didn't arrive within a reasonable amount of time and so I contacted the seller to ask for tracking information for my shipment. He gave me a phoney tracking number, so I contacted him and let him know that I was unable to track the item. He asked me to give it another week or two and to contact him again if the necklace hadn't arrived. Two weeks later, I still had no necklace, so I contacted the seller. He didn't respond, so I went to apply for a refund from PayPal. It turned out that this scammer used delaying tactics, knowing that I would not be able to receive a PayPal refund, since the transaction by this time was more than 6 weeks old. I contacted Bidz to make a complaint, and what did they tell me? To contact the seller! The seller by this time was no longer responding to my demands for either a refund or a new item to be sent to me. To be honest, I don't think there was ever an item to begin with. I lost nearly $100 on that scam. I don't expect restitution at this point, but am just writing this to warn others. Also, I purchased what was described as a gemstone necklace made from "gemstone chips" of citrine, peridot, etc. What I got was a colored glass necklace, which faded after two years of use - not worth at all what I paid for it. I have received some nice items from Bidz, but now will never do business with them again for their lack of vigilance for scammers on their site, and the questionable quality of their products.
Bidz.com - conspiculously deficient of quality
I saw adverts for bidz dot com all over the net and thought that I would check it out. I googled it to see if I could find any negative implications but all that came up was more ads. I totally got duped I believed the 100% risk free auction. In any event once I received the packages I took one of the bracelets out of the package (supposedly a gold/ruby diamond bracelet) and my boyfriend started laughing! He said that it looked like bronze and the rubies didn't even look real. It was very light and there is nooo way that it is worth the $2000 retail they advertise. Honestly it was truly embarrassing to show my purchased jewellery to friends and family when they prompted me to see it. Everyone that saw it said that it looked fake cheap and truly; like jewellery compatible of a gumball machine. In total I purchased two bracelets and three rings. I paid nearly $1700 I may have well flushed my money down the drain. Every single piece was defective as the gems fell out merely by handling them. Quite honestly the next time I attempt to check a business credentials I'll put fraud/scam in the toolbar beside the name. I think bidz dot com has so many different adverts on search engines to bombard the consumer and sway possible negative ads from being foreseen. I only hope people will see comments such as these before thinking about purchasing from these scam artists.
Bidz.com - return items
In general, the items from them are not high quality. The chains offered with the pendants are very thin--you can’t use it. The earring I brought was sent not a pair. So I returned it. I didn't get the full refund because they didn't see the problem even I told them what to look (they both for one side), they said they didn’t see the problem(it’s a pair). So I had to pay unfair restocking fee and couldn't get the shipping refund according to the policy, I had spend two hours talking to the people on-line (they don't talk to you through phone call) I wish I had taken a picture of the earring, but I thought even a kids can see it's not a pair---all unexpected happened. I have brought other items from them too. They were just not as good as you expected. It’s hard to return them because it cost you big. I am quitting visit the site and advise you look carefully before you buy any item from it.
Bidz.com - fake and super low quality!
Looks great, sounds great, great price with prices below retail and fully guaranteed!... Not so fast!
Worst quality I have ever seen and would expect to see merchandise in the dollar store. Fake watches, fake everything. They claim it is sterling silver... my professional laughed at what I had purchased and said "you got ripped off". OK I can return it... only if I pay for shipping and a 15% restocking fee. I will attempt to return this crappy jewelry.
I sell on ebay and would NEVER even attempt to sell this stuff. IT is BAD!
Bidz.com - defective watch
My husband won a bid on a GREAT watch that I love. The problem is it is defective. We did not test it since it was a Christmas present. Be sure to check the return policy and test everything you buy from BIDZ. We took the watch to a jewelry store hoping that it was just the battery but we were not that lucky. It is a shame that the company will not stand behind their products.
We won four auctions. We really enjoyed the site until this happened. Beware and check everything you buy. They give you 15 days for returns and do not make exchanges for defective merchandise. The postage is on you too.
