Dropshipland / Scam
I have been suckered into a scam on the net that I would like to share and warn all people about.It involves promises by the above mentioned firms (who incidenataly I think are the same company.
First you are given promises, offers and assurances of vast profits by dropshipland at quite a cost, but are given goods to sell on independant auctions, you are also given options to buy a website .Remember before you buy the website you have already paid 74 quid odd as a subsrciption to gain access to 4500 items to sell as you see fit.
The website costs AT LEAST another 60 quid, thinking that you have previously subscribed for an offer where all wares are available for you to sell, you are then offered further products to sell in the same catories that you have previously already subscribed to, there is a choice of at least ten categories where you will have to pay a further £25 pound for each of these.
But wait, on the original page you are told you will be given valuable information to improve your sales techniques once you have purchased your site .How much are you supposed to pay for FREE info, another wonderful add inside their site is recieve google adwords free, pay only 24 .95.Again how much is free info supposed to cost lol.
Believe me thats not all, I bought the website and chose my web address and extension, That was two days ago.I was promised it would be up and running within 30 mins, ha.
There`s more tried to phone them this morning 9, 00am sharp I was still listening to their message at 9.50am on an 0844 number.
I`m usually a very cynical person about these internet operations, but this lot seemed above board and their advertising is very convincing. Dropshipland are not about your profits, believe me, you are constantly bombarded with offers to "help improve". Thankfully once I entered the website sales area I have`nt gone anyfurther or spent any more money on their "products" due to the poor customer support they offer.
One last thing that I think is vital to tell you, I recieved sales on my auction site, where I have been a member for over ten years, on seven items in the dropshipland catalogue, none of the seven items were available for sale when I went to purchase them for my customers.I contacted them through e-mail and was told that their catalogue update software was faulty and that I should just use the listing options.
Some people might say that Dropshipland are just showing good salesmanship
and pushing their product, but I doubt very much if their product exists.Or if it does it is only for their benefit and not you; their potential customer.
