I placed an order through YAHOO stores from a coffee maker. The store also masquerades under the names of ismartshoppe and Celebrity Appliance. Charges appeared on my credit card and I have yet to hear from anyone. The one email I did received as confirmation indicated the product would be sent in 2-3 days.

I called my credit card company to initiate appropriate action. My CC Company provided me a contact phone number and as expected, the phone number has been disconnected. The web site phone number re-directs calls to a National Directory Service and wants $5.00 to talk to someone. Another Scam I presume.

In summary, DO NOT BELIEVE yahoo stores are 100% safe and personally I will avoid them from now on.

    0 Votes - Charged credit card, never sent item!
    United States

    I placed my order on Sunday and received to confirmation emails stating the item would ship within 2-3 days. On Monday they charged my card. After several days of no email confirming my shipping, I sent an email requesting a status on my item. No response. A week later I sent 3 more emails with no response. I have just put in a dispute to my credit card, since it doesn't seem like I am ever going to get a response or my item.

    0 Votes - Phoney online store
    United States

    This is not a legit website. Just a site to take your money and run. How do these sites keep online? Where are the Cyber Police when you need them. I got ripped off!!

    I searched and searched for a good price for my son's first birthday present. I thought I had found it with I should have known something was strange with all the different names the phoney online company threw around. I placed the order and never received it, I emailed every email link I could find on the website. All were returned due to no server response or no such mailbox. I called the telephone number listed only to be told to call an international number. I found all the helpful complaint info after the fact. Needless to say a difficult lesson to learn about online shopping.

    I placed an order 11/10/06..waited about 5 days and NOTHING! I emailed three of the many 'email' accounts they have listed and did not receive a reply. Luckily, I was not charged and just canceled my debit card. THEY ARE SCAMMERS!!!! BEWARE!!! I will be doing further research on this so called 'company' and will post any useful information.

    0 Votes - Item never shipped/received
    United States

    I made an on-line purchase on 12/02/2006 but never received it. I sent the first email around 12/15 asking where it was and wanting postage information, I have sent 3 additional ones but have not even got a reply. I looked everywhere on the website and there is no 800 phone number (of course). This is ridiculous, how can they still post a Web site when they are delivering nothing. What options do I have ? I just want what I paid for.

    I also made a large purchase from December 2, 2006. The item never shipped and the link to UPS reveals NO item shipped. Of course, no 800 number is listed. This is a PURE online scam.
    Are there any options?
