ToyGlobe.com / scam and cheating

I feel it is my moral duty to warn others about this company. I also recently spent over $100.00 on Toyglobe for a present for this coming Xmas. It is a very hard to find item so I sent for it straight away when i found it on their site I paid and waited for the promised tracking number by email. I posted an inquiry on the site asking about my delivery and asking for a tracking number as promised. I had no response until after the 3rd message I had sent using the online form.

Eventually I received a response and they apologized and said they would send a tracking number, they had posted it and I should received it in 14 days.Still no tracking number. I found a similar toy on Amazon and sent of another $100 and received it within 2 weeks no problem. Shame because it wasn't exactly the one I wanted.

I have contacted Toyglobe again, still no response. As I live in Europe, phoning them is not an option for me. After reading these articles after a Google search I have given up on the idea of ever getting the goods I paid for.

    I too have had problems with Toy Globe, firstly it makes me laugh that their warehouse is in Quebec & I get charged international shipping & I live in Ontario & yes my last item was mailed from Quebec. That order was a small figurine for my son, it took over a month, several snotty emails & phone calls before it turned up. That was October 2007. Silly me bought a couple of items from online websites for my sons birthday, Toy Globe & Toywiz. This December I ordered a Curious George toy for my daughter for Christmas, I could not remember which one was the one that was slow to ship & had very bad customer service. In both cases I did receive confirmation of order & confirmation of complaint from them, obviously just an auto response. Although when I did eventually get through to them in 2007 & spoke to someone I did get my order within days after that, they fed me some ### & ball story that it was out of stock at the time of order. All I can say is that the only repeat business they get are from woman who were pregnant & only functioning on limited braincells & whose memory as to where she ordered the first shipment from was less then clear. My advice is to never ever buy from them, if you want to throw your money away then throw it my way!

    "All shipments are insured and trackable."

    That's a lie. Jun 16? Almost 3 months?

    Let me tell you: I'm buying things about all arround the world. Even from China, the things NEVER takes longer than 2 months.

    This is my 4th e-mail. No tracking code. What this mean? I've been stolen!

    So, lets do this. You could at least send the tracking code (so I'll kknow that the product exists), or you admit that the product have not been sent yet, and GIVE BACK MY MONEY!

    Just to let you know: I have 4 free hours a day. If I have not a answer until today, I'll begin a crusade on all foruns and complains, and blogs about toys all over the internet, in 5 languages I know. No, its not a great work, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V is very fast for a message with this truth.

    And more. I have family and friends in USA and Canada, and they will look forward your company.

    Thanks!

    Was ROBBED by same Toyglobe.com website 01/28/2010 for $92.50 for order #292480. EVERYTHING about this company is BOGUS and a SCAM. I was on complaints.com and found pages of complaints from customers who was ROBBED of their money and NEVER recieved any item at all. Toyglobe.com has had this website since 2002 and is still using it currently. Investigating further I found this address of 1176 Main Street, Champlain, New York, 12919 is also used for other shipping entities with different names. The phone number (514) 332-8699 is a Montreal, Canada number which has a recording to leave you number and message and they will get back with you, NEVER. This adress and all the occupants related to this address need to be arrested for ongoing FRAUD!

    I totally agree. I have bought 90$ worth of items 2 times. And both times I have received nothing. Not even an E mail responding to the ones I sent. Action needs to be taken. They are robbing us and getting away with our money.
