I have fallen victim to www.globalreplica.com recently to their online Rolex watch scam in which I am out $440. These people are evil and twisted! They need to rot in prison!
On November 3, 2005, I ordered 1 Rolex watch. The payment option on their site is either credit card or COD. I opted the cc route thinking that if it is a scam I can dispute the charges and have to cc company prosecute if necessary. About a week went by and I received an email from GlobalReplica stating that there was a problem with my cc transaction and to call Ryan Thompson, Sales Manager at this number (917) 346 4063. It took about a week to do so since his voice mailbox was always full and unable to leave message. That should have been my first clue. I finally got through and when I asked why his mailbox is always full, he responded that there are 3 different salesmen and they do about 200 order requests a day. I was encouraged to do a COD transaction payable to John Frank which included 2-day air delivery at no charge. I have never ordered COD in my life before because of the above stated cc protection. But Ryan sounded reputable over the phone so I proceeded.
As he had committed, my watch did arrive 2-day FedEx on November 15th. However, the watches were no where close to what I had ordered in which we had discussed 2 days before. This should have been my 2nd clue. The package included return information to the attention of Mark Shilling at 1710 First Ave. #283, NY, NY 10128, should I be dissatisfied. I left many phone calls to Ryan stating what had happened and promptly returned the watches on November 17 via 2-day air thinking this would speed up the order. I also sent numerous emails to email@example.com inquiring on status, but they were left unanswered, (my 3rd clue). I found 2 other telephone numbers to call regarding orders to GlobalReplica, 609/247-1991 and 347/220-3417. Unfortunately they too were either not receiving telephone calls at the moment or mailbox was full.
It is now going on 12 weeks and no watches or refund. I have call the Ney York Attorney General's office and filed a fraud complaint against them. Any other suggestions out there? They should be fined and thrown in jail for deceiving innocent victims.
