I purchased a HUNTING/SPORT WATERPROOF ANTI BARK DOG REMOTE TRAINING SHOCK COLLAR FOR 2 DOGS, aka Elite-Tek ET9898 Multi-Functional(Vibration/Ultrasonic/Shock/Sound/Auto Anti-Bark)600 yard Electronic Remote Dog Training Collar for TWO Dogs from Lin Wang on Ebay.
From the moment I got them, I was unimpressed with the quality. There was scratches on the receiver, and the on buttons had fingernail marks on them.
I tried to turn them on, and only one receiver worked. After trying for a while, I emailed Lin, and asked for a refund, as they were not functioning properly. She told me to try again. I should have listened to my gut, and returned them, but gave her the benefit of the doubt.
Exactly 2 weeks later, after trying to get the collars to function properly, I contacted the seller again. I told her the issues I was having - one receiver was very hard to turn on. That same receiver did not respond properly to the remote, and would 7/10 times, vibrate or chirp 10 to 30 seconds later than the other receiver. Obviously, this defeats the purpose of a training collar.
I asked again for a refund. I was told that there was nothing wrong with the collars, but if I wanted, I could return them for resale, and pay for shipping and a handling charge. I reiterated that they were defective, but did not hear back.
A few days later, my personal life imploded. My family went in to survival mode for a few weeks. As soon as everything stabilized, I immediately contacted Lin, and told her that I had put the defective collars in the mail, explained why I had taken 5 weeks since the last contact to do so, apologized profusely, and thanked her for her understanding.
She contacted me through email a few days later, said she received the collars, called me a liar, and BILLED me 9.99 to send them back to me.
I contacted Ebay, and they said they would file a report against her, and I ended up, after many emails back and forth, going to my bank and having the charges reversed. I feel that this seller is a fraud, and a scam artist, and is clearly purchasing cheap chinese made products and selling them as high quality items for a profit. I reiterate everything that Allgone said about the same seller.
