Hot In the sale Saved from being scammed Internet
I was saved from doing business with the " company" only because of the careful help from Western Union.
When I was trying to make payment they put my transaction on hold. I then was switched to two differnent representative with WU. After speaking with a manger he told me I needed to get the birth date of the person I was sending the money to. I thought ok now this is really weird. I told him it was for an online China store. He said he understood this but in order for him to send the funds to this Fei Li in China I needed to get a birth day to ensure he was the correct person that was to pick up the fund.
I tried to contact them by their support email, then live chat several times, and like everyone else they do not answer. I then contacted Western Union again to cancel the transaction and was told that they were sure this was the same person they had on their scam list. [continued below]....
After canceling the transaction with them I then tried to locate the camera I was wanting to order with another wholesaler. I saw at least 3 websites that looked almost exacltly like Hot In The Sale.com. The only diference was the colors of they used. Then I noticed that the same names for their live chat was on each website so they all had to be the same.
Each site has different URLs but when you bring the sites up they are the same layout, different colored themes but notice the live chat.. They all have the same "live names" to chat with. Jacky, Marie Mason, James Kelly, William Clark, Shantee, Richard, Taphne. I have tried all day to contact someone and that is why I noticed that the same names would come up on live chat rotating every few hours or so.
Ok I just looked up some of these sties.
I can not absolutely swear that these companies are all the same but why else would they all have the same same live chat personel as hot in the sale?
Best Choice Camera does not look the same as these other 3 but there display for the camera I wanted, all looks the same, with similar prices. There is no live chat to try to compare to and I did look for reveiws for this site and it appears they also are scamming people.
My advise on any of these online sites is if they don't contact you and don't reply to their support emails then just don't use them.
