Live Link TV Inc is a scamming website. I purchased a tv on their website and I was wondering if this was a scam site or not. (Seemed to good to be true, ya, I know the saying, but you always hope it is the real deal)
I selected to pay with credit card and everything looked good. Then I got an email telling me to send them money through Western Union. I called Western Union and found out I am not covered in any way if I do that.
I emailed Live Link TV Inc telling them that I was not going to pay them that way. I needed a secure form of payment. They said I could pay them with Paypal through a Credit card. I researched it and found that I would be double secure if I payed through paypal with a credit card. So this is what I did. Then Live Link TV Inc told me to send them a confirmation of the payment. Which is wierd because Paypal would have already sent them that. So I did anyway, and they said they had confirmation of my payment and my TV would ship in 24-72 hrs.
After a week and multiple emails back and forth, them telling me I would get a tracking number as soon as it was picked up by UPS, I still had no tracking number. So, I emailed again and said I want a tracking number right now or my money back right now. I am waiting no longer. I was told they would refund my money. Nothing else was in that email, no explination as to why they were not sending my TV or anything. I said I want the refund today, they asked for my paypal information again. Which is also odd because they had it from when I paid them.
I still didn't get my refund that day so I emailed them again. I was told they would process my refund and I should get it in another 24-72 hrs. I said I have been told that before, and if I don't get it by tomorrow morning I would be filing a complaint through my credit card company as well as Paypal. They actually begged me in the next email to not do that. They said I would get my refund and then even asked if they accidentally refunded to much money, if I would return it to them through Western Union. I'm not sure how that makes any sense. Must be another scam I am not aware of.
So then I called to find out what is going on. They told me I had to purchase a minimum of 15 TV's at a time that is why they cancled my order. I said it doesn't say that anywhere on the website, and I saw the quantity available, drop by 1 on their website the day before. I said, I either want a tracking number, or my refund by tomorrow morning or I would file the complaints. The guy actually begged me not to do that and said "he would make me a deal" I said what kind of a deal. He said he would give me a deal on a TV. I said I already made a purchase of a TV through you guys and it fell through. I said I just want my money back, and I am filing a complaint. He again begged me to not do that and said he doesn't want to tarnish the company's name.
Well, I think it is time for this scamming website to go away. I saw the exact same website with a different name popped up this morning as well. - http://www.elegantimportsinc.com/# Elegant Import Inc is what the name on the website says (they even forgot the "s" on imports from their website address and google listing - Selling the same stuff at an even lower price, and they were both at the top of the list on Google Shopping. Now tonight I checked and neither of them show up. Odd huh? Steer clear of these guys. They are not a real company and are just trying to steal your money.
