    This it what shopify do to bad businesses.

    click frenzy committed the fraud so shopify step away because of the bad rep

      Hey buddy Im seriously considering going this route, Have you lodged your complaint? I understand that using the search page wasn't the method they wanted people to use but they could have easily denied access to it instead of setting up fake products with a purchase option…..

  •  

    Checked my two orders, I'm pretty sure the PS4 one is legit. They're pretty blunt. "Fraud", really?

    Order Cancelled on November 21, 2016
    Reason: fraud

    Is this legit - "New-Look 500GB PlayStation 4 Console T10" - because I clicked the banner and got an error, hit back on the browser and clicked the banner again, and was apparently able to complete the transaction.

    What THE F*** they just cancelled my two definite legit orders. I woke up at 6am for PS4 and the day before for I won the Apple TV they just cancelled that one too as fraud.

    ORDER #1150
    Your order has been cancelled
    Order #1150 was canceled because it is suspected to be fraudulent, in that you have used means other than those advertised to customers to access this product, and your conduct has breached the terms and conditions of Click Frenzy. .

    They are big time scammers!! OZB must bann the ClickFrenzy website. I thought they are going to fulfill the legit orders at least.

  •  

    Anyone who only has legit orders on ur account? I assume they cancel all ur orders if you have one non legit one?!

    •  

      My guess is that if you've won more than 1 item then they think you used a bot or script of some sort. They've asked me if I could send them proof of checkout and the banner, which luckily I took screenshots of otherwise I would've been instantly been labelled a scammer from the first reply :-(

      •  

        Funny that we hav to provide proof to them. As if we're meant to be recording the whole friggen ordeal… How bout the confirmation email.

        •  

          I know right, it's very unfair for those who didn't even think of taking any screenshots.

          I will post my outcome on here when I get another response from them

      I did the same too. they cancelled the fake order I did during the sale first this morning which was fine. but i made two other legit orders on apple tv and 6am ps4. they cancelled all my orders.

    •  

      What items did you have cancelled? Did you have a fake item which caused all items to be cancelled?

      Also, in regards to your earlier email, the order numbers started at 1000. They gave away about 500 items (or slightly less), not 1500.

    I think those who accessed the site via the /search and even by RSS were not fraudulent. I've read through their https://www.clickfrenzy.com.au/terms-and-conditions/ and cannot see how doing so violated the T&Cs.

    I would encourage users to exercise their legal right to consumer protection in a number of ways:
    1. Lodge a dispute/complaint to the ACCC

    1. Contact a consumer protection lawyer
      One such example is MauriceBlackburn who is a no-win-no-fee legal firm.

      Is it worth getting a lawyer for a $400 PlayStation though?

      •  

        Try free legal services like legal aid perhaps
        also, didn't you win the tv, that has to be worth $6000 doesn't it?

        •  

          I cancelled the TV on PayPal as people were saying the products on the search page were test products, but I left the other 2 as they were earned by clicking the banner.

          Nevertheless, they still cancelled the order for all 3…

        •  

          @koalafied: Seems like it didn't matter if you canceled or not, in their eyes they will still play the fraud card, I could be wrong but it does seem like my original idea of what's to stop them from hoarding items

        •  

          @sxlayer: I called legal aid, they don't handle common disputes so it's up to either the state fair trading or accc or no win no fee lawyers which i'm unsure unless you want to go in for a higher amount like say $100,000 or more otherwise they might not take the case, also they keep a retainer so you might end up with $5

      They also posted this previously

      "Apologies to those who followed the instructions via email but did not see the banner promoting the PS4 deal this morning. There does appear to have been an error in delivering that banner, though some did see it and were able to make a purchase.
      Click Frenzy will rerun this deal later today so keep your eye out for the next email. Those who did get to purchase the PS4 this morning will keep those."

      As far as I was led to believe, people who saw the PS4 at 6 am was on the products page of clickfrenzystore and not the banner at all.

    I was reading the terms and conditions and this peaked my interest

    So if not click frenzy, then whom? Since I did pay to click frenzy, the paypal was clearly click frenzy. How is click frenzy not the direct seller?

    I believe and I step in,leave this comment and shut off my browser.

  •  

    I might send an email off in the morning for a complaint because the more I think about this the less right it seems. I just saw a couple of comments on the clickfrenzy Facebook page about people saying they "won" items only to have them removed, to me that is wrong wording as clickfrenzy didn't advertise this as a competiton but as a sale so you never "won" you made a purchase of items from their site and it doesn't matter if the purchased was done through the banner or a search page located within their site as you were "buying" a product from them (they weren't giving it away for free) so it doesn't really matter how you end up on the product page.

    •  

      I don't think they even know how you got to the product page. The "fraudulent" orders (yes, I had one too) is for the fake items they listed in RSS feed.

  •  

    People posting on facebook saying click frenzy cancelling all their orders. Did anyone get anything from the go wild sale?

    Sounds like a massive scam to me. The people behind this only have a matter of time before they face some pretty serious legal implications. Lawyers already involved and wheels are in motion :)

      People are idiots. I got my fake item cancelled (in my rush, I bought a $100 nutribullet, silly me) but the real items have not been cancelled. There might be a few genuine orders being cancelled which should get attention, but the complaints will be flooded in self entitled douchebags raging that they didn't get their 70" tv that they didn't win.

      Edit: does sound like people with multiple wins on same account have had them all cancelled. That's absolute bs of course.

      •  

        I had two definit real legit orders. for the 6AM PS4 and 15th november evening Apple TV offer.

        at the time i made these two legit orders there was no such a thing as fake item. it was all on and after that nutribullet shit.

        •  

          Yeah, sounds like all orders were cancelled if you bought any fake item. That's very poor form and I hope you get it sorted.

  •  

    @ sunny00. Explain……So you believe this was all a scam and you tried to do something ?????

    It's a slightly random quote from someone who is associated

  •  

    Honestly, people that "won" the fake items should do the right thing and let it go. They had unlimited fake items and "sold" probably hundreds 70" TVs. Ordered have been cancelled and will be refunded. Let it go. Adding fake items to combat RSS feed wasn't the best idea, but it's not that big of a deal.

    Give the people with real issues a chance to be heard. If people have had their genuine orders cancelled, that's awful. Give them a chance to be heard without flooding emails, Facebook and phone lines with trying to create outrage in hopes to get a free 70" tv that you didn't win (and won't get regardless).

      Adding fake items is a big deal when it's done with the intent to mislead the consumer. It's actually a breach of Australian Consumer Law and carries penalties of up to $1.1 million.

      Everyone who purchased one of these "fake" items did so believing they were buying the real thing. And the fact that so many people fell victim to it hints at misleading conduct.

      There is no difference between those who landed on a product page via a banner ad or via the RSS feed. Their intentions were the same and neither broke any terms, conditions or laws in purchasing (or believing they were purchasing) an item.

      •  

        I respectfully disagree. Most people clicked too quickly to have had time to read what they "bought" (including me) but realised afterwards that it was not the real product. If you try and click on something the millisecond it appears without reading what you are clicking, I don't really think you were mislead as such. As is always the case though, people want the free items and try to justify that they should get them despite not winning them. Same thing everytime there is an obvious price error and orders get cancelled. Sure, give it a try if you want, but don't start complaining if the order gets cancelled.

        Additionally, unlike the product page, the RSS feed wasn't directly linked, so I find it hard to have much sympathy. Anyone with that link knew it was not the official way to win and anything could be on that page.

        That said, if you bought the real item through RSS feed or whatever, that's fine and should clearly not be cancelled. Same goes that if you bought a fake item, your genuine wins should not be cancelled. That's ridiculous.

        I do agree that adding fake items was a bad idea, but I can see how it happened as they tried to make it fair with what means they had available. You could clearly see it was tongue in cheek as well if reading description. Let's not hang some poor IT employee whom made a questionable decision in the heat of the moment.

        • +4 votes

          This was not a competition and there were no conditions of entry. The retailer gave instructions as to how one can arrive at a product page. Clicking their banner was not a condition of purchase, so however someone arrived at a product page is irrelevant.

          Furthermore, the retailer created an environment where no one could both read an item's description and secure the item. It was a frenzy. More to the point, the "fake" listings had the correct product title, the correct product image, the correct advertised price, and they were published during the period the retailer advertised the bargain would be published. It was not reasonably foreseeable for any consumer to assume a listing might be fake.

          Now consider that the retailer cancels all these orders and suggests their customers committed some form of fraud. That shows a disregard for their customers beyond any ill-conceived plot from a lone IT employee. It's blatant and insulting.

          Given how the retailer handled the situation today, I believe their behaviour deserves to be investigated.

        •  

          @SoSoDef:
          Calling it fraudulent is obviously not right, but more about them trying to save their own skin. If they were to try and "take action" against these "fraudsters", that would take it to another level though as no one has really don't anything wrong.

          I also think it's a fine line saying that it's not a competition. Technically true, and a promotion would be a better word, but it clearly wasn't a normal sale with stock that was expected to last for a long time. It was a promotional 99% off sale with limited quantities and expectations that it would be very difficult to "win" (or whatever you want to call it) one of these items.

          But cancelling the orders seems entirely reasonable. If an employee makes a mistake and price a $6000 dollar item as $6, and they sell 500 of these items before fixed, the retailer are not obliged to fulfill the orders. Mistakes happen.

          I know it's not exactly the same, but same principle. What about all of us that knew about the fake listings but didn't buy any?

          Anyway, I see your point but I still can't say that I agree. It's not entirely black on white though I suppose. I'm sure we can agree that it will be interesting to see what happens.

          Personally, I think it's more concerning that we bought what we thought was a ps4 pro (as per product image) but which sounds like it is actually not the pro version. The pro image is still there when I check order status. Although I might be biased for obvious reasons. No one has replied to my email or Facebook message. Clearly other people don't agree that it's a big issue, probably because the winners are in such minority :-p but if this was a "normal" sale, it would have been a big issue and it's very misleading.

          Edit: more concerning than people not getting the fake items I mean, not more concerning than people not getting the genuine items.

        •  

          @fruxo: I think their argument is, "we know you obtained this item fraudulently by not clicking on the banner, so how do we know the other wins were genuine?". Which, I can see their point. They obviously knew about some shortcuts people found but I'm sure there were others that they are still not aware of, so they just declare all transactions by that account as being fraudulent. I doubt we'll see this promotion running again next Clickfrenzy time, which sucks. What was meant to be bargains for some turned into greedy people trying to get as much as they can, then getting sour when it backfired more than they anticipated.

        •  

          @fruxo: To me this is how I see things. I do not agree with the method they used in flooding their search page with fake items as it could have been password protected but lets say some developer decided it was good idea I am fine with it if done correctly. The fake pages should NEVER have had purchase options, If you wanted to include a checkout button to sell it more that is fine but it should basically just be a page refresh button. The minute you add product photos, page titles of said products and an option to purchase within a situation you as the shop created where it would be impossible to purchase a sale item and read the entire description, the minute people discover their items are not the real deal will feel ripped off and the main reason for this comes down to the fact the left it open for money to exchange hands. If there was no link to PayPal or checkout button these fake pages would not have been an issue. Im pretty sure what they did fall under fraud as they used deception in their method of taking money from people using the search page even though they have now started returning money the initial transaction comes across as fraud to me.

          Their customer service isn't much better as instead of just a blanket "Im sorry but your orders have been cancelled due to unapproved means to access the sale" which we could still argue about they resorted to abusing customers and accusing them of the very thing they appear to have committed.

          At the end of the day I think there needs to be an investigation in the way they handled this sale, Im not saying people are or are not entitled to the products they purchased through the fake links I just personally believe the way they handled it was wrong and misleading to consuming.

        •  

          @Quandons:
          I mostly agree.

          But my assumption is that they didn't know much about how shopify worked or how to configure it. Or else they would have simply turned off the product page, search and RSS feed right away. Or done something else, like adding password protection. I've never used shopify, but I assume this shouldn't be a problem.

          Like you said, if they added fake products, they should have ensured you were not able to complete the transaction. But maybe they didn't know how to, and they didn't anticipate people to actually buy them. Or for all we know they might have thought they did stop purchase from being finalised, but it's not like they had time to test it.

          In other words, I don't think there was any deception as such. They didn't plan to add fake items all along to trick people into fixing them money, it was something they added in the heat of the moment so people wouldn't immediate know which link to press (to take away the advantage). It was probably the only thing they could think of and knew how to do. And they clearly didn't think it through. And then they kept digging by calling orders "fraudulent" and, more importantly, cancelling associated orders.

          It's an unfortunate situation and the treasure hunt (with some major tweaks!) could have been a nice tradition. It's a shame it's probably completely dead now.

        •  

          @fruxo:

          I agree it could have been a great event but having people refresh for an hour was stupid and would have been better with half an hour brackets on all items and disclosing how many products were available. Ideally they should have put a 4 number code on the banner so that way when you went to checkout you would have had to enter the code in the voucher slot for the sale to go ahead. Yes it would have been slower but would have elimated the need for fake pages.

          I know you don't have access to my messages to clickfrenzy but within their message to me when describing the fake product pages they used the term "specifically designed" which means it wasn't a heat of the moment thing and had been an approved method within the company. Now obviously they had developers working within in this time to create these pages and nobody raised the question about their obligations by including a checkout system on fake pages.

          Either way we will see what happens next year.

        •  

          @Quandons:
          After today, I probably have to take back most of what I've said. It doesn't seem like it was one guy making an honest mistake (or bad decision or whatever). Click frenzy seems to be extremely poorly managed with accusations of customers committing fraud and telling lies and "hacking" and whatnot. Very unprofessional and downright incorrect. Clearly it was not an isolated incident.

  •  

    Yeah I got one they have refused to answer and they took my money not a pending PayPal effort taken from my cc

    So if you have a guilty concience maybe you need to let it go.

    I know a lot more about it than you unless your associated with this too, so my question to sunny is still valid!!!

    •  

      My post wasn't aimed at you or anyone in particular, I'm just sick of all the people whining about how they deserve to get the "fake" prize because they paid $4 bla bla. Less such posts in this thread than other places I suppose.

      Additionally, I'm not entirely sure what either you or sunny are saying to be honest.

  •  

    i also won a ps4 through the banner and later bought one of the fake tvs from searching for it. i cancelled the tv on paypal when i realised it was a fake. now i also have been sent me an email saying both were fraudulent and both are cancelled. there seems to be quite a few of us in the same boat

    •  

      I'm im the same boat, will be contacting them early morning tomorrow as I got a follow up email today asking for the banner screenshot.

      •  

        ive got no screenshots :( but i dont understand why they would need them i sat there wasting an hour of my time refreshing that page until the banner changed and clicked through the checkout as soon as it did. i was so stoked that id actually been fast enough to get one. for the tv i searched and all those fake ones came up, added one to cart and i thought whats the worse that can happen either i get lucky and get a tv or i dont, id already "won" a ps4 so i was happy. i did send them a message on facebook and they saw it but didnt reply. "fraudulent", what sort of a shit show are they running even putting fake items up for sale to begin with is as shonky as it gets.

      •  

        do you still have your browser history? i just checked mine and the link that i clicked 1st for the ps4 listing is one of the fake ones (play-station-for you 9). so obviously i bought a fake one somehow. now im starting to question my sanity, i know staring at the same page refreshing over and over for close to an hour was starting to send me insane but know i clicked that banner and not a link from the RSS. so how did i end up landing on the fake link page?

        •  

          I couldn't find it in mine, however I have every other link somehow. It's like they removed it from there :S

  •  

    I believe "fraudlent" activity would be using illegal means to get to the items like finding a hack or vulnerability of the site and exploiting it, or being an insider and having undue advantade over everyone else. RSS feeds and Products page is an "allow all" part of any website which whole world can access, it should not be marked as fraudlent.
    Nowhere in their terms and conditions it says that you should have clicked the link and not used the RSS feeds or products page.
    Cancelling all other orders because you bought 1 fake item that they advertised on their site as being genuine with photos and taking money for it, is a fradlent activity on their part.
    I would be interested to see how nany people would actually get their orders posted (if any).
    according to me this avtivity has not been conducted professionally and yes they should be slapped by ACCC. Class action would be a way to go I believe.

  •  

    Facebook update. Orders have started shipping and the cancelled orders will go to whoever was next on line.

    I'd be VERY curious how they can decide that and it sounds more like a throwaway line that won't actually happen. But if anyone is somehow contacted about a second chance item, please let us know.

    • +1 vote

      How do they know who was next on line given that anyone adding to cart could not proceed further since the item was completely sold out and hence lock them out of the system.

      •  

        Someone below said that people on facebook have already started receiving orders but someone with legit purchases still hasn't had their order accepted. Another person said they only had 5 of each item. So perhaps they let, say, 20 purchases go through so that they knew who was next in line? Which wouldn't be very fair.

      •  

        person next on line = staff,

          I'm just stirring. I heard that legit orders were cancelled - that's wrong. I'd be livid.

          @oodian: apparently if you won more than one item you must be a hacker according to their logic or if you know how to use the f5 key or if you clicked links leading to scamsung or ps4 picture with text, which they setup on purpose

          @smodahf:

          I think they would be looking at time between the product being released and checkout. They'd probably have a threshold where if it was below a certain time, the probability that it came from the RSS feed or a bot is high and so they label it as fraud.

          I got two items for what its worth and no cancellation emails.

          Some people were asking how they might distribute to next in line. They may have data on what time products were added to cart and if you were signed in they could potentially identify individuals. All speculation though.

          @oodian: Absolute rubbish, how about decent internet and mouse clicking in the moment, I will continue to pursue this until I have exhausted all methods and at which point I will probably forget it and move on, but I want them to pay for making many of us wait for hours refreshing manually on a page waiting for a banner within a microsecond and making sure you were accurate

          @smodahf: I would point out that they didn't "make" us do anything…but indeed this is ozbargain so I'm with ya BRUDDER!

    I went through all my browser history and found my products where I had won and took screenshots as evidence, I suggest everyone else do the same as a show of good faith but I also have screenshots of product pages and banners so this is probably the minimum you might need to build a case

      They have said I lied twice about the PS4 banner appearing because apparently the banner at 6 AM did not pop up at all, but if thats the case, why did they say it appeared for some and for others it didn't on their Facebook post?

      "Apologies to those who followed the instructions via email but did not see the banner promoting the PS4 deal this morning. There does appear to have been an error in delivering that banner, though some did see it and were able to make a purchase.
      Click Frenzy will rerun this deal later today so keep your eye out for the 12pm email. Those who did get to purchase the PS4 this morning will keep those."

      Why can't I keep mine then if I clicked the ad? Why are they saying two different things? Did the banner appear or didn't it? They don't even know themselves, this is an outrage!!! I will not give up on my case

        I didn't see the banner at all at 6am (5am QLD time). That was a killer as I got home from night shift at 2am only to wake up at 4:45am to get online and start refreshing the page about 5 mins before the event was meant to start.

        I didn't discover the search page until during the PS4 rerun.

        I have a feeling they won't even honour anyone's order, or if they do, it will be themselves with fake facebook/twitter accounts

      •  

        Damned admins on an ego trip, I confirmed they are watching us though so, anyone on this forum and they see you here and they identify you, careful they will cancel your order and accuse you of hacking because of comments not even relating to this click frenzy but out of context

      •  

        do you have a screenshot of the 6am banner with time attached?

      •  

        Curious did you actually click the banner because a few posts ago you were asking someone to send you the banner as you don't have it in your browser history. I don't think anyone saw the banner at 6am. I think they have said some people saw it because they didn't want to announce that some people had found unintended ways to purchase the items which is effectively admitting to every subscriber that they're wasting their time clicking banners as others have gamed the system.

          I did indeed. I only asked because Click Frenzy instantly labelled me as a fraud without even letting me show evidence or hearing my side of the story. I wanted to show them that I wasn't the only one with the banner. However it does NOT matter whether I saw the banner at 6:00-6:01 etc, I made a legitimate purchase which they have to honour as described in their T&C.

          Section 4, 2.
          Products on this Site only (www.clickfrenzystore.com.au) are directly sold by CF through the Site. CF is responsible for sourcing and delivering these products to you as described on the page from which a purchase has been made. Products on this site are only available to consumers for brief sales periods.

          1. They added fake products which they clearly couldn't supply (penalties up to $1.1 million)
          2. They accepted payment and couldn't supply any purchases regardless of how one found the product and checked out
          3. Their products are not directly sold by CF, someone else on here mentioned that it was sourced from another company (still trying to find the post)
          4. Buying a product through their website' openly available search page does not mean you gamed the system
          5. T&C states that the ad banner will disappear once the item is out of stock, they left the banner up for a good 5-10 minutes, again, violated their own terms

          @koalafied:
          Sorry to get all stalker on you but looking over the comments that morning and you said koalafied on 16/11/2016 - 07:17

          It was on the product page at 6 AM, 6:03 it disappeared

          So it seems to indicate that you didn't click the banner but got it from the product page. No one said they saw the banner that morning including you. I mean I don't really care as I was on there at 6am and missed out from that product page but I don't think you're being truthful in saying that you got if via the banner and I think that's why they know that as they would know you either got the item before the banner appeared or that the banners never appeared at all.

          @donkcat:

          When did I say that? No such comment on here, don't lie. I also got the Westfield gift card through the banner and they called me a fraud.
