Burned by OzBargain deal (Seamless Bra)

As suggested by one of the moderators here at OZBargain, I'm sharing an experience I had with a dodgy deal posted a little over a month ago.

On the 8th of Feb, a deal was posted for cheap seamless bras. I promptly notified the boss who in turn promptly reminded me that she had been nagging me for months for new bras. So I ordered some for her. Needless to say they never arrived and Mrs 0xFFFF started nagging me about the non-existent bras. I attempted to go to the original web site but it was 'under maintenance'. I monitored the page for a few days, then I went to PayPal to file a dispute in order to get in contact with the seller and ask why Mrs 0xFFFF is not wearing their fancy bras yet. When I filed the dispute the case was immediately escalated.

Hopefully this will be helpful for others.

      What I call a necessary evil.

  • As a personal preference I tend to only purchase deals which have a minimum of 10 + votes, just because the more people which see it the higher chance someone will notice a dodgy site etc. Freebies I dont really care, but its lucky we have a very savvy community sussing out deals.

    You may have missed out an a deal beforehand and it was sold out and been quick to jump, it's better to miss out then get scammed. Good warning for others.

    You couldn't tell by its post history that it might be a but suspect?

    • I don't know why I didn't check. It's my own stupid fault. I've made hundreds of purchases online. This time I just forgot to check and got burnt. :/
