I tried to order a Repugnus Titan Master from this online store:

Two weeks later when I got my package, it was a Gucci scarf (most likely a knockoff) with a receipt stating the value of the product was substiantially more then my order and insisting on payment upon receipt of goods.
The tracking company didn’t have any data on the sender.
Also, the tracking data they do have showed it originating in China, not New Zealand.

I tried to email them to clarify the problem and return the scarf (as recommended by Australia Post), but their email gave an autoscripted response telling me they do not accept delivery enquires, despite the fact their delivery disclaimer mentions using that email address if there is a problem.

Of course, my next visit was to the bank to cancel the transaction and get a new credit card.
From now on, I’m only paying via PayPal, so nobody gets my new credit card number.

FYI, they can have their knockoff scarf back at any time, all they have to do is give me a return mailing address.
But I’m not paying for a product I didn’t order.

You put your credit card details into a half baked shopfront, what were you expecting...?
