Not resolved

HERE IS MY EXPERIENCE be wary... this dodgy company is a dumping ground for seconds, refurbs and defective junk!

Hi, i recieved my order today and i am not happy,

The packaged arrived in good condition but on opening it the camera boxes look worn and have small tears and scratches, Also multiple layers of sticky tape, multiple labels over old labels and stickers peeled off.

The is not consistant with transport damage!!

These items are Not new!!

The Camera's do not work/turn on and clearly look like used/ex warranty returned items.

Review about: Mini 0806.

I liked: Nightmare, Untrustworthy, Dodgy.

I didn't like: Having to pay return postage for their dishonesty, Everything to do with gearbest.

Review #894896 is a subjective opinion of a user.

Reason of Review / Monetary Loss defective, used junk and now they expect me to pay $40aud to return it / $200
Preferred solution full refund of purchase price and return postage $230usd

Had an Experience with Gearbest?
