Ive had the exact opposite, I could go on with a long list but just most recent last week I open a speaker I bought from them a month back it was after 30 days was supposed to be open box and the power cord was missing. They wouldn't do anything about it and they had numerous in stock. Killer deals but sketch.
Was that noted in the listing? It should have been... sorry you went through that. There's always your CC I guess. I've never had an issue, of course that's as anecdotal as your claims. But it is important to inspect what you get from them. The 30 day return policy with RMA return shipping on them is rather generous. Not many sites pay for your return shipping.
If you benefit from the deal, REP the OP!
