I strongly suggest people not to purchase anything from gearbest.com. I had the worst experience with it. My credit card info was stolen after I purchased a cheap phone case from it. Now I understand why it was so cheap, it was "sold" in exchange of your credit card info on purpose.
SD, please stop posting anything from gearbest.com !!!

If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Use PayPal for protection. Haven't had any issues and have done 10+ orders.

I boycotted them for the last 3 years but decided to give them another shot a few days ago. I'll only be out $13.00 if they screw me over and I did use Paypal.

Most likely the phone or computer you used had malware. That's how you got your card stolen.

No likely at all.

Maybe we can set alert on the top: use paypal only for gearbest, if you want to take the risk anyway. It is a pity I didn't know this "common sense".

Then just ask Paypal for a refund.

SD gets kickbacks from GearWorst, hence why you see their "deals" listed.
