RIVER ROUGE, MICHIGAN -- I would not recommend iOffer to anyone. I ordered a rare movie, "Bird of Paradise", put in the credit card information clicked all the way to the end. I get an email that say, "Thank you for your order it will be shipped in 5 to 8 days." Then I get emails to confirm payment. I email the seller and asked what's up with that, I already put all my credit card information in. This back and forth went on for three emails and then I got a rather rude email from the seller, **, telling me they don't know what I am talking about after I explained it three times and in caps, "DO NOT REPORT THIS AS A PROBLEM just send the message here at iOffer.
When you report a problem sellers items are dumped in searches. I won't have any sales for that day. So I click on the link to respond to her and it does nothing, it goes nowhere. As far as I am concerned, she was rude and no help whatsoever. I believe you have to use PayPal but when I went to buy the item, it said nothing about PayPal and took all my credit card information. Yet, the seller, sending me numerous emails just didn't have a clue what was going on, didn't understand what I was saying and was obviously to uninformed to guide me in the right direction.
So if you want your credit card information out there and one big run around, go ahead and use this site. I order a different movie the same day from Amazon.com and received it 5 days later no muss no fuss. iOffer is a fly by night site with sellers that don't have a brain in their heads.
CALIFORNIA -- IOffer is a scam run by street gangs delinquents that take no responsibility for the quality or honesty of their sellers. I purchase a pair of boots from their site at the cost of $218. After a few days of not getting any information from the seller I contacted Paypal for a refund. I was told that as long as I have a tracking number they wouldn't give a refund. After 3 weeks I receive a box with a pair of USED old boots "not before I have to sign for the delivery". I contacted iOffer but they never had giving me an answer as to why they let these delinquents post on their site!
IOffer is as guilty as the delinquent that run freely under their control on their site, posting as legitimate business when in fact are a bunch of the thief protected by iOffer. In retaliation of my complaints iOffer had deleted all my notes/complaints from their site, and had put my account under review because of the complaint. On the last note from iOffer they informed me the seller has been suspended from iOffer for "violating iOffer's policies" but that I should contact the seller for a refund (pathetic)!!!
I wouldn't recommend this site anybody, you are much better protected at E-bay. There If you purchase an item and you pay with Paypal then an the item is not as describe Paypal will refund your money, but they do not cover you if you purchase an item in any other site. My recommendation is never to use iOffer, they are a bunch delinquents that protect other delinquents.
CALIFORNIA -- IOffer has had a lot of customer complaints. However, I have bought two things from there, no problems. A lot of sellers are from China (which I was uninformed on this when purchasing a "Gucci" purse from there.) and other countries outside the U.S. Of course, a lot of their things listed are FAKES, and being resold on eBay, because people are unaware of the fact that they are buying fakes. But one way to tell you have a fake, ask for the serial number. If you type that serial number in google, and it lists a bunch of DIFFERENT purses, then you know it's a replica. No two purses (or whatever has a serial number) should be the same.
Another red flag of a replica is when you google the serial number, and REPLICA WEBSITES showing the same serial number with different purses show up. (: Hehe just remember the saying, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is." Remember, that if someone bought a $1,000 Chanel purse, why would they sell it for only $100? You just have to watch your back on iOffer. ALWAYS check the feedback. To make sure I'm safe, I even read negative feedback. If there is any feedback from someone who hasn't received their item, I wouldn't buy.
There are a lot of scammers, but there are also a lot of honest sellers. You just have to be careful. Always ask questions before you buy. Do your research on the buyer. and always know the product you're buying (to ensure you don't get a FAKE.).
On February 17, 2007 I saw an ad on iOffer. I saw Cartier glasses being offered at a good price. I have contacted the seller via internet and he told me to send him $100.00 via Western Union and he will send me the glasses. Money was wired to him the next day and as of today I still do not have the product I have paid for. I have contacted iOffer several times but have not heard back from them yet. I am sure I am not the only one who has been scammed out of their money, this advertisement is nationwide. Do not have anything to do with **.
I just read a review from **, and I absolutely agree. I am a member of eBay and I was surfing around for other sites to buy and sell on, when I ran across iOffer. What a mistake that was. I bought some items from a certain individual only to find after posting them on eBay that they were illegal. Well eBay pulled them and I was livid. I value my good name on eBay. Well I wrote several letters to customer service in iOffer to no avail.
UNBELIEVABLE, customer service didn't respond and neither did the person that I bought from. I still have 20.00 on account there just in case I was going to sell something but after that, I asked for the money back to no avail. I can't even terminate my account!!!
Well 1 month later I went into iOffer and wrote all kinds of bad feedback on the person that sold me 470.00 worth of illegal items and said "you have your items back, I want my money back" to no avail. Finally they left me bad feedback and called me LOCO for saying that items were illegal. I in turn got to leave the whole story for all to see and they refunded total amount. I got very lucky now all I have to do is find a way to get out of the illegal hell whole.
Thanks for reading this long letter but I felt that good people need to know to stay away.
PALOMINAS -- I have tried, without success, to determine whether or not "iOffer" is attempting to sell bootleg, i.e., illegal DVD copies of films. DO NOT DEAL WITH ANY COMPANY WHICH SAME REFUSES TO RESPOND TO A LEGITIMATE INQUIRY. Any purchaser of such copy could be prosecuted by the Feds!
IOffer is a safe haven for criminals. They allow individuals to sign up for multiple accounts, then buy from themselves to seem credible. People that can't make a profit from fraud on eBay jump to iOffer because it protects them iOffer administration is hands-off. They feel that their TOS puts the transactions in the hands of the users--which it does, but really, can't they do some sort of IP tracking? Make sure an IP address doesn't purchase from itself or sign up for several accounts?
