I didn't realise the capacity issue existed until after the 30 days had elapsed, and I'm now stuck with useless USB drives and no refund.
Australian Consumer Law protects you against products that are not as described...and some 30 day warranty is irrelevant. This applies to any product purchased 'in' Australia...and that includes online.
Only difference there is the 'chase' is less likely to succeed considering effort involved...
I have quit asking Wish to refund my money. Every response from them blatantly ignores the facts and the situation at hand. All I get is that the 30 days have elapsed and a refund is not forthcoming. It doesn't matter that the drives were falsely advertised and were in fact fakes, Wish is sticking by its 30 day policy.
Okay, then, if that's the way they want to play it, then I will make it my mission to bring Wish down here in Australia. Apart from reaching out to all my family and friends in Australia, New Zealand, The UK and US to outline what has transpired, I will be approaching several members of Federal Parliament with regard to Wish breaching several Australian consumer laws.... like charging more than double the advertised price for pairs of shoes, t-shirts, etc that are of larger sizes.... or like saying an item is free but bumping up the postage to cover more than the original price of the item PLUS postage. For example, an item could cost $4.00 with $2.00 postage, but after the "free, just pay postage', the cost will rise to $8.00. Free my arse.
Another slimy practice is charging, for example, $6.00 postage for one item, but if you order, say, 4 items, you get charged $24.00 postage, yet the items are bundled in the same package and delivered for the same price as the 1 item.
Yup, Wish can go fech itself. It has already lost 50 plus customers as a result of this, and with word of mouth I can imagine many more customers will follow suit. And if I get my way, Wish will be banned here in Australia for its breaches of Australian Trade Practices. As whiny assed as he is, Gerry Harvey would be somebody to get on side here. He'd be more than happy to lobby government to outlaw overseas online businesses doing the wrong thing.
Thing is, it's not just about the money. Sure, I'd like to get my money back, but it's more the principle of the thing. I mean, what if somebody buys a $500 phone and it dies after 31 days? Put bluntly, they're feched! I'm not out of pocket that much, but I don't see why a company should be able to keep my 120 bucks for something that clearly is fake and was falsely advertised.
Of course this original post is over a year old
Yes, it was originally resurrected by spam...
Sorry that I drew it out further. I don't recall seeing the thread before, and what is currently happening to myself and other Wish customers just seemed so relevant.... fake reviews on shonky products.
