    Here is a story of a customer service they gave me:

    I bought Hero H7500+ from them.
    All was ok for about a month, when it the phone started to turn off
    after 30-40 min of standby. Suddenly. I've tried to turn it on again -
    with no luck.
    I had to take out the battery and put it back in order
    to turn in on again.

    It wasnt a battery problem coz after i've managed to turn it on - the battery was on 96% (with both of them which i got from China24).

    I've tried to flash other roms, 6-7 of them which were posted on 4pda forum - but nothing helped. It kept on turning off every time.
    I've sent it to Helen as she was advised me, it took 2 MONTHS (!!!) until i got the phone back.

    Guess what - NOTHING CHANGED.
    they've sent me the same phone, with the same problems - JUST WASTED 2 MONTHS of my time without any solution.

    Then, today, they finally answered me, and tried to tell me lies like:
    We've repaired your phone etc..

    The phone they sent me back was with the same scratches as mine,
    the same IMEI, the same calls history with exact timestamps. LIES LIES LIES....

    I'm not going to spent another 2 months for waiting until they "fix" it (if they want me to do that at all).

    Until now - it turns out they are liars and scammers.

    Just to inform you all:
    You Don't want to BUY from China24Shop - If you don't want to get stung.

    You DO wanna buy from China24Shop if you want:
    To get ignored
    To get promised things they won't do
    To get ignored again on Skype
    To get ignored again on Email
    To wait 2 months until they "fix" it, and guess what (they didn't even opened the phone!)

    Etc etc etc...

    You've been warned.

    "1. Professional Manufacturer

    We possess several production bases in electronics, gathering over 500 staff and a professional R&D team,which makes us have strong manufacturing abilities." :rolleyes:

    It's not...she is a private individual, probably a student or something, in some dingy residential apartment block.

    That sucks.

    I will not source anything from Chinese sellers for that reason. Business Ethics is an oxymoron in China. Most of them have no moral compass and will do anything to get your money.

    I wish people would wake up and realize that it is not worth saving money(in the end, you really don't save anything).

    Not what you said, but it still works. IMO, business ethics is an oxymoron everywhere.

    Fact: Regardless of China, America, etc., there are dishonest sellers everywhere. Just buy from reputable sales companies. I've never had issues with either country, but then, I've always bought via reputable sites like Amazon.

    I'll second that. It's possible to run into issues with any seller, but you'll reduce your risk when using a trusted company with a good reputation.

    Had a similar experience buying tech from China myself. Their website & ordering was OK, but then the no show of goods had me hassling them by email & their response was "did you order it?" followed later by "oh no, that is discontinued, can you try another". Luckily I got paypal to dispute it.

    Nowadays if I buy from the east I choose someone like Audiocubes, they are really good & shipping is very fast :).
