    Hi,

    BUYER BEWARE

    Wish that I had read reviews before ordering from NewChic UK. The items I purchased are very poor quality Chinese tat. I am trying to return for a refund under the 14 day distance selling regulations, but to date they have refused to provided a return address.

    Are you sure its a UK company? The only New Chic I can find operates under Chinese law and is unlikely to offer much in the way of consumer protection.

    why cant people do research before buying from these sites which are clear scammers

    https://whois.domaintools.com/newchic.com

    again tell tale signs

    designer items and knockdown prices
    NO address, phone or email address on website

    shipping page even states 'Shipping from Chinese Warehoues' and they cant even spell

    which is a
    Nature of business (SIC)
    99999 Dormant Company -
    https://companycheck.co.uk/company/10068597/ALPHABETRADE-CO-LIMITED

    There are so many of these scam sites but it is usually easy to tell.

    Sorry for your loss (i expect it will be a loss) Missile but I wouldnt expect a poster of 10 years plus to have been caught out by one of these sites, more often than not it is first time posters on here that get caught

    Yes plenty about and it is comical in the way these scammers try and get hosting accounts

    try 1) order comes in as normal, but fails the security checks
    try 2) a few hrs later and order comes in with similar name and address, but again fails the security checks
    try 3) you get a pre sales support ticket or live chat with someone asking they would like to host with you (bad english) and if you can provide ( and then they quote specs they would like, which are identical to a listed plan on my website), so explain this and its always' we try but cant place order as no order link. I know order link does show as what they are after is you as a host to set the hosting up for them, so they avoid the security checks. when i say site and order system is working 100% and the only way to place an order, i never hear from them again.

    Well, I also clicked on an ad in FB. Bought an item which arrived in just over a week and was exactly as I ordered. Wasnt a lot of money, less than a tenner. Not saying they are total bonafide but cant say they are scam either
    I started out with nothing......And still have most of it left
