Default Geekbuying

I noticed quite a few members ordered their Android TV from geekbuying.com. what is this company like dealing with? Is it a pain in the rear end or smooth transaction?

I noticed they don't add taxes on the checkout bill, do I pay the taxes on delivery?

I know this slightly off topic but I'm one step away from purchasing a MINIX N7.

Thank You

you dont have to pay sales tax on the goods if over internet unless you are in their home state and there is never tax on delivery but check with your state for something called "use tax" i have one in ohio too but no problem as if you are unsure of that bussiness check with bbb( better bussines bureau)

Geekbuying are total scammers. Took my money, never sent me anything and never reply to emails. Made me wait until I couldn't get my money back too. Never again.

Also I'm not the only person to of been ripped off by them, check out all the links to other people who have posted their experiences and been ripped off.

Geekbuying are Mcbub.com, in4dealz.com, freaktab. Once people discover who they are, they make a new site. They post loads of fake reviews online.

Mcbub.com (de-listed from google for 2 years after being caught spamming, fraud, fake reviews, trying to trick google's search engine and also spreading false information).

Here are just a few links I found about them when I was investigating how they ripped me off.

If you open their site and search geekbuying the complaints from people who have been ripped off is sick.

The Facebook link is very good as all the users are verifiable real people. Not like the fake reviews Geekbuying post on the ratings sites.

It will be interesting to see the fake accounts come and attack me now, and what a surprize it will be the same accounts who bump their spam.

Best regards, J

Man this sucks,

I just ordered Minix Neo X7

I paid with PayPal, the email I received said they will ship the product out within 5 business days and provide a tracking number. If I dont receive my device within 20 days I will report it to PayPal to get my money back.

freaktab = Geekbuying

Checkout the facebook page the angry customers setup and see the ton of users who are real people who have been ripped off. If you say not compelling evidence you're either blind or just an obvious shill for them.

If you get it you can consider yourself one of the lucky ones. Plenty of other places to shop that don't rip people off. I suggest canceling the order now before it ships.

facebook shows less than one complaint a month since March. You are wasting your time posting here, you only joined this forum yesterday, obviously for a solitary rant. I am not being 'shilly' neither am I blind. Chill out, Chinese style.
