DINODIRECT - Devious or just idiots? Edit - Correct item arrived.

29th November - I decide to order the Sunwayman V60C from Dinodirect, just under $115 dollars in their sale.

4th December - I get an email informing me it has been despatched.

7th December - They send me an email inviting me to view a picture of my package as it was despatched.

 

WTF?

I think Dinodirect have lost me as a customer for good.

I strongly suspect they didn't want to sell the V60C at the sale price. so they have deliberately sent me this sh*t.

The second I get some red plastic lips phone delivered, I'll be doing a chargeback.

Summer, when you read this, I'm not interested in Dinopoints or store credit. I want what I ordered, without waiting for months. What are you going to do about this?

Well , could simply be 

1.  Some one has emailed you the wrong picture 

2. Some one else is getting your flashlight [ and your getting there lip service ] 

3. DD , I suspect they sell a lot of stuff so stuff might happen . 

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

I would wait till you got the package before declaring war. If you do get a red lip phone, then go bananas but save yourself a little stress and wait.

I haven't had a lot of experiance with DD, but when I had a problem they were very helpfull on their chat line and resolved the problem very quickly.  This was for a cheap light, not something expensive, so YMMV.  I would think though that if you get the lip phone, them having sent you a pic showing the lip phone in your basket probably goes a long way to proving your point.   You could certianly live chat with them, but probably they will just tell you to wait untill something arives before they send out another ~$130  light.  There is every posibility that the pic is simply wrong.

Best of luck!, let us know how it works out.

"We sorry you not like your product. Maybe you have a friends who enjoy this red lipped phone? We please to offer you a $5 gift card if you keep phone.

Is there anything else we can help you with?"

This is a very serious situation but that is some funny stuff. I hope it all works out and I'm sure it will.

well, worse case scenario i can see is you wait twice as long as you should for shipping of your v60c, and have a huge set of lips to play with while your waiting. may i suggest a pound of tanerite in those big lips?

Man, you're not alone Frown

 I talked to Sharon on chat and without even looking at the picture from the link i gave her, she assured me that my order is ok ...???? She even told me that the picture of the bag was for the packaging, once again without her even bother look at the picture link i gave her. This is my 29th purchase from DD. I hope it just a mistake of sending out the wrong pic

Meanwhile on BudgetPhoneForum someone is saying, DUDE, I ordered a limited edition KXT-108 and DD sent me a picture of some flashlight!  What am I going to do with a flashlight????

 

LOL.

 

Anyway I hope it arrives.  With my recent DD orders I have not received any photo at all.

i had shopping several times from DD but they never invited me to see the package before. So, i hope not but, this maybe their way to prepare you to shock. You still have time to say" WTF" before package arrives Smile

Don't panic. I also received wrong picture of stuff I ordered last time. However, the order arrived as it should. All items were correct.

That literally made me laugh out loud - I mean, in real life. Big Smile

On a more serious note, I wouldn't worry too much. It's happened to me before (still got the correct item but was sent the wrong picture of a nondescript box). Worst case is you'll have to wait another 4-8 weeks for your light and get a free phone you can donate to Goodwill or something. Now that I think about it, this may even make for a good Secret Santa gift... or it may get your fired. SurprisedInnocent

We got lucky having Summer here to help sort out the mess of DD which isn't rare at all. Getting anything done in a reasonable manner through dino's support is a very time and patiance consuming task. I had 20+ back and forth mail communciation with them before solving a few issues. They eventually did but i think it was due to my persistance more than anything. What a huge waste of time! Summer however handles issues promptly and professionaly tho.

Do a review of the lip phone if you get it. Smile It has to have an illuminated display and a li-ion battery afterall. Smile

 Well, it is easy for you to say. This is a $132 item. Don't tell me you weren't shock at all when you first look at the pic. 

 WE are all adults here. Nobody were crying, yelling and insult all over . This is not DD=avoid thread. This is what the forum for, sharing experiences. I wasn't going to post the pic if i didn't see the OP picture. In this case, posting here will help in the future if i need proof for the wrong item. 

 Honestly i think it was just a matter of sending wrong picture as i stated above.

Indeed it is. But being on the budget forum... spending $132 in HK isn't my cup of tea either. (very mildly said)
