More creepy China

Here’s a bit more creepy China for you. I ordered some clothing from a vendor in China on ebay. I must say, this is has been hit and miss in the past, but getting a refund has never been a problem. However, on this occasion the vendor asked me to supply a Chinese name and ID number! I told them I was not a Chinese national and they could give me a refund, thank you. The whole world should start pushing back or China’s totalitarian nightmare will spread like the plague!

Taiwan customs want to see your ARC number on import so that they can skin you for whatever taxes/fees are due.

Dunno about the Chinese name part.

This is easy to solve: don’t buy from sellers in the PRC.



Chinese sellers are such a scam most of the time. I bought items from China a few times lately and they send me fake tracking numbers for an item that ends up getting delivered elsewhere. This has happened enough times that I don’t trust them.

I think they use the money that they get from buyers, give fake shipping info, and then refund you after 2 months. I think they are using buyers money as float money for other projects.
