    Default Re: Do not use strawberry net=credit card fraud

    When I deal with Strawberrynet I use PayPal, and have never had a problem with them.

    When I ordered l'instant edp yesterday the paypal option was not there, so i paid by credit card. Today they asked for a utility bill which I don't have since they're all in my parents' name. Has anyone sent or not sent a bill after receiving this message? how long did your refund take if you didn't send a bill? any feedback would help thanks

    It was early yesterday morning, they sold out really fast cause later on I checked to see if I can still add and it didn't. They probably removed it by now.

    Keep checking cause I'm assuming my order is going to be cancelled, I ordered two bottles so they'll restock it eventually.

    Default Rant.

    I wanted to buy Pure Malt and it was still being sold on strawberrynet about two weeks ago for around 60 pounds.

    A BNer said best not to risk it in another thread (not to me) so I assumed it was a fake site or something. Then I see someone make a thread about strawberrynet asking if it's legit and everyone in that thread saying it is. Missed out on Pure Malt because of that.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure how to respond. Why believe a poster without doing your own due diligence?

    Why not check the Basenotes Awards to see how well regarded Strawberrynet is?
    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/277...2011-Finalists

    Why not do a search on Basenotes to see how StrawberryNet is regarded?

    What lesson have you learnt from this experience? How will you behave differently in the future?

    A life lesson learnt, eh? Be glad that it's only Pure Malt. You gotta decide for yourself. After all it's your $ you're spending.

    Have to agree with the replies above.

    There is quite a bit of info on Basenotes about Strawberrynet, most of it quite positive if I remember correctly. You probably should've checked some more info before basing your decision on what one member said. And BTW, just because someone is a Basenoter doesn't automatically mean they know what they are talking about or are more credible than anyone else.

    To the OP: Basenotes is a great resource, but it's not the only one...put Google to use, and do a little bit of research. Just because a Basenoter says it, doesn't mean it's true.

    Cheers, I actually also agree with the above posters. I'm just kind of bored so decided to post this thread.

    I agree. I wouldn't fret too much. I think you'll be able to find it again at a good price.

    From my research online reviews for strawberry.net showed many reports of fakes.

    A local seller has it for the same price as on strawberry.net. If you want I can pm you his contact e-mail so you can discuss with him.

    I can't now because I bought Le Male instead. Unless he has more than one then it's not possible.

    I've ordered multiple times from Strawberrynet.com (Muscs Koublai Khan x 2 /Dior Homme Intense) and never had any issues.

    Actually, I think they may have had it on their website but either didn't know they were out of it or forgot to take down the link. There was that much demand and they had it that long after it was released? I don't think so. Also, right after people started mentioning it was available there, it suddenly disappears. That seems a bit fishy.

    OK, so we're flooded with threads (on a very large forum) for days (or longer) by various members saying more or less they'll sell a kidney or barter their first born for a bottle of Pure Malt, or starting threads just to say that they want to smell it but haven't gotten a chance to. Then someone decides to post a link to a website that has some available. Shortly after it's no longer available on that site. In light of that it doesn't seem that fishy. :P

    To the OP; Just camp eBay. I did and mine's fine.

    I was saying that and the fact that tons of people have been searching for it for a long time makes the whole situation seem a bit strange. Where are the people bragging about how they just got in it the mail from there? Well anyway, I think I'm done with these boards, not really fun anymore. Enjoy all your future fragrance chats, Bye!

    I don't know. I know if I was able to score a fragrance that seems to evoke a riot every time it's name is mentioned with even the possibility of being available, I probably wouldn't tell anyone, just in case I wanted to get more or something. Plus there are WAY more lurkers than posters it seems as well. Just me though.

    PS. Nothing meant personally against you or what you said when I quoted you. It just didn't seem as odd to me as you thought it looked.

    Hmm... some people do need to take a chill pill. The problem with written communication is it misses out on the tone of delivery & loses a big part of the poster's original intentions. So try not to be too quick to take offence. Cool?

    To the OP, how's the Le Male working out for you?

    The reason you don't hear about people receiving it is because they hype it up so much that when they realize it's a toned down version of A*men with a whiskey note that lasts all of 30 minutes and basically the same patchouli drydown. It's good, but not the holy grail.
