So, I ordered a little piece of electronic equipment from lightake.com last month despite my immediate spider-sense tingling. Chinese website with bad English selling electronics at prices that were a fair bit below market price… how could I have been so foolish?
Order was placed on the 8th of December 2010. Apparently, the order left China on the 19th of December, and magically arrived in Malaysia on the 18th of December before then being posted to me (unless your name is Marty McFly and your sidekick is Doc Brown this does not make sense). Of course, the current date is the 13th of January 2010… which would mean that going from Malaysia to Malaysia is infinite times the distance of China to Malaysia (since they managed to go back in time doing this).
Any emails to their customer service are immediately replied to with big words like “patiently”, “understanding”, and “wait”. Dude, if I put the package on a little paper boat it would already have arrived at my house… and I don’t even live next to any water that connects to the sea.
Strangely there is “some” mix of reviews online about lightake.com – possibly planted I suppose… I for one am going to star bitching about them on every site I see their name at.
