    Buyer Beware

    Ebay seller Lightningcases is worthless.

    (yes im mad as hell!)

    i bought a couple cheap cases from them and one was correct, and about the quality i expected for a 2 dollar case. the other which was supposed to be neon green

    For Motorola Droid X MB810 Green Rubberized Hard Case - eBay (item 160469849280 end time Sep-16-10 12:13:15 PDT)

    it came in dark metallic green....



    so i e mailed the seller. they requested a picture, i sent them 2 e mails a text message and a photo bucket link over the next 24 hours. All because they claim to not have gotten my e mails with the pics. Their "engrish" is horrible and i about needed two translators and a supercomputer to translate their e mails. then the last straw...yester day they offered me 50% refund and now today they offer 25% refund with the excuse "sometimes photo different with the actual cases. The keep change the design."

    so i opened a ebay protection case, man this is too much aggravation for 5 bucks...
    someone does not like my signatures, though Benin and satirical, so i just dont have one...

    It kinda looks cool in a way but definitely not what you ordered so I'd be ticked off too. I got a light neon green one at a local cell phone store for $10. I buy cheap when I can.

    at this point its more the lack of customer service than anything. these cases must cost them like 10 cents a piece...im sure they could have sent the right one and not missed it.

    When I got my case on ebay, I saw the same case from two sellers. One was $7.99 with free shipping and came from California. The other was like $4.99 after shipping and came from Hong Kong. I'm all for saving a few bucks but the difference in shipping time and the fact that the seller should speak the same language as me is a big plus.

    As a matter of fact, the case I received was SLIGHTLY different from the one pictured. It was the right color, design, and material, but the speaker cut out was SLIGHTLY different. So I emailed them and they sent me another case FOR FREE. I didn't need to return the first one, I didn't need to get a refund and reorder, nothing. I emailed him and said "hey the case I got is a little different, can I get the one pictured? If not, I understand, because this case is close enough." and he replied with a tracking number for my second case!

    Wow, I rambled on a bit. I hope you get your money back or at least the correct case that you ordered.

    Let me get this straight. You bought $2 cases for a $600 dollar phone, and you are upset because the cases are cheap? The irony here is deafening. I would be more mad at myself than the ebay seller. You ripped yourself off when you think about it

    Those cases are probably tainted with lead and who knows whatever else toxic chemicals... That's some food for thought. Don't buy cheap, underpriced products from China.

    He never complained that the cases were cheap, he is upset because he didn't get what he ordered and the seller is giving him the runaround instead of just sending him the correct product...

    i bought them from a seller located in the US walnut, Ca to be exact. and no im not complaining about them being cheap...i am griping about them because they sent me the wrong color and then gave me a huge hassle about exchanging it.

    had you actually read my post...

    as for toxic chemicals from china...lol find me ten products in your home NOT made in japan or china. your holding one in your hand every time you make a call.
