During June this year I was looking to buy a pair of Adidas Training Shoes, they were around £40 but sold out everywhere, a friend told me to try a French website called salefr2016.xyz which sold clothing etc in France.

The site was in French but I clicked on the English flag (since removed) and found they had the trainers on the site in English money for £21 including delivery, so I ordered them but after paying with my Credit Card the page went blank, so I attempted to start again but my Malwarebytes then popped up and said it is a malicious site, so I left the site.

At the end of September I got a charge on my Credit Card for £38 from HAPPYONLINESTORE SHENZHEN CHN So I contacted my Credit card company and they challenged the charge and refunded me the £38.

Last week I received a box with 2 pairs of counterfeit ray ban sunglasses that I didn't order, after much googling I found that salefr2016.xyz is located at the same address in Shanghai as Happy Online Store so I contacted my Credit Card company who said that this kind of fraud is becoming quite common, I also contacted Happy Online Store and asked what was going on?

This is the reply I eventually received after I asked for my money back and said the unordered good's were counterfeit:

Really sorry to hear that.
After double check with our shipping department,I think they mixed your order to others.
It is really our mistake,but please check the quality ,it is also worth the money you paid.
If you want to return or exchange. we can only do it after we got your return package.
It really take long time for the process.
Also in our experience, it always hard to get the return package from customer.
If package lost or damaged, we can not do the refund or exchange.
So would you please just think twice to keep the items okay?
we can refund you 5Euro to your card okay?
Sorry again for all the inconvenience.

I then told them that it was their responsibility to ensure the goods were returned safely, not mine as I didn't order anything and to refund me, this is today's reply:

Well we can refund you 10Euro,we really can not offer more.hope you can understand and accept.

So I would suggest if anyone recommends salefr2016.xyz to avoid it.

Sorry to hear that you got dicked about, but the website's URL alone just screams SCAM.

Not sure what warranted my comment to get removed but I was, and still am genuinely shocked at the link.

YouDontWantToKnow sums it up well with his first 6 words though.

You should arrange an appointment with a Barclays digital eagle OP to stop anything like this happening again to you.

How did you even find the site in the first place?!

I'm confused, what was the £38.00 you were refunded for? And did this store charge you again or you just received the sunglasses?

X) why did you even type that site in your url box?

No gain without risk, if too bad, buy in EU as you are covered by EU consumer protection law.

Pahaha, to be fair, by the time they get the 10 Euros to you they'll probably be worth about 38 quid. :p

From the text, I believe the £38.00 was charged, this was refunded, & now Mark5211 has two pairs of (counterfeit) sunglasses, a refund from the credit card issuer, & is still trying to get more than 10 Euros from the Happy Online Store.

Some people are never satisfied!

Perhaps, in a surprise twist, Mark5211 runs the happy online store, and this is a piece of uniquely intelligent marketing, tailored beautifully to the Hotukdeals community.

I know that I, for one, have just quit my job and ordered 6000 pairs of Adidas running shoes. Gonna Ebay the ones that arrive, along with my 12000 pairs of sunglasses. I can live comfortably off the 60,000 Euro's whilst I move them on. Also, I needed some running shoes, so.....
