February 9, 2022

January 9, 2022 the day I have been clicking the ADD TO CART and buy gaming phone in shopee. I was searching a gaming phone which is affordable and good in quality also, so I found this one

I will not mentioned anyway the price cause it's a little bit small. It looks like convincing right? cause where can purchase this item in a cheap price. I admit I was astonished with its quality when I read all of the descriptions behind that phone. One thing I have doubt cause I never in my life seen huge storage or internal storage ranging 512 gigabytes or more, so think it many times. I checked my laptop and I found out that the laptop capacity can only hold 300 gigabytes. I doubt if the seller telling the truth or not. No one will believe that a phone can hold more than 512 gigabytes above that's insane.

I try to purchase it

I try to purchase the phone albeit there is doubt in my mind that this could be a scam. But my willingness to hold this phone is overwhelming and I can't even wait the item to be in my hand. In the last few weeks I already behind the update Mobile Legend and I'm so eager to play again even a single game. When typhoon Odette hit the Visayas and Mindanao region, I didn't play anymore the game because of the absence of network and electricity. I uninstalled the game, I remember it was, the month of December 20, 2021 which I really missed. When the time passed the network and electricity are already fixed and we're so glad about that but my interest about the game vanished like I don't have the interest to play again the game. I was so depressed during that time cause I don't have any income or job. I'm try to search for a job near on our municipality but nothing happens. I'm so worried like I don't have any contribution to my family. So I contact each of those relatives, classmates and friends just begging if their is a job available but sad to say no one was offered.

Thanks to my friend who teached me about this earning platform which allow me to forgot the game and simultaneously earn BCH. He teached me step by step and it's process until I came up with here. I have made almost 30 articles for almost one month. I'm so fortunate to this cause my depression has been diminished and giving also contribution to my family which I started to pay electric bills for three months, imagine how useful this platform is?

Going back to the main topic, I buy the phone albeit their was a doubts in my heart just to ease my feelings and play again the game. And after 8 straight days of waiting the parcel has arrived and the delivery man was calling me and said " boss prepare money for your parcel (not to mentioned the exact price cause I want it to be private) I was happy and simultaneously excited with little bit of nervous. I payed the item immediately and going home in a rush cause I'm so excited, but when I have unboxed the parcel I was so disappointed because when saw the phone it was not the same with the picture especially when I checked the ratings and comments. I thought it was legit cause alot of buyers were dropping their received item like they don't have any complain. But with me it wasn't the same with the model and brand, I am expecting Realme 8i but the one I've received was different, it was called Phantom phone which literally not notorious and for sure you don't have also idea what kind of model it is.

Trying to return the item

I have decided to return the item and asked advice to J and T office what to do. They have said " contact the seller and said you'll return the item cause it wasn't the same with pictures posted and you'll for a day before you can choose refund or return the item. You cannot immediately return or refund the item in the same time you'll wait a day before you can take another transaction. So I'll just wait tomorrow and try to refund or return the item. When I have message the seller he told be that they will refund it, they asked proof if the item are different from the posted pictures and different model not the exact descriptions of the item. So I immediately send them proofs and they confirmed the it was a genuine complain from me. Thanks to them 😌 for their consideration.

Lesson Learned

I have learnt that before we purchase an item online we must read categorically the descriptions and probably contact the seller if the item was genuine cause of the existing items in online shop and vague and vulnerable to various scam. So I advice to message and ask the seller to send real photos of the item.

I have learned also the playing games excessively can make you out of control like if you lose it. You'll be making decisions unnecessary and you'll get frustrated because of that. Thus you must separate you'll self from that and focus on the things the can give income and at the time can hone your skills.

I mean, ang nakalagay is realme pero phantom ang pinadala. Impossible na magkamali sila ng pinadala. For sure front lang ung realme kuno tas iba naman pala talaga ang ipapadala. Kalinaw linaw naman ata ng phone na niorder mo diba so why. Pero buti at na contact mo ang seller. At willing sila na ibalik.

Be careful. If you think it's too good to be true, then don't purchase it. There's always a catch to offers like that. Don't just rely on the comments, check pictures uploaded on the rating section. You'll pay for the return shipping fee for so they can process your refund upon returning the item. Also check the seller's rating, better yet purchase gadgets online recommended by someone you know or buy from the brand's official store.
