That just seriously blows....I would have had such an issue with that! I would have said a few teens with social media $20 for an hour of their time to trash the distributor! Smile

I had a problem with a furnace and A/C installation, several calls, many excuses, no resolution -- the Mrs started on twitter, facebook, instragram....at one point I think there were 4 different work vans on-site. Smile

RE: What have you got on order ?
Surfing the net and at FT wondering how they can undercut just about anyone with "authentic" gear specially when it says it's authentic then on the site it explains it as :

"Please Note: The Smoktech security stickers on the product are removed so that this product can be offered to customers like you at the lowest price possible."

OMG I didn't realize that holographic sticker or security features were such a cost consideration in the manufacturing bottom line at SMOKTECH Smile

This is my Saturday evening laugh....I pulled the above directly from the FT website... Smile

RE: What have you got on order ?
It's because they're not an authorised distributor, they've bought the stock cheap from a wholesaler. All the stuff they say is legit actually is, I've bought hundreds of pounds worth from them, even though they say the tags are removed they're usually too lazy to actually do so. Most are shipped exactly as they left the factory Wink

I emailed them and told them they were dishonorable, man did I get the cold shoulder from them after that haha seem'd like I'd said the ultimate swear word! 

I'd never run gearbest down, call gearbest out for it, tell anyone the name of the company that had me wait four months, even I'm not that vindictive toward gearbest.

That is good to know...I seriously doubt most consumers would check the authenticity of a new purchase unless there was a problem anyway...or maybe it's just me....I haven't knowingly bought any clones nor any clearance 3rd party unless you call B&M resellers.... most of my gear has been purchased at shelf price...unless it was something that was being cleared to make room for newer stuff like most of my RDAs.....

Hi Bob - I more than understand that - their site is full of goodies. BTW I am thinking of getting another Corolla - in a different colour [Image: tongue.gif] - it is the most brilliant tank - I fill it with one flavour and then drip another flavour from time to time into it - some of the 'mingles' are wonderful[Image: smile.gif]. I hope you have a good day. Cheers.
