@torriem Had brought this scam up before, I have finally run into it. Ali express is a good place to buy electronic components and overall over many years the experience has been very positive. But lately it seems extremely buyer beware.
So I ordered a PIPO X4 tablet from SC Store, DHL shipping says it has already left mainland china, then I get this message.
Dear, your city is remote please solve soon . Parcel in the DHL OFFICE .
Dear here is 3 suggestions:
1 You can change another address , the city code and city name will be not remote again ( you can check with your local DHL/FEDEX for checking )
2 Remote fee USD33 ,you can buy directly to firstname.lastname@example.org our paypal account, then you no need to change address.
3 We can send your parcel by airline, then you no need to change your address , airline will be a little slow ,but safe enough .
Please solve .
Dear,any news ?
Ali express does have a way to report these types of scams, and this was reported.
