I have created a new topic to inform you about my experience with geekbuying.com.
I do not want to unleash a debate about the usefulness of foreign orders. I just want to tell you my experience, so you can decide for yourself.
I placed my order on 10/07/2012. I knew that there was public holidays. So I was glad that my order was shipped on 10/17/2012. But then nothing happened. The status of my tracking number has not changed since. And this are 5 weeks now.
I tried to contact geekbuying and get a statement and then later demanded my money back. Except for consolations came no constructive response.
There was no answer at all, when I threatened to inform Paypal.
The status of my tracking number is still the same. With Paypal I will try to get shut my money back.
