Block of Gear is a scam site

  • Monetary Loss: $85
When shopping online for Christmas presents, I stumbled upon Block of Gear. There was an item there thought I thought would make a perfect gift, so I purchased it. This was on December 1. I received an email confirming my purchase and then no further communication from them for about 10 days. I then sent them an email asking for an update and tracking number on my item. They ignored this email and the 3 subsequent emails. In my fourth email, I threatened reporting them for fraud. At that point, they did email me back and stated they had never received any of my earlier emails. They provided me with tracking information. When I use the tracking link, it appears that information was sent to FedEx on February 5, but the package was never sent to FedEx or shipped to me. When I again emailed the company about this discrepancy, they again ignored my email. I searched for a phone number to call them with my complaints, and no number is listed anywhere on their website. After further research into this (which I wish I had done before I ever ordered anything) I discovered that many, many people have purchased form Block of Gear and never received their items or any correspondence about said items. They have a Facebook page and I tried to contact them this way as well, but they marked my comments as spam. Others report that they block anyone on their Facebook page that claim their items never shipped.

Hello,

Thank you for your email.
I'm really sorry for this inconvenience.

Kindly inform that the item you ordered is being processed and we need a bit time for processing, checking quality, packing and logistic steps before shipped out.

Please don't worry. We will update tracking number on your order soon.

So your understanding and patience are greatly appreciated.

Thanks and regards.

I now notice that their webpage is offline. I sent another email requesting info on my order and this is what I received.

I have done some research on the internet and found that they are a scam. I payed with PayPal and hope to get my money back but a warning to all DO NOT ORDER from them. I had seen the advertisement for the quilt on Facebook and against my better judgement I went for it. Never again that is for sure!

Ordered quilt - seller from China

Gave money to block of gear website towards quilt from seller from China coming to Canada. They did not put proper info on the item so it was entered digitally? Then stopped at customs in Canada for reason I am not privy to. Apparently item is on its way now though Canada post but I’m not sure if it will even be the item I am expecting. Won’t buy from block of gear again I think they let any one sell on their website for commission of sales.
