Internet Hobbies (do not use them)
Posted by Tickmagnet on Saturday, May 25, 2019 8:26 AM

Just letting other folks know that "Internet Hobbies" is not a business you want to do business with. Guess I'll need to start checking yelp and BBB site before trying to use a hobby site I've never used before. I'll post the yelp reviews and BBB rating as well. The complaints are the same issues I've had with them.

I agree that they should be avoided. I had a similar problem to one cited in the reviews and when I mentioned to them in an email that I would complain on Yelp they told me if I did I'd hear from their lawyer. I complained but needless to say never heard from the lawyer.

Nothing like being told when you inquire that it's on back order but they charged it to my card anyway. My credit card company is taking care of that charge.

Thanks for the links to the BBB and reviews about them.  I hadn't thought about this kind of research.

Sad to see this outfit is still operating this way.  I had a similar experience with them, although my order did eventually ship.

Yep bad way to do business. Don't charge if you can't ship the item. They charged me the very day I ordered it. Then sent me an email saying they were prulling the order. After a week or so with no shipping notice I contacted them and it was suddenly on back order, yet my credit card was charged. 24 days later and several correspondences of we aren't open now we will check next time we are open and then never hearing back was enough for me to believe the complaints and BBB rating. Sad it as it is.

I got a real quick reply from them when I pointed out the yelp reviews and BBB rating and I cancelled the order and told them I was contacting my credit card company to credit the charge back to me. It was not a pleasant email they sent either. Never again will I attempt to do business with these folks.

The issue is resolved since I cancelled the order and the charge has been credited back to me by my CC company.

What is surprising is how long they've gotten away with such shabby practices, and still remain in business.
