Do You Buy Online?

Mamarazzi's camera batteries were going kaput and she spotted a good deal in one of the online discount site.

Hence she bought a set of Sony Batteries with charger. The terms was that the product would be ship out after a certain date and it should reach the recipient within 10 days.

Mamarazzi waited and waited. On the 12th day, she e-mailed the company. It shocked her when received reply from the company that the product had been shipped out and was delivered.


Pickup DateCn.NumberRef.NumberOriginDestinationStatusRecipient Name
08/06/2012525XXXXX -HEAD QUARTERS SHAH ALAM HEAD QUARTERS SHAH ALAMDelivered 11 Jun 2012 11:50KALDIP XXXXXX-XX-5216

WHAT!?? Kaldip?? Who the heck is Kaldip? We don't have anyone by the name of Kaldip in our home. And on the date of delivery, Mamarazzi was home. Why nobody press the door bell?

Of course ler, Mamarazzi immediately fire out an e-mail to the said company letting them know that she had not received the product and doesn't know any neighbour nor any "Sek Q" by that name.

Any, Mamarazzi is glad to report that after investigation and some ding-dong, the company had sent a replacement unit to Mamarazzi.

But this bring up the question, who the heck is this Kaldip? Parcel obviously not for her, why she so kiasu go and accept.

And how can a reputable courier company simply release the parcel to a third party just like that without any authorisation from the parcel owner? And it is obvious that the parcel is not meant for KALDIP as from the name the person is of Punjabi or Indian heritage while the name on the parcel is clearing a Chinese name.

I wonder in such cases, would the courier company compensate the sender?

  2. You should buy such rechargers with batteries included from Cash Convertors! Damn cheap and no Kaldip there. They only hire Kuldip to kutip cash from you...

  6. Aiyoyoyo... ini not the online company's fault...ini the courier company's fault... suka suka let other people sign and simply release parcel. Mebbe ur not at home, din bother to call, den they simply kasi orang sign and relase, and say job son, can lepas tangan!

  7. I suppose with MyKad number, the guy can be traced. Would be could if they ask for hp number and put that down as well - can call the person. Same thing with poslaju...

    This is one reason why I don't shop or do anything like that online. Very stressful, so worrying. Only buy air ticket...and even that, half my life gone when doing the booking! Old man mah! LOL!!!

  9. Wahh..like that, risky also, hor? I think the courier company doesnt tally the name to the recipient one, unlike the post office... anyone can take as long as the IC is there. Wonder whether they claim back from this K or not.. Rugi macam tu..

  10. I malas go shopping one, so I purchase online quite often. The recent purchase from an online discount company took forever to arrive.
    I purchased a Belkin surge protector and it finally arrived after few exchange of emails, luckily my parcel din end up wif someone named Kaldip. Hahaha... In my opinion, quite safe la, buying online from trustable website, at least can bombard them until a refund is made if you are not satisfied with their products or the stuff is lost in mail but that takes a lot of follow ups and moniitoring lor...

  11. I did online shopping a few times and quite happy with their service.

    Luckily they give u a replacement. One good thing about online is you can email them. No extra cost.....but just need time.

  12. It is bit risky to buy things online but sometimes the deal is so good and can't resist to buy it.

  13. Glad you got a replacement... We do order alot of things online --but haven't had any problems with delivery. Occasionally when mistakes are made with an order, we have always gotten good response from the companies... I love ordering online --and will continue to do it. BUT--there are bad companies online. SO--be sure and order from one that has a good reputation...

  15. That sucks to hear. That's why a lot of people have their online purchases delivered to their workplace, because there's always someone (or themselves) to sign and receive them...

    At least you're getting a replacement... it could be way worse.

  16. Order dengan Shashinki no prob at all. Tapi saya pernah kena dulu macam ni tp itu fault Nationwide. Dia hantar pada orang lain so of course la saya tak dapat ganti barang sebab bukan salah seller tu.

      Then in your case Nationwide should compensate since their staff sent wrongly. Should be to the reciepient only.

  25. i think it's the courier that makes the mistake.. because they don't need to deliver to the addressee, as long as there is somebody who takes the delivery, their job is done..

      they should deliver to the addressee and if unable to deliver they should have aothorisation from the addressee to allow other to collect on their behalf

  26. maybe they just sent to the wrong address, and that Kaldip also blur and just take in the delivery lah.. i think no one's fault here, purely mistakes lah..

    1. At least that courier man called you up and asked if he can leave the item in your mail box. But this one did not contact Mamarazzi at all
