ScamRadar - Report Frauds and ScamsSAFWATOYS – Chicago

SAFWATOYS,located in Chicago is a RIP OFF from the start,they get your money and you get nothing no toys to assemble no refund. Its going on four months and no refund as promised, This company gives no phone numbers, e-mail only. Lopez signed for my $280.00, thats the only name I have, what ever you do don’t send money orders, just ask them if they have any toys in stock first.As far as I’m concerned its wire fraud.

    Subject: Questions about assembling toys

    Hi, I came across your ad for making money by assembling toys and went to your website. I have a few questions for you.

    1) Do you have a phone number?

    2) What does the $90 include? How many toys do you get in your package to assemble?

    3) Do you get any samples or a (compleated product to work off) with your toys to assemble?

    4) How soon does it take to get paid?

    5) Can more than one person from a household do this work?

    Please feel free to call me anytime. I am looking for good stay at home job! And am looking to start A.S.A.P

    Thanks

    I then provided my contact infomation

    Subject: Questions about assembling toys

    I want to be honest with you before you invest any money into the program. The $110 covers your registration fee and you’re shipping on your toys.Then you will have to place a refundable deposit on the amount of toys that you want these toys are not cheap that’s why a refundable deposit is required the fees are one time fees . These die cast cars hold a retail value of $15-$50 a piece. We give you up to 1 month to assemble the toys but it only takes 3-5 minutes to assemble each toy only tools needed is a screw driver. There is no risk involved if there is any problem we will refund your money

    Soon as we receive the toys completed you will receive your deposit back and a shipment of toys along with your paycheck. We cover the shipping cost when you send the toys back to us.The checks are tax free you are responsible for your own taxes we send you a 1099 form at the end of the year.The full amount that you send will be $110 plus the deposit that you select below.We send you all the shipping supplies you will need to complete the job. Its impossible to assemble the toys wrong so there is no toy qualification that your pay depends on.

    We hire people by email only we are a company that’s not open to the public we sell and talk to a lot of companies daily that’s why our reps cant be tied up on the phone with a lot of workers asking questions that can be answered through email .We cant have our reps tied up talking to workers that will neglect all the companies that we sell and talk to daily. Also if you have any problems we want to be able to respond to you right away not have your call drown out buy hundreds of callers and you get up set with our company because you cant get through.

    Select Amount of Toys Price
    900 Toys $165.99
    1700 Toys $299.99
    2100 Toys $489.99
    2800 Toys $975.99

    Subject: Questions about assembling toys

    After I send you my registration fee and refundabe deposit for the toys, how long before I recieve my package? You said you give me a month to to assemble the toys, but what if can assembe it in a week? Can I do this as a weekly package? I am looking at the 1700 toy package. Do you have a limit? What would be the fastest way to send you my money so I can get started? I will be able to do this on the 3rd of September.

    Thank You for your time

    Subject: Questions about assembling toys

    Very Good. Now how long does it take to get my package after I send you $410? That is what I would need to send for 1700 right?

    Safwatoys Responce: Aug 19 2009

    Subject: Questions about assembling toys

    Yes, that amount is correct. Shipping just depends on where you live

    My Responce: Aug 19th 2009

    Subject: Questions about assembling toys

    As far as the 1099 goes: My mother and I will both be doing this. Would it be easier to both get the 900 toy package? Or can you split the 1099 two ways for the 1700 toy package? Half it right down the middle. One in her name and one in my name?

    Thank You for taking the time to answer all my questions.

    Safwatoys Responce: Aug 19th 2009

    Subject: Questions about assembling toys

    yes that’s fine you both can send $90 apiece and you can slip the $299.99 for the 1700 toys

    Gave my contact information once again

    Safwatoys Responce: Sept 4th 2009

    Subject: Tracking Information: SENT $$

    Hello-
    Yes, we are processing you now. With shipping and processing it normally takes about 14 business days, not including Saturday or Sunday. It only takes this long the first time because we have to put you into our system and make sure that all of your information is correct so that we don’t send they toys to an incorrect address with the wrong information. So we have to process you into our system which takes a few days and then we have to ship it out to you which is more time. We want to make sure that all of your information is correct, because we don’t want to send out materials out the wrong information and then your upset at us because we went by the information provide to us by you. We want you to be apart of this company so we want to make sure that everything is correct.

    My Responce: Sept 4th 2009

    We are waiting on a shipment because we had workers order more toys that expected. We are expecting a shipment soon and then your cars will go out. We would like to let you know your money is not at any risk dealing with this company. I want to deeply apologize to you for all of this hassle that you are going through with Safwa.

    Hi…. Well today is Thursday Sept 24, 2009. This should be the day I am suppose to receive my toy package! You said up to 14 days not including weekends and I also did not count Labor Day. I sent you my money overnight and you received it on Friday Sept 4th, 2009… So checking the status of my shipment. On Sept 15th,2009 you sent an apology saying you are expecting a shipment soon and then my cars will be sent to me. Have you sent me my package yet? I live in Oroville, CA…. Please let me know my status for shipment

    Thanks Again

    Safwatoys Responce:Sept 24th 2009

    Subject: Toy shipment???

    No, we wont have an arrival date for the toys until they reach customs. At that point is when we will have a date for you to receive your toys.

    Subject: Toy shipment???

    How long do you think this is going to take???

    Safwatoys Responce: Sept 27th 2009

    Subject: Toy shipment???

    We can’t say right now because the shipment has to arrive then it has to go through customs because it’s coming from overseas. Then once it’s out of customs then it will be shipped to us, then it will be shipped to you.

    My Responce: Sept 28th 2009

    Subject: Toy shipment???

    Well how long have you been waiting for your order? How long does customs usually take? What is the status of this hold up? I would really like to know. It has been almost a month now since I sent you my money. I haven’t even received anything from your company reassuring me that this is the real deal. I am starting to worry a bit now. I know from past e-mails that more than one question to an e-mail gets confusing for you and I am usually only answered one question out of the three or four that I ask, but if you would please take the time and answer my questions, maybe I would feel better? Maybe send me some concrete evidence in the mail that, this is a real company and I didn’t just send my money to “some fly by night, rip off e-mail address”. Again I will give you my mailing address. Thanks again for your time. Please keep me informed!

    Again gave my contact information

    Safwatoys Responce: Sept 29th 2009

    Subject: Toy shipment???

    No, we havent gotten our toys yet. We will not know an arrival date until it reaches customs. At that point is when we will know when to expect the toys. Once we know that, then we will email you and let you know when to expect your toys because we know that you are very eager to start assembling the toys.

    So, I have written you and you have not responded to me. You will be receiving this e-mail on Monday October 12,2009… I sent you my money and you received it on Sept 4th, 2009… Just how long is this going to take? I think you should have definitely gotten YOUR shipment by now. My question is WHERE IS MINE? If you still have no idea… I think you better just send me back my money! I am not a very happy person at this point and I don’t like being left in the dark with no answers for over a month!

    Subject: So I guess I need to contact the BBB?

    Again I have not heard from you concerning my shipment of toys or my money that I sent to you last month. I guess I need to contact the Better Business Bureau and the FBI. I will do all I can to see that your company is shut down and put out of business. I will also be posting all e-mails on many scam websites so that many others do not not get ripped off like this. I want my money back! You have 24 hours to get back in touch with me or I will be making my contacts and reporting you as a non-reputable company and as a scam company! Today is Wednesday October 14,2009.

    For the last time I gave my contact information

    I Have not heard from this company and yes they have ripped me off! Do Not SEND this company Safwatoys any money it is a scam! I hope this helps anyone thinking about getting involved in this company…. BEWARE! BAD IDEA!
