Genuine Hookahs sold me FAKE THREE KINGS!

47 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

So I placed an order from Genuine Hookahs for a box of three kings coals. I almost ALWAYS order from socialsmoke.com, but Genuine Hookahs was like $5 or $6 cheaper and all I wanted was one box of coals. They arrived today and on first glance I notice the box is stuffed shut! It was so full that whomever sent it to me had to tape it!
It's a Three Kings box, just with different coals! They kinda look like Goldens, but I don't want Goldens. The picture when I ordered showed a roll of Three Kings. I can obviously demand Genuine Hookahs replace my coals for me at no charge. I'm really fucking pissed off at these guys right now. It's a shitty thing to do.
Anywho, here are some pictures:

Yeah, if he doesn't send me a replacement immediately then he can get in big trouble for commiting fraud across state lines or something, right?

your hosed.

First, i'm gonna say "told you so." This is the guy selling nakhla on ebay as "no tobacco" Hookah Molasses and you all say..that's ebay, buyer beware. Now one of us gets shafted and your are in some way SUPRISED?? Saved all of a few bucks buying from a guy who's known for lying and cheating and then you get upset because he lied and cheated...that's pretty funny.

Sorry to sound unsympathetic..but i'm pretty unsympathetic.

You have to contact the police. say you were sent soemthing other than you ordered. Then go to..what was that place John deere claimed his dad worked for..oc3 or something, the place to report internet fraud. and then yuo have to supply his name, what you ordered, what he sent, prove its not the same thing. You can also report him to the Atty. General of the state you live in..the form for that is only a few pages long. Don't forget the time it takes to fill out the police report. Then of course anyone has to actually care you got cheated out of about 15 bucks. Oh ya, mail fraud, so you have to go to the post office, get a form to report that as well...can't imagine what that form looks like.

That should be worth the 5 bucks.

So, who's the next person gonna order from him cause he's a little cheaper and seemed like such a nice guy? hmmm?

Notice the 44 negative reviews that have been withdrawn, the 30+ negatives still there. He clearly blackmails people with revenge negatives to get them to agree to mutually withdrawing them. Nice guy.

The only reason I ordered from them is cause they sponsored my SmokeFest with some 30% off coupons. I know it's not that big of a deal, but I thought I'd at least order something from their site.
And yes, I was aware that the guy is kinda sketchy, but for christ's sake it's a BOX OF COALS. It's gotta be more work just to switch them out than it's worth!

Hmmm......

Suppose 3 Kings could have bought up overruns from the makers of Golden? Worked a deal? Did 3 Kings buy Golden out?

I see what you mean tho.. the 3 kings I use is foiled in silver....

I'd be pissed as hell, but that's just me. Try to get him to send you a new box of authentic ones before you notify the proper authorities.

Damn man that sux, I would complain to him first, then see hwo it goes from there. Everyone saying how you need to go directly to the authorities first is BS, how many people here have bought something and turn out it is not the right thing, maybe not hookah related but from and reatil location. If GH tries to blow smoke up youur ass then def seek out the authroities.

He does sell a coal called "Three Qeens", stating it is almost liek a 3Kings but cheaper, I bet someone stuffed them in a box hoping you would not notice, I would laugh if you get an email from him saying that he had an employee that did it and is now fired...lol... But it does suck that your got those crappy ass looking coals, the wrapper looks like goldens but i bet they smoke/taste like ass.

Keep us informed on how the situation is going
