SOPOGODANG IS A HUGE SCAM!!!! INDONESIA SCAMM COMPANY!!!

I ORDERED THROUGH THEM A ESPRESSO MACHINE ($2,200.00), THEY WANTED ME TO MAKE A BANK TRANSFER, I INSISTED IN USING PAYPAL, SO AFTER A COUPLE OF DAYS THEY AGREED. THEY CONTINUED HARRASING ME TO RELEASE PAYMENT SO THEY WOULD SHIP THE GOODS. I CALLED PAYPAL AND THEY ADVISED ME THAT THE COMPANY HAD TO SHIP THE GOODS BEFORE THE PAYMENT WAS RELEASED FOR MY PROTECTION BUT THEY CONTINUED EMAILING ME TO MAKE PAYPAL RELEASE THE PAYMENT OR THEY WOULD CANCEL THE TRANSACTION, IN ANOTHER WORDS THEY WERE SIMPLY TRYING TO SCAMM ME. DON'T FALL FOR THIS!!! THIS IS NOT A COMPANY, THEY ARE ONLINE PRAYING ON PEOPLE LOOKING FOR CHEAPER GOODS TO SEE IF THEY FALL FOR THEIR CORRUPTED WEB OF THIEFTS. I LEARNED MY LESSON, ALTHOUGHT I DID NOT GET SCAMMED BUT I COULD OF, SO THE REASON I WANT TO PUT IT OUT THERE... BUY MADE IN USA, YOU'RE BETTER OFF, A LITTLE MORE BUT AT LEAST YOU KNOW YOU'LL GET YOUR PRODUCT ;)

Scam-Sopogodang

Update by user May 31, 2016

Original review posted by user May 30, 2016
Hi there, Same thing happened to me. I intended to purchase a Survey total station from this sopogodang store with $1200, as the price is very attractive and it's brand new. The seller Prima's very friendly at first and she promise to deliver the equipment as soon as she get the payment. Once I have done the bank transfer, she become impossible to contact with. So be careful everyone, avoid this CRIMINAL ORGANISATION. Anyway, does anyone knows how to deal with them as I want to get my money back and I don't want the others suffer the same thing. I have their bank transfer details and everything and trying to find a solution for it.

Non delivery of Items

I would advise anyone to avoid trading with this organisation as it is a front for dishonest and criminal dealing. They insist on Bank Transfer even though the website says Paypal accepted and once the money is received they will not deliver and refuse to answer emails. Bayu is very nice and appears easy to deal with but all this changes once money is received - from then on he becomes unable to be contactable and you have lost your money. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES DEAL WITH THIS ORGANISATION AS YOU ARE AT GREAT RISK OF LOSING YOUR MONEY NO MATTER HOW ATTRACTIVE THE PRICES APPEAR.

Still no supply of reel.

This companies' website says "no cheats to customers"- what a joke. It is obvious they never have any intention to supply goods ordered and are only a scam designed to defraud people of their money. If you have any inclination to deal with Sopogodang Store be warned that you have little or no chance of getting goods for which you have paid. They are an outright criminal organisation who will be very nice until you pay your money then refuse to answer any communications.

Scam

I ordered 5 fureal ponies from this store through paypal. Not only were they not sent he never would reply. I got my money back through paypal but it seems funny after I purchased the item disappeared on his site when I got my money back from paypal the items show up again. If I could go to Indonesia I would wring his *** neck. My grand daughter got all excited now I have a disappointed 4 year old. NEVER BUY FROM THIS COMPANY BUYER BEWARE If you want a disappointed child hes the way to go. Paypal will probably suspend his account and he'll use another name and try to sell or ask for a bank transfer

Fishing reel ordered and paid but not delivered.

I purchased an electric fishing reel from this store and despite their website saying PayPal was accepted they insisted on bank transfer being the only payment method. Sent 849AUD to the bank account given only to have it rejected as this was wrong account. A bank fee of 45AUD was charged by their bank so I resent the amount less the fees to an new account nominated by them. They then demanded an additional 10% for taxes (no tax is charged for Australian imports under 1000AUD) which I grudgingly sent on 01/05/2015. Since then I have not received the reel and the store manager will not reply to my emails and just hang up on my phone calls. Since four months have passed and I still have not received the goods I can only come to the conclusion that this store is a front for dishonest and criminal dealings and would advise prospective customers to avoid any dealings with them as I feel you will lose your money.

Paid for electric fishing reel not delivered

Over a month ago I ordered an electric fishing reel as the price seemed good. I was a little concerned that, despite their website saying PayPal was accepted they insisted bank transfer was the only acceptable payment method. After my bank transfer was returned because I was given the incorrect account by Bayu I sent it again only to have my order cancelled for non payment. Bayu then demanded an extra payment of $84AU and as my bank has a minimum of $100AU I sent this amount on 1/05/2015. Since then I have had no communication with Sopogodang Store despite many emails being sent to Bayu. I have resent copies of my latest payment but still have not received a reply.

Still no fishing reel and no reply to many emails. Do not deal with this organisation.

This dealer is obviously a criminal so do not buy anything from him as, no matter how good the price seems, you will lose your money.

Did not deliver product after payment was made

I purchased a baseball bat from SOPOGODANG.COM for my son which the company said they had, and to complete the order they informed me I must wire the money to them and they would deliver the bat. Upon wiring the money ($59 plus $45 wire charge)and confirming the wire reached SOPOGODANG.COM, The company then tells me all orders must be greater than $250. Since I did not need any additional merchandise, I kindly asked for my money back. After many emails back and forth, which they were quick to respond, SOPOGODANG.COM agreed to send the money back and NEVER DID. I SENT MANY EMAILS TO THIS COMPANY AFTER THAT AND THEY CHOSE TO IGNORE IT. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY THEY ARE CROOKS AND CAN NOT BE TRUSTED NO MATTER HOW MUCH CHEAPER THE ITEM(S) MAY APPEAR. BUYER BEWARE!

Thank you for your revew

#870873

Forgot, now it's: sopogodangstore.com and the emailadress of HALO BCA is: halobca@***.co.id

#870871

I had the same issue. Ordered and wired eur.

107,- from the Netherlands. Still not enough: after the wiring they said that the total amount had to be $250,- or more.

They are possibly into money laundering.

Made the case at the CSO of their Bank (HALO BCA in Indonesia) and added a police report from the Netherlands. Wonder if this will get me my money back.
