[Scam] Light in the Box is a joke and most likely a scam
First of all, they don't have a separate billing/shipping address on the initial account creation, so if shipping is not the billing, then you're bill doesn't match your card
Second, they'd already pre-authorized my card, but then told me they wanted a photo copy of it and my drivers license... at they FC? that has scam written all over it.
When I screen shot the authorization on my card from the bank, and told them there was NFW I was sending them pictures of my card or ID, and if they didn't push my order though I was going to flag the transaction on my card as fraudulent and turn them into every agency I can find... they canceled the order.
I'd say beware, they did refund my money, but... they are also foreign so they did not refund the $2 overseas something or another BS fee.

I don't see any reviews that look like they're from unhappy campers.
I've heard enough about light/mini that I'll never do business with them.
Oh, Opera, what have you done?

Agreed. If they're not an out-and-out scam, their customer
disservice is simply abysmal.
