I ordered a ram3500 trax ride on toy for my granddaughter for Christmas on 12-24-2019 and they sent me some ugly knock off POS rayban sunglasses. When I told them they sent the wrong thing, they said they would refund 50% of it. Long story short, I got them to agree to 99% of cost. They still tell me to this day(4-7-20) to “please wait patiently.” These people are scammers. I wish I would have read the reviews but got excited that I had found this toy for so cheap. Stupid me, I know. Let my lesson help y’all.

I have the sameexact experience. Cheap sunglasses, still no refund from December of 2019. If I hear please wait patiently one more time I may lose it

I too got these ridiculous ray ban sunglasses (straight from China, it appeared). I had ordered a segway scooter. WTF Way to go Indiana

I have been dealing with these thieves since before Christmas. I ordered the unicorn ride on toy for my Granddaughter for Christmas and I received some cheap sunglasses labeled ray ban. I have been emailing them about it and keep getting lied to and also have requested a refund, but nothing. STAY AWAY FROM THIS SITE!

As I have read from other hemlinics users, I too ordered a Barbie camper ride on toy around Christmas 2019 before reading the reviews and about 4-6 weeks later recieved a pair of sunglasses. The box and glasses holder was RayBan labeled but the glasses were not labeled.

Also, right after ordering, I emailed their help email address trying to get clarification on delivery. They responded that they would email shipping info once item shipped. They did that and I received an email with a link. That link took me to their tracking website. That look suspicious so I read their terms of service and privacy policy before entering the website. I was not comfortable going to the website so I didn't.

Once I recvd the glasses, I responded to the prior emails that they sent me the wrong item, sent pictures of the items they sent me along with screen shots of their website of the item I ordered. Here was their response:


Thank you for your quick reply,return the item will takes a very long time .

After we receive it then we can arrange refund and it also costs money and make trouble.

How about we refund 60% to you for a part of headphone cost & shiping fee

The items you keep it for compensation and do not return it.

Thank you."

I then emailed them that I wanted a FULL REFUND as their website on the front page states "Freed Shipping and Returns on all orders".

Here was their response to that:

So sorry for the inconvenience.

We can apply the refund to you but before that you need post the item back.

All of these may takes a very long time and also costs money.

How about we refund(80% of original price)to you for a part of product cost & shipping fee?

The items you can keep it for compensation and do not need return it.

Thank you.

I then told them I again I wanted a FULL REFUND and reminded them of what their website states regarding free shipping and returns on all orders. Here was their next reply:

So sorry for the inconvenience.

We can apply the refund to you but before that you need post the item back.

All of these may takes a very long time and also costs money.

How about we refund(90% of original price)to you for a part of product cost & shipping fee?

The items you can keep it for compensation and do not need return it.

Thank you.

At this point, I am contacting my credit card company to assist and report this.

Stay away from hemlinics.

If you look closely at the ride on toys webpages, you will see the same photos for different items but different names and different prices, all in the $50-70 range. But the Barbie toy elsewhere is around $300-400.

Stay away, please. Everyone.

I ordered the Barbie camper before Christmas from Hemlinics. Of course I didn't see the reviews until after I ordered. Six weeks later I received an order from Hemlinics. It was a pair of sunglasses. What a rip-off.


January 26, 2020 at 5:50 AM by an anonymous user from: Thomasville, North Carolina, United States

I ordered 2 hoverboards but then something told me to look at reviews and as soon as I did I immediately emailed to cancel order. Of course because I used my debit card they got the money. I have been emailing and emailing them I received a email several times saying 7-10 days and it been almost a month and I still have not received a refund. There has got to be away to have this website shut down. If anyone knows who or what needs to be done to get these taken down please advise?

I ordered doll house OVER a month ago and have not received it and they WONT REFUND ME!

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
