    Hi, I know its been a long time since the last post but just to give an update on my outcome, I stupidly fell for the advertising(all be it with a few beers in me) and ordered 2, when they finally arrived they were as you all mentioned totally useless, I contact them via email and they offered 30% refund that I nicely turned down and asked for a full refund, they send me the return address and I posted back to Hong Kong, that was over 2 months ago and I can see by the tracking number that it was not delivered and is back in Australia, then out of the blue they emailed me asking if I have posted back as they have not received them. I did a bit of internet detective work and found this blog, after reading all your comments I jumped on to PayPal to lodge a complaint and refund(see below what I send) 2 mins after lodging they refunded me, thanks all for your help and hope you all got a bit of luck and got your money back

    Cheers

    Grant

    Hi, I am sure you have had multiple complaints about this company, PayPal needs to remove themselves as a payment option for such a scam, I received the items that are not fit for purpose and returned them in October but have yet to receive a refund, can PayPal please refund me ASAP ... Kind Regards Grant

    upon trying to order the site offers the use of PayPal to make a payment but paper after It tries to login it flashes a message that states that buzz b gone Is not currently excepting payments from PayPal. This is the first website that Advertised payment by PayPal but when attempted PayPal appears to have refused the transaction.

    garbage, very cheaply made, and I new better but fell for it, mosquitos aren't attracted to light so don't waste your money...

  • September 8, 2020 at 2:55 PM by an anonymous user from: Williamstown, New Jersey, United States

    This mosquito trap is worthless. After three days plugged in outside we only had a few small bugs - no mosquitos. Our property is overrun with mosquitoes and was hoping for some relief but not so with these devices. I tried calling the number that appears on my charge but this is a bogus number. I checked their website hoping to find an address or valid phone number but to no avail. This is obviously a scam and I hope this prevents some people from ordering this product.

    This is a useless piece of plastic. I used it outside (even let it run overnight) and it only caught 2 small moths. Yet, I got eaten alive when I sat in the same area as the device. I have emailed twice, called and tried to 'chat' with them for a refund and have not received a response. Next step will be the BBB.

  • September 1, 2020 at 9:28 PM by an anonymous user from: Parkville, Maryland, United States

    Yes, I had very similar experience with Buzz B Gone like everyone above. They actually sent me two totally fake cheap mosquito traps, which don't cost more than $7 each and don't even work at all! They haven't attracted a single mosquito, while we have been fighting with hundreds of them on our patio! I was asked to pay $95 for the two useless mosquito traps. I wrote back to Buzz B Gone and asked for my money back, but they didn't respond first and then offered me a 20% off. I told them I'm in the 30 day money back guarantee period and I haven't heard back from them since then. I plan on filing a dispute through PayPal. Hopefully, I can get my money back.

    This company is a complete scam and it looks like they are paying a lot of money for advertisements and posts at many trusted websites, so they can attract more people. Don't buy anything from this company! It is a money trap not a mosquito trap!

    Lysol wipes scam site still up and running. Site that scammed me is lysol99.com. I ordered lysol wipes from what appears to be a legitimate site but its a scam. I received a order confirmation and invoice but that was the last correspondence. I received email from jenniferrod848@gmail.com when I requested a tracking number to track my order. The email response only said the my order was being prepared for shipment. The following day my account was charged for the total amount by a company named Harrington Insurance Company Florida thats when I knew for sure that I had been scammed.

    My husband ended up with a $100.93 charge from BuzzbGone. We received 4 units in July and another 4 in August. I have tried to reach them repeatedly but NO response to the email. No phone listed that I can call. However, they promise NO HASSLE RETURNS. If anyone knows how to get in touch with this company, please reply to this comment.

    On 8/12 BuzzBGone sent me an email stating the item shipped on 8/6. They provided a tracking link.

    Tracking link said there was no tracking info.

    Tried contacting the company via email twice. No response.

    I do not have much confidence in PayPal, as they did not refund my money on another fraudulent transaction. PayPal initially refunded my money, then they changed their minds and charged me for it, without the special financing I originally had. Hopefully they will provide better service to me for this time.

  • August 16, 2020 at 5:30 AM by an anonymous user from: Jerusalem, Israel

    Never got the unit neither any response to several complains.

  • August 13, 2020 at 8:51 PM by an anonymous user from: Oklahoma, United States

    I filled out an order but didnt complete transaction.they sent me a text that the order dint go through. I checked and they had changed the price from 39.95 to 59.95, so I didnt order. They went ahead and charged me for two of them and sent two. They are junk. Mailfraud. Talking to a lawyer.

    I purchased 2 buzz b-gone insect zappers. What I received in the mail are 2 boxes that say mosquito UV trap, not a name brand. The bottom of it says " name: mosquito lamp". Nowhere on the packaging does it say "Buzz b-gone".

  • August 7, 2020 at 6:05 PM by an anonymous user from: Kokomo, Indiana, United States

    I never received the package. One (1) month later. I can't get a hold on the company online or by phone. Getting ahold of my credit card company to dispute the charge. Buzz B Gone looks to be a scam.

  • August 7, 2020 at 12:19 PM by an anonymous user from: St Louis, Missouri, United States

    Buzz be gone is a scam. Don't give them your money

  • August 3, 2020 at 8:27 AM by an anonymous user from: Springdale, Arkansas, United States

    The above comments helped me A LOT. I would love to find some way to sit outside without applying spray. I can't seem to find anything that will work. Anyone have any suggestions?

    • August 16, 2020 at 5:56 PM by an anonymous user from: Tustin, California, United States

      Amazon has something very similar. It is called Katchy. Gets pretty good reviews.

  • August 2, 2020 at 1:13 AM by an anonymous user from: Seguin, Texas, United States

    I made the mistake of ordering from buzzbegone.com. I never received the package and can't get a hold on the company. They are definitely a fraud

  • July 29, 2020 at 5:47 PM by an anonymous user from: Saint Clair Shores, Michigan, United States

    Product doesn't even draw in smoke. 4 days I was eaten alive by bugs. There wasn't anything inside at all. They give you the runaround trying to get refund. Warning, It's a lie.

  • July 29, 2020 at 11:37 AM by an anonymous user from: Buffalo, New York, United States

    I wanted to order but made a mistake and I can’t get them on phone or message them I’ll have to call bank to cancel payment to them

  • July 24, 2020 at 3:27 PM by an anonymous user from: Murray, Kentucky, United States

    I had ordered two outdoor fold chairs that rock and was sent these nylon rope hammocks.

    This so called company wants me to send pictures of tracking number and products received but gives no way to email pictures. I paid a little over twenty dollars and they offer me back $5.00.

    Second time this has been done. About the same time I ordered and paid for a prototype hand cart that supposedly did more and I was sent a nail manicure set and an airbag gadget.

    I am still going to try sending pictures but to you because it is all a tantalizing scam.

    Also about same time I ordered and paid for am office chair that folds out into a bed...can't wait to see what piece of junk they send for that!

    ...

    Kay S...

    I just got scammed...have tried to stop thru Paypal.

    • August 13, 2020 at 9:10 PM by an anonymous user from: Barrhaven, Ontario, Canada

      Hi, I took the chance and purchased it. It has been more than 5-6 days and there is no updated. I now realized that it is fraudulent and scam.

      I have disputed the purchase with paypal.
