Is Chillwell AC a Scam? Chill Well Portable AC Review

The Chillwell AC is not an AC unit as they claim. The so-called portable AC unit is a swamp cooler. I ordered 2 Chillwell AC units and the units I received were not battery-powered as advertised, but had to be plugged in to operate. In addition, they operated on "water curtains" which had to be filled with water and then placed in the freezer before inserting into the unit, rather than filling the unit with water as advertised.

Once inserted in the unit, the frozen water curtains lasted only about 30 minutes before they needed replacement, & the cooling effect was not adequate. I called customer service for a return authorization and refund and was informed that I would not be refunded the return postage even though the product was not as advertised. I would not recommend purchasing Chillwell AC Portable Air Conditioner.

Waste of money. Inquired how to return it for full refund as advertised but that is a lie. It has to be in the original unopened packaging so how would you know it is worthless if it was never used? It does not cool; the water tank is empty after 2 1/2 hours after spritzing humidifier air into a room that does not cool. Scam

I ordered a Chilwell 2.0 24 hours ago and I still haven't received an order confirmation does this mean that in addition to having me scammed they also stole my money?

CHILLWELL is a HORRIBLE product. Didn't work properly right out of the box after following directions exactly. Only one side provided misting, the other side didn't. For almost$100–Unacceptable.

I contacted customer service who offered me $30 to keep it. When I responded that I'm still left paying $70 for your product that doesn't work, they offered me 50% off for the broken product.

They Advertise that you can return it within 60 days for a full money back guarantee less shipping and handling if you are completely unsatisfied for a 60 day money back guarantee.

Then they said you can return it but the fine print many pages in says you can return only if unused and in original packaging. How would I know it doesn't work unless I used it?

So, my bad for believing their sponsored 5 star reviews on their website end on every other Google site where there are named comes up.if you look at those sponsored websites it. Says that it's number one rated. There is no place on their website that allowed me to provide a review.

The kid who invented this is going to make his millions with this inferior product and then you'll never see it again.

Thank you for exposing this scam. As I suspected, this is yet another "revolutionary" device that is, in reality, is just another glorified mini-swamp cooler like so many flooding the market today. Larger swamp coolers cool by blowing air across water in copper tubes, but the drawback is the humidity produced by this process. 60 years ago, when I was growing up in Northern California, larger swamp coolers worked very efficiently and cheaply because of the extremely dry climate The minI version, however is probably just too small to be effective. Even if this or any mini-swamp cooler did actually work as the scammers claim, swamp coolers of any sort would never be desirable in the hot, humid climates like we have in the southern states of the US.

Years ago, I purchased what was known a air cooler. It resembled an air conditioner but worked on pouring water into the unit container with ice cubes recommended. The result was that it did not cool at all just sent out water spitting out the front vents of the unit. Chillwell is just a small version of it. The cheaper way to do this is place Ice cubes in a tray in front of a fan.

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
