    I sent the money with paypal. I've already been charged and they keep sending me computer generated emails saying payment failed send payment again.

    stay away.

    Have you contacted support? If yes and they haven't answered just go to paypal and ask for refund?

    If you paid by PayPal you're 100% covered, and if you paid by a credit card you are 100% covered too. Just call your CC company and file a chargeback for an unreceived product.

    It sounds like something just went wrong with their eCommerce software, it's a bit premature to say they scammed you. I'm sure they'll refund you or sort out the problem if you contact them.

    Do not do this! This will likely get their account banned!
    Nds-Card.com is the official sponor of the Temp. They are a trusted site and have not scammed anyone since they've started sponsoring us. This maybe an error or something you need to settle with them to correct.
    But do not get paypal involved until it's confirmed an actual scam.

    Yeah, PayPal banned the sale of flashcarts a while ago, so if they find out that the account actually belongs to a flashcart seller, they'll most certainly ban them. I would give nds-card a chance to make up for what was most certainly an error in their software and not something done on purpose.

    Oh ok, didn't know that paypal banned that, ok thanks for the info, it's just that I recently had to go trough a similar situation (a hotel in Amsterdam took my money even after I cancelled the reservation) so the only way to get my money back was to hit them where it hurts.

    payment is completed in paypal. spoke to paypal customer service. sent it to the email posted in their email and then they tell me

    "Which one paypal account you sent to?
    It seems we have not told you our paypal account.
    Thanks for your helping to confirm.
    nds-card.com"

    I ordered my DSTT from there. Very good service, and my package came just as I had ordered it.

    Being that the OP never replied, there's not much to work with on this. But there was really no reason to bring up your issue in that thread, when you've already opened your own thread.
    You may need to cancel your first payment and order again with that paypal. Unfortunately due paypal banning flashcart sites, nds-card.com has had to use this roundabout method to avoid getting banned.

    Flashcart dealers that operate through paypal get their paypal shutdown. NDS card have to be careful with the way they operate through paypal to keep their accounts open and make it easier for us to pay them. NDS Card have been a sponsor here for years and have served thousands of members with little to no issues, instead of making a sensational post immediately contact them and discuss the situation, once everything is clarified I am sure you will be satisfied with their customer service. Please speak to NDS Card and let them know what the issue is before you post here again. Thanks.

    Just 3 days ago a card I ordered from them arrived and it's a legitimate one too. Sketchy as the whole deal looks and the way you have to pay them, it's a good service, don't worry.

    I'd try emailing them with the transaction details from paypal and the order info from the site. It's possible they haven't associated the payment to the order. Also helps to mark on the order that payment was sent if you haven't already.

    NDS-Card service is amazing. I've purchased twice. The second time I choose the air mail shipping. I got my order, to the east coast of the USA, in 3 fucking days FROM CHINA!
