|Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by afangsoup: 12:37am On Aug 04, 2021|
I don't usually do this but I've been pushed to do so.
Some days ago, I needed to add some shoes to my collection and that of my wife's. I did a little inquiring from some Nairalanders, and they mentioned Anuoreangel being decent and honest enough to get a good deal. I decided to read thru her profile and discovered of a truth she has been a long time member.
I chatted and exchanged calls with her regarding some sneakers of choice and clearly stated that I needed Genuine Original Nike Sneakers for my wife and I.
She asserted that her products are genuine. I asked for her payment option if she does payment on delivery outside her base (Lagos) because I reside in Abuja. She said I should pay for the item and waybill. I felt its no problem and also informed her to send it to my address. She agreed and I ran a transaction to a First bank account bearing Okosun Christiana which I believed belongs to her. I did a sum of ₦12,500.00 (₦10,500 for shoes ₦2,000 for courier) and she said I should expect it in Abuja on 28th July latest.
I relaxed and even made inquiries about more footwares for my wife and I so that I may purchase when this first purchase gets delivered.
Unfortunately, I did not receive any calls or messages from her courier service providers till Friday 30th July at 10:58pm that my item is at Peace Mass Transit.
Next day, at 7:30am, I called the store manager of the courier and he said its not in Kubwa but in Utako which is approximately 28km away from my house. I ordered an ehailing cab and was billed ₦2,000.
I got there and was made to pay ₦500 for service charge. I paid and was given the parcel which I opened to discover it was packed in a red box which was a genuine Nike shoebox.
Opening the box, I was met with the most nastiest quality of shoes ever imagine. They were fake clone Chinese shoes cheaply made.
I felt disappointed and rang her (anuoreangel) to express my utter displeasure in such delivery.
I was shocked when she retorted rather rudely back that other people have bought same from her and they didn't complain, why am I complaining?
I told her see, I'm disappointed in your product quality, the fact that I really asked you if it was a genuine quality yet, you lied to me and I felt cheated, I am returning this item immediately back to you.
Next thing I heard from her was she's not poor, money isn't her problem. I made it clear that I am not paying for any return courier. When she gets to pick it she pays for it but she should refund my money for shoes only ₦10,500.
Yesterday, being 3rd August, she informed me that the item had been collected by her and she is only interested in refunding ₦8,500 because she has to pay for the refund and she doesn't accept any refund (a policy I wasn't informed of by the way till I wanted to return her item).
I've been patient enough and showed enough restraints while this lady has been acting all up.
Yes, that money is a small amount,
Yes, I could easily let her have that money, but No I won't because I worked for it legitimately, and also because of her rude manners, I need that money. It can go along way to buying data or call credit for me to use.
I wish the public understand that this moniker (anuoreangel) is one very cunning and deceptive and insincere person and anyone dealing with such person stands a chance of being shortchanged.
If I haven't gotten my full refund, I may be left without option than to take a more drastic legal approach. Anyone who's sympathetic to her actions may decide to tell me it's a small amount or it's normal, but hey, it's not normal, and no, I do not agree it's a small amount based on the fact that such has become a norm in Nigeria and hence the level of corruption and non accountability in governance and service delivery.

Transaction as proof that I paid for.
Please, let her come out and defend herself and prove I am wrong.

That monicker has a questionable character, I'm surprised you said some Nairalanders told you she's decent because there was so much complaint about her in the clearance section, she's never available to pick her calls after posting numerous ads. By the way how could you not know the shoes were clones? The images she uses for adverts screams it.

Hmmmm. This is really disappointing to say the least.
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by pafestula(m): 4:50am On Aug 04, 2021|
Come out and do the needful before we help you out, and you know what that means to your business.
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by SavageResponse(m): 5:37am On Aug 04, 2021|
If you said you paid 10,500 for two pairs of shoes then I'm guessing each pair was priced at N5,250
I'm not trying to support the seller or anything but I can tell you confidently that you will never get an original Nike for N5,250, even N10,500 is not enough to pay for an original copy!
The price should have told you that it's not an original.
Most of the trainers you see sellers advertising in Nigeria are knock-offs because most Nigerians can't afford the original
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by veekid(m): 6:03am On Aug 04, 2021|
Anuoreangel or whatever she's called was known for her nonchallant attutui, she doesn't return calls nor answer them on time. You were lucky she picked your calls when you wanted to express your dissatisfaction about the shoes.
Back to you buyer, you self funny, you wan buy original Nike shoes for 10,500? Lol are you kidney me?
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by TheLoanGuy: 6:34am On Aug 04, 2021|
afangsoup:Guy where you go take see Original Nike for N10,500 even with Nigeria's exchange rate? Original starts from 30k minimum and it's most likely a knock off that'll still be sold to you. Or you thought you don chop awoof?
On Twitter sef, vendors will sell the same shoe she sold at 10k5 to you for 20k minimum and they get it from the same source here in Lagos.
Most of us that have patronised know it is genuine. I think where she made the mistake was affirming that it was genuine.
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by Jokesnice(m): 7:13am On Aug 04, 2021|
He didn't say he paid 10,500 for two shoes, it was for a pair.
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by SavageResponse(m): 8:12am On Aug 04, 2021|
Even if it's a for a single pair an authentic Nike costs far more than N10,500!
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by afangsoup: 8:15am On Aug 04, 2021|
I am not a shoe seller and won't know the average prices of these items here. What I usually do previously was to import or ask a family member to buy and send it over to me. So I am in no way to know.
I informed her I wanted genuine pair of shoes, several times I asked, she asserted it was.
Please, do Not shift the goal post from and derail this by subtly blaming me. The seller ought to be transparent and honest enough to tell the buyer the truth about his product. But unfortunately, this is Nigeria, seller may easily think that they are far away and can get away with being dishonest. This is why we are in this situation as a Nation.
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by afangsoup: 8:16am On Aug 04, 2021|
Eventually I got a genuine for ₦30,000 by another seller. But it doesn't change the fact that she is a very dishonest and rude fellow who should be avoided.
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by Ishilove: 8:21am On Aug 04, 2021|
SavageResponse:The issue here is integrity. She should have been forthright from the outset by letting client know that she is selling imitation. What she did is she sold him sneakers under false pretense
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by Ishilove: 8:23am On Aug 04, 2021|
afangsoup:Exactly. She is very dishonest. You asked for original and she sold fake, and is even making mouth on top. Very dishonest person
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by SavageResponse(m): 8:30am On Aug 04, 2021|
The fact is that most of those who sell knock-offs in Nigeria have no idea that they're even selling fake so in her mind she probably thinks she's selling an original cos she doesn't know any better.
For instance I have seen someone advertising a Patek Phillipe wristwatch for N15,000 and the person was arguing with me and defending it as an original. Anyone who is exposed knows that even N1million will not buy an original second hand Patek Phillipe wristwatch!
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by Ishilove: 8:37am On Aug 04, 2021|
SavageResponse:Trust me, she knows what she is selling.
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by TheLoanGuy: 8:41am On Aug 04, 2021|
afangsoup:I am not derailing, I am telling you the basics.
At least now you've gotten a genuine Nike for 30k.
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by descarado: 8:54am On Aug 04, 2021|
The amount you were asked to pay is the green light. The cheapest Nike with the present Nigerian foreign exchange rate is more than 25k and Nike don't come cheap.
If anybody sell original Nike to you 12 or 10k, that is a stolen property.
You have Internet. Go to Nike and check their sneakers, check exchange rate, add and minus then you will know what you going into.
I can never buy something without checking the market prices first.
What is wrong with you people?
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by descarado: 9:03am On Aug 04, 2021|
TheLoanGuy:Didn't read this before I replied that guy.
That is mass produced Nike from China, Bangladesh etc. The diff is that it is cheaper there and quality is also cheaper but its Nike.
I wanted to buy a cooking pot from a popular brand and I got so many options. As naija babe, I went for the cheapest one. You will never know the diff. What saved me was the reviews. I bought from the parent company and its 200% costlier.
You wanna buy made in Europe, UK, US etc be ready to spend more. But see Asia except South korea, you are strictly on your own. They will last but......yet its the same company. And this is what Nigerian vendors buy and sell with the West price tag and we fall for this. Our celebrities are the worst affected.
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by Jokesnice(m): 12:14pm On Aug 04, 2021|
Of course I know that, what are u even saying?
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by Ishilove: 2:43pm On Aug 04, 2021|
descarado:It's looks like Aba made Nike
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by kingreign(m): 3:33pm On Aug 04, 2021|
Ishilove:It indeed looks like. It's a very terrible thing. The accused person is really dishonest and should pay up the money in full.
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by chukwugoziegi: 2:38pm On Dec 06, 2021|
That lady na werey. I've bought good shoes from her before but she stressed the hell out of my life before I got them.
She has the communication skills of an eediot. Very horrible seller. But my people loved the shoes
|Re: Dishonest Dealings From Anuoreangel by FarEl18: 5:09am On Apr 16|
Good day boss. Please who was the other seller you bought from. Can you refer them?
