Forum purchase problem, what would you do?!?!
Bought a pair of Oakley Radarlock glasses of here, had plenty of contact with the seller and bought the glasses which were advertised as with a couple of lenses, case and paperwork to prove they are genuine.
Received the everything in the post a few days later except for the paperwork. Contacted the seller who said he’d forgotten to post it, his kid had drawn on it and he’d send it out later.
This was 3 weeks ago, and still no paperwork. And he’s now blaming royal mail for losing the paperwork.
I’ve paid for glasses, lenses a case and paperwork that proves authenticity. But this is not what i’ve received.
What would you guys do in this situation??Posted 4 years ago
I assume it’s these ones:
I can’t help notice several people, including Oakley Master
baterHouns, said they were fake in the thread?
Anyway. You paid for the glasses plus certificate. No certificate, then full refund and send them back.
I assume you paid via regular Paypal so are covered if needed?Posted 4 years ago
Here’s a 3 month old thread with the seller asking where to buy knockoff Radarlocks:
Oh, and here’s some more for sale, which Kryten bought, from 5 months ago:
Were sold a year ago, as well:
Also, he has been offering them via wanted threads. If they are dodgy, hopefully Rochey didn’t go through with buying them last month:
…maybe the guy has a hook up with a legit supplier. Who knows.Posted 4 years agoSlogoMember

I love STW!!!! Buy this guy a pint…….. RIGHT NOW!Posted 4 years ago
Hold on though. I just watched slogos vid and popped out to compare my frames.
So, thickness, lenses, model numbers, ear socks and nose pieces for his sky blue ones are all the same as they vid describes the genuine a ones. And compared to my original Radars, oliphants are almost the same only the radar lock bit is different.
It could be I have genuine radars in a fake case, or they are a very very good copy?Posted 4 years ago
Potentially a very good copy.
I have real ones and two copies, the copies bought two years apart. The second copy pair are almost indistinguishable from the real ones, and even the lenses or the optical quality is comparable in the second pair. Those boys are fast learners…..Posted 4 years agoeskayMember
Report to trading standards, the authorities are starting to take this kind of thing very seriously:
I am sure they have the power to get his address/details through Paypal, email accounts etc.
Or, perhaps he would refund anyone (assuming they are actually fake) before it takes the official route??Posted 4 years ago
i questioned the lens colour as the gold iridium has a green tint to it, and he told me to search for pictures of richie porte winning the willunga hill stage (which must be definitive proof that the lenses are genuine :roll:)
also the polarized lenses they came with are much thinner than the othersPosted 4 years ago
Seems he sold yet another pair that didn’t suit his facePosted 4 years agorazorrazooMember
So a guy who posts on the forum asking for an alternative source of dodgy glasses intermittently sells ‘genuine’ versions of the same glasses. I think deep down you must know that you’ve sadly been conned, no matter how good the fakes are they’re still fakes. Hopefully this fella gets what he deserves, you’re not going to get a refund and if he just gets scared of here someone is going to get scammed on another forum.Posted 4 years agoposiwevMember
It looks like you’ve been ripped-off unfortunately, the box should have at least 1 sticker on it with a bar code and the frame and lense details the sticker, there should be another sticker detailing the importer – milano or similar.Posted 4 years ago
Another issue is that Oakley don’t come with a cleaning cloth, as you use the microfibre bag.
I’ll send you photos of a genuine box and case if that’s any use for you?
