Cryptorefills, Scam, or Sucky?
Note: If you arent familiar with Cryptorefills, I suggest reading this article where I found out about Cryptorefills.
If you don't want to read that article, I'll give you a quick little run down. Cryptorefills is like the little brother wannabe of bitrefill.com. Bitrefill makes a living honestly and Cryptorefills wants to make money like Bitrefill but he doesn't want to work for it. So he scams people.
But on the real note, you select a gift card that you want to purchase, you select the amount of money you want on it. Then you select what crypto you want to pay in, then send them the money and you will get an email within the hour with your codes.
How Is It A Scam?
Well, in my entire experience with Cryptorefills, I hadn't encountered a problem such as this until my most recent purchase from them, $125 in iTunes gift cards. When I attempted to redeem the gift card, I was informed that "This code has already been redeemed". I email Cryptorefills customer support explaining my situation and asking for either a refund or a new code. It took about 5 days for them to get back to me and from then, it was a back and forth email chain that lasted a couple of weeks due to poor response time.
In this lengthy chain of emails, as I grew increasingly impatient because $125 is $125, I continued to have to apply pressure to get my money back or a new code. This honestly shouldn't have been necessary.
I had a friend online who told me that this once happened to him with Bitrefill and they responded back to them immediately and gave him a new code for the same amount. Showing the vast difference between Bitrefill and Cryptorefills.
After about two whole weeks of my time wasted, it seems that the issue was handed off to someone who was at least a bit more sensible, who, eventually, sent $140 USD worth of ETH to my wallet, to compensate for my time. This was vastly appreciated as it showed this person's consideration and care for the reputation of the website.
That said, all of this should have been unnecessary and should have been resolved within a day or two with a new code.
I don't believe that Crpytorefills is a scam as much as I believe that it is "sucky". I personally will be steering clear of Cryptorefills and I suggest you do the same. I recently made the rounds through my online inner circle of crypto nerds and they all informed me that they prefer Bitrefill as they are reliable and hold a strong reputation.

Thanks for sticking with me and I'll see you on the other side!
