The PlayPods price is $39 plus an additional $8.95 for shipping. Alibaba sells several versions of the wireless earbud. The i7s Mini TWS Earbud is very similar to the Dango Buds and Play Pods earbuds. The most noticeable difference is the price. The i7s is priced at $2.69 plus shipping.
The website was registered on November 9, 2020. The getplaypods.com domain was registered on October 8, 2020.
The website does not have About Us or Contact Us pages. Play Pods claims it is located in the United States without offering a physical address. It utilizes the phone number (858) 208-0082. A Google search links the phone number to the Technik 3 SmartWatch, not Dango Buds or Play Pods.
The 858 area serves San Diego County, California.
Neither of the websites is accredited or registered with BBB.
Afterword – Dango Buds Scam
PlayPods does have a Facebook page. Several customers have reached out to the website via Facebook in regards to non-deliveries and refund requests. Play Pods is refusing to respond to the complaints.
Sandra F claimed her order was never shipped. The only response she received from the website was a COVID-19 excuse.
Amelie V claimed she purchased a non-functioning Technik 3 Watch.
With no address, it is impossible to conduct a business search for either of the websites. The only evidence available is a few customer complaints regarding potential scams.
It is not recommended to purchase from unofficial websites. Even if your order is processed, you will probably end up overpaying for Alibaba junk.
It is possible, the website switched from PlayPods to Dango Buds in an attempt to evade negative feedback and customer complaints.
