RangeXTD WiFi Booster – Able Look Online Limited Scam

Wi-Fi boosters, also known as wireless extenders, are dime-a-dozen on the open market. The most notable brand-names include NetGear, TP-Link, and Linksys. Another brand that is drawing attention as of late is RangeXTD.

About Us

The About Us page does not provide any significant details about the website. The Contact Us page does provide the address 68308 G/F Kowloon East Building, 12 Lei Yue Mun Road, Kwung Tong, Hong Kong. The address is definitely not original because it is linked to a broad range of websites, including getplaybeatz.com, advancedliving.com, blauxportableac.com, mobileklean.com, and feverpatrl.com.

Nayzayerz recently reviewed the Blaux Portable AC, which turned out to be a scam. Anything connected to Blaux just does not seem legit. The PayPal username for Blaux is Unipro, which is not a real company but a scam artist preying on American consumers.

Strong Current Enterprises claims to be the owner and operator of the RangeXTD website. A business search via the Company Search Mobile Service (CSMS), an online business search service of the Hong Kong government, did verify the legitimacy of the company.

Strong Current Enterprises is an active private company limited by shares registered in Hong Kong on August 1, 2008. The company’s official website showed a limited selection of products, none of which was the RangeXTD Wi-Fi Extender. It also shows a different address than the one provided on the RangeXTD Contact Us page. This address shows the company located in Wanchai, Hong Kong not Kwung Tong. If the company has multiple locations in Hong Kong, this could explain the different addresses.

Afterword – RangeXTD Scam

The RangeXTD was featured in the SFWeekly, a tabloid newspaper-alternative, on July 24, 2020. But, so was the Buzz B Gone on August 3, 2020. Nayzayerz recently did an article about the not-so authentic bug zapper, which is available via AliExpress, Alibaba, eBay, and Amazon. Scam artists do not know when to quit, they utilize all kinds of resources in an attempt to legitimize their products.

American consumers beware when utilizing SFWeekly as a legitimate news source. It is filled to the brim with false content. If the RangeXTD is a legit Strong Current Enterprises’ product, you think the company would have it displayed on its website.

We went through the process of purchasing the RangeXTD via PayPal and discovered the account is not linked to Strong Current Enterprises but Able Look Online Limited. Do not purchase from any website without conducting thorough research. It is very easy to verify companies all over the world with a little research.

Another point, if Strong Current Enterprises created this website, why would it hide its domain registrant information? The company wouldn’t because it would have no reason to.

Is RangeXTD a scam? Probably!

  1. I also placed an order with this company. I did receive the product but they do not work. When you call the customer service line it tells you they are experiencing high volume and you wait for over 20 min. After that it disconnects you. I have tried numerous times to contact this company to return, but you can never get a person on the line. There is no other way to contact them as I have researched them numerous times. I filed a dispute with Pay pal to hopefully get my money back.

    1. It appears PayPal is not refunding for these products. Hopefully, this is the case for you. But, your refund request will probably be denied. This is not a legit company, it is a group of international scam artists. So, there is no physical address attached to the website, which means there is no way to return the items for a full refund. Good luck.

  2. I accidentally ordered 2 sets of range Ctr wi fi boosters and tried to cancel one of the sets through pay pal. Since then I did receive 1 set of three and not the other which is what I wanted. My problem is I was charged for both sets $134. And change I want a refund for the set I did not want.
    Thank you in advance for your cooperation

    1. Start with a PayPal complaint and if that doesn’t work, file a BBB complaint against PayPal. If you paid with a credit card, you shouldn’t face any issues getting a full refund. We are not talking about a real company here. This is a group of scam artists taking advantage of vulnerable and unaware consumers. Let us know how it goes. Don’t wait too long to request a full refund via PayPal or your credit card company.

        1. An organization that acts as a middleman between consumers and companies. BBB helps resolve issues such as the one you are having with Able Look Online Limited. It is mainly for American consumers but it may be able to help other consumers as well. bbb.org is the website you need to access to file the claim.

  3. I ordered this product, Are you saying they are looking at my online usage? I received this product and was about to use it but now I am going to research this better. If you have more proof please inform me. Also Is S.F. Weekely a news source?

    1. No, we are not saying they are monitoring or tracking your online activity. We are just saying the product is an Alibaba look-a-like. If it actually works, it is probably safe to say it is secure. The scam artists probably do not have the intellect or means to monitor each buyer’s online activity.

  4. Bestellt ,RANGE XTD ‘ROUTER und bezahlt,doch bis jetzt nicht angekommen!!
    Ich fordere eine baldige Lieferung oder eine Rückerstattung des Geldes!!

  5. ICH FORDERE EINE BALDIGE LIEFERUNG ODER EINE RÜCKERSTATTUNG DES
    EINGEZAHLTEN BETRAGES!!(RANGE XTD ROUTER)

    1. If you ordered with your credit card or PayPal, you may as well be prepared to file a claim against Able Look Online. It is likely it will never arrive. Also, file a BBB complaint to let other consumers know about this scam artist. Do not delay too long, there is a refund request deadline.

  6. La prise wifi booster que j’ai reçu ne fonctionne pas avec notre configuration actuelle.
    Je souhaiterais vous la retourner et en obtenir le remboursement.
    Pourriez-vous me dire comment faire sachant que je ne parle pas anglais et qu’il serait souhaitable d’en tenir compte.
    Cordialement.

    1. You will need to request a return via PayPal or your credit card company. You should be able to return the items to Able Look Online and get a full refund. Good luck because these scam artists are not known for being honest vendors.
