One CARER said she ordered a beautiful 6ft tall Christmas tree online but was overwhelmed but what she actually received.
Paulette Alexander shelled out £30 for the tree from the online store, Uakie, after being impressed by a Facebook ad that sold a “fantastic” glowing tree.
A video posted on Uakie’s Facebook page shows a woman advertising a beautiful Christmas tree with remote control lights that takes just 5 minutes to set up.
Impressed by the “tree that grows” Paulette, 49, decided to click the link and purchase a 6ft version before the festival.
However, the old lady from Dorset was unimpressed after claiming that she only delivered a single branch inside a clear plastic bag.
Paulette said she has contacted Uakie but said she has yet to receive a refund.
The store has since removed the Christmas tree from their website.
Posting about the failed online shopping on Facebook earlier this week, Paulette said: “I ordered a 6ft tall Christmas tree and that’s what I got.
“I contacted the company and they said they sent me a tree to get likes.
“I couldn’t stop laughing, they must have plucked a branch and thought I would be happy.”
The frustrated customer shared an image of a lone tree branch lying on her sofa.
Paulette wanted to make this Christmas extra special as her partner is hospitalized for brain surgery and will recover during the festive season.
She is the mother of two children said: ” [advert] says you received this amazing remote control Christmas tree with lights, and if you order it before time runs out, they’ll post yours right away.
“It says it’s from the US but after paying and emailing, you check and it shows up from China.
“The money went straight to my account and gave me a tracking number. Turns out it might not be the right tracking number.
“Hermes claims they delivered the tree but I never received it.
“I ordered from other places on Facebook and everything was fine.”
Uakie has been contacted but declined to comment.
Meanwhile, this person ordered a £280 Samsung TV as a Christmas present for their daughter but found a very large STEAK in the box.
Plus, this woman has saved a whopping £6,000 to turn her bland garden into a fairy-lit paradise using bargains from B&M and Home Bargains.
Also, one DIY enthusiast shared an easy way to turn her old kitchen counter into “marble” and it saved her thousands of dollars.
