Bling FAIL (1) - why you should not buy cheap bling cases...

by Ayano Kimura March 15, 2012

Few days ago I received an email in French. Damn, my French is rusty... but I could understand what he was saying. To summarise: he bought a Milky Way case for iPhone 4S in a shopping mall in France, and within few days, lots of crystals started to fall off, so he wants to get a refund. When I read it, my first reaction was.... "WHAT!?!?!?!?"  I mean our cases go through a vigorous quality control process and this kind of things should never happen. OK, it could happen that one would fall off but so many? I kindly asked him to send us more info, and more importantly, to send us a photo of the damaged case.... ........ (waiting eagerly...... (;´ρ`)) Finally he sent me the photo. Tobias sees it first - he just started to laugh!!!! I was like, "What is it???" He said, "just see it yourself!".

The poor guy bought a fake case!!!  This is definitely:

AN EPIC FAIL! ƪ(•̃͡ε•̃͡)∫ʃ


First of all, this case has no logo. All of our Bling My Thing cases have embossed logo on the surface of the case (in some cases, printed). Next, there is no setting for crystals to be seen on the case. This means, crystals are just glued onto a standard case with a flat surface. Sure, crystals would fall off before you know it. Our cases have settings (holes) for every crystal we glue. So they are well-protected, AND our glue is optimised to hold them tightly to the case. Our crystals would never come off in normal everyday use. I feel very sorry for him - he liked Milky Way, he said in his email. The shop must have told him that it was the original Bling My Thing case, otherwise he would not have contacted us.... Moral of the story: DO NOT BUY FAKE BLING MY THING CASE OR YOU WILL REGRET IT! Make sure that the case has our logo on it, AND sold in our original packaging. If it is too cheap - it is probably fake. ps. The guy bought it in a shopping mall called Auchan Noyelles Godault. So if you ever travel to France, be careful! Buy our original case! FNAC has our cases in stock :)
