1.0 out of 5 stars NOT AT ALL as pictured! - Grey Floral Scarf, January 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Promithi Lady Womens Colorful Floral Long Scarf Wraps Shawl Stole Soft Scarves (Apparel)
The colors of the scarf are COMPLETELY OFF! The backdrop color is not clean, light grey but a sort of dirty gray-brownish-whatever else. The floral print is off as well: on the dark grey-ish-brown-ish there are dark orange, blue and green and some yellow. All dark, dirty kind of looking. I bought the Grey Scarf because the light pink and blue that looked very becoming on the light grey background. The scarf I got has NO pink and the rest of the colors, pint and base, are all very dark and horrible looking. All in all: NOT AT ALL AS PICTURED! Maybe with a bit of luck you can get the pictured scarf, I don't know... I just don't understand why don't they show pictures of the real product OR send the pictured product... ?!?!... Not o mention that, if you want to order several scarf, you have to pay shipping PER ITEM, even if you order the same product, from the same seller, in a single transaction! AND they never (PROMITHI) never-ever get back to you if you express any concerns/ questions/ whatever in writing (which, as it happens, is the only way of communicating with them). Very unhappy following the very unsatisfying experience with this seller!

UPDATE: I just found some other similar scarves, and I thought I'd put a link FYI: this is how the scarves actually look like, only that for the grey and orange and such other light colors the tone is still more deep/ darker than pictured. niceeshopTM Women Paris Yarn Long Muffler Shawl Scarf Wraps With Flower Pattern

As you can see - NOT as featured by PROMITHI!!!! Also, note that these scarves come with "free shipping" (not $2.99/ per ordered item, as with PROMITHI!!!) and they cost $1.99 (not $3.99, the price PROMITHI is selling them for!). So they are advertising and charge for a product they don't actually sell and that others sell way cheaper ($1.99 for such a terrible scarf is more like it, when compared with $6.99 what I initially paid for the grey and pink advertized scarf!!!).

I think Amazon should hold these overseas seller more accountable for what and how they sell their stuff on Amazon!!! I always had great experiences with Amazon and I'm an old customer but with all these Chinese, Hong-Kong and other sellers they allowed on their site I had a couple of very, very bad experiences. Always the same story: product not as advertized, especially not as pictured.

Thanks for the warning. I'll look much more closely when making a decision about ordering items from amazon.

I had the same experience and the scarf I received is in fact the one on the webiste you listed in your review...I did not receive the scarf promised by Promithi, for some inexplicable reason I received this smaller and not as appealing scarf.
