    What are people's experience with Aliexpress??

    I'm assuming the Escrow service is probably affiliated with Aliexpress in one way or another. The sellers were deleted from Aliexpress after they were confirmed of suspicious activities. My recourse would be to contact VISA if I did not receive the refund after the specified time by Aliexpress.
