ranting.gif ranting.gif ranting.gif I have been cheated by One World Tinting with fake Raytech Tint. I notice they also sell fake 3M, Vkool, Llumar, Solar Gard etc. Anyone got into the same scam before? Yes please show up here and share your experience ranting.gif ranting.gif ranting.gif

I think I have been scammed, a very bad experience to get my car tinted in Kepong (one of the shop at the row behind public bank kepong). I saw their FB ads and went to the shop for a tint on my car. They have a demo zone in which all the branded and non-branded films will be displayed on the wall. From there the sales person will then explain to you (but not too detailed) about the films they have. Surprisingly the demo zone turns out with 3m, raytech, vkool and Llumar display on the wall. I was not really paying too much attention since I am replacing the old one with a new one, so I took raytech films in the end.

After the installation has been done, a warranty card is then given by the shop. Here was how I find out something's wrong with tint I got. The warranty card is not similar as what my friend showed me like 3 years back. The warranty card given to me is not the one with Raytech logo and related information, instead it is a warranty card under the shop itself. I texted my friend afterwards to get a snap shot on the warranty card that he got last time, and turns out the card design is totally different.

Alright, one last thing I did to get further confirmation on this, I called Raytech HQ. He staff told me that the shop in kepong not authorized reseller of all the branded tinted films, and they are selling counterfeit films with a lot of marketing across all the online channel such as FB, easy deal, mudah, and etc. There are a lot of consumer being cheated as the shop will always tell consumer that they got the films from all the branded company privately with a very low cost. The staff then explain to me that the films we got are usually low quality films from Korea or China, in which the heat rejection is getting worse within a year. However, we as a driver with air-cond turning on in our car, we won't realize unless we use solar meter for test further.

Guys, be aware of that shop and share in this thread so that more of us can take note.

First off I have no affiliation with the shop, I am just a happy customer with them.
I did my car tint with them a year ago, it was 3M sides VLT20 and some other film front VLT70 and back for rm800+.
Just had it removed with them again recently for puspakom checking and they did a good clean job. ( had worst experienced with others).

I went to them because I can get a decent tint for the whole car for under 1K, and I find the workers are diligent and experienced.
I did suspect all along that the film I was applying are fakes but I did not doubt the quality of the film, so I proceeded coz I wanted cheap and good.
I used the '3M' film for a year, it was effective in rejecting heat. It even has little translucent 3M logo printed on the film to say its '3M'.
Yes I did get a similar 'shop' warranty card which should be kept properly coz they do request for it if you return for help.

I would understand how TS feel cheated being sold fake Raytech, but would you really think you get the same deal for rm819? Raytech
Also, there are many different grades of film for each brand, unless you compare them side by side or you are expert.

There may be ways this guy get their film cheap. You can even order in rolls from taobao.
There are fake vkools or skools, unless you go for the mainstream brand, many of the others are just rechopped OEM.
For all you know you are getting a real Raytech, or something that has better VLT per ringgit spent.
Hope you come to terms with your own decision and enjoy the money you saved.

BTW I think you would get more upset when you drive and see distorted vision cause by your cheap front tint blink.gif Go check and see?
Then you will remember never to go cheap again and stick some 3M/Lumar/Vkool!

you can buy good tinting film from taiwan (not China brand). the ceramic tint film 1 layer (clear 70% VLT) and cover again for 2nd layer with tinted darker VLT if you want privacy.

do it yourself. cheaper. last longer and can be remove and retint again.

whole car include windscreen will not cost you more than ~RM400 with lots of left over film to tint your window glass at home too.

There are few possibility here

1. The tint are FAKE, warranty card are FAKE as well - Worst Case Scenario
2. The tint are GENUINE, warranty card are FAKE - Not so bad because you are getting cheaper compare those sell at authorized dealer

However, if the shop closed down and you definitely can't claim the warranty from authorized dealer even you have the warranty card because it is FAKE
The only thing TS can do now is go to https://www.kpdnkk.gov.my/kpdnkk/tribunal-f...claims/?lang=en

i dun go for branded ones.
just find a shop that is well established for >8 years and put rm500 tint that give 7 years warranty good enough.
mine 5 years already still going stronk and the shop is still around if i want to claim warranty.
too cheap <rm200 might as well no need tint because the amount of heat getting through is still a lot.

Hi TS, sorry to hear about the case happened on you. It seem like this issue still keep happening although Raytech has officially made a police report on this company about their scam business in June. The opponent One World Tinting was ignored our charges and still continue their business way by selling fake Raytech products. We hope this news should spread to more people around to alert more customers in the future.

If you need any assistant from Raytech, you can PM us anytime. We're glad to assist you.

QUOTE(Lord Gitsy @ Jun 23 2018, 04:38 PM)
All Lowyat member, pls be aware of this fishy One World Tinting Sdn Bhd. This shop is not authorized dealer or having any business relationship with Raytech Films. They have violent the brand and name of Raytech Films. Selling fake products with low price to their customer.

P/S : We also can find this One World Tinting company name in VKool, Solar Gard, Llumar and 3M dealer list.
