The Two Faces of Vaporin – A Scam Alert


Hitler liked dogs, or so it is said. Child Molesters are sometimes priests. Do the nice things some people do erase, or justify the evil things they do. I suggest they do not. A Child Molester is evil, no matter what he/she does for a living. Hitler was Hitler, a mass murderer and lunatic, and the fact that he may have treated his dogs nicely doesn’t move me in the slightest.

What does these extreme examples have to do with Vaporin? Well, like the two above, Vaporin leads a corrupt existence too. Let me explain…

Element Vape

First, there is Vaporin, the one-stop eCigarette Vendor. Point your browser to and you’ll see a vendor offering a variety of branded devices and eliquids that are priced about the same as most other vendors. Well, except their eliquids, which is an incredibly high $9.99 for 12ML. But other than that, they are, like it or not, selling electronic cigarettes in the same fashion as most others do.

However, Vaporin is also in the business of ripping people off.

Point your browser here: and you’ll see that same bullshit products and prices that Regal, Prada, Emerald Lux, Smoke Star, and others are selling. 14-Day free trials that aren’t free at all, auto-ship programs at an outrageous cost, selling your information to 3rd party companies, and other atrocities (yes, atrocities) that take advantage of people that do not know what electronic cigarettes “should” cost, they have no idea that the “quality” of devices are vast, and like first time computer users, are completely lost when it comes to deciding which is right.

Electronic Cigarette Scams – We’ve done the Scam Alert posts for more than 2 years and while we have indeed helped many people avoid such fraudulent acts, a lot of the companies are still in business and still finding success in ripping people off. This has to stop, if not by regulation (where they can actually do some good), then by words of mouth. That being the case, I would like to call upon all of you to help spread the word that as long as Vaporin remains in the slimy business of selling 1 battery cig-a-like kits for $125 and eliquid auto-ship programs for $90 a month they should be shunned by every vaper on the planet.

You can’t have it both ways, especially in this industry. You’re either a good guy or a bad guy… you can’t be both. Vaporin puts up a front at and then stalks on the innocent by offering these scummy products at exorbitant prices. It’s time to put these out of business, or get them to see the light.

  1. I wasn’t happy with the product but figured id eat the $5 I paid for shipping and handling, but when I checked my bank account this morning and saw the $120 charge I was extremely upset. I have a seasonal job and have one week before getting laid off and already my hours are cut, that was half of my paycheck and I have a 1yr to support. I called my bank and then this scam company. I was given the RMA # and was told to get a tracking number when sending it back and once the tracking # says it’s been delivered I would have to contact them again to get them to issue me a refund. What a hassle and financial hardship for me. I never authorized this and their website and ad is deceiving.

  2. The same things happened to me. I received an email from them stating an offer for starter kit for a total amount of $6.94 that included shipping insurance. I was checking my bank account and found they charged me $119.99. When I called them they gave me some story about how I entered into a stop smoking program. I don’t even smoke. When I tried to explain that I was upset and needed to speak with the manager, the man said he was the manager and I didn’t have any recourse. It was like speaking with someone from another phone call. I told them I would not stand for this and called my bank and had the charge killed. These people tried to scam me. I won’t ever buy from them again. You shouldn’t either.

  3. This is crazy that all of these people have been scammed by this particular company. My sister just got off the phone with this company’s ‘manager’. What a joke! They avoid the question about not telling your customer’s about this free trail and then continue to charge the credit card. The manager of this company is not only rude but was so completely unprofessional. I am surprised that the Better Business Bureau is not involved in this scam!! We will be killing these charges at the bank. But other consumers need to be aware that this company is a joke and a complete scam! Be Aware!

  4. vaporin refuses to issue me a refund for returned product that I never wanted in the first place. I had the tracking number and proof of delivery. I’ve called three times and after several minutes of waiting, then trying to reason with rep, then hung up on. Three times! I disputed the charge with my credit card co, they researched and said VAPORIN claimed I had not followed their return policy (I had a RMA). I give up. Out about $250. VAPORIN sucks.

    1. So funny something similar happened to me also. I was too stupid to realize that when i disputed the charges with my bank it severed any future communications between vaporin and my bank. So once the bank ruled against me, I was out of $120 plus three different 90 dollar charges. I should’ve never returned the products either…smdh.

      1. I’m surprised the bank didn’t side with you in this dispute. Many people I’ve spoken with say their banks credited back the money. I’m really sorry to hear about it. Companies like this can’t go out of business fast enough if you ask me

        1. Oh I did! I was immediately credited but all the charges when I disputed but when the dispute was finalized my bank ruled against me stating charges aren’t fraudulent. Yeah, I mean it really is shame. I mean the Juice is some of the best I have ever tasted. It burned slow, lasted long and packed a powerful hit. I have tried others since and have not been able top find anything comparable. I just loved to smoke.

  5. was to be a free sample, we pay shipping. 2 weeks later they took 119.56, and belive they are heading to take more money. vaporin is out to get rich and were gonna pay.

    1. So sorry to hear about this Hank. The best thing you can do is to tell your credit card company that you were scammed and did not realize that “free” actually mean “$120”. They will listen. Then, warn everyone you know. Share this article on your own social media outlets, help other avoid this kind of crap in the future. We must work together because I have a feeling the government isn’t going to do anything to stop these types of scams. 🙁 – Good luck! – Julia

      1. doing 2 things to keep to keep these out of my account. i like ejuice, and filling it up, i didnt even need these guys. after 55yrs. im clean of smokes.

  6. All I can say is they got me too. I at least stoped them before they charged me more than the original $4.95 and $119.99. Still feel like they ripped me off because of all the better, less expensive, options out there. Where can one go to checkout a large selection of vaping materials and accessories?

    1. Damn dude they got u. Check out Mt. Baker vapor. They are fantastic!!! Great products and juice cheap!!!! Fast shipping. This is by far the best company I have ever dealt with
