Hi

Did you manage to find anything further on this company...I have been in contact with them by email as Im interested in buying some KEF speakers....but im just a bit cautious as to why they are so cheap.

Any feedback would be great

Thanks

Hi

I was stupid enough to think they might be legit and sent £300 by Western Union Last Firday. The only correspondence I got was confirmation of my payment details on the Saturday morning. They said they would verify payment (I guess that means collect - or steal my money) and would e-mail a delivery reference number iwithin 24 hours. Guess what? I have heard nothing. Some of the order was for my daughter's birday presents so am gutted but should'nt have been so trusting. I am determined to make sure no-one else gets ripped off like me. BEWARE, IT WILL HAPPEN TO YOU.

A lesson there for everybody. As we've repeatedly said, any business that asks for money orders, postal orders or any other (largely) untraceable form of payment should be steered clear of.

Even with solid-looking companies, I always pay by credit card - there's an extra element of protection even a debit card won't give you. (And you've got a few weeks to work out how to justifiy what you've just spent on yet more clobber
)

I'm so sorry you got stung by them! I was already to place an order until I read they wanted western union transfer and then I realised what they were up to.

I've had email communication with "Jason" who has admitted it's a scam and claims they make 5000 euros a week from it!

I've contacted google (as it was through froogle I found it) and I've also emailed western union. ÿI have a friend who is a lawyer and specialises in internet law and I've emailed her the details to see if she can poke western union's *** as I can't believe they are so blatent about it and refuse to let it lie here.

I know this sounds really silly but I'm a mother of two boys and I can't help but feel sorry for "Jason's" mother, my world would end if either of my boys grew up to be such a low life.ÿ

Really sorry to hear that they scammed you out of your daughter's gifts.

Wait until web "15" comes in, imagine "Judge Dread". I hope the users of this forum would not be stupid enough to throw their cash into thin air though...

What's sad is that months later this site is still up, listed on Google shopping and still scamming.
