This is so dodgy, I cannot BELIEVE Amazon use these crooks as a seller!! And I cannot BELIEVE I have been royally skanked, haha. Still – thank Barclaycard for Internet Insurance, right? We’ll see…. Ordered a Panasonic camcorder for over 700 quid. “Moneybookers.com” – some kind of internet finance organisation (yeah, right) – on behalf of Simply Electronics immediately charged my credit card. A week later, Simply sent an email requesting photocopies of my credit card, passport and driving license. Dodgy? Identity theft? Do I look that stupid? Heh, what do you reckon? I subsequently cancelled my order. I tried phoning – but obviously there was never any answer. How could there be? They’re in Barbados. Or Nigeria. I emailed Simply Muppettronics, continually, and get the same reply- “your refund has been passed on to our processing department”. I contacted the amazingly contactable Moneybookers.com who say “they will investigate” – and they obviously do not, because no investigation occurs. So. After four weeks of waiting for that elusive refund, I cave in and report it to a nice lady in Bangladesh who works for Barclaycard. I have to explain it four times, but hey, that’s fine because I just want my money back. Simply Electronics? Simple Electronics? Simply Muckspreading? Simple Criminals? They can’t be that simple, they still have my damn cash!!! Damn that organised crime. Update to follow.
AMAZON you should be ASHAMED of yassells.
