It is registered in Sutton Coldfield but the shop street address in in Gloucestershire.
Could be a small shop starting to sell online, best call them first I think.

Not to be trusted at all.

They say they use amius-transport.co.uk as couriers, most stuff on the page is copied from other courier sites.
aurumparcel.co.uk is pretty much the same, also a few others that don't seem to be active but did have similar content.

The courier sites code seem to be stolen from this Russian web site http://selmaks.by, they have the same phone numbers in the pages code.

The main 'shop' page is made using a joomla template, http://demo.joomla-monster.com/120-jm-electronic-equipment-store

As the old saying goes, if it seems to good to be true it probably is.

I tried to call them several times today as they have a nex5n advertised £180 cheaper than anywhere else, and I got no reply. I did a bit of a search and found that the 'Director' is the director of 5 different companies, 4 registered to the address on the website and one in Gloucester. I decided to get the one I was looking at from Jacobs Digital, at least I could speak to somebody and confirm stock, then i collected it from the shop so no worries about postage.

I would steer clear until somebody has actually spoken to somebody from the shop or visited them to see if they are legit, their prices look too good to be true.

This is strange one.

His other companies are light, been trading locally for many years, I've even done work for them myself.

This new techshop is a bit more fishy. I didn't get a chance to have a look in nailsworth today, but I have to go to Stroud to tomorrow which is the next small town along, so hopefully I can nip in and see.

I ordered something of them on Monday.
They promptly sent me a tracking reference. I since tried to call them 30 times - impossible.
Also, the transport company literally doesn't exist. No number, no answer to emails.
I called the surrounding business and there is no shop there at the address.
Should have been delivered today, but nothing.

Hopefully you can get your money back :)
