Hi guys, me and my brothe ordered 2 monster 950 surge protectors from this company off the internet as they had a very competitive price:

Computers, Hard Drives, Components Memory | PC Doctor Store

Then my trouble started :(

Firstly i ordered on the 09/09/09 and it said allow 3-5 days delivery, my order WASNT posted out till the 14th, (They told me over the phone the items are sent direct from their suppliers and not them. Now after about 10 days so 24th the items were still not here, i phoned them and they said they cant investigate until 15working days had passed! :mad:

On the 15th day i had a parcel delivered by city link, great i thought! :) Opened the box up, bear in mind i ordered 2 950's, and inside the box there was a single 850!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :mad: ***!

Now, i been trying to call them and use there online chat and getting no answer! all i get it ''Your in a queue due to a busy period'' My @ss! :mad:

So what do i do guys, i really feel iv been scammed, ive never dealt with such a poor company :(

Did you pay by credit card?

You should be able to get your money back from the credit card company if they have messed you around with your order.

Yeh it was done on credit card. So do i just phone the cc company and explain to them?

Wish i could keep the 850 they sent as how much theyv messed me about! :devil:

Do we have a name and shame area for bad retailers? I have been having a massive rouble with an online retailer and they wher sticking to their terms of contract and where sticking to "a refund can take upto 28days" now that the time has passed and they are in breach of their own terms still no refund... what can I do. (paypal payment via a debit card) Paypal not interested as not brought from ebay???
(sorry to hijack)

Yeah just phone up your CC company, they should tell you how to proceed in getting a refund.

It might take a while to get your money back as they have to investigate it first. Don't know how long this usually takes, thankfully i've never had to go down this road before!

Agree with the other responses. Contact your credit card company. They will have no problem in doing a charge back on the retailer. I've done it before and got a refund.

More proof of why this particualr site was the cheapest because there is not the service of the mor ereputable websites, sometimes it's just not worth the small saving.

Hope you get the issue sorted.
