Time to contact your credit card providers folks to get your money back - I just contacted Egg - £42 ish owed over 9 transactions.

Debit card users will probably lose their money though :(

I was hoping they would drown sooner or later :suicide:

I feel for the people who may have used Switch, Solo, or any other type of debit card :(

After all of the things I`d heard about this company, I stayed well away.

I didn't even find them to be slow. Delivery was always 3-5 days for me.

Presumably you didn't lose any money in this business failure unlike quite a few others.

Personally I'm glad they are gone. Their service was appalling and they gave a bad name to online retail.

I asked them to cancel an order a couple of weeks ago (waited for 3 months loads of excuses nothing delivered) have to check my next CC statement to see if they did refund.

They have owed me £23 since near the end of January despite cancelling the orders over the phone.
I even contacted my bank a week ago to dipute the transactions and was told that they couldn't start to dispute the transactions for 60 days.

no, but even if i had, giving off here isnt going to help any nor is it going to to anyone any good.

Well, I still had three DVDs to arrive, but fortunately paid via Barclaycard.

They'd had several calls today when I phoned them. They are sending me a dispute form so that the transactions can be removed from my bill.

Phew!

same here.......till now - i've paid for something by 'switch' card - is there no way to get the money back? (only £8, but money is tight right now :(

feel sorry for any of you with much more than this. I wonder how long they knew what was happening? - deceitful tw*ts.

I'm absolutely p##sed off. I placed an order in February for £100+ by debit card.
Does anyone know a way of getting all/part of your money back as it doesn't seem right that they are automatically exempt from reimbursing customers.

Yep Im glad to see them go.

Sent me a wrong version of a DVD. Took ages. Contacted Trading Standards to sort it out. Managed to get refund. I never used again despite some good offers.

Following Splash's promotion in the spring of last year during which I ordered many titles and games, some of which never turned up (e.g. waited almost 5 months for super MonkeyBall 2, eventually geting it in a Blockbuster sale) and thus having to cancel, I still do not know for sure to this day if I got all my outstanding money back.:rolleyes:
Considering when it started they called it 'Under 18', before changing the name to 'Splash' I have always found their business practice to be a bit suspect, especially the action of charging at the time of order instead of the time of despatch. :suicide:

Splash burns.:devil:

This is so unfair, I posted my thread about this to the bargain section and it was closed as a duplicate. But the posting times show that, I was first to report this :(

(Maybe this is more appropiate forum though...:rolleyes: )

Had the same sort of problems getting refunds - You shouldn't have to "manage" to get refunds from any company that makes an error. I'm glad these cowboys are gone.

Awww:blush:

Although I'm sure Splash closing could actually be considered a money saver!

I think you are all being a bit harsh on Splash. OK, we all knew the delivery was slow but if you can live with that they were OK. How many of us aquired multiple £2.00 vouchers and used them in conjunction with the £2.00 off sale? OK, they were mugs for allowing it to happen but most of us abused it anyway.

I don't know how many jobs were lost as a result of this, remember also that they would have had their prices watched by the likes of Play & CD WOW. This helped keep down prices all round.

I am owed £7.99 by credit card, I just need to go through the mechanism to reclaim it now.

Spare a thought for those ex-Splash employees who are looking for work...
