    Hi,

    Oddly, i was looking to buy from them at exactly the same time yesterday. Ive been hunting for an LG 55 OLED. The site would only accept payment via bank transfer and when questioned via their customer service, they said that their paypal service had been cancelled and again tried to direct me to the bank transfer service for payment. I declined to complete the transaction. Id advise NOBODY to pay for goods via bank transfer.
    Also a quick google of the website returned no results.
    Seems very odd. I'd like to be proved wrong, but my gut says SCAM.
    I wouldn't use them for the time being. Don't get parted from your hard earned money.

    Yes I also had a look but as you can only pay by Bank Transfer there is absolutely no protection so you are just passing across a large some of money to a website. If it looks too good to be true then 99% of the time it is...

    Sorry to hear that.

    I would be worried if I were you - especially if you have paid by bank transfer as that is the riskiest form of payment there is. :(

    How much have you paid and for what modl?

    Far from legit if they do not take Bank cards. Customers have no protection whatsoever. How would such a small warehouse have such a huge range of stock? Why would PayPal withdraw services? Hope I'm wrong about this.

    Hi, phoned my bank as same bank as mine “Lloyd’s” they froze the acc immediately, but funds had already been removed , so advised they will investigate. Said no one else can pay in to that acc . Advised me to contact police. I reported online under fraud, was given ref no. They had a cheek to send me a text while on to bank to say they were refunding me !?!?!?!?, bank said that was not true...

    Their address would appear to be one of these places on the right.

    I can report I've had the same problem, I ordered a 65" OLED TV and took a day off work yesterday (Friday 2nd of November) when it was scheduled for delivery between 4-6pm. They aren't answering phones at the moment but they are responding to emails.... Its been rescheduled for Monday 5th 4pm-6pm...

    They come up as a paid Google ad (look at the bottom of this page) when you search for example for...
    "js9000 4k 3d"

    Nope - Took a second day off work today for the rescheduled delivery between 4-6pm nothing again. I did email them at lunchtime and they did apologize today via email and said their website isn't showing order status properly and that the delivery was still "on track" for later today. Not happy. Still no excuse for not phoning if they had a genuine delivery problem. I rang a few nearby businesses on the same industrial estate today and apparently one chap I spoke to at Tile Home helped someone find their unit a few days ago so it seems they are indeed on Bounds Green Industrial Estate, but the numbering of the units is very confusing so hard to locate on Streetview. I know they've just read my email demanding a refund (I use Mailtrack) and I've threatened them with trading standards and the Police if they don't refund my £1099.99 within 3 days back into my account. I've contacted my bank obviously too, and I'll be contacting Lloyds too tomorrow (which is their bank). Anyone else had any luck with their orders or are we all in the same boat?

    I wonder if the address on the website actually has anything to do with whoever is running the scam. They may just have picked an address of another company or made up an address.

    I also wonder if you have each paid into the same bank account. May be worth you PMing each other to detail the account numbers that you have paid into.

    If they have caught out a few members of AV Forums that have noticed this particular thread then how many other members of the general public will they have conned too?

    Lloyds called me this morning - there is nothing they can do. money has been taken out from their account straight away. I emailed 4K again and had the cheek to tell me that i messed up by placing two orders (unbelievable) and that there system was being updated and cancelled both my orders. Been told that will be receiving the TV today (AGAIN!!!)....
