    £599 for a Canon 80. Just what I was after, so bought 2 at that price.




    Is how easy it could happen!



    Thank you for the heads up and I expect to be reading this page for many years to come.

    kentcookers

    kentcookers.co.uk/

    £599 later no cooker very rude person who answers the phone ,

    Cannot believe i fell for it

    Professional looking website but closer inspection not good and should have realised – godaddy US

    Using local number web based forwarding service to make you think they are in the uk

    Reported to action fraud that seems a total waste of 15 minutes , and my bank within 24 hours of the penny dropping but not promising

    Kent Cookers:
    • Bank: HALIFAX
    • Account number: 11140168
    • Sort code: 110325

    Just noticed this, type of thing would make for a great sticky.

    Adding Video Game Box, also have a reputation for taking the money and not delivering, but they run with the same name, have for ages, as far as I know.

    My personal experience;

    Ordered two OS limited edition offerings of a game, pre-orders, months before release, not to be had anywhere else at the time, all in for £300 plus, immediate payment, release date came and went, no games, after much 2-and-fro, they just deleted my account, clawed it back from CC in the end.
