Silminyard - another scam site, part of "Salesinstore"

Got that, Google? That's SILMINYARD. SILMINYARD. Hopefully that should lose them a few more vulnerable people. Definitely the same site as the one mentioned in this thread http://www.avforums.com/forums/plasma-televisions/1004998-salesinstore-com-another-scam-site-beware.html#post9662128.. just look at the fonts, the header, and the biggest tell-tale, the menu on the side which has "Canon" with a lower-case letter "c". Identical site, higher prices.

If just ONE person stumbles on this post, through this site directly, or Google, then I'll be very glad to have deprived these con-artists of the money. Definitely reporting these to the police.. they have to be closed down! no contact details, no address, no company number, and most telling, no SSL on the "create an account" form.

SILMINYARD. SALESINSTORE. Same company, same scam. AVOID LIKE THE BLOODY PLAGUE!

Please see my post on the other thread about this company. The domain names are both registered to the same people in China and so outside the jurisdiction of the UK authorities such as police and trading standards. To anyone who's ordered your only hope is to go for your credit card company if you paid direct by your card - if you paid via PayPal then your Consumer Credit Act rights don't apply and you have to throw yourself at the mercy of PayPal themselves.

Actually that may be a way to get the site stopped - don't complain to the authorities, go to PayPal and ask them to withdraw their payment facilities.
