    Just spent 2 hours on the phone, got to position no 2 in queue and it just sat there.

    Phoned in from another phone to see what the queue was doing and it tells me the offices are now closed!

    They owe me £40!

    I've phoned my credit card company to make a claim for the money I'm owed and they are going to dispute it. Hopefully the credit card people will refund me.

    yeah and whats the chances any of them will be shipped? It was hard enough to get them shipped when they were open for business :rotfl:

    With the amount of complaints the relevent authorities would have received in previous weeks and months about them, I wouldnt be surprised if this played a part in them deciding to close too.

    [Swear word deleted by Mod] owe me a fifty on orders.

    jersey Trading Standards have already replied to me

    "Unfortunately when a company ceases to trade no one gets any notice and it is the Directors whom make that decision. You are quiet right - consumers are on the bottom of the list when it comes to creditors.

    My advice to you is to contact your credit card provider - tell them Splash have ceased trading and ask them for a refund of monies paid. Not good news I know."

    I checked their site at 11.50 am this morning and it was still open, i am still waiting to receive "once upon a time in the west" from them.

    It gives other retailers a bad name

    I was looking at the site this afternoon and tried calling them about the money they owe me on an order I made on the 21st January. I always seem to be at number 25 when i call and never get further than 24. Probably all the irate people whose money they have taken and then ignored.

    Luckily it's only a fiver for me, but this company has been heading down this route for a long time, they are appalling and deserve to have gone bust.

    Doesn't help the poor people who have lost money though (especially ones like me who use a debit card as opposed to a credit card........ that'll teach me!)
