THEY DON'T RESPOND TO MY EMAILS AND TOTALLY IGNORE ME WHEN I TRY TO TALK TO THEM ON A LIVE CHAT. AS SOON AS I GIVE THEM THE ORDER NUMBER THEY DISAPPEAR. FOR THE CUSTOMER SERVICE I WOULD HAVE GIVEN THEM ZERO STARTS IF I COULD. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS SCAM WEBSITE. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!!!"
Banibal Kalita says"This company is a scamming business. Bought a laptop which did not turn out to be as described was told to deal directly with a China base company. Absolutely useless. Was told to pay for the postage nearly £35 and have the value of the package valued at £150 so you can see that I would only get £150 back. Hence it's not even worth sending back but just binning. BE AWARE OF THE SCAM. No help offered at all."

We are taking care of your request" and then NOTHING. After 2 months, I asked for a refund to which they answered "hey, your package is somewhere between china and france. We don't have any tracking number but call your post office"..."
