    Anyone else been ripped off by a very large worldwide computer company, like i have just been?
    They refuse to ring me back...
    They won't return postage money for wrong goods...
    They waited 2 weeks to tell me that 5 (out of 11) of the items ordered they did not have in stock (the goods should have been delivered 28th Feb)...
    They tried to palm me off with gear i didn't want...
    They have made me late on delivering the finished computer (which will not get delivered at all now)...

    My advice: STICK TO BUYING WITH OcUK !

    I hate moneygrabbing uncaring large companies...

    Going into the garden now to hang myself with some freshly cooked spaghetti...:)

    Well from experiance a handful of the stuff not cooked... and stab it through your eye, hard. That would work!

    But hanging yourself with cooked stuff is just asking for failure and a waste of good food xD!

    and theres nothing you can do?! hmm... should have read the T&Cs first innit :p

    if they made a mistake then its your rights a sa consumer not to be penalised for it. were the items they substitued inferior to the originals you ordered? if not, keep them.. but if yes, kick up a fuss and take it as far as you can. i wouldnt stand for being treated like that :o

    I take it that its the one that is orange on its pages, and ends with Buyer and is universally crap, and posts slowly, and gimps you with high postage costs?

    Or is it the one that suitably rhymes with "Hell"?

    Build your own for the win! :)

    NO WAY are they getting away with it my friend. I know my rights and they did not keep up their end of the bargain they entered into the contract with me. Mistakes and mishaps i can excuse (sometimes) but blatant corporate >> We have your money and we know 90% of people won't take things further attitude << just dosen't wear with me. I shall be victorious in the end...WATCH THIS SPACE :)

    it'd be even better if he hung himself with computer wire and then the postman showed up with all the crap he ordered. i'd actually laugh, probably.
