AVOID FLAT4ONLINE !!!!!!!!!!

Hi

Just thought I would warn people about using Flat4online. Ordered a Lightweight pulley set, which never turned up. You can only contact them vi email no telephone number, when it did not turn up I emailed and the guy said if it does not turn up after 15 days he would give me a refund. Still never turned up and now there is no response to any of my emails.

Based up in Scotland, I am that pissed off that I am actualy thinking about taking my holiday in Scotland so I can go up and get my own refund. ;-)

Its a common issue, been posted a few times in the past,
the odd person gets their goods ok but its a very small minority.

there are a few of these (email) type sellers popping up, so before you buy do a quick google, ud be surprised what looks a really professional site comes up as a iffy site,
Ive spotted a few that use the same postal address but are different names on the web, sometimes more then 2 web sites under different names.

I never buy from a site that has no proven phone number, a minute to make a phonecall to verify a site is worth every second.

Doesnt mean they are any good still mate,
I had a search for a carbon spoiler, rang and spoke to the seller 4 or 5 times but they still lied about finish and quality lol
