    Yeah,,I know that...

    He's not getting back to my texts either.

    I must have done something to him that I don't know about..Or he's not telling Me.

    Anyway,his loss,,I'll just take My business somewhere else.

    Pity.

    If satbox.com are uk based i cant really see him driving to Dublin to give you a box.

    skyboxf3 are the way forward they are a HD box and can be got from DCRECEIVERS.co.uk for a lot less then a dream500 sd

    Satboxes.com is definitely an Irish site he is based in Co. Louth and his nane is Tony, I have dealt with him many times and to me he is really a nice guy and I have also recommended him many times in the past.

    Hi guys I am also having a hell of a game with this dreambox.me.uk (as in nav azhar *** Leeds Road Huddersfield) I do have his full details, hiding for the moment.

    Spent almost £400 on two vu+ duo's in july and one kept rebooting, now showing red light only despite only flashing with correct firmware from vuplus.tv.

    Sent email and got a reply send order details
    sent order details and got a reply "send order details)
    Logged in on web page, went to orders (975) and sent those details via there.
    He replied where did I send it to
    I replied I am awaiting him to TELL ME where to send it to

    Now he refuses to to reply and has took over a week to get this far.

    Have now sent one saying I will do the following:
    contact trading standards
    Contact barclaycard
    post up everywhere I can to warn others if he does not sort it.

    The best bit is I have just gone back on to the dreambox.me.uk site and "my orders" and he has deleted that transaction but left others more than a year old lol

    What's even better is on there the vu+ duo are spelt dou and his address on the parcel delivered spells hudderfield instead of huddersfield.

    I would add that he is taking the p*ss out of the wrong person if he thinks he can just fob me off.

    Will point him to this if he does not respond in the time I have given him.

    I will in fairness also post any positive results

    sales@satboxes.com.........you will not have any problems with tony.i have been dealing with him for about two years now.the guy is a gentleman and on occasions he has delivered to me directly saving me the delivery cost.only recently i bought a motherboard for a 500s and when i went to fit it i somehow blew the front display panel i explained it to tony and he quickly sent me out a display panel from an old box he had.he would not accept any money of me.i strongly recommend him to anyone looking for a good supplier. i do know he is having difficulties with his website at the moment.it,s strange alfa that he did not reply to your e.mails.

    Well guess you have learneda lesson.

    As we used to say in school 30 years ago "Never Trust A ...."!.

    Aint that the truth!

    Personally I think this ripoff merchant needs a visit.

    Perhaps from Inland Revenue as no doubt he will be fiddling any taxes as well...

    Just a thought!!!

    A Baseball bat usually gives you full rights for a refund plus a large compensatory deal!
    >;O)

    These con men couldnt give a fig and will mess you around forever - they just dont care.

    Get in touch with the inland revenue , name and shame him on facebook , twitter , blagger.com, citizens advice, watchdog , small claims court + and more...I've done it and got my money back plus compensation...
