    Hey all this is Sean Managing Director from www.ps2upgrade.com

    I know it's all gone a bit hectic over the past 2 weeks, but our stock supplier, has had problems and so have we. There for no stock has been able to pass through.

    Thankfully on Saturday - 11am we had a delivery and all stock was packaged and sent off on 14/09/04.

    You should all have your gear by Thursday/Fri Latest.

    I guarantee i am no Fraud and have dealt with many satisfied customers before, this is one major cock-up though I admit and am trying my hardest to settle things out straight, it is a little hard though when 20+ Customers are complaining at once and you have other matters too.

    Its done and dusted now, so can you please all post here when you get your product.

    Kind Regards,
    Sean,
    Managing Director.

    thanks for replying sean

    it would have been alot easier if you had just explained this to all of us.

    instead of telling us they had been sent out on different occasions

    this is why we all thought that you were a fraud

    and i hope that u aint. as i dont think you would have posted here if you were a fraud.

    thanks

    i agree, sean brought all this mess on himself by telling everyone porky's.

    all we all needed was an explaination, assurance that we would receive as soon as the stock was available, maybe even stating on the website before we purchased that item was out of stock, and would take some time, but he did none of this.

    i'm sure most of us would have purchased elsewhere, if website had stated out of stock.

    let's hope we get them today, and put this mess behind us.

    at least we all learned a valuable lesson about web shopping:

    only order from websites that have contact addresses & tel no. - it's not worth the risk.

    if using paypal, use your credit card not debit card. - credit card company's should cover you from internet fraud.

    also it's worth paying the extra 10% to purchase from a reputable company.

    got mines today thanks sean

    like i said earlier u should have just explained your situation. i would have been fine with waiting if i was aware of the circumstances.

    a word of advice. be honest with your customers in the future, it saves us and it saves u a lot of hassle. i would probably use you in the future, but i would prefer to be told exactly what was going on.

    thanks again

    ps san186 at least you have got it now.

    Once again guys much appreciated for being so suttle and patient,

    I apologise once again for the cock-up and inconveniance, moreover the time wasted.

    We have a new supplier/ decent staff members now so business should be fast and accurate as before now :)

    Anything that is brought from www.ps2upgrade.com is now 101% Dispatched within 48hrs because I personally make sure - not the staff as previous times.

    Thanks once again guys and hope to hear from you all soon.

    -Regards,
    Sean,
    Managing Director.

    P.S.

    www.ps2upgrade.com

    robbed me of over £11.00 via ebay by charging me for a bloody url!!!!

    Deal with at your peril.

    Still fighting with Paypal for recovery of the funds.

    Don't know how people like that sleep at night.

    Probably in very large, expensive, comfortable beds with a big fat pillow for their big fat heads!!

    are you real ?

    the website address is in the ebay listing !

    nearly as funny as the one where someone paid over £100 for an xbox console box (just the packaging )!

    did you pay through paypal with your credit card ? claim it back off them, if you did.

    We now have similar probs with this 'Company' (check out Sean's details on the ps2upgrade message board - a Managing Director? At 15 years old??!!).

    We placed an order with a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT COMPANY for a Swap Magic Combo set, went through their PayPal check-out, and our payment was REDIRECTED to ps2upgrade.com!!!

    Obviously, I did some digging around on this....

    First, the ps2upgrade.com website doesn't exist any more - their proboard message boards are still there, but their main website appears to have been pulled.

    A quick whois search shows that the site is owned by a 'John Smith', who resides in Glasgow....only the address given is non-existant, and the telephone number belongs to a car dealership, who - unsurprisingly - know nothing about ps2's!!

    Seeing as Sean has posted onto this very board on a couple of occasions, perhaps he could enlighten us as to why he's used false reg details (an offense in iteself)....

    Needsless to say, Sean's eBay account also looks to have been terminated, and we've filed a complaint with PayPal, and have also been in contact with Trading Standards.

    Anyone else having similar problems at the moment?

    Take care folks!
