    "Fraudulent" North Face Site?

    Hi Guys, just a word of warning about these guys;

    http://www.northfaceoutlet-uk.net

    It's pending at the moment, so I'm not saying that they're definitely dodgy, but it's not looking good.

    They've failed to deliver the goods after 13 working days, are not responding to the contact form on their website and the support link on their emails comes back as 'domain not recognised'

    It's still ongoing and I'll be the first to let you all know if it turns out ok, but it might be an idea to avoid using them until I know what the score is.

    to be continued.....

    That website looks as dodgy as a 6 note.

    Definitely dodgy stay well clear, I have a friend high up in NF are they trying to get this site removed. I'm afraid It's likely you've lost your money, I'd consider changing card aswell as they now have your details. as I said on the other thread.. if the deal is too good to believe it probable is.

    C'mon Grump, obviously I've seen that post

    perhaps I should have been clearer...

    I'm sure there was a Third Thread on this....(there was) but it might be part of a "cheap kit" posting.

    Well this is what's happened;

    Got onto the bank and requested a 'chargeback'; they've investigated and credited my bank account.

    Got onto the website a bit more, sent them some more emails; they've refunded the money!

    So at the moment I'm +50 up on the deal!

    It'll not last; the company will dispute the chargeback and it'll be cancelled, but at least I'e got my money back.

    Bottom line though; avoid this site, it does look dodgy, also, do a bit more digging before you buy online. There's some good advice on the Money Saving Expert site
