    After a recent discussion in my forum, it appears that a UK company are acting as a division of Sunbeam Technology proposing the retail of their products.

    This company is no way related with Sunbeam and I suggest you all avoid using them as it appears they are taking payments and not sending out any orders.

    The URLS of the site are:

    www.sunbeamtech.co.uk
    www.pc-x-treme.net

    I have confirmed this with Sunbeam themselves....


    That is not our webside. We don’t sell to this customer and they are not out branch,

    Somebody use our brand do some dirty thing.

    Don’t buy any products from that web, Sunbeam also will not sell that web forever.

    Roy - Bright
    Sunbeam Tech


    Please beware and spread the word !!

    BT boys, you may want to post this as news.

    I ordered about £5 worth of bits n bobs and paid using paypal... never got anything back... Filed a complaint with paypal and got about £0.03 back. Was lucky, i nearly ordered 2 new cases and more from them. Have sent them many emails to which i get no reply. I have their domain registered address and will pay them a visit if i'm ever passing. DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING FROM THESE RIP-OFF MERCHANTS

    Surely he didn't register with his real postal addy if he was planning on ripping people off... Gives phone numbers for the hosting company, maybe someone should give them a ring to get the sites shut down?

    This bloke used to trade under a different name on ebay and did a runner with lots of money. A member of bit-tech placed a trade order with him and never received goods. He managed to get someback through PayPal but is still short £50.

    DomA what did you order from him?

    I contacted Sunbeamtech about 2 months back warning of this site and they said they were consulting lawyers.

    Its loosers like he that give modding a bad name.

    i have just contacted his host and they will not shut down the sites without legal documentation. All they said to do was send any complaints to admin@netkonect.net and if they receive lots of complains they will shut his site down pending review.

    i think he'd be better described as giving online retailing a bad name, rather than modding.

    will certainly let ppl know of this. maybe also tell a few peeps in manchester :naughty:

    I've just been reading some of these post. Some of you guys have some really good idea's...... :D

    I liked the idea of modding him. We could all just flame his E-mail..... :eeek:

    I don't think he will be getting any orders of us bit tech'ers... :D
