BUYER BEWARE

Am in the process of looking for a new mobile phone, having decided on the Samsung s10 I searched the internet for the best brand new deal.

The site that came up as by far the best price seemed too good to be true, so a bit dubious looked at the site that appeared to be a Yorkshire business.

Being still dubious I thought I will have a run out and collect a phone ,before doing that I searched for online reviews.

The site had a picture of a genuine business and a contact phone number ONE DIGIT different to the genuine business.

Then I decided to look for online feedback, the genuine shop had good feedback and also a message that a scam site was imitating them. Lots of people had lost money and been told to contact action fraud.

SURPRISINGLY THIS SITE IS STILL ONLINE DESPITE SEVERAL REPORTS TO ACTION FRAUD.

MORAL, DON'T GET HAD THIS FESTIVE SEASON.I DIDN'T THIS TIME!

have you payed for it using paypal or debit/credit card?
if so you should be able to claim it back but may need to contact the police for a reference number.

Pete ,

I did not buy it ,after doing research I would not dream of it ,but many people have done.

You do have some protection when using credit cards, but not as simple with debit cards or money transfer.

At best a lengthy process to get all or some cash back.

The surprising thing is that this SCAM is still live on major search engines.
