WARNING ABOUT FIVE STAR STORE CO ( REV COUNTER DEALS 31/8/2013 )

Post by Guest on Thu Sep 12, 2013 4:30 am

AS SOME OF YOU MAY REMEMBER 1300GT SPOTTED A GREAT LITTLE DEAL FROM THE ABOVE FIRM FOR A 52MM REVCOUNTER FOR £9-99 PLUS VAT
AND POSTED ABOUT THEM ON SATURDAY 31/8 AT 3-03PM  AND I SPOTTED IT AT 9-09PM AND THANKED HIM
.
THE NEXT MORNING SUNDAY 1/9/2013 I ORDERED TWO REVCOUNTERS  ONE AFTER THE OTHER AS IT WOULD ONLY LET ME ORDER ONE AT A TIME --
FIRST ONE AT O9-46AM AND SECOND ONE AT 9-50PM AND PAYED TWO PAYMENTS BY PAYPAL AND HAD CONFIRMATION OF THE PAYMENT AND HAVE CHECKED MY PAYPAL  ACCOUNT AND BOTH PAYMENTS WENT OUT OF MY ACCOUNT AND WERE CONFIRMED AS BEING PAYED AND HAD THE UNIQUE 
PAYMENT CONFIRMATION NUMBERS OF BOTH PAYMENTS ON MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT AND CONFIRMATION THAT THEY HAD BEEN SENT THE FOLLOWING DAY
AND I RECIEVED BOTH OF THEM IN ONE GREY DELIVERY BAG . 

GREAT SERVICE AND OK VALUE FOR THE PRICE. ALSO LOOKED UP A LOAD MORE OF THEIR PRODUCTS THAT HJ SENT A LINK TO AND THEY HAVE A 
FANTASTIC RANGE OF GEAR FOR SALE. LOOKS A VERY PROFESSIONAL OUTFIT --- UNTIL AT 2-18 AM I AM WOKEN UP BY AN EMAIL FROM E-BAY
SAYING THAT THE ABOVE COMPANY HAS OPENED AN UNPAID ITEM CASE FOR A 52MM CAR MOTOR COUNTER TACHO TACHOMETER GAUGE METER 0-8000
RPM REV BLUE LED AND UNLESS I PAY £11-58 IMMEDIATELY  THEN THEY WONT SEND THE ITEM I HAVE ALREADY GOT ( YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE --
NOT !!!! ) AND EBAY WILL RECORD IT ON MY ACCOUNT -- WHICH COULD LEAD TO MY ACCOUNT BEING SUSPENDED ON 16TH SEPTEMBER..

THAT NOW MEANS THAT I HAVE GOT A WHOLE LOAD OF RUBBISH TO GO THROUGH WITH EBAY  JUST BECAUSE THE ABOVE OUTFIT SEEMINGLY CANT DO THEIR SUMS RIGHT. 

I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT REMOVING ALL MY FUNDS STRAIGHT AWAY INTO MY BANK ACCOUNT. 

HAVE ANY OF YOU EXPERIENCED THIS BEFORE AND WHAT WOULD YOU ADVISE ME TO DO ???

HAVING SEEN THE BAD PROGRAMME ON TV A FEW WEEKS AGO AND THE PERSONAL EXPERIENCE OF MY FRIEND KEITH ROGERS HAVING HIS ACCOUNT 
FROZEN WITH£99,000 IN IT AND FEATURED ON THE PROGRAMME I AM SORELY TEMPTED TO DO THIS.

HOPEFULLY ANY OF YOU INTENDING DEALING WITH THIS COMPANY IN THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE WILL CONSIDER THEIR POSITION VERY CAREFULLY.

                                                              A VERY UNHAPPY AND DISGRUNTLED WOODY.

I HAVE NOW TAKEN THE PRECAUTION OF THEM STOPPING MY ACCOUNT AND WITHDRAWN THE 
MAXIMUM OUT IN ONE GO JUST IN CASE THIS GETS NASTY. 

I THINK THIS IS REALLY DISGUSTING HEAVY HANDED TREATMENT BY EBAY SENDING SIX EMAILS ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

 I DONT WANT TO CLOSE MY ACCOUNT WITH PAYPAL  AS IT IS TOO USEFUL BUT I FEEL 
 LIKE DOING THAT.

CAN  ANY OF YOU LOOK AT THAT SITE ( FIVE STAR ) AND SEE IF YOU CAN SEE A WAY OF CONTACTING THEM DIRECT  BY PHONE OR EMAIL- YOU KNOW HOW HOPELESS I AM AT USING THESE STEAM POWERED COMPUTERS. Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed 

                MANY THANKS, WOODY

I have just sent an email to Five Star laying out the details of my payments to them and their mistake and wanting an email appology AND a written one and also informed them that several Members of "A" Forum have also purchased items from them and that I have warned all members of such Forum of MY experience. IN ALL my communications I have been very very careful with my wording and made no mention of the name of the Forum.

I have now been awake for nearly 4 hours now sorting this out ( I hope-- but wont hold my breath)

Blimey glad you lost the caplocks towards the end. Paypal are absolute bastards, I hate them but unfortunately ebay is sometimes the best place to sell. Why do you keep cash in your paypal account though? I always draw mine out instantly and always pay via a credit card. I aint having those bastards making any more money out of me in interest no matter how small it is.
What programme are you talking about? wouldn't mind a watch.

I made a post on this earlier today but its seems to have vanished , anyway hope you got things sorted Stuart . The problem is that Ebay and Paypal are one and the same , and if buying off the net it is safer to use credit / debit cards than Paypal , as you can get your money back if it proves duff .

All the best

Eddie . P.S Dont dribble on the van when you fall asleep mate Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Right . The saga of the Revcounters. Just trying to briefly go over what I have already said. I tried to buy and pay for two but it wouldn't let me so I had to 
order 1 tacho twice. I have now checked my email order and EBay only notified Five Star of ONE payment although I had to go through the process twice and paid Five Stars invoice both times at £11-58 a time. I got confirmation of both payments from 5 Star and two days later two Tachos arrived in one parcel.

I can only surmise that Five Star got only the one notification from EBay and
didn't check to see why they had sent two when they they had the email for
one from EBay yet they had sent me two confirmations of payments and the following day sent notification of dispatching two Tachos.

The reason EBay sent 6 emails at 2-58am this morning is that they say Five star 
informed them I had ordered 8 Tachos. If that were so I would have had 8 requests for £11-58 a go so somebody is not telling the truth.
Anyway after four and a half hours of going round in circles managed to contact
Paypal, EBay and Five Star.  At 11-05 I got a very nice fully apologetic email from 
Five Star about the mistake but stating that I had ordered 8 Tachos and that was why they contacted EBay to say I had a payment outstanding an gave me four
days to pay it or my Paypal account would be frozen and negative feedback on 
EBay.
Anyway all sorted now and I will buy some more bits from them. Phew !!!!

Hey woody,

If you got one parcel,

But made two seperate orders,

If you launch a paypal dispute to say goods not received,

They will only have proof of postage for 1 item.

So you could get one of your payments refunded Laughing

Nice try Matt but I am afraid my conscience wouldn't allow me to do that.
