I am going to copy my previous message here just so people know what a terrible company Ebuyer has become.

Get ready to send copies of your I.D. in. I had this on my last purchase from Ebuyer. Needless to say I have asked for my details to be deleted as I am not willing to do this and rather spend my money with other companies.

Customer security is paramount at Ebuyer.com. Therefore, in order to maintain a secure shopping experience for all our customers, all our orders are subject to strict security checks.

Before we process your order we require the following information:

A copy of the picture page of your passport OR picture card of your UK drivers licence along with your passport or drivers licence number.
A utility bill that is at least two months old.

Please note: Non GB passport holders will also need to inform us of the issuing country of their passport. Acceptable utility bills are gas, water, electric we DO NOT accept telephone bills or bank statements.

Your order has been cancelled pending the information requested. Once we have received and verified your identification we will email you to confirm and all further orders will be dispatched without delay. Please allow 48 working hours for your identification to be processed and verified. In accordance with the Data Protection Act your details will not be stored or shared with any third party companies. All copied documents will be destroyed as soon as the identification process is complete.

Please fax your documents to 0871 528 5192 or email to [email protected]. Be sure to head your fax/email as Security Check and include your Order Number on each page. The above email address is for identification purposes only and any queries sent to this address will NOT be responded to. If you have any questions about the identification process or general questions regarding your account, please contact our Customer Services Team on 0871 521 3300 or via the online Enote system.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. This process is designed to benefit the customer and with your cooperation and help we can assist in the fight to reduce online fraud.

Not sure how the above makes them an awful company? They're protecting themselves and you from fraud as far as I can see. Rather this than find out your bank account has been cleared out but someone who's stolen your details.

I've never had a problem with Ebuyer just the opposite in fact, my Powersupply blew up and was over its Manufacturers warranty and were happy to replace it for free, i'd rather spend an extra £20 and get it from Ebuyer over others.

The problem I have with ebuyer is that if you submit a review and include anything slightly negative, they will edit those parts out or change them without notifying you.

Having said that, I've bought quite a lot from them over the years before finding the above out, and never had any problems.
#5
I have also had to submit proof of ID stopping me from buying anything. It prevented my from buying my 6950 from them so I turned to CCL instead, not my problem lol wont buy from them again most likely
#6
It wasn't just needing I.D. to buy anything but that's the main thing. I ordered a motherboard that was last of the stock. In the E-mail it said it would take a few days to sort out but can continue with the order after. I checked the stock level and the motherboard was available to buy again. So even if I did all they wanted I wouldn't still get what I wanted in the first place. Been spending all my money with Scan.co.uk now and very happy to be lining their pockets rather than Ebuyers.

Ahh well I have ordered a couple of them for crossfire , have had quite rubbish service in the past from Ebuyer also, however willing to give them another try for the saving of about £70 quid over alternative companies, I was gonna go for the 6970 and crossfire it also, but both of these are the same price as one of them, and the performance increase isnt worth anything like that. Also 3D for my new projector will be good :) Thanks OP.

Why would ebuyer tell you to send your passport by fax? That is just crazy. A minute's work with photoshop and you would have totally valid ID that you were 0bama 0'reilly or whoever you claimed to be. Ebuyer have been pretty good over the years but recently it's true they have definitely got worse.

I gotta say I too would be annoyed if I had to send a company ID just to order something, that's very strange.

Why would any company need that? I can understand trying to prevent fraud but that's weird given no one else seems to need to do so.

I wouldn't trust a company that needed my passport details and a copy of recent utility bills, as this could then be used further if they had any security issues with their systems.

They could take out loans or anything against your name once they have this information !

It's not protecting us buyers, it's protecting their own company profits.

No thanks.

I dunno about that but I definately wouldn't give them copies of those documents either, it only takes one unscrupulous member of staff...

Never had a issue with eBuyer when thing have broke they have replaced them or refunded me very quickly usually with 2 days of getting the product back, im not sure as to why they are asking for this I.D unless there has been some kind of fraud on the account at some point.

I usually buy from Scan but they are very poor when things go wrong and don't seem to know there **** from there elbow when it comes to faults, I had a Asus motherboard about 18 months ago and when i put my quad core into it the temps went through the roof so i removed my cooler and reset it but that made no difference so i requested a RMA which they provided me and i sent the board back, a week later i had a email saying i owed them money as they had tested the board and there was no issue, after a lot of messing and arguing they waived the cost and sent me the board back. I then put it all back together and the same issue straight away over heating within minutes, so again i rang them and they asked me to send the board back with the CPU and fan, which i did and again they sent it back saying that it was fine, temperatures of 80c+ are acceptable with a top end titan HSF and a top end board. I was that annoyed i went on Scan care on Hexus and posted that there staff where idiots and they thought that 80c+ was a normal temp when the CPU was idle, within hours i get a email saying that i shouldn't have done that on the forum i should of contacted them, to which i explained that it had been back a number of times and that they said it was normal, The guy from scan arranged to have it collected the next day and have it looked at again. Within hours of getting the board to them i got a phone call telling me that yes there was a issue with a sensor on the board reporting incorrect temperatures and was indeed faulty as i had said a number of times. They offered me a replacement no refund no apology no good will gesture. the replacement took a further week to arrive along with my CPU and HSF in total well over a month to sort it and where very rude and this wasn't the only time ive had to go on Hexus and moan before the issues where sorted and returns where processed and returns issued after leaving me without vital components from my main server for weeks on end.

All in all scan are great until replacements are needed or refunds ive never had the issue with eBuyer or Novatech.

What will be better 2 of these in crossfire or 1 6970?!?

I actually posted the 5870 here a few days ago, but the deal got frozen solid due to ebuyer apparently being an awful company; despite the fact that neither I nor anyone I know has had any issues with them. It's a great card, though there's only 1 left in stock now, which is hardly surprising.

Regardless, this is a good deal and I'm voting hot.

Tbh, if you dig you can find bad stories from all these companies. If that's the worst you can get from Ebuyer, well, they can rely on me spending there if their prices are competitive.

I had a similar experience with Scan: just pray that you don't have to deal with their utterly useless RMA department.
On the other, I had good experience when sending back faulty items back to eBuyer, Novatech, and CCL Computers!

Wow, alright for some. I had exactly the opposite experience about a fortnight ago. Roccat Kone mouse failed (due to a known inherent fault) within manufacturers warranty, I sent seven messages to Ebuyer to try to get them to replace it, stated SoGA about a million times, sent two emails to their complaints department. I was told repeatedly (and rudely) to send it back to Roccat or spend £20 getting it independently tested and a fault report written before they'd accept it for an RMA. Shame as they were one of the last UK retailers I'd not had hassle with.

with regards to the security checks, looks more like a phishing scam than real checks. theres no law requiring anyone to have either a passport or driving licence so does that mean you cant shop there?? all that info is what somebody would need to create a dodgy account in your name, seems iffy to me

Having said that, I've bought quite a lot from them over the years before finding the above out, and never had any problems.

I never managed to get that much published. I submitted a 2/5 review of their G422 SatNav, a product where so many corners had been cut it was nigh on useless. It was never posted on the website, but several 4/5 reviews were posted shortly after.

The biggest problem I've had with the returns department is that when my monitor developed a fault it took the RMA department a week to tell me I should phone a third-party repair company to get it fixed.
#28
Not had a problem with eBuyer yet, but if they ever asked me for that bull, I'd sure be shopping elsewhere. Good price for this. I have a 4890, so pub question: is this any better, and is it worth upgrading?

I do not think this is a standard procedure of validating a new account with ebuyer.I bet something went wrong while they tried to get hold of the funds (i.e. the account address did not match bank-registered one) so the system automatically stopped the order and the email was sent.

I have used this address I live at with all the things I buy online. Never had any problem at all. As I said before it is not just the extra I.D. that was requested but they then sold the motherboard they said they would save till it went through. Sent a few E-mails and the staff there also don't seem to be trained in any kind of customer services.
They was once my favourite place to buy my computer stuff from. Now I wouldn't touch even if their prices may seem cheap.

The 5870 is a beast of a card. That's what I went for. Plays any game I want at the highest possible setting. So you are safe with a 5870 :D

6870 crossfire would pummel a single 6970 however you have to think about power requirements, resale and if you are prepared to game with a dual GPU system i.e they are a little less predictable performance wise relying heavily on drivers as to whether you get good performance or not.

Again please see my other comments. Even if I did send in all they wanted they still wouldn't have had the motherboard I had in the first place even after saying that the sale would be completed once they had the documents. That on top of asking for the I.D. in the first place is why I will not spend my money with them.

I am astounded at the stupidity of a lot of people these days. Its slave mentality.

"orite, well ma securitee iz impurtant tu mee soz ebuya can take me deeails yeah?"

REALLY? All the person above was complaining about was being required to send in a copy of his passport to these people and to prove his address to them. Imagine if you had to do that EVERYTIME you made a purchase online.

For those too ignorant to realise the whole point of credit cards and VISA cards is to make purchases online with the peace of mind that you are PROTECTED under any wrong circumstance.

If for example, someone did purchase from ebuyer using a stolen credit card or debit card (which is unlikely as the person whose card is stolen would have cancelled it anyways), the victim simply would report it to his bank and they would take care of it. Ebuyer would then obviously be covered under THEIR insurance policies, not to mention have a recourse/protection by the law. (I am assuming someone has to sign for the item itself).

ALSO the banks wouldn't lose their money either because they would simply charge back the sums.

Educate yourselves on how things work in this day and age please.
