Hi All

I have been advised by one of the mods emma to put a note in here as I must say I am a little upset at how I have been treated today with my first post...

This afternoon I posted a deal for a new site I found on here a few weeks ago HDmania.co.uk for a DAB Radio, been on here loads liked the way everyone gets along thought it would be good to get involved... any posted it and got a nasty pm from emma accusing me of working for the company... PS I am unlucky enough for Brum Council:-(

I have just spent almost a £100 with company and the attitude of this site is that theres either a problem with HDmania or you guys have clashed in the past??

Anyone else got into trouble for posting HDmania.co.uk deals are they banned please help as I dont understand why all the accusations???:oops:

Jen:thinking:


I'm sure Emma didn't mean to be nasty, she's lovely really. :)
#3
Sorry, but I think I know Emma, and I've never heard of her sending a 'nasty' PM to anyone, in fact I'll stake my reputation on it. Maybe it was taken the wrong way, I'm the 'blunt' poster on here, not Emma. :oops: :roll:
Also, I don't recall ever seeing a post for this company on here before.

Thanks dino, the sales guy said they ship majority of stock direct from distributors to keep costs down.... is that a problem with posting their deals tho?? should I cancel my order?? have you seen any other people having problems??

Drop Shipping then? I don't like the idea of using a Drop Shipper, too many people involved.
As I said, I've never heard of them before, I'm guessing you paid through Paypal and I hope you funded that with your CRedit Card.
The problem with this Company, as I see it, they do not have the goods in their possession and they are very new in to 'drop shipping/selling.
#6
I paid with my card, as I dont like paypal, the owner is going to call me tm pm to discuss any concerns I may have, I will leave a post with results of and confirm receipt of the goods, the sales guy seemed really nice he said I will get the radio by friday at the latest.

Dont the majority of websites ship direct from manufacturers for tvs seen that on a few recently???

A lot of the websites that do that have good reputations and also as you say they get them direct from manufacurers. A lot of Dropshippers tend to get there stuff direct from Asia etc. and not the manufacturers.
#8
It is entirely up to you who you buy from and I really hope everything goes fine for you.
I've had experience of 'drop shippers' and it's not all it's cracked up to be. As I said, too many people are involved and to much can go wrong.
Who processed the credit card payment?
#9
Hi Steve, last post b4 bedtime...

They use paypal as there merchant, when I got to the payment section I was automatically transferred to the paypal website where it gave me a choice of paying either with paypal or the by the card of my choice.... when it went thru, the paypal site closed and I was redirected back to there site, the sales guy said it was paypal website payments a new service for merchants...

Thanx for all your help...

Hi JENNYJAYZ

I think this has been gone through with you in pm's and as you were not satisfied with our decision you were told to post publicly if you wish.

Can you please state whether you have any association in any way at all with HDMania? I know you have denied any involvement in your pm's but if you wish you are welcome to answer this question publicly and definitively without qualification.

Thanks.

I am happy now, one of the directors just delivered my marshall to remove any concerns I had about the site....Seemed a nice guy explained that small items like dab radios, cameras are stock items but anything over £250 in value was held at their UK Distributor for next day shipping for orders before 1pm using target.

You guys had me worried, with the comments about them, he admitted they are only a small company but are working to hard to improve the site everyday and would make clear what was stock items so people arent mislead as he could understand why I was worried...

thanx for all your help steve your a real sweetie.....

I Have No Association With Hdmania.co.uk Apart From The Great Deal Just Had, I Hope Everyone Is Happy.

WOW, The director hand delivered your Radio, that's a great service. :thumbsup:
You must live near this 'Company'?
How did you originally find them?
Have you informed them of this thread?

I'm happy if your'e happy :p
Great to hear that you have nothing whatsoever to do with this Company.
I still think it's best to let them 'settle in' before any 'deals' are posted for them.

A few weeks ago they had some 5.1 speakers on the forum, on their site they had the radio for 99 delivered so bookmarked, checked around and hey presto a bargain.... if you havent seen them check out the Pure Marshall DAB radios they are sooooo sexy, reminds me of my days as a groupie ....lol
#24
I've got the Pure Marshall DAB....one fine looking piece of kit and it sounds fab:)
I got mine from John Lewis with the £10 voucher so only paid £89.99,but the price on this website is good,never seen them advertised for less than £99.99.
Quidco with John Lewis also,so on balance would still say my deal is the better one,but as long as you are happy Jenny that is what counts:thumbsup:

Ok. Would it be ok if we post the pm's on this thread between yourself and the mods here? They are private messages so unless you give permission I won't do so. However, to be really blunt I do not like it when merchants self-promote and I really don't like it when they lie about it and further try to manipulate the situation.

So last chance. If you wish you can disappear and not post again here, or you can stick by the statement you posted above denying any involvement unequivocally and give me permission to post your pm's, or lastly you can take this last chance to own up and honestly admit your involvement.

Just out of curiosity Paul, how did you get to see them? :whistling: :whistling:
If they are 'related', why didn't you just ban them? Why waste my time and the time of other members with this poxy thread?

Just checked the address and it's only 1.4 miles from me. I could go and knock on the door and ask if Jenny can come out to play if you want.
#28
my door or hdmania's door knock either I feel sure either my fella or them will be dead polite for the first five minutes. Post my PMs but also post the emails I have been told have been sent by HDmania without a proper response......

Does it have to be a big company to post what I thought was a good deal, I cannot believe what is happening I am going to print this off and keep as know I am getting people threatening to knock my door..... for posting a deal have you all lost the plot.......

If anyone knocks my door im calling the police and giving them a print of this thread as no doubt your admin will delete it...

Your honesty in this matter would be appreciated - I have reason to believe you are connected to the site. You are not permitted to post deals for them - you must use the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page.

This is a community forum, and people with connections to the merchants are not allowed to post deals.

Hi

I have removed your post to be checked by admin. Can you tell us if you have any connection to that site, as there are slightly different channels to follow if so?

Regards, Emma


Hi Emma

No Links to the site, I bookmarked them when they had some speakers on the forum for here, as the price for them was good, thought Id have a look when after the radio, site had changed a lot hopefully service will be quick as not used them before.

Is it a problem because this is my first post, got a couple of deals of here before wanted to try and get involved.

You've lost me, nobody knows your address, do they? How could they know it?
Is Admin right about you being and HDmania being the same? Do you have some kind of 'interest' in that company other than as a Customer?
#34
Though id post the PMs for you, I have nothing to hide.... look at the way I have been spoken tooo.... and ppl wonder why I was worried about HDmania FYI I have just sent this in an email to the partner I met tonight at HDmania for him to run past his legal team.....

Hi Emma

Just got your message when looking through the forum, I dont understand the problem, I got what I thought was a good deal wanted to get involved here everyone seemed friendly on the forum..

Is it because of a problem with Hdmania, should I cancel my order... have they ripped other people off???

Please let me know as this was a good deal, dont want to lose my money as I paid with my debit card and I dont think I can get the money back very easily?

Please let me know asap

Just phoned HDmania as you really worried me.... my order has been approved I will have the radio by friday.

Sales guy said the MD had been banned from here, a few weeks ago for getting involved in a forum discussion on whether the website was a con...

Seemed genuine enough.... just hope I get my stuff, did suggest if you had issues with HDmania that you should call them on xxxx xxx xxxx...

Let me know if I should avoid them, ill confirm when i get my radio.

Hi Emma

Just so as I know in the future which companies am I allowed to put deals on here for, obviously you guys have an issue with HDmania and i have been caught in the middle.

If you have a problem with them contact them directly, unless I dont get the radio I dont have a problem with them.

I dont like being accused without proof of being linked to company when all I did was buy a radio and try and get involved here....

I also do not like repeating myself emma, who is the webmaster here as in your first email you suggested my posting was being passed to them I very unhappy with your attitude towards me all I did was post what I thought was a good deal.

Did I do anything wrong apart from pick a website thats on your **** list???

You misunderstand me, I dont have a problem with you personally but I do have a problem with the way I have been spoken to in the emails it appears there is a problem with you and HDmania.....

I dont want to get involved, but I will be contact the admin to ask for an apology, if you dont want me to post HDmania deals fine but I thought this forum was about deals, I got a deal wanted to tell ppl about it...

If I start a post in the forum regarding this episode I suspect it would be deleted, just like my first deal.

This has not been a very good experience of posting of your forum, with accusations flying at me. I have just received an email from the MD at HDmania who has asked me for a time he can contact me regarding this matter, I ask you again is there any reason why I shouldnt buy from HDmania??

Emma, What made you think there was something untoward here?
#37
Admin will be along to discuss that shortly, I'm just sharing the PMs, so that's all i can say for now.
#38
P.S. I really don't see how I have been "nasty" in any way.
#39
If this company is banned blank its name from the thread.

Then Jen's MD has no free advertising:-D
#40
Thanx "emma" I cant believe what is happening here, I have emailed carl at HDmania as their is obviously a problem between the admin here and him, i dont want to get involved and dont like scumbags threatening to come round my house.... over a post on the web...

Ban me delete the thread you are the all powerful admin here, as such you can limit the companies people post about have I caused a problem becuase I picked a deal from a new small company???? thats better than the usual amazon or play???

Dont threaten me, im going to bed....
