Anyone ever heard of A1game.co.uk????

Hi,

Yesterday I read on this formum that Gears of War 2 was available for pre-order from http://www.a1game.co.uk at £30.99 so I immediately ordered from them.

When I checked an hour later the message had dissapeared off this forum and I am now a little concerned about the company.

Does anyone have any past experiences with a1game.co.uk ????

Thanks,
Dustbag

Not heard of them before but it is still on there for sale at £30.99

I assume the thread was spammed as it was cheaper elsewhere (not online), so I don't know why it was taken off.

I saw it but then as you say it went in a flash.

Must admit I've never heard of this company before.

No contact details on the site.. only take Paypal as payment and a cheap looking site.. not surprised the deal was taken down from here. maybe you'll get it maybe you wont, did you see how many post the original poster had that made the post.. if it was just 1 then I think you've had it. Good Luck

mmmmmmmmmmmm, looks like I've been scammed by these scumbags.

Ordered 7th Nov 2008 still not arrived, several attempts to contact them resulted in standard stalling/general replies.

Now website down.......................................

Have lodged claim with paypal will have to wait and see if I get refund.

Hi, I ordered from them too, a couple of weeks ago ... GoW2 as well ... and I'm still waiting for the game to arrive.

I have had some email contact from them tho (see below).

Hello, Thank you for your recent enquiry. I am sorry to hear that your orderdelivery is taking longer than usual and I thank you for bringing thisto my immediate attention. I will contact our distribution center and mail service today for aconfirmation of your order location. Then I will contact you againwith a detailed information update and estimated delivery time foryour goods. Please be patient if your enquiry was submitted outside ofnormal work hours; I will endeavour to give you a timely reply asswiftly as possible.
My Regards,
Elena,Customer Support.

I also ran a check on the domain name through the WhoIS website and found that it's currently registered to:

Domain name:
a1game.co.uk

http://whois.domaintools.com/a1game.co.uk


All this info was found using Google.

I haven't used any of this info tho and, for my part, I'm waiting a couple more days on the off-chance that the delays could be genuine, although I think I'm in a minority with this view !

Whatever, hope you get your game ASAP. (I hope I get MY game asap !!!!)
Been looking fwd to GoW2 for a looong time.

Cheers

Hi there

I think I have been scammed too. On 8th November I paid for a Nintendo WII with sports pack and to date have not received it. I was not surprised at the slow delivery because it is free (sent second post parcel mail) but the fact that the website is now down does concern me.

I too lodged a complaint via PAYPAL today as I have received no response from the email address I have to reassure me. I paid £159.00 so that hurts! Be warned everyone.
:oops:

I think I've been scammed too. I placed an order on the 5th Nov (nintendo wii), its still not arrived and the website is now unavailable!! I've logged this with paypal and have informed my credit card company so hopefully I'll get the money back. However I'm really annoyed as the order was a gift for my fiancé 's birthday.
#8
I have too contacted my credit card company. I am now getting my emails returned undelivered which points towards a scam I think. Would like to believe our items will arrive but all the evidence is there that we have been ripped off. Anyway at least we may get our money back through paypal or credit card company.

Sorry to harp on but the details put on this site re: Cortex abc Ltd are incorrect.

I researched this through the domain registration via google and got the same details and then managed to get Cortex abc Ltd's telephone number. On speaking to the people on the other end I learnt that the domain for them is A1games with an s on the end - hence wrong website. Obviously this husband and wife were mortified to learn of the similarity of the company names and I said I would put on this site the correct details of the website concerned. The gentleman concerned is a computer consultant and he searched the domain registration (which I have subsequently also done) with the correct name, ie. A1GAME.CO.UK without the s. This is the address registered:

1275 E
Rodeo Drive
Beverly Hills
Los Angeles
California
90210
US

Sounds ridiculous to have such a posh address doesn't it? Anyway this information may be useful for putting on our claim forms. I know the name Christoper Hope is who my credit card payment went to as this is on my paypal details. Good luck everyone!

Yeah, unfortunately the contact info I posted is incorrect, sorry.
The domain I looked into was a1games.co.uk and not a1GAME.co.uk (note the mising 's').
#11
I've had experience of this site,I ordered a Nintendo wii paid £159.99 and I've never received it!
Claim into paypal,site dissapeared and 3 disappointed kids this christmas as I cannot afford to replace it.

#13
I have also been scammed by [url]www.a1game.co.uk[/url], reported it to pay pal and my bank, hopefully will ge the money back

:x:x:x:x:x
I too have been had, ordered a nintendo ds and 1 game for kids for xmas, got the usuall email about confirming address. Emailed them when goods hadnt arrived after 6 days, was told to allow 10 working days and then another would be sent, no reply from further emails and now site gone, have put in a dispute with paypal and registered complaint with watchdog.
Usually very careful with this type of thing, didnt order goods from website in hong kong cause i thought they were a bit iffy, how silly i was.
Would like them to look my kids in the face this xmas i hope they have a nice xmas B******s.

Hi, I to have been robbed by these scumbags, and have been told by Paypal there is no way of retrieving my £23.99 I paid for a game.. They say that if this account comes up again they will try to claim the money back, but if there have been complaints going back to October, then I cannot understand why Paypal have been paying out to these people. I will certainly question this with Paypal.
