Thanks admin for letting us chat about this ....

there is an option to cancel, its only £20 if we end up loosing the money, the only thing im worried about is this "extreme pc" people getting my card details ??? do they get it ?
#2
believe it is just amazon that gets you card details
[admin]#3
I don't believe Amazon Marketplace sellers get the card details. They just get a payment from Amazon. Happy to be corrected by anyone in the know if this is incorrect.

I hope you understand why the thread was closed. First off the chance of getting it fulfilled is pretty much nil as it is a private seller and not a big company that could take the loss. Second the potential for some kind of fraud or scam of some sort may exist. I don't know the ins and outs of Marketplace selling to know but there is the potential...

does MOPS cover online purchases?

is it still on the go?
#5
seems that extemepc have fixed that difference for there listings on amazon
#6
With it being an Amazon Marketplace sale, the funds are delivered to the seller via Amazon. Only Amazon should get to "see" your card details. However the seller will get the money almost immediately and then has X number of days to complete the transaction by delivering the goods.

So the worst that could happen is that you lose whatever you've paid and that then you have to recover it from Amazon. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
#7
would it be easy to recover ??

and can extreme pc end up taking more than what we paid ?
#8
Recovery from Amazon is easy, but cant begin I think until 30 days have elapsed and has to be started within 90 days.

What is the Amazon.co.uk A-to-z Guarantee?

We want you to buy with confidence anytime you make a purchase at Amazon.co.uk. That's why, when you purchase at Amazon.co.uk Marketplace, Auctions and zShops, we guarantee the condition of the items you buy and their timely delivery with the A-z Safe Buying Guarantee. As you pay for your item immediately using Amazon Payments, the security of your credit card information is also guaranteed under our Security Guarantee.

They can't take more money from your account than you've already agreed to. Remember that the money goes to Amazon first who pass it on to the seller.

Someone just posted a sony camera deal on amazon. £14.59 with this seller which was obviously a misprice as its over £200. Deal was pulled and has quickly been rectified at Amazon.
Does this company do this frequently?
Personally after a few bad experiences with Amazon market place I wont be dealing with anyone offering goods on Amazon website unless its Amazon:roll:

ExtremePC is a part of Micro-logic.com not a private individual.
Micrologic Computer Supplies LTD is registered with companies house.
They will undoubtably cancel orders.
The only potential scam as I see it would be them compiling a database with everyone's adresses for sale to the highest bidder, and potentially identity theft through this.. Rather slim odds though.
Amazon will reimburse fully if item doesnt arrive but it will take a long time.
#16
hahaha

would be funny if the seller from extreme pc noticed the prices through this site !!

I'm a big buyer of CD's and in particular CD singles.

What I found is that some sellers link the item that they have for sale to Amazons catalogue. This is OK if there is only one version of that single.

Some unscrupulous sellers were linking items they had to the wrong Amazon item. Say CD single has two versions one and two. They would like CD1 to CD2 and vice versa. They would also link non special/ltd items to special/ltd ed items.
So I ordered special/ltd ed CD's and got the run of the mill ones:-(

Happened four or five times over a two month period all with different sellers. One even claimed to be UK based but CDs came from Florida.

Had to complain to Amazon and only after months of wrangling did I manage to get refunded.

Postage costs also suck on Amazon market place

The age old saying is normally true. If it sounds too good to be true it normally is.

If someone can sell it cheaper than Amazon then it may be fake/stolen/mispriced/or a slightly different model to the one you think you're buying.

Apologies to any genuine market place sellers out there but, for me it's very similar to EBAY and its for this reason I think HUKD also ban Amazon market place deals from being posted.

Is there any guarantee that a marketplace seller calling itself extremepcscouk is definitely the real one? It does list the same phone number but I doubt you'll get an answer at this time on a sunday.

Thanks for the info seancampbell. Very useful.
#24
I've just bought a couple of things from them.
I don't see this as a scam as such, I just won't receive the items and they won't get paid.
The seller has an ebay account but it's nothing big and not a lot going on.

just had a look at my orders on amazon and the two items I have purchased from exthreme pcs through amazon have been changed now and I cannot alter or cancel the orders. Don't know if this means that exthreme pcs have accepted the order or payment for the order has just been made.

You should have an option to cancel your order.
I have.

I know but, and this is a guess, exthreme pcs have either accepted the order and therefore I cannot cancel the order or exthreme pcs have taken/accepted payment therefore accepted the order.

Either way I believe any money is held by amazon for a set period of time.
#35
I very much doubt anybody will have their Credit Card compromised. I'm sure Amazon pay the seller, after you have paid Amazon.
I always keep a very close eye on my Credit Cards online.
#36
We pulled a thread earlier today from the same marketplace seller. I alerted amazon to the goings on, as it does not sit right with me. So I emailed customer services about this about 6 hours ago.
#37
To be honest, (in my opinion) this is just a waste of time. I can't see the seller sending the items and Amazon will refund everybody.
#38
worth a punt at, would be gutted if people where getting TFT monitors and cameras on the cheap and missed out.
#39
I missed the camera by about 5 seconds, in the time it took me to choose payment details the price had gone back up, went for a printer rrp £220 for £20 instead!

But you may be quite happy if you miss out on losing your money for 30 days until you claim it back from Amazon. This isn't a typical misprice from a big company, this is a private seller who can potentially take your money from Amazon and hang on to it for 30 days before you claim it back. That's just one scenario. I'm not saying one way or another, all I'm saying is the potential for this to go badly pear-shaped is way way higher than if you were buying from a proper retailer.
