Hi,

Anyone ever heard or used http://www.designer-let.co.uk?
Some of the phone deals look too good to be true and I can't find any reviews about them...my spider sense is tingling!

Thanks

This says it all for me from their about us page

Please note whilst we are accepting Google Checkout as payment option, it will take ten working days from purchase to clear into business bank account until shipment can be made.

If paying by google its as good as paid, can't understand the delay

Plus it's a free website setup

As fake as they come.....


New payment options being integrated shortly, sorry for any inconveniance. All Google Checkout payments will be refunded due to google not providing a payment service anymore, it will take 3-4 working days. We only accept bank transfer at minute, until further integration.

Bad design well no one cares but if they are fraudulent first contact I guess would be the hosting company of the website

I only clicked the jeans link, and they only sell 5 different pairs! lol.
For a shop that sells everything from phones to jeans they dont have much stock.

The site is obviously as bent and fraudulent as they come.

Lol @ only accepting BT, haha.

Thank you for this, I was looking for a new phone since mine's been stolen and found this website. Knew it was too good to be true.
#12
Another linked fake website is http://www.focusgifts.org.

Reporting these bogus websites is difficult unless you have actually lost money to them.
#13
i ordered and the iphones and they came brand new and boxed and unlocked. Its actually genuine
#14
I just harassed the person on their live chat about the iPhones, asking them all kinds of questions, I asked how I can be assured that if I was to order the iPhone that it would a. arrive at all and b. actually be a genuine iPhone to which THEY ASKED ME how they would tell if it was genuine, and they also stated they're new and they work.
I replied to the question of how they would tell if they're genuine with, you would have bought them from a reputable Apple wholesaler who is licensed to sell iPhone's wholesale, to which they replied with yes. I then asked if I could have their wholesalers name stating I would like to do research, I was then told - they cannot give me that information and that I should be able to get a good deal from eBay. When I said so I'm right and you are dodgy, they said, think what you like, bye.

Something stinks to me, either you won't get anything or you won't get a genuine item.

i tried to buy a iphone 4 from them they took my money and i did not get the phone it took a while but i got my money back from moneybookers who they have a account with. please nobody trust this site. just looked the site has closed be aware they might try and open another site.
#17
Hi I'm just wondering has anyone ordered of the website and actually got a phone? They've closed designer let and now opened a website called tech let. Has anyone actually got a phone off them?
#18
Its 100% a fake, for god sake nobody buy anything from that site
#19
This guy now appears to be trading as a site called techlet, same mo, cheap electronics advertised at prices which must be too good to be true, say's he can only accept bank transfer payments at the moment conveniently, you'd be stupid to give him your details.
#20
This guy is a real con merchant. I am chasing him at the moment - he doesn't reply and doesn't deliver the goods. Don't use him.
#21
I bought a blackberry back in June, its still not arrived, been chasing for my money back and keep getting fobbed off saying its going in my bank but it never does. Is there anyway i can enforce the refund? I have kept all text transcripts from the online chat and text messages to my phone from their responses as evidence.

Go round to his house with a few of the "boys", that would probably work.
#23
Get in touch with your bank, you've been had. Your not going to get your money back emailing them!
#24
I have used this website and was conned out of my money, but what I have done is report all of the details (bank details that he uses, website address both designer-let and tech-let) to action fraud and consumer direct. The bank will not do anything as they say its my fault, but what I do believe is that if more of us report this persons detail to action fraud they may take action as we do have his bank details which would be registerd to an address. Also this person has used the same details for the other website which he has opened, which is now closed but I have a screenshot diplaying his details (bank account).
#25
How stupid are people who are actually ordering from these sites. Ah well as they say... "a fool and their money are easily parted"
#26
I was dumb enough to purchase a blackberry from here. worst experience in my life, took me 3months, essay letter to my bank with all the emails and text messages from the "family" owned business which imports its products from abroad. and filed a complaint through moneybrookers to eventually get my £185 back. They refused to pick up phone calls and would text me at 2am asking me what i want to do. when i confronted them about there website closing they said they were fixing something, its been like this for months now. hope no one else fell victim to these a$$holes.
