OK taking this opportunity to vent my anger, disappointment and suspicions at the continuous cancellation of orders from multiple sites, multiple customers, all within a short period of time.
Recently, some bargains have been posted on HUKD from various different sites, some honestly did seem a little too good to be true, others perfectly fair. I've had about 6 or 7 orders cancelled all within roughly a week! This seems rather odd to me, so I'm beginning to become suspicious.
Some examples are SceneIt! £6.98 and Blacksite Area 51 PS3 £2.99 from Sainsburys, Catherine Cookson Collection DVD £4.44 at Asda, 16GB USB stick £1.99 @ Play, plus others.
Clearly I'm not the only one as most others have had their same orders cancelled for various reasons. These can be 'stock issues', 'availability issues' and 'price errors'. However, there have been the odd few rare customers who happen to receive their orders successfully which really adds salt to the wounds! These orders could have even been made AFTER mine was made. Hmmm!
This is the first time I've experienced so many cancellations in one go and from various sites, so I'm wondering what on earth is going on? I can't help but to feel suspicious, as well as very angry and disappointed. It's put me off buying any more bargains online as they're only going to end in disappointment.
Is anyone else feeling the same? Is there something fishy going on? Is this a marketing ploy? Are there worldwide web database issues?
