It looked a good deal, and I posted a query about the supplier of the RAM. Now, I can't find the original posting or my query. Where's it all gone?

Deal has been removed as there were possible self-promotion issues to do with the merchant, and ebay issues as well.

The whole thing looked really fishy - lots of new members rating the company highly (think they were moderators on the affiliated forum). Website was named 'awd-it.co.uk' but address 'awd-it.com', and item was on site and ebay at same time.

Well I am glad that somebody agreed with me

Ah, thanks for that. I thought the deal looked good, but I had not heard of the shop. I'm always suspicious of a very good deal from a shop I haven't heard of.

How do you receive deal alerts? Is it like a daily email? :oops:

In any case the price went up right away as apparently there were stock supply problems according to the several posters that were friends with the company owner.

Read into that what you want....

Hi sassie :) If you're logged in you can set custom deal alerts by clicking the Deal Alerts link at the top of all pages.

I would recommend RSS over email as it's more flexible and you don't have to worry about deleting emails from your inbox all the time.

You download an RSS reader... which shows all the deals as and when they happen. See [COLOR=Blue]this thread[/COLOR] for some help :)

Don't you worry about that...


eek, sorry! :oops:

don't mean to cause trouble, but I do worry about it - its nice to know who is and who isn't reliable, particularly if you are contemplating ordering from them, and I wouldn't wan't to be discrediting a company unfairly...

We don't allow self-promotion on the forums, full stop. So the posts have been removed while this is checked...

Ah, sorry, see what you mean. Would be interesting to know the outcome, although I appreciate its no doubt a very tricky area for legal reasons etc.
