Their prices seem cheap compared to others. But can't find any reviews for them.

I’ve just googled the address of 58 Avenue De Wagram, 75017 Paris and hundreds of business names have come up, so this address must just be a letter box address that companies can hide behind, that makes them look like they have a presence in Paris.
Another website under the Eurotext umbrella is Online-escooter.uk

If members paid by debit card, then unfortunately there is little or no protection. Even using a credit card for goods under £100 does not afford you the protection of Section 75 where the credit card company will refund you. The scammers know this and that’s why they press you to pay by direct Bank Transfer or Debit Card and often offer price reduction incentives for you to do so.
These are professional Scammers that know all the tricks to lure you in.
If anyone used a Debit Card, then they could ask for a chargeback, but a refund is not guaranteed.

So I called my bank to ask and I have to wait until Friday as that’s the last working day they could deliver on. If it’s not here by that time then they can raise a dispute.
Just want to say, Thank you to everyone who has posted on here as it saved me a massive headache, i was going to buy a drone for a present from this technodrone.uk site, everything looked good except the prices which although looked too good to be true were still shouting "Buy me, Buy me" , luckily i found this thread.

I had a look at the Hubsan drone which was on for around £200 which is a bargain including free delivery, i checked Hubsan's official site and it was £400 and that's why i tried doing further checks and landed here, i think someones mentioned it already on here but unless they have Paypal as a payment method I would stay clear, DJI drones you can get at a good price from the official DJI site but the others Hubsan and the like you can get from ebay and amazon if your in the UK stick to UK sellers as some overseas sellers sell at a cheap price but sometimes you can end up paying import tax as has happened in the past to me.

Anyway thank you for the heads up on this website and keep up the good work
soooo glad i looked here before i tried to purchase. guess good deals really are hard to come by
I ordered an Xbox controller about a month and a half ago and still haven't recieved it. Raised a ticket with them to see where it was, and where the DPD tracking number was. I was told it was delayed until mid November. Since then I've contacted them a few times for an update and even asked for a refund but they don't respond anymore, so that's £30 down the drain I suppose.
Also I forgot to mention that when I ordered the controller, it said it would be delivered better 5 to 7 days. I noticed someone else said that deliveries are 10 to 15 days, so there's a red flag right there as well.
Thank you all for posting this here. Very useful info
Andrew Walters - you are most welcome.

Just to repeat someone elses comment above - There is also another website (probably more if you look carefully enough) which looks dodgy.

It is sat next to Technodrone UK on Google searches for cheapest PS4 - called Nerdpitch UK.

Also, I've just looked on Trustpilot (see screen shot) and from what I read it looks like Technodrone have reported all of the 4 bad reviews they have been given.

I'm just wondering why they don't like people complaining ??

I saw someone asking about the site technodrone.uk.
Whatever you do do not buy any items from technodrone.uk or cartbright.uk.
Both of these websites are allegedly online shops specialising in electrical equipment. Both are completely fraudulent and no one who orders will receive their products. Both are owned by the same people trading under the umbrella of 'SAS eurotext imports'.
There are numerous complaints regarding both sites. Both use the same scam. You order an item that will be delivered in days. They then email to say delivery will be delayed. They will keep this pretence going until you eventually ask for a refund at which point they will no longer reply. They also block any bad reviews in review sites stopping people from seeing them. Avoid at all costs.
38987627-Vdy2F.jpgI was one of the reviews there trying to block they are a total scam I have lost £185 , I have been in contact with the free web designer company they use prestashop and sent evidence to them they are supporting a website been used to scam people . There legal team are investigating. I won’t see my items or money again but hopefully this site get closed down. They also trade under about another 5 company’s which are set up through prestashop . I have notified them and the national fraud team so let’s hope they get there day . Techno drone are looking online at reviews to try and block what they can let’s make it viral and expose them social media or any way possible. Sorry to all the victims I know how it feels spread the word . Also help me by contacting prestashop on Facebook messenger and report them.

I mean they have the cheek to report my post but all reviews are bad

Definitely scammers - stole £30 from me for an item that never arrived. Bizarrely - given they were stealing my money - they actually replied to messages (though only to make excuses and delay).
I wish I'd seen this before I purchased a switch from them on 4th November - still not received it or any responses to my emails and after reading the comments here I don't think I ever will
Now contacting my credit card company to make a claim
I cant log in to the site
Nerd pitch UK looks like another site to ignore. Google shopping is pushing ads for pokemon shield which show identical ads and prices from techno drone and nerd pitch. Both claiming to sell pokemon sword/shield new for £33.40.

Edit - I've reported both techno drone and nerd pitches Google ads to Google. Got to try and do something to stop people being ripped off at Xmas, but I doubt Google will do anything.

How is it going? My bank ask me to wait until next Thursday.
Saw a comment of someone asking about techno drone and have decided to share my story , on the 30th of October I bought and paid for a ps4 from this company , and delivery was due within 5 to 7 days , when my purchase didn't arrive in the stated time I emailed them asking were my order was and received a email back stating that there had been a delay and would arrive by the middle of November , the middle of November arrived and still no parcel so I went on my order tracking and my order was still only at purchase accepted and was still not dispatched so emailed them again and told them that if had not arrived buy the 15th of November I will cancel the order and would want an immediate refund for the purchase , I received no reply from this company , so opened a case with my bank . Like many people I tried to find reviews for this company , and could find nothing . I tried again last night , and found that trust pilot had started receiving reviews in the last 3 days , none of which were good , everyone on trust pilot told the exact same story as mine , I am an elderly lady and it took a long time to save that money for my gransons Christmas present , I know I will get my money back ,but it angers me to be ripped off by an advert on Google that actually states by Google , people trust goole and would never question the advert .steer clear of this company they are scammed of the highest grade.

this is literally what i did. I bought a ps4 on the 5th of November from this site and I didnt look at anything about this company. I was a fool. They told me it would arrive in 7 days (so before the 12th of november). nothing arrived at my door. I contacted them and they told me that it was out of stock and it would arrive at the end of the month. I told them HELL NO I am NOT waiting for a month just for a ps4 and politely asked for a refund. They said this: '' Can't you be patient? We are trying our best.''. What is this a joke?! I said no ı cannot be patient etc. and sent an email again. Nothing. I sent another emal complaining. Nothing. I sent another one yesterday. Nothing. I told them I would take legal actions as they ignore my emails and refuse to give me my money back. Nothing. What should i do? Should I wait until the end of the month? Should I file a lawsuit? Should I email them again? Please can someone help me. This is the first money I have earnt by working and I do NOT want it stolen from me.

If you paid by Debit Card, go into or call your Bank, explain that you purchased something from a scam website and ask them to do a chargeback. It may not work but you’ve got to at least try. If you paid by Bank Transfer, accept that you may have lost your money. This is an overseas company that will not respect UK Law.

Just to clarify the 'by Google' is just who is hosting the adverts. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Do not think that means the endorse the site - they do not. People SHOULD be questioning the advert - its daft to not. This is even on the Computing syllabus in schools now

My bank asks me to wait until this Thursday. How should I explain this scam to my bank?
I purchased ×2 xbox one controllers about 2 weeks ago they didnt turn up within expected delivery time so I emailed the to which I received an email saying they were waiting on restock so I should expect my items by the end of November , i was not happy with this and asked for a full refund to which i received quite a rude email back saying cant i be patient and my order would be with me soon after trying to get back onto their website to email them again as that's the only way of contact you cannot reply to emails sent to you , ii now cannot get onto their site at all it's just showing an annoying little loading drone, I have been scammed again it seems, I would definetly avoid this site at all cost, you may be saving but what's an extra £10 £15 to know you are actually going to receive your goods.
OnlineEscooter.uk is another umbrella of SAS eurotext imports and is linked to the above sites mentioned amongst others.
In fact there is about 10-15 sites all linked in the UK alone, loads more linked throughout Europe all trading (scamming) from

EUROTEXT IMPORT S.A.S. with a capital of 5,000 € Head office 58 avenue de wagram 75017 Paris France.

I was also duped by such a great unbelievably cheap hoverboard & kart for £130 quid.

I knew instantly it was dodgy but the price was awesome and was hosted by google when I typed in cheapest hoverboards uk, so I kinda thought this must be legit.

Also 3 day delivery with DPD again maybe legit

WRONG!

Money taken straight away
dodgy invoice
Email saying three week wait
replied by email asking for refund
email didn’t work, email thorough website only.
emailed back,automated response
asked for refund again
automated response......then nothing.

nothing at all.

All of their websites are exactly the same layout.

they delete your trust pilot reviews too.


i bet they’ve made thousands and thousands of pounds and with Xmas coming up even more..

i paid direct debit and got a charge back from bank instantly.

Get on on the phone to your bank to get your money back. They will honour it as didn’t receive goods.

Dont wait for your item it won’t come

Reported to action fraud..police

Had to share this...keep up the good work
Techno-Drone or Nerd Pitch .... very simple ... don't go anywhere near them. No response to emails after multiple enquiries about an order. Good advise on this page for all online purchases .... look for a phone number, use paypal or similar. Fortunately only spent (lost) £30 on a switch game on this site ... lessons learnt.
Some good news. Further to my last post I confirm that I have now had a full refund from my credit card company after they investigated Techno Drone.
Techno Drone Phone Number.
RCS Paris 852 124 767
also using the name Nerdpitch uk so be careful
Never fallen for a scam before, but I ordered a nintendo switch on 12.11.19 via Technodrone. Email confirmation, payment taken, nothing since. Have informed my bank and have to leave it 1 month before they return the money and start a case. Nothing guaranteed. Gutted!
