Found 20th Nov 2008
Orders been cancelled, don't expect to many will recieve them. It seems they don't like getting orders or being advertised for FREE on HUKD either "without our authority" - See e mail in post 1

E mail today:
Dear Customer,
We have had an unexpectedly large demand for our Bird box camera and we are sorry that we are not able to deal with your order.

A refund has been issued to you.

[COLOR=Red]This large demand within a very short period of time is due to somebody placing this bird box on a Deals website without our authority and was beyond our control[/COLOR].:roll:

We removed the Bird Box camera from our website early on Monday Morning 17th November, immediately we became aware of this situation.

I would like to assure you that the bird boxes are being issued strictly first come first served.

Kind Regards

You would think they would appreciate sales in this market......weird

LMAO! Oh no, people ordering something from your website?!?!

Sounds like someone wasn't happy about doing any work!

Thats what i was think, they are still getting the money for it. Weirdo's

Well i htink they dont like disapointing people. It being put on here and them having to cancel the orders can have a negative effect

They didn't care about disappointing me - tried paying by paypal, and the payment went through, but realised an hour later, according to their website, I hadn't placed an order. rang up, and was told I must have done something wrong, and anyway,... they've ran out now, so I'd have to cancel my payment.

Terrible customer service....

But surely they have a stock system that allows them not to place orders when stock is depleted ? It does astound me that they need to sl*g off a deals site when surely it's their own business' inadequacies :?

The thing is probably 99% of their orders were because of it being posted on this website... they'd have probably still had them sitting there otherwise... I mean, how many people had even heard of the company before aliandk's post? I certainly hadn't....

I paid by Mastercard and the refunds back today

Can't understand why mine was cancelled as I ordered about 2 minutes after it was posted up ??? 60 orders in under 2 mins :?

You would be suprised. Many sites do not have a live stock system. Some are based on the ammount left unpicked etc.
I seem to remember the reason many small websites are not allowed is because one deal caused a company to go out of business.

yea

i got the same except i didnt get an email advising me, i just saw the refund in my bank account. phoned them and they had the cheek to say someone posted it on a website.

woooo, big wow,
