Hi all!!! I bought today from a website called ilovemyghd.com and I posted the good deal on tthis site, after it had been deleted i gt worried and was advised that it wasnt a greatly reliable looking site due to lack of contact address etc. Do Is there anything i can do?? If i ring up my bank in the morning and cancel my payment will this be able to be done??

Eck im worried now, are they going to have my card details etc now too??

Thanks!

Did it on maestro

If it's on their list i wouldn't be as worried about it.

looks ok to me,i can see it on the list

sorcha_a, as I said in my PM, the site is registered in the USA.

General things to check when looking at a new site are contact details & when the site was created, but my very words were:

The site may be perfectly fine, but, like a lot of non UK merchants, they … The site may be perfectly fine, but, like a lot of non UK merchants, they aren't included on HUKD at this time.



So don't totally panic at the moment. :thumbsup:

looks ok to me, when you paid did you go to a secured page?

No i dont think so, I looked for the little padlock and didnt see it, thought it would take me to another page before sending my info but it didnt it just sort of finished lol! And then the little red padlock appeared! Said something about unauthorised content or something, whoopsie!!! Sounding worse and worse eh? Lol :whistling: But I'll just blame ghd if theyre dodgy!!! lol

hehe thanks!!! Sorry, im a worrier, cant help it, i'll just wait and see!! ;-)

hi, i ordered from this website last wednesday and still not received anything!!! I'm beginning to think we've been ripped off. I have sent them an email but to no avail, the only slightly reassuring thing is they are approved by GHD themselves, don't know how much weight this will actually carry though.
I'm very annoyed!:x £107 later too.

Thats not good news, I read some people that have similar thing on Yahoo questions too, might try contacting GHD themselves, the only reason we trusted these people is because they approved them!!! Maybe theyre just slower then they say, I havent read about anyone thats waited longer then a week so far!!!

If its shipping from america it will take longer than 3 days, especially at this time of year. I'd leave it a few more days before you worry.

Thats what I thought, I could've been ripped off for less on flea bay! Lets keep our fingers crossed that they are slower than they say. I also read the Yahoo thing, I've not seen anyone that has received anything, have you? My husband tried phoning GHD and they only open 9 til 5 so I'll be contacing them first thing, I'll let you know if I get any joy.
I ordered these for my sister and I needed some shine spray for myself, when i looked into buying an extra bottle (you already get 1 free with GHD) it said they were out of stock so maybe, just maybe they're waiting for some to be delivered to them before they can dispatch our orders??!!

Ahh ok, im feeling more and more confident as we go along lol, yeah thats probably it, and if they are in America then it will def take longer then they said!! Maybe it was 'Dispatched next day' and not delivered next day lol, cheeky gits

On the email receipt it has the email address in the send to box as [email protected]. The same name is in the terms and condtions page on the ghdhair website
Also I spoke to somone at ghdhair.com(main site) and they said ilovemyghd.com is open form 8 - 4.30 and can be contacted through them. I am trying in the morning.

terms and conditions page: ghdhair.com/uk/…ons

Noticed that the payment shows up on my statement as Jemella which is the the company that owns ghd?

just to let you know, our parcel arrived this morning and everything is as good as it says. maybe we should have more trust in officially registered sites!?

Horaayy!!! Lol nice one, perhaps so eh?? Hopefully mine will arrive before xmas now though if yours only just arrived!!! Cheers :thumbsup: x

My parcel arrived this morning. Must say in the end I received an excellent service, shame on the contact although when I spoke to someone at ilovemyghd they did say they were going to add some contact information.
