    Bad new for those awaiting a delvery from Direct4homes or World of Linens.

    Is buyithere part of this group?
    edit ... No it's not!

    i think there are a few members on here who will lose their money

    really sorry for you all

    hopefully if you have paid by credit card you can claim back

    if not ring your bank and see if you can stop payment - good luck

    My payment came off my debit card in November - don't suppose there's any hope of getting it back?

    This information is very odd because when you check the Companies House website there is no mention that World of Linens are in administration ....hmmmm

    Just a glimmer of hope for everyone waiting for a delivery.....my parcel has just arrived, missing one item but i'm relieved. I really hope everyone else gets theirs too

    They still seem to be trading as of 1500 24/12/2008 might have a hope of receiving stuff

    Ohhh noooooo I placed an order on the 16th of december and have just found this, havent got my stuff yet. Funny thing is though they said last order for christmas was the 17th. How can they do this to people? there website is still up and running at this minute which appears to let you place orders, that cant be right surely?

    EDIT! on reading about administration and such I feel better now. Firstly they must still be trading as a going concern thats why the website is still up and running. Secondly as I paid by Visa Debit my bank will be able to do a chargeback PHEW! I thought id lost £95 then......

    The website is now down and I've still not recieved my order placed on the 16th. Has anyone made contact with the administrators yet? I was led to believe if the amount purchased was less that 100 pounds you're not guaranteed to get it back from the credit card company even. Is that right?

    Just an update, ive contacted the administrators listed above. Theres a freephone number on there website which is 0800 195 4585 if you want to ring them. There is a meeting with the director tomorrow regarding peoples outstanding orders, theyve been compiling a list of those that have contacted them.

    What made me laugh is the director was on holiday for christmas and the company went into admin on the 22nd december. I bet he flew out on the 21st the scamming swine.

    If you still waiting for stuff I suggest you ring them up and add your name to the list.
