    How can i get a companys details? Possible Scam theglowman.co.uk

    HI, i work for a charity and ordered 100 glowsticks for a halloween event costing £103 on the 20th of October with a promise of 'express next day delivery'

    Its now the 9th of November and nothing has been sent to me..

    I have sent several emails as called the number of the website many times with no answer..

    The worst part is when you track your parcel it says it was signed for in May!!

    Is it possible to find more contact details for a website and a name of the owner etc?


    the website address is theglowman.co.uk

    thanks

    Keep us updated, its people like this that make it hard for small businesses to get an online presence, hope you get something sorted.

    There are lots of other people in the same boat, I`m afraid. He runs at least three different companies from the same address. There is even a facebook group "wellglow been ripped off by them", covering all three companies. The admin is a guy called Safe Buy.
    I have spoken to Jack Gordon on one occasion, so I know he exists and I guess he is the one posting all the 5 star reviews here and there i think i had to dial the number about a thousand times though before I got an answer. It took me about 8 weeks to finally get my money back, so I plan to make as much fuss about these rip-off merchants as I can. If enough people join the FB group, maybe we can get some interest from one of the "rogue trader" type journalists.

    HI newportfrank I will definately join that facebook group when I get home. theres nothing around about theglowman being a scam but plenty about wellglow! were going to try and contact the trading standards in nottingham to also complain

    Write a them a letter requesting a full refund. Send the letter using recorded sign for. Give them 1-2 weeks to respond. If you don't get a answer. Issue a claim through the county court. Do it online. All the information you need click link below.
