    They look OK Gary, the whois checks out OK, just that they are showing as a UK co, but the registered address is America, bit odd.

    Their SSL certificate is linked to this shop:

    lawsonshop.co.uk/

    No real information whatsoever, On the site they have a contact us address in Wales, But the whois details aren't shown, The address if for Dreamhosts, Not clickshop.

    Shame as the site is quite nice, But the above points to avoid unfortunately.

    Looks like houses too, going by the addy on the website.

    Your call Gary, But House address > No Whois Info = Something not quite right.

    They may well be dropshippers, But why have a house address as a "contact us" llink, But leave Dreamhosts address on the Whois record (I presume its Dreamhosts as it says "[email protected]", So i'd imagine the company has had the Whois info hidden.

    I can't even find a telephone number on the site.

    I found this;

    At this time, we apologize that we cannot offer you assistance over the phone. However, we will try our best to answer any questions you may have over email (emails are generally answered within 24-48 hours or less.)

    Personally I would never use a site without a listed telephone number.

    What sort of company doesn't have a telephone?:roll:

    I thought it was against UK law for a retail website not to list a telehone number... but I'm not 100% certain on that.

    Me to, but I am also not 100% certain about that, it is certainly the mark of a poor company, and one thing I always check before buying.

    And it's one of the criteria we would use here for instantly removing a deal for a new company.

    I bet they are a dropshipper. :thumbsup:

    Same address to.

    All more for the avoid list methinks..... :thumbsup:

    Yeah, from all of the above, not looking good Gary.

    I'd say if they are a dropshipper then delivery would be about 14-28 days.

    How did you pay Gary?

    I've ordered a card from this online store and after waiting almost a week with my order "pending" i got frustrated. However, when i emailed them asking what the deal was they said they'd had some problems with stock and they would refund my postage.

    I'm still no closer to receiving my item at the moment, but for the quick response and willingness to compensate for slow delivery they do deserve some points on the service front (not very good if i don't get my item tho i guess!)

    I'll keep you updated on what happens but their response restored my confidence somewhat...

    There are a few online retailers who dont have phone numbers such as ebay or audiocubes.com

    Strange, but the same happened to me. A few days later the goods arrived... I have not had a refund for the postage, but it said 'try' in the email.

    Well after threatening to cancel they've sent me an equivalent as an alternative. i'll try it and see what the quality's like before i try and get postage back i think, it's supposed to be here tomorrow. I am not holding my breath...

    Just thought I'd let everyone know that my item arrived and it's pretty good quality. no discounts or freebie but life's too short to try and chase them up for it, i'm well happy with my DS supercard so it seems these guys aren't so bad after all...

    Did you ever get sorted Gary??
