    the cdwow con

    this is the third time i ordered something from cdwow(stargate atlantis series 4) theyve taken the money out and then refunded because they couldnt get the stock i thought it was against the law to sell something not in your possession has this happened to someone else

    dont think its against the law. Loads of places sell stuff they dont have. Like play for example, you can order stuff that is not in stock and they will post it when they get it.

    Im surprised cdwow cancelled though. I have never had any problems with them

    Yes I had the same thing with Rainbow Six Vegas 2 on the Xbox 360, although i paid for it when it might have been in high demand due to a sale. When i phoned up to complain; i ordered it before a friend who actually had theirs sent to them, they said it was because they do random card checks and it took a while for mine to process. Rubbish! I just don't use them anymore.

    the difference is play dont take the money out of your account untill there going to send it and if they do they honour the price

    That's one con! they take out your money, then refund it. Crafty beggars.

    well there are some companies that advertise items cheaper than another store so you dont buy from that store and you give them your details and collect interest on your money then when the other store has sold out they inform people they couldnt get the merchandise

    i also have series 1-2 for sale or trade if anyone wants to make an offer its region 1

    This happened to me as well.

    Managed to get The Santa Clause Collection(3 discs) for £7.99, or so I thought:x

    They're now selling it for £17.99 and have cancelled this order.
    Email informs me it could take up to 2 weeks for the money to go back into my account, it didn't take that long to take it out, did it:pirate:
    Didn't use them much anyway, but this could put me off using them all together.

    Have had the same procedure pressed upon myself over the past, now once again had an order cancelled after taking payment.

    Cdwow have become a pain!!

    Maybe cheap ! But no guarantee!!

    just had the old cancellation trick done on me for the pre order star trek bluray boxset that they had at nearly half price. strangley the price doubled and i had money taken out of the account for the price quoted, even had an email stating there was a delay but i would definately be getting it.

    its so obviously a case of them not wanting to sell at the quoted amount, i have sent many angry emails. also i have cancelled all orders with the useless company. never going to use them again, they shouldn't be allowed to trade with these sort of practices.
