Please be warned!!

IPAD for sale or Apple PC or any electronics.
On Sale by Worthing Electronics.
They appear to be based in Bloemfontein or polokwane or other far out of reach places.
And they seem to also go by various other names but also based in way out places.

I have purchased an Apple IPAD from them, paid them in Full through EFT.
They promise you 24hrs delivery and 30 days money back guarantee.
U get a tracking number from a bogus courier company which they say is part of Fedex which will deliver to your door.
Then u see your parcel getting tracked from the UK.
Everything seems fine until it comes to SA, then its tracked as HELD BY CUSTOMS.
Then u get a call from them saying to pay an extra R2500 for customs and they’ll pay you later.
If you fall into this trap, you will be now be swindled out of your money twice.
They promise you your money back, but nothing happens.

So, please be warned of all these so called companies like worthinge electronics or the like.
Which are not based in the so called big cities.
Do you homework properly and find out if this is a legitimate south african company.
U rather go directly to them if it’s a legal store than await this nightmare.

Any company that uses a cell phone number, fax to email and a gmail account raises eye brows, but hey that's me

Yes if one asks them more they even give addresses of the head office in USA and UK.
The one in the USA is on a big highway with no building in sight. The one in Bloemfontein is actually a boutique hotel. The one in UK appears to be someone's home.
I am still waiting for their banking details ?? I presume one can report this to FICA ?

Do your research when buying off the net. 1 the prices are below retail, 2 ad looks dodgy! I can't understand how people can trust so easily! I don't even trust bid or buy users with high ratings haha! I read everyone's comments and then decide if I trust them! Google is your friend.. If it sounds to good to be true..........
