It seems I have been very stupid and lost £800 to the above, as the "Poratble Oxygen Concetrator" bought and paid for on the 6th May still has not arrived.
"James Stokes" of aeirconcentrators.com emailed a response to me to say that all is well and as the units come from the US there may be some delay in receiving my order. He would send me a Tracking Number when he receives it. He also sent me an Invoice which carried no VAT and the money has been debited from my account by virtue of a Bank Transfer. The address given on the website is a residential street (google maps) and the phone number is seemingly re-routing with a delay and odd sound.
I know - how stupid can I have been to have completed this transaction without any security. Whilst his website claims to accept PayPal and debit cards he could not accept these methods of payment on this order as the costs are too high.
I have contacted Barclays Bank and gave them the details of the transaction. They informed me that they had frozen the associated account on suspicion of fraud and subsequently sent me a series of questions to complete. I have returned these and live in hope. I therefore think it highly unlikely that the purchased item will ever arrive but will keep you posted.
I have also contacted the firm of Solicitors Heather Mains And Co, at 33-35 Daws Lane (the address shown on aeirconentrators.com website) and they informed me that aeirconcentrators are using their mail address illegally.
I have also contacted both UKAS and SGS whose logos appear on the webpages illegally. They are also known to a competior at intermedical.co.uk who are aware that their own website has been copied by aeirconcentrators ltd. illegally and have run this same scam before. There website is hosted by GoDady and their domain details can be found at statscrop.com/www/aeirconce... The Police antifraud dept has given me a crime reference number of NFRC140500636155.
So much info now that the horse has bolted. Woe is me!!. How many other respratory challenged customers have lost money from this vile, heartless and cruel scam?
Please join me in tracking down this criminal and discrediting his (company ??)
