Britta and StevieB,
Thanks very much for sharing your experiences with i-store.co.nz,
Sorry you're going through the same thing though! That's at least 4 of us on here...
Stevie, what phone number did you use to speak to the guy? Was it 021 0692818 which Mich used?
Mich, you still haven't said what happened when you got hold of them? Every time i've called it has gone straight to answerphone!
I think i'll wait and see if anything arrives next week, and then go to the police. I guess $200 isnt the end of the world for me, but if something can be done about it that would be great. It is bound to have happened to others as well, who haven't found this thread!

lets do something about this then,
i just bought some ghd's that were delivered for the wife & they stopped working after 3 goes, you could blame me for being cheap for wanting to purchase them at two hundred bucks but at the end of the day everyone wants a bargain & clearly we have all been ripped off.
to be fair... for something like technology or appliances i just cannot see the point in purchasing something fake & it never crossed my mind that they would be dodgy....i mean its like buying a fake heater....go figure ! & for two hundred bucks if it was fake i would at least want it to work haha !
the facts (that are all mentioned in this forum) about these muppets are below :
-we have an address for these fools in auckland
-we have a mobile phone number
-we have an auckland phone number
-we have a bank account number ANZ
-we have a name
-we know they are ripping / have ripped us off.
lets pool our resources & get onto these chumps,who has some ideas, i myself & keen to do a little visit to their home address if anyone else in Auckland is keen to come along ?
some ideas i also have are maybe we pull some favors ...
who knows someone in the bank they bank at to start doing some digging & get their account frozen for illegal activities, at least to buy us some time to get a case against these fools.
who knows someone in telecom or vodafone who can start tracking down the phone numbers.
how can we take down their site to stop other people getting burnt, surely we have some wizzes out there ?
lets take it into our own hands as no one else is going to help us, lets hunt these noobs down & at the very least stop other innocents getting fooled like we have.
assume that they have only sold 100 GHD's at $ 200 per product, it doesnt take much working out that these foolios are making good hay & laughing at us.
I'm in Christchurch as well.
Britta, i didn't find the Quona Ave place on google (was it 19a - see post on page 2 of thread) but when i looked up the whois for savingmall.co.nz, (http://www.dnc.org.nz/whois.php) the address is 3 Catton Cres, which appears in this real estate page:
Anyone noticing a pattern?
So far the mobile phone number and bank account details are all the reliable information we have?
found ownership details on public record for 19 quona, but looks like a landlord, no record of 19a quona though.
