Complete rip off merchants. Maydek Home Improvements

Business name: 
Maydek Home Improvements

Complete rip off merchants, not least the MD, who uses reassuring and promising language to entice you into a false sense of security and to part with your cash. Once you've fully paid the delivery, fitting, product are a shambles and there is no after sales service at all. We spent a substantial amount of money and have definitely NOT received value for money. Be wary of lies - fitting is outsourced and MD takes no responsibility or cares about completion of the job.

Traditional Pub Breaks - but no room at the Inn! (gift ideas for two)

Business name: 
gift ideas for two

I have just had a most upsetting experience at the hands of 'Gift Ideas For Two'. To save others from a similar experience, let me share it with you.

Last Christmas (2013), my wife bought me a 'Traditional Inns & Pubs Break' from 'Gift Ideas For Two'. She paid £79 for the gift which entitles us to one night's free board (excluding all meals) in selected pubs and inns around the UK.

SCAM COMPANY - AVOID! // UK Wholesale (DJ2GO)

Business name: 
UK Wholesale - DJ2GO Ltd

This is a terrible company to deal with, they take the money out of your account immediately, then do nothing. 

I've been waiting 10 days now for an order to be posted out and the status of my order still says 'in progress'. 

Emails are not answered and they don't answer the phone either. My experience seems typical of what other

people have experienced. Avoid this company at all costs, they are nothing but a bunch of rogues.

DrinksDirect.co.uk Limited

Stay away from these Chumps

Made an innocent enough looking purpose for 4 Bottles of Youngs Double Chocolate Stout.

Started off a really decent price until they added VAT and 6 quid for Delivery I was tired last night so took payment of these.

Upon receiving my Invoice I have called to query their pricing as 4 bottles for £17.45 is

Ridiculous! So anyway I called them and have been hung up on 5 times told first time I can cancel on the phone.

Mr Josh Faulkner! Beware of this amateur!!! Takes your money and doesn't provide goods. Initially this seemed like a good local studio.

Daily Poppins UK Maidenhead, it is outrageous and shameful to work as

Business name: 
Daily Poppins
My partner and me have been extremly disapointed, when we came to our apartment on saturday to prepare it for the check out, by the job done for the expected "professional cleaning".  I think it is outrageous to pay such an amount for a so poor work.  All the job done should take maximum half an hour for 1 not professional person.

Hayaam Bellydance Rip-off (RESPONSE RECEIVED)

Business name: 
Hayaam Academy of Contemporary Bellydance

First of all Academy consists of one person only. Also poor tuition level. Not as advertised.  I notified a teacher by e-mail that I will not continue ( course started in January) and asked  to return my money for 11 hours lessons I won't attend.  I got the reply that I will get refund for 3 hours only. On my other e-mails enquiring about the rest of the hours I didn't receive any reply.  Eventually I received 3 hours refund after one week. Out of goodwill I guess. Each class is 9 pounds.

Morton Windows & Conservatories Ltd - Misrepresentation & Breach of Contract (Double Glazing)

Business name: 
Morton Windows & Conservatories Ltd (Norfolk) (RESPONSE RECEIVED)

In August 2013 I made the mistake of signing a contract for replacement windows & French doors with this company.  The salesman in the showroom, said I could have the locking mechanism I wanted, the handles I wanted and the profile/style of windows I wanted.  You would expect to get what you wanted when buying something for £6k wouldn't you?  The salesman knocked the price down from the initial quotation, and said 'as it was the end of the month' and he could bring down the price a bit mo
