    Hurrah! That guy sucked ass. As well as placing false info about something I bought a while ago and then changed it AFTER I complained. He also discriminated someone because they were Israeli saying "it is company policy not to support people whos government kill innocent civilians and children".

    The guy was a total dick and his store and user support was astonishingly poor. Won't be sad to see the back of Mr.Modchips

    Discriminating Israelis??? Well if someone doesn't want my money then he wouldn't get it [​IMG]
    Though I've never encountered anything like that in person, I must admit that I normally buy stuff from the Far East or the US because it's cheaper and there are far less chances of encountering such discrimination.
    Once again it's evident that stupidity can put people in serious trouble...

    I fount it to be quite hypocritical that the guy is British but says "it is company policy not to support people whos government kill innocent civilians and children".

    What the fuck has our government been doing in Iraq? Sure it wasn't intentional but they knew it would happen so its still pretty much the same to me. [​IMG]

    EDIT: Sorry for getting political. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I'd heard some bad rep from him when I was back at the DS-X forums, because by their statements it seems to me like he was racist, a scammer and fake.

    THANK GOD, he doesn't sell to israelis [​IMG]
    Which means - we were unrippable by this guy.
    Uexboxmods weren't as good anyway, guess he desrves it.
    It's hard to find a good shop over the net.

    I got one of the X3IR receivers a while back from him. Advertised with a USB programmer on it. Turned out it was the old serial based one. When I emailed him about it, he said it comes with the usb programmer as well. What a load of lies. Hopefully now he is finished. Knowing how easy it is to open a business in the UK. He'll probably change the name of the company and name his wife as company director [​IMG]

    I did notice as well on the website. It was one of the few websites that never had a cancel this item button.

    I fucking hate this guy. I bought a Tri-wing screwdriver and a Top screen NDS LCD screen off this site. Long story short: I got scammed out of £40 ($80)

    Yeah you may be thinking "big wow only £40 ($80)" but since I'm a student thats a lot of money.


    Fucking bastard i hope he drops the soap in the showers then he rots to death.

    this guy sounds like a scammer from various posts I read on here. I haven't been scammed by anyone dealing with this sort of stuff, luckily I know where to get the good deals and right products. I have ordered from a couple iffy places before but it worked out fine and I got '''''genuine'''' products. (I add a lot of quotes because nothing is genuine in this game if you think about it LOL)
