    The owner hasnt responded to any threads in the forum for the past 2 days. Today, he/she disabled the entire forum... I still haven't got any reply(Email) from him/her about my order.

    Was it a scam after all?

    edit: The site is entirely down now...

    Everything on queue will be completed on or by Jan 10th.

    Please feel free to email us for any inquiries.

    Happy New Years!

    PeachDS is pretty reliable. I'm not sure what's going on but I recommend seeing if you can get your money back asap and reorder when things are up and running.

    The forums keep going out and in everyday and go to some new URL, so I doubt they disabled them entirely (out of recent events?). The people replying to e-mail is probably swamped, all resellers are having issues because of stock right now, give it time. Also, they didn't charge the card yet (at least for me).

    Did you receive a tracking number?

    Is anyone else about to cancel their order from peachDS?

    I just got a response from PeachDS. They are just swamped.

    They stopped taking backorder/preorders and are waiting to get them in stock before putting them back on sale.

    Everyone did according to one reseller all of the Sky cards got caught in customs so that made an even bigger delay.

    Peachds is pretty reliable. I got my sky yesterday from them without a problem. They are just having the same problem every other reseller is having.

    The forums isn't his place of responsibility, I'm sure they have a sales email address.

    edit: aaah, THERE forum. Why a sales website have a forum I have no clue.

    You do realize spoofee.com is a sponsor right? All of there shipments come with a pretty little whale card with that website on it.

    It's still weird that suddenly it redirects to it though.

    They probably piggyback the site for hosting there own site.

    Oh yeah, that would make sense. Considering the numerous hosting issues before (including the forums disappearing from time to time).
