Quote:Oh brilliant... just trying to recover my money with Paypal, but because it's gone past 45 days they won't allow me to dispute it. The problem is when dealing with the US (I'm in the UK), things can quite feasibly take more than 6 weeks to arrive, so that is an annoying system Paypal have there. It's concerning that their could still be people going onto that website and placing and payign for orders. It looks like i've lost my $90. :'(

Quote:Another good reason to H8 paypal, and avoid them when possible.
Quote: I placed for and paid for my order at the end of July '12. So far I've had nothing to say it's been dispatched.
Quote:This site looks genuine enough but I can't get replies from them via the contact us form, the email address nor their phone number?
Quote:Scope City was certainly a company at one point. I visited their San Francisco store when I was visiting out there. Looks to me like it's fallen apart. Stores have closed and they are not running a good online business. Interesting for sure. I had visited their site a few times when I was looking for stuff. Glad I didn't purchase anything. We'll see if they come back or not, but this won't help them.
