Quote:Quote:Another good reason to H8 paypal, and avoid them when possible. Paypal is a pretty solid company. They don't fit everyone needs for sure, but they are a pretty safe and secure way to buy something online. It's not paypals fault scopecity sucks. They simply hold part of the sellers funds in a reserve for 45 days. With the exception of international in this case, that's typically long enough to get a shipment without something going wrong. I'd never trust a money order with buying equipment online. That's WAY too scary for my blood.

Quote:If they are continuing to accept orders and payments, but not delivering anything and refusing refunds, you can file a complaint with the state's Attorney General (http://oag.ca.gov/consumers/general). It doesn't cost anything, and if there is fraud, the Attorney General's office will take them to court - you don't need to.However, if they simply fell on hard times, and went out of business after you placed an order, then there is probably not much you can do, and the States Attorney probably won't get involved.

Quote: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. :'( I am not sure if you have any recourse. Hopefully there is something you can do... The local Scope City closed down several months ago. Scope City Closes its doors Jon

What some may view as an argument I view as a different perspective.
