Scope City closed? new
      #5614290 - 01/09/13 06:56 PM

Is www.scopecity.com closed? I ordered and paid for gear last year. Scopecity does not answer my emails. Their 1-800 number is disconnected. I have called their stores in SFO (disconnected) and LAX (voice-mail box are full). I have tried several times over the past week.

Start a claim now.

They never responded to my emails or calls. The paypal claim process recovered all of my funds.

I was going to order from them today and called to verify item in stock. 800 number disconnected 805 number got filled voicemail message. Found message on web from someone that said employees had not been paid. Doesn't sound good.

I ordered from them last July,2012 and even talked to them about my order in Sept., and again the last of Oct., guess i should have asked for a refund then. Was told my order would be sent as soon as the item came in to their store. Now i guess i have lost my money since paypal has a 45 day time limit. Lesson learned.

Give it a try... I know that Paypal will address situations that have gone beyond the time limit if they feel it is warranted.

I have started a claim with PayPal.

I am surprised their web site is still working.

Thanks to all for confirming my suspicions that ScopeCity has closed. Too bad. Another vendor down the tube.

It is too bad, but why are they still taking people's money?

Interesting. I note that the copyright notice at the bottom of the website has even been updated to 2013. I suppose, like starting a website, it takes a litte while for the website developer/maintainer to get the message. The message will likely be clearer when he/she doesn't get paid.

Tks jon,, I did contact paypal and they are going to try and get my money back. The agent i talked to said that scope city would probably be clasified as a habitual offender. To bad this happened.

If they're not closed, there's been enough threads on them here that they should take the time to make a statement as to their status...unless they're completely closed of course, but then, the old owners should have at least notified its major suppliers/customers.

That vendor's ISP is "hostmysite" which is a commercial service provider who charges $50/month for an ecommerce site. So someone is either still paying the ISP or already prepaid, that site should've been removed .
