AdultDVDsite.co.uk — Bogus Company - Avoid!
I ordered and paid for a DVD product from their website on the 27th March 2009. They charged my card 3 days later & the site seemed professional and genuine (I saw they had a contact number listed so it gave me the peace of mind to order from them).
However, this phone number is simply a message minder which they do not return calls from. I sent countless emails to the address listed as 'support' & only received one response. They stated that their delivery was late and that the DVD would be dispatched next week. It was clear it was a generic response and they have yet to respond to any of my follow up emails as of 18th May 2009.
The MD of the company is a businessman named Dieter Grolimund based in Trimbach in Switzerland.
The other two shareholders are Andrew Cosgrove & Denis Kelly (both from UK).
I have looked into this company & the details I have are below:
Hostway.co.uk hosts the 3 domains this company uses - adultdvdsite.co.uk, adultdvdsite.com.au & adultdvdsite.co.za
The sites are probably hosted from the USA.
The company, ADS Digital GMBH, is based in Switzerland.
All 3 sites are bogus and have been actively ripping off consumers since 2003. Internet research has unfortunately revealed this.
It is the nature of the adult material that possibly encourages people to 'turn a blind eye', or 'cut their losses' as they may deem it to embarrassing to go to their credit card company etc. This I believe is the fuel keeping this rip-off company in business. They also use 'bait-advertising' on their site (hurry, sale ends in 5 hours etc - this sale is on every single day). They also list 99% of product as 'in-stock' and 'ships immediately'.
I don't particulary need or want a refund - I just want to let as many people I can know about this company.
