Datakits.co.uk - Absolute fraudstersI bought two of the same type of memory cards from them, specifically 2 x 16GB, Class 6, SDHC cards.
Class 6 refers to the read/write speed of the card, class 6 gaurantees a minimum of 10mb/s read/write. My device won't work with slower cards.
Got email on order day itself saying order will be dispatched within two working days if not delays will be notified by email.
Gave it a week, no order, no follow up email about delays.
Sent email enquiring whereabouts of item. No response. Tried telephone number. Number not in use.
Did google search with horrifying results. Informed Portsmouth Trading Standards and notified my bank to begin chargeback procedures. Emailed data kits again, with a strong worded letter. No response.
Items arrived 10 days after order. However, items were not in original packaging nor sealed. Further inspection shows the memory cards to have been rebranded from SanDisk cards with a handwritten label.
Discovered a serial number on the memory cards and called SanDisk directly, and asked them about the properties of each card. Both were 16Gb, but despite label claiming class 6, both were class 2.
Emailed company again asking for returns authorisation number. No response.
Have sent strongly worded email with proof of treachery to datakits cc'd to portsmouth trading standards claiming my rights under the Sale of Goods Act 1979 to reject goods not as described, not fit for purpose and not of satisfactory quality.
Am willing to follow this up as far as I need to go to get this sorted.
