Takealot / false advertising

1 South Africa Review updated:

I made the order for the Chromecast 4k (Paid R1, 549.00) 6 days ago and was told that It would be delivered on the 22nd October.
I received an email today from Takealot that the product is no longer available from the supplier (PC Mart) to then go 2 minutes later and check online to say that same device is available but that is now more expensive (R1, 750.00) and the supplier is someone else! (Nantec - Fulfilled by Takealot)
This is absolutely unacceptable and this service is appalling. COMPLETE FALSE ADVERTISING
I am not happy about this!

    I have a similar issue. Have you had any luck? I also have been reading up on several of the same fraudulent situation from other customers and it seems Takealot are just getting away with it? If they were following the Consumer law rules like Amazon does we would not have been sitting in this boat. I have been done in with R4000
