Ultimate Digital Source, Inc. / Never Received Blu-ray player
After doing much research on Blu-ray players on the internet, I chose to do business with ultimatedigitalsource.com to purchase a Samsung BD-P2500 Blu-ray player. They have another web site that is named Techcyberstore.com that is set up exactly like ultimatedigitalsource.com and from what I can tell, they operate exactly the same. The only difference is their mailing location.
They require you to purchase a Green Dot MoneyPak card at several retailers in the denomination of your purchase and send them the activation code. After they process everything they will send you the tracking number of your purchase.
The next day I didn’t hear anything so I sent them an email asking about the status of the purchase. An hour or so later I received this email: Thank you for shopping with us, your order will be ship out Thursday morning and you will receive shipping confirmation email with UPS tracking number within 24hr after your order is ship. The funny thing was, it was Thursday so I decided to see if they would follow through. As of 2/2/09 I still have not heard anything even after sending them 2 additional emails.
When you try to contact them by phone it always goes to voice mail and none of my messages have been returned. I have contacted Yahoo! Merchant services but was told they do not have any control over web sites that use their services. They did say they would send an email to them and for me to contact them if I do not hear anything within the next 24 hours. Yahoo shopping finally got back to me on 2/2/09 saying this web site is a valid Yahoo store which kind of helps but unless they deliver soon I am considering it a scam.
