I think it sucks that people are kicking him when he's down. I've spent plenty of money with him with no problems at all, fair enough if you don't want to risk spending your money with him at the mo but lets remember, he's not some faceless internet fraudster, he's one of us.

Martin's managed to save us (correction you lot) a lot of money using loopholes in the VAT laws, I don't know anyone else who would do that. Same as every other mail order company, you're responsible for your country's taxes and duties, if you get caught out it's your tough titties, don't blame him.

I think that I need to clarify one thing.

I could have got the goods at the same price or below in the UK from some of the better known intent retailers. I chose to give the business to who I gave the business to in order to do exactly that, give him the business!

I knew I was taking a risk over VAT but hoped that my (significant) purchase would help them build the business.

I did not go to the lowest bidder.

I have used Martin on several occasions in the past. all sales went through well. There was one or two problems which he rectified quickly. I found him to be very good to deal with

I'd just like to clarify that I wasn't referring to you or anyone else in particular. They say you can't please everyone all the time, unfortunately you were one of the unlucky ones I guess.

WEll, if your definition of 'unlucky' is standing to loose 800, then, yes, unlucky!

How much of a prat to I feel right now

After sticking up for Martin when he took JABS for a ride, he's just gone and shafted me for over 400 for stuff I ordered through him

I put a roof over his head whenever he visited Jersey and put all the business I could his way and that's what I get in return. Nice.

Hi Martini,

So sorry to hear this. I had hoped that all was back on a sensible footing. I think I gave him every chance to get sorted and either ditch the business or continue and behave in an ethical way.

I am very upset by this and regret not naming.

At least his identity is out now!

Well I was a little upset with his underhand, dishonest, low morals, cheating, lying, pikey, thieving, back stabbing, snake like, untruthful, bluffing, bullshit, misleading, unreliable, unethical, deceptive, misleading, two timing, 2-faced, deceptive, treacherous, misleading, misrepresenting, inventing, deceitful, double crossing, falsifying ways of doing business.

We can all mess up now and again (and like many I have done) but his complete inability to fix the problem, coupled with his snake like tendency to tell lies is a very bad sign. Couple this with the huge number of forum members that have suffered at his hand and I wonder why anyone still attempts to do business with the trickster.

He is of course not the first foruM Member to try and rip off Multiple other Members and get away with it. I have chains of PMs and eMails from both and their victims, to ensure I never forget these scumbags.
