Scam! Avoid!

I wish I had read these reviews before buying from remote-island.co.uk They are obviously a total scam: they have not replied to my emails and I haven't had a wiff of my order since Feb. I have now started proceedings against them with the help of my credit card company.

Fake products, terrible customer service

This company is a total rip off and should be shut down. The plane they advertised was not what they sent me. What they sent me was a cheap piece of rubbish. When I asked for a refund in line with my statutory rights they refused and became aggressive. This company has gone out of business at least once and reopened the following day. Avoid, it's a scam.

COMPLETELY ILLEGAL PRACTICES

This company will rip you off and they make sure they do the very best they can to avoid the consequences. There is no phone number to contact them on and they make their trading address difficult to understand.

Remote Island, if you read this, make sure you understand that people like you do not succeed in British society, where the majority of people are decent and honest. You have no place in business or in this country.

Mr campbell

I ordered one orange lamborghini and I was sent a black lamborgini, the black model is a different one as ordere,

I have had no responce from them in over a day and a half, I will not be paying for the wrong model to be resent, A courier can be arranged or a cheque posted to me in advance may suffice, I will not be out of pocket at any stage of this wrong order. www.remote-island.co.uk Confirmation Email for order ref: RC10812165‏

Awful Company. Buy elsewhere

This company shipped me the wrong item, and then expected me to pay to return it, and then pay shipping on the correct item. I've never had such bad service before. I really really advise you to shop elsewhere.

I have included the email chain below to show you how I was treated:

Hi Jason,

You are most welcome to return the model back to us we would not pay for shipping and would need to charge again to ship another model.

Thank You.

Hi there,

Regarding Invoice RC9966046.

Unfortunately you've sent me two on the same frequency so now I'll need to return one. Despite what was said below I have received 2 27 MHz units.

Will you pay for the shipping on the unit I return? I can post it on Friday.

If you'd like to discuss this please give me a call on 07584 393316

Thank you,
Jason

Hi Jason,

27 and 40. If you purchase two models by default we will send these on different frequencies.

Thank You.
