Grey imports aside, I've now made two purchases with nothing but high-praise for the team at Procamerashop.co.uk. Why can't other British retailers transact business in this way? (Take note Oakea.co.uk and De cuisine)
John Ritchie found this review useful
Glowingly described its furniture as 'Solid Oak' when parts of it are veneer covered chipboard/paperboard. Correspondence was exchanged in which Oakea's MD (Henrik Pontoppidan) made reference to my 'negative perception' of the bookcase in question (I should say so) as he tried, without success, to justify the use of chipboard in this way. On 11 August it was seen that significant corrections were underway on Oakea's website (no doubt after seeking legal advice) to qualify the use of the term 'solid oak'. This post should at least ensure that future customers are not taken in as we were, when we thought were were buying a solid oak product. I would add that there 'wood' have been no problem for me if Oakea of Hereford had mentioned the use of chipboard in their advertising as I 'wood' simply have gone elsewhere for to buy a real oak one.
De Quisine are MINUS five-star scammers - akin to the worst of 1980s time-share salesmen, and for all I know, they may well be ex-time-share salesmen, as this particular species of low-life all seem to have undergone a successful conscience removal procedure. Now that so many of them have been chased off the Spanish costas, a few will undoubtedly have slipped conveniently back into the UK and a couple of them now appear to be running pseudo businesses with a legit looking web presence. Two such bums now appear to be running De Quisine in Dorsetshire, England. If they suck you in, you'll quickly and innocently part with your money and possibly even receive a portion of your online order (if you are lucky) leaving them with a much greater profit, smirkingly confident that neither you nor the UK law will be able to touch them. If you are fortunate enough to make contact with the brothers grim by telephone, you'll be plausibly informed, as we were, that the outstanding items are currently out of stock. This is a complete lie, sorry, fabrication, because they will never send you the balance of your paid order. If however (like we did) you then go to somewhere like Amazon.co.uk you'll almost certainly receive said items the next day, proving that De Qusine's excuses about stock non-availability are, yes, a complete and inveterate lie. Avoid De Quisine like the plague. If Bristish law was good for anything they'd now be languishing in HMP Horfield, but filing reports with Trading Standards and Consumer Direct and Dorset Constabulary et al is about as useful as asking Gordon Brown to hold a referendum on the EU! I could be more direct about it all but this will have to do for now, in the vain hope that it may reduce the number of good people who are about to be ripped off by the brothers grim.
