You can find similar stories of the #instockfraud by PG in many places on the web.
I ordered the Samsung Galaxy 3 from Purely Gadgets via Tesco website. PG claimed SG3 is in stock and delivery in 2-5 days. 2 weeks later the order status is still "processing". The stock status is a lie (told none available by PG on phone) and that seems fraudulent to me. From other reviews it seems this is common practice at PG. And they are still showing SG3 in stock despite telling me different by phone.
They also say "Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Buy From US: ... In stock means in stock, and quick trackable delivery." That statement together with phone advice from PG that SG3 is still not available seems to me to be evidence of intent to deceive.
I've had several conflicting updates from PG on when I will get my SG3 but I'm still waiting.
I was told that they would change the stock status for SG3, but a week later and it is still showing "in stock". They just seem to say what customer wants to hear and then do something different.
Even the phone support system lies - told me wait is less than one minute and then kept me for 15 mins before I hung up. And I was later told by phone support that I would be called by their management to explain - that never happened.
It all seems like a litany of lies from Purely Gadgets, so I would recommend you find a reputable vendor for spending your gadget cash.
