WAE+ Scam Company with Scam Reviews - Please Read

I searched Google for computer parts using their "Shopping" tab. The cheapest online store was returned as WAE+. They were almost 40% cheaper and their website looked very professional and stated that it was secure.

1) Account created on 27th May 2013 @ 11:07.
2) Order made via Bank Transfer (do not do this!) 27th May 2013
3) Received notification of shipment on 11th June 2013 via email
4) Rang WAE+ and after a long wait managed to confirm that I'd not received anything a week later. Promised return call but nothing ensued.
5) Now receive a new notification email stating, "The status of order ####-###-#### is now Awaiting Fulfillment". Fulfillment? How? Apparently it's already been shipped? "Click here to view the status of your order", now shows as, "Shipped" with a UPS Tracking hyperlink. I click on the link and it takes me to the UPS site and I enter 1Z5368926894151254 Now it says, "A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status--including the scheduled delivery date--will be updated." So they printed the label but what else?
6) Unable to reach anyone at WAE+ during multiple attempts over three days.
7) Rang UPS and gave them the tracking number, They confirmed that WAE+ printed the label but DID NOT SEND THEM THE ITEM. I raised the alarm with UPS and they are going to suspend their orders. Also the package weight as listed by the ticket states 7kg and I ordered 3 small items weighing less than 500g in total.

I would advise anyone considering buying from WAE+ to search the internet for reviews. Their previous company was called "We Are Electricals" which went bust with over 40 CCJ's. The same company directors are in place in WAE+

Also have a look here if you are still not convinced:

I have written to Watch Dog, and am obtaining the names and addresses of the Directors from Webcheck at Companies House. I've only lost a little but it's everything to do with principle and in this day and age it is not acceptable.

Here's an article from the Guardian about WAE+:

Finally, it was disclosed that WAE+ actually employs people to give positive ratings to rating sites like these. I hope this info was useful to anyone considering buying from WEA+.
