OK I sent in an order with Catapults UK for 2 bags of 6mm Ballbarings on the 8th of June and still waiting on them to get here .
I have sent 3 requests as to where the order is as it says on the site that it has been prossesed and never got a reply from them at all.
They took the money ok but are not replying to my requests.
So where do I go from here ? I cant find any phone number on there site to phone them so Im kinda stuck.
All I can say is to everyone on here if you are planning on getting a slingshot or ballbarings please steer clear of this site.
Realy wish I knew what to do next.

Sorry for the rant but thought it might be handy to let folks on here know about this bunch of Cowboys.

Cheers

Did you pay by credit card? If they're UK based (name implies they are) then you can get your money back if they've not fulfilled their part of the deal.

You could give your local trading standards a shout, if they can not help you themselves, they usually point you in the direction of someone who can.

Maybe try ringing one of these numbers listed to the registered owner of the website .? Can't hurt to try

Martin seems to be the name that pops up with reviews for catapults and other gadgets !

Hope it is of some help to you

For the next time I've used Bearing Options Ebay store (http://stores.ebay.co.uk/BEARING-OPTIONS/_i.html?LH_TitleDesc=1&_nkw=catapult&_sid=595943254&_trksid=p4634.c0.m322) a couple of times. Good prices and no bother.

The old faithful 'whois' search, many a rogue trader / scammer has been caught out by leaving info on domain registrations. If anyone needs to check a website or get a number for a business owner I'd start with a search on the Nominet site. This will usually get you all the domain registration details as per Basha's forensics above.
