Thumbs down fitzpatrick models uk warning

Its one of the worst rc shop that i have counter.
I have ordered a esc and motor from them at the 16th of Feb.
Until the first 5 days he was answering my e-mails. After that nothing.
Even that he told me that the esc was in stock when i finally manage to find him after 10 days on the phone ( he used to have telephone numbers on his site that i tried more than 20 times to call and manage to find only once ) he told me that he have send it that day
I asked for a tracking number and said that he will email to me but nothing .
3 days past after that and decided to call him again but he had removed his telephone numbers from the site.
Did not respond offcourse to my emails so i decided to start a dispute to paypal ( payment was throe paypal ) but even then he didnt respond to me or paypal.
Then after 4 days i started the dispute a changed it to a claim from paypal to have my money back ( order near 250 euros ) .
Again he didnt respond to paypal but 3 days ago he e-mail me that he didnt send them and if i want my money back from him to stop the dispute.
Offcourse i am not thinking to do a stupid thing like that . I was an idiot the first time i want be a second time .
If it was a serious shop it would responded to the e-mails ( mine and paypal ) but the guy who haves it is a scammer.
Also because the shop looks like its a reseller of racing-cars- uk ( haves in his site all the products that they have schumaher - speed passion even there logo ) i e-mail them to tell the that someone is doing bad to there business and warn them.

Not the first time I have heard of problems with "Fitzpatrick Models".

Also mentioned in a thread on oople.com

I hope you get your money back.

I've used Fitzpatrick models a few times, John's an honest bloke. I've raced with him a few times as well and he's good for offering help and advice. He's not out there to scam you.

I use Paypal alot at work and find that people open disputes willy-nilly without even contacting us as the seller.

If he were honest he wouldnt ask people to close their claims (which you cannot re-open once you do).

chris : maybe with you he was honest but with me and david he sucked .

And not only me and in another forum i found complains about him.
If he was honest he wouldn't say to me 2 times that he have shipped the goods and do nothing.
If he was honest he would reply to e-mails ( mine and paypal )
If he was honest he wouldn't remove his telephone number after i manage to contact him the first time.
If he was honest he wouldn't send the same e-mail the same day to me and david with the same excuse .
I hate scammers like that and i will try as possible in my hands to close his site so he will not scamm more people.

Mikky : yes thats the site.

Might be the fact you live in country and he doesn't want to risk getting his assed kicked for scamming someone who can find him easily.
