    I bought a magic bullet blender online. Thought there was something a bit odd when I received the confirmation email as it had a grammatical error in it (wrong word actually). I paid for it on 5 June via something called nochex (that was the only way they would accept payment) but using a credit card.

    Emailed today as I hadn't received it. No reply. Just typed their website address in and there is no website at that address (www.oyeshop.co.uk).

    Anyone know if I can do anything about it?


    ....... just did a google search for oye shop and nochex ... results come up but clicking on them all lead to domain name page. I guess they got loads of money from fools like me and closed down the site

    Sorry to hear this Dancing, I dont know how you would go about reporting it but I would definitely not let it go, and dont let it put you off getting the magic bullet it is fantastic!

    Actually I got mine in my local supermarket under the name amazing bullet, but exactly the same as advertised on TV infomercials.

    Firstly, did you let your credit card company know you have been charged fraudulently? It would be a good idea to contact them. After that I am not honestly sure where you should go, Citizens Advice perhaps?

    Sorry to hear about this, but its not your fault. There are so many fraudsters out there.....

    You can't report the website.

    You can contact your credit card company and obtain a refund for the purchase.

    Also contact Nochex (which AFAIK is legitimate as I have had an account with them for about 4 years)

    HI Dancing - the domain is registered to a company called Bluefold Ltd. A google search on that name brought up this page;

    BLUEFOLD LIMITED - BLUEFOLD LTD-OYE

    Sounds like you're not the only one. I would report it to your Bank (credit card) and also Trading Standards.

    *******s!

    If you've paid by Credit not Debit card you should get a refund from your card company.

    Nochex is a real company if you follow this link Nochex Shopper Support it tells you what to do if you've paid for goods through the system and things have gone wrong.

    Hope this helps
