Default DOJO boutique ??? anyone

I am looking to buy a LCD television - Dojo boutique's website has great prices, however, its operational setup seems very secretive and I wonder if it is to good to be true ? Has anyone had any dealing with this company or heard any reports about them ?

It's a completely untrustworthy website which will steal your money and then attempt identity theft.

See this comment on Web of Trust for more details:

Default Dojo boutique

i WAS AT A POINT OF PAYING FOR A NETBOOK FROM THIS COMPANY, BUT WAS WEARY WHEN i READ ABOUT THE ADDRESS BEING OF ' ICELAND FOOD STORE ' IN BELFAST.
I ALSO SEARCHED THE ADDRESS AND GUESS WHAT- THIS IS THE ADDRESS OF 'ICELAND FOOD STORES' IN BELFAST.
I HAVE NOW CANCELLED MY ORDER, BUYERS BE AWARE OF THIS FAKE.
LIKE PEOPLE SAY- IF IT'S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE THEN IT OFTEN IS.
THANKYOU KINGCOAL FOR YOUR POST.

Do not buy anything from this web site. It is a scam. They steal your money and then claim before you can have the goods sent you have to send passport and other forms of identity.obviously they are not only content with stealing your money but they aslo want to steal your identity. Have nothing to do with dojo boutique.

Default DOJO Boutique - Fraud

I have the embarrassment to say I have been caught - I spent 85 on a fat free fryer and just received an email this evening asking for mypassport details and bank details before they delivered. What can anyone do about stopping this? I have contacted watchdog.

DON'T PAY!!!

Just been caught by this also, asked for my passport details yesterday and I have refused. Spoke to bank this am and they have cancelled the card, got to speak to the disputes team now to try and get refund. These are the things that they asked for!!

In order for us to protect our customers and co-workers and for security reasons we need to verify your identity for this order, please provide us with:

1) - TWO different non-expired, unaltered and clear copies from your Passport, Country ID Card, Driver's License...
2) - Any TWO copies of a recent proof of residence (bank statement, water bill, electricity bill, gas bill...) matching the address as registered in your profile
3) - A picture with you and your Passport or Country ID Card opened in your hands. Make sure that the photo will be high-resolution and clear, the picture must be taken close enough to show your face and data from the passport clearly.

I have just learned that I too have been scammed - to the tune of 464. I should have been suspicious when the only option to pay was by e vouchers. I feel stupid and embarrassed, not to mention pretty sick. There will be no chance of getting any money back as e vouchers are like cash. I too have been asked for proof of identity, that's when I knew for sure I'd been had.

I've emailed Watchdog, I realise there is nothing they can do for those of us who have been caught but hopefully they can put out a warning to others.

a valuable lesson, check out the site before you part with any money or credit details

I too have been taken, should have had delivery of my fridge today via DHL. Recieved Email last night asking for following info. The phone number they have given takes me to some farming company in Northern Ireland. I have sent them an email asking for my money back. I paid by UKeVocuher which is like cash, I am not expecting much to be honest. I to will inform Watchdog.
1) - TWO different non-expired, unaltered and clear copies from your Passport, Country ID Card, Driver's License...
2) - Any TWO copies of a recent proof of residence (bank statement, water bill, electricity bill, gas bill...) matching the address as registered in your profile
3) - A picture with you and your Passport or Country ID Card opened in your hands. Make sure that the photo will be high-resolution and clear, the picture must be taken close enough to show your face and data from the passport clearly.

Do not send any money to this company.

Wait 30 days and contact card issuer and proceed with dispute process.
I too got scammed for 180.00 for mobile phone. Luckily I did'nt send any proof of ID etc.
They said monies will be held 60 days then would issue a refund by cheque, as I cancelled as soon as they asked for bank details etc

Wait and see eh?

Default Fridge

I do have foolishly paid 68 for a fridge. Thankfully by Paypoint & have just today refused to give the identification details they asked for.
My concern is I found them via a price comparison site from a google search. Surely there are several points here, apart from buyer beware !

Firstly with all these reports surely SOME authority has taken action.
Secondly surely for continuing to list them the price comparison sites are legally culpable in some respect for assisting a fraud.

I will naturally inform the authorities although I doubt this will achieve anything.
Can I suggest EVERYONE posts on facebook, twitter what ever to stop others getting caught.
