    The Norfolk hamper company thread 17th Oct 12 at 9:18 AM
    Thought I'd post this seperate to the other thread as it may get lost in there for people who might want this deal but not the other!

    I've previously ordered their 6 month deal and have been happy as have other MSE'ers, the owner is very helpful if you have any queries and want to ring him to clarify anything.

    http://www.thenorfolkhampercompany.co.uk/chocolate--sweet-hamper-deal-1299-p.asp

    The website states:

    you buy the Chocolate Hamper & the Retro Sweet hamper for only 50 & we will give you the same again FREE.So you will receive 4 Hampers in total.
    Each one will arrive in a 12" wicker hamper & contain

    Galaxy Hamper
    Galaxy Cookie Crumble Bar 71g
    Galaxy Smooth Milk Bar 125g
    Galaxy Bubbles Bar 100g
    Galaxy Orange & Shortcake Bar 197g
    Galaxy Cake Bars x 5
    Galaxy Bites 140g
    Galaxy Hot Drinking Chocolate 225g

    Retro Sweet Hamper
    This Hamper will be full to the top of all our old classics which we all use to run down to the corner shop for.This is a must for any sweet lover.

    I have recieved a letter from barclaycard saying they are crediting my account back for 144.99 temporarily. They have said that they are not responsible under section 75 as i paid through paypal. They have contacted the merchants bank on my behalf and if they do not respond they can't get involved????????? They reserve the right to charge me back if they get no response from the seller?? Doesn't really make sense?? Has any one else had this?

    It looks like this thread is beginning to wind down now, so I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has supported mse'rs like myself who were sucked in by this whole sorry saga. I'm sorry everything has ended the way it has and many of us not only are out of pocket but have endured several stressful weeks/months because of this company.

    I and countless others may have lost money after being swindled by you Mr Alvey, you may have gotten away with it this time BUT don't for one second think you will be able to let this blow over for a couple of months and then start afresh with your "offers" and "promises" in a new business venture. I will be watching for your name and will be more than happy to share my experiences of being one of your customers. I sincerely hope Karma catches up with you one day soon.

    must just add I was highly disappointed in MSE stance in this fiasco maybe i missed it, but we didn't seem to get a lot of help from anyone up higher on here (and i do believe the thread was sent to the boss !!) and i would have thought given the way this saga ran and ran someone would have been able to offer a bit more then they did but hey -ho x

    Good luck anyone still fighting to get there money back from CC company's / paypal etc

    Have finally gotten my bottom in gear, and have printed out all the evidence to send to Santander along with my Visa chargeback letter, which is now written. Will post it tomorrow and await the response! If I still get a no, then won't know what to do next as it's the principle now. What's the point of having a chargeback scheme if it's at the bank's discretion? Thanks for everyone's help.

    Well I am pleased to say that following my Visa Debit Chargeback claim I was contacted by HSBC today and I should receive the funds in 24-48 hours.

    I had paid via Paypal using my debit card, outside the 45 day window to claim from Paypal. So while this whole debacle was a massive PITA, at least for me I am no longer out of pocket. I hope many more of you will be successful pursuing your claims. Good luck.

They have said that when Neil(l) notified us that the he had ceased trading they seized documents in order to investigate, from this they are now looking to take criminal action and need all thoses effected to supply details of issued they have had, if refunds have been rec'd etc etc...
    They sent the form as a PDF, so an't post a link but if anyone wants a copy to fill in and send off PM me with your email and I'll send a copy over...
    Looks as though he may not get away with it after all!!!!!
