    Little Divaz / Grumpy but Gorgeous / Parcel Delivery Crete 28th Dec 17 at 7:57 PM
    Hi All,

    The first two companies are well known to most regulars from their epic scams dating back since 2010. The newest incarnation is Parcel Delivery Crete which has also done the same to heaps of consumers both in the UK and crete. If you search FB for Parcel Delivery Crete Scam you will soon be updated as to the new exploits by the director of the same companies mentioned above. I am not mentioning their name here because they managed to get the threads closed.

    I am here asking any of those that were affected by Little Divaz, Grumpy But Gorgeous or Parcel Delivery Crete to send me a PM regarding their losses so a class report can be made to the authorities. A conservative estimate I would say is nigh on anywhere between 500k plus has been taken under false pretences maybe double that.

    I hope MSE will allow and leave this as it is in the consumer interest.

    Hi
    I have been scammed by this company over Christmas and lost about 350. I even went to where they lived and they had done a runner from there rented accommodation. I have a list of emails where they have promised to take the parcel but have not to date delivered nothing. BEWARE of this company !!!128545;!!!128545;!!!128545;!!!128545;!!!128545;

    My ex-husband and someone he got to know both drove for Parcel Delivery Crete. They had to pay for fuel and toll roads themselves, plus their own accommodation even though PDC booked the hotels (but, it transpired, hadn't paid for them). When receipts were submitted, they disputed everything and have paid nothing, not even the agreed wages. My ex-husband is owed over 1,000 and the other person over 2,000.

    On one journey their van was impounded as it was neither taxed nor insured. They have failed to collect items, have transported animals despite having no licence, and failed to deliver a dog on another occasion. They organised a wedding in Crete, and have not paid the musicians or caterers. These are just the cases that I am aware of.

    When challenged, they threaten both legal and physical ramifications. Last I knew, they were living in Anopolis, near Water City, which was around October time.

    This is their latest venture - please spread the word. They've stolen the photos from a genuine company in Chorley.

    Yep this is the latest company that has been set up to rip you off - I fell foul at beginning of May, paid 200+ for a party and they never turned up, promised refund, never got it!. Just hoping these people will get caught soon, they are making a living out of destroying kids birthdays, the lowest of the low!

    See also:
    have just been scammed by this company too. She did deliver the good for the party however she did not come and collect them for two days. When she eventually decided to collect them
    She asked me to leave them all outside, despite me saying that I would be out all day and that they would
    Be unattended. She has now accused me of breaking all the teepees and sent me a 200
    Bill. When I refused to pay she has filled with the small
    Claims court and is taking me to court for 200 plus interest.
    It is only now that I have found out that she has scammed many other.
