More than hangers ARE sold here!

AdvantagesSee text.

DisadvantagesSee text.

"Following a massive influx of people writing reviews on this website, I would just like to write a short review on it myself. Thinking that all they sold were hangers, I was amazed to find out that they do actually in fact also sell loads more different things! However, please do forgive me as all that I shall be writing about is the actual website – not having made any attempts to buy anything from it, all I wish to do is to at least put people's ..."

VIA TV - Don't Buy!!!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesToo many to list here!

"Do not, under any circumstances, buy anything from this 'business'. Ordered (and paid for) an item and a week or so later received email saying the goods were delayed in a container somewhere. Smelt a rat so cancelled, as was an option at that point. Received cancellation email with promise that money would be credited back within 7 days (even though I paid through paypal as an instant payment). Following non-receipt of refund tried continually to ..." Read review

VIA TV DO NOT BUY

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesTOO MANY

"DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS WEBSITE! This site is a con, I made the mistake of purchasing an item I thought to be cheaper on this site which it was as they never ever send you your goods. I tried emailing only to receive one email from the owner Mr Piyush Patel that goods were out of stock and I am on a priority waiting list. I phoned the office to say I didn't want to be but nobody ever picks up no matter which department you try. I tried emailing ..." Read review

This company sells fake items!

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagesnot what is advertised

"Trading standards really need to shut this company down! Looking at reviews it seems that my experience is not a one off. I ordered at Gyform vibromax at a cost of £399 and was told delivery would be 7 days - 5 weeks later and constant chasing and promises it finally arrived. However what was received was a Crazy fit model, totally different and worth less than £200. It got to the point where I had to get my solicitor involved before they would finally ..." Read review

VIA TV - AKA CON ARTISTS

AdvantagesNone at all - promises of offers too good to be true!

DisadvantagesNo stock, No delivery, No communication - THE COMPANY!

"I would definately NOT recommend this company to ANYBODY! Products seem cheap to buy and very good offers but they are absolutely rubbish with communication (they send group emails out instead of personal ones). I have never found a more USELESS company than VIA TV. I ordered over 7 weeks ago and still not received my goods. I was told it wasn't in stock before ordering but have had a few emails since saying they would be with me shortly. I have ..." Read review

VIA TV Products

AdvantagesThere are none.

DisadvantagesThey will cheat you.

"Fraudulent company or small business. Don't touch them with a bargepole. They take your money and don't send out your order. There is no way of contacting anyone as all you get is an answerphone when you ring, saying that products have been sent out Saturday or Monday. This is obviously an attempt to delay you as the products never come. It is now two months since my order. I will try to get my money back through Paypal complaints as that is how I ..." Read review

Quick review of via-tv.co.uk

"I just want to say that I did actually receive the product, and quite quickly but it is not a company I would deal with again. First the product was missing an item, value £17, and all they offered was free postage on a future purchase. They still have the misleading advert online. Then I discovered they had taken £10 more than they agreed from my credit card through paypal. Now they won't respond to emails or phonecalls (while they are being paid part of 0871 phone call rate.) How can the managing director give himself a 5 star rating?

"After ordering the goods, I read the reviews and I thought..... what have I done?. I had to give them a chance and was patient. I received three different e-mails informing why the goods were late. I never contacted them... I waited. As I live in Spain and they had just started on this area, I thought it logical they would have some logistic problems. Eventually the goods arrived and I was happy and relieved!!!! I ordered on the 23rd August and they delivered on the7th October. I gathered that if you are prepared to wait, the goods will arrive. I paid much less for the goods than what other companies charge... worth the wait? I think so.

Quick review of via-tv.co.uk

"AWFUL! Quick to take a payment from you, slow to process your order, even slower to tell you they don't actually have the goods then no signs of getting your money back! Ordered from them a month ago now and after two delays due to a late shipment (HM customs and excise blamed) was told that goods would not be delivered and i would be refunded. This refund was ment to take five working days. It has now been a fortnight. They never answer any phones (even on their order line) and do not respond to email. Currently going through trading standards to try to re coup my money. DO NOT USE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!!!!!!!

"I CAN ONLY RE-ITERATE OTHERS EXPERINCE DO NOT BUY.. This company is a rogue outfit that delivered my goods very late, sent me irrelavant e-mails about goods I hadn't ordered, did not respond to my e-mails once I had received the poorly refurbished goods. I have written to the MD who gave his compant a 5* rating on this website - No response. My credit card company has said they won't help claiming their help is 'timebound' and I will now have to fight for my money via the small claims court.. If their MD - Mr A Patel is reading this he should be ashamed of his company but then if he is raking the money in from his punters he probably doesn't care.

Quick review of via-tv.co.uk

"I purchased an item (and paid with Paypal) and was not too bothered if it was slow to deliver. After 1 week I got an e-mail saying that the container had been delayed. The next week I received another one saying it was still delayed and they now believed the goods they were expecting may be counterfeit, and would begin processing refunds over the next week, but it may take 5-7 days to appear in your bank. I e-mailed them and explained I paid with Paypal (immediate transfer) and so wanted the refund the same. I received a reply saying it would be actioned the next day - it wasn't. I haven't been refunded, and I'm waiting for a Paypal dispute to be progressed. BUYER BEWARE!!!

"You are a thieving conman end of story. July 16th I made my original order, despite multiple attempts at getting a response out of you, I have recieved nothing. Simple, do not buy anything from this bogus thief. The few good reviews are left by this weirdo and his fellow cronies. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!! Sadly trading standards have proven an utterly toothless organisation in this particular case. They seem content to let this parasite continue his dirty activities. Apparently grand larceny over the internet is perfectly acceptable in this country. (just don't do it on the streets)

"I bought and paid for a steam iron 7 weeks ago and have still not recived it. I have had the same excuses as everyone else ie " trouble with suppliers" etc. Fortunatly i paid by credit card and am able to get a refund and i have reported them to the trading standards. Does anyone know how we stand to report the matter to the police as i believe that this company are deliberately committing an act of theft and/or fraud?. Ken McGuire Huddersfield

"VIA TV--- THIEVES . DO NOT BUY !!!! Placed my order on the 6th July 2008 . Recieved a reply a few days later saying goods delayed at customs . Then recieved a further e-mail a week later saying the goods were suspected counterfeit and a refund would be sent . Contacted VIA TV by phone repeatedly but no reply , sent loads of e-mails but no reply again. Then I read the reviews on CIAO and realised I had been conned ! Trading Standards(08454040506) are now on the case and I am very angry that these thieves are still being allowed to trade . Please DONT BUY FROM VIA TV , PLEASE CONTACT YOUR LOCAL TRADING STANDARDS, PLEASE COMPLAIN ABOUT THIS FRAUDULENT COMPANY .
