    Hello

    I'm new to this forum but post on 675.net as well.

    Just wanted to warn everyone about a rogue web-site operating in the UK.

    http://www.moto-racing.co.uk

    Ripped me off recently for £68. Ordered parts, they took the money from my debit card and never delivered. They never answer the phone. I asked for a re-fund and was told a re-fund had been issued. Checked my bank statements and no re-fund ever issued.

    I've informed the police and trading standards but I don't suppose anything will happen. I'm not the first they've done this to either.

    F**kers

    Be warned.

    Welcome to the site, Jim. Please stay!! I'm sorry that you've had such a bad experience. Can you not get your money back from your card company?

    Would do but used a debit card rather than a credit card so no chance of recovering the cash. Had to cancel the card as well in case they tried to take any more cash. Thinking of putting a debt collector on to them just to make them uncomfortable. Figure the £68 is written off but its the principle of the matter for me and the fact they have done this to a lot more people and their website is still up. Wrote to MCN about them but didn't get a response.

    Cheers

    There is one or two posted on MCN about motor-racing.co.uk with the same problem, ordered stuff no show and no contact, sounds pretty much like they have gone under.

    Really glad I only ordered pads and a sprocket and didn't include the Brembo Master Cylinder I was shopping for as well!

    Thanks. Reported them to the local trading standards today. Don't suppose they will do much but It made me feel a lot better
