Default "Issues" with Quick Tech hobbies.com???

Any one have some history with an on-line hobby shop called Quick Tech Hobbies?? I ordered from them using a credit card as they do not take PayPal. After responding to the e-mail request from them for the security code I never got any response or the items I ordered. I did however get some unauthorized charges on that card a week later which I am in the process of disputing. It may be a coincidence but is very suspicious.

Google search shows a few other complaints as well, plus by the look of the site, my geek nature says DO NOT TRUST. Just doesn't look like a legit site.

I just followed above links. Wow, this guy just keeps doing it!! Ain't it a shame we couldn't catch him & take care of it the "old fashioned" way ?? All we can do is try to stay on top of crooks like that & RCU is a good place to keep in touch !!

It may be that they have now moved to out right fraud. I have three bogus chages for internet purchases on my account that |I am disputing so I will get my money back. Never mind the products I ordered which I will never receive as the card has been canceled. I WILL make an FBI report on this site... Spread the word!!!

I ordered a large package of Koveall from him in January of this year and paid for it via credit card. Nothing showed up for weeks and I could not get any response from him. Finally, in June, it showed up. Of course, I had bought some from another source long before that. The fact that it showed up six months after I bought it in no way exhonerates him. He is a fraud.

This guy is a jackwagon. Just goes to show there really are no internet police. How can he keep that site up as he commits fraud after fraud for years? And nobody can stop him? He's got stuff on his site that has been obsolete for years and I almost got sucked in when he advertised a product in stock that had been off the market for years and i really wanted it.
