    Have you tried calling the equivalent of the Better Business Bureau in Stoke-on-Trent? (We call it the BBB here in the US... I don't know what it's called in the UK.) And is the line always busy/engaged? For example, have you tried calling in the evening, or early in the morning?

    I would instantly suspect any e-commerce site that didn't accept or respond to e-mails and whose phone line was always busy.

    Good luck.

    if you paid by credit card, tell them(credit card issuer) about it cos i believe that your contract of sale is probably with them. They will then sort it (poss)

    I did pay by credit card. I have tried the phone the company at all hours. I have managed to get in contact with them twice, but that was three weeks ago, and they give me the same old story. We are dealing with the order sir.

    If you have any advise about geting the money back with the visa company it would be very welcome.

    overclockers are a reputable company.This sounds like a glitch keep ringing them,maybe at 9 in the morning.Don't be surprised if the delivery company has lost your order.

    O.K. I can see your point.Remember though al these companies are just box shifters and need to get your order from there suppliers,delays are not uncommon.That said overclockers has been around for some time and if they were ripping of customers they'd be dead very quicly.

    Yea, I've been to their website many times looking for tips on how to (who'd guess?) overclock my PC and its GPU. They seem very reputable, and are always recommended by the folks at TechTV for lots of different things.

    I think you're confusing www.overclockers.com for www.overclockers.co.uk.
