Same as myself. Bought a fusion subwoofer for the boat and had the whole BPay thing as CC won't work. Has anyone been to the police? I will be going in on Monday morning to report them and see if they can't be taken down. Don't expect my money back ever but hopefully they'll be caught or stopped. if you paid by visa bank might assist you i have purchased a gps chart plotter and paid for it 3 weeks ago and have no reply to my emails or no receipt for my money ,their site on the internet .it looks that i have lost my $450 ,they answer no emails .i will have to give my case my lawyers to get my money back This company has taken my money with no evident supply. The phone is continually switched off and the admin email address errors when I attempt to contact them.
They are a bunch of crooks and swindlers
Thanks to those who have warned everyone. Because of you I checked them out and the ASIC website says the company was deregistered in Nov 16
I was going to buy a gps for $899 but luckily I googled them first. Sorry to those who have lost money. Let's spread the word on social media about them!
I'm also a victim of this scam. Attempted to get my money back through my bank but that failed. CBA's response was no and provided no reason. I would have thought the CBA would have some responsibility to do something about this. Why the hell has this site not been shut down. I'd hate to think how much money has gone into, and probably still going into, this account. I sent $609 late Oct 16 . EFT. No contact since. Guess its gone . wow, thank god i found this was going to buy an epirb cause they were so cheap but suspicion got the best of me and looked around to find this, thank you guys , i have now reported them to two different internet scam companies in Australia, this guy will go to jail , its only a matter of time Tried to buy a GPS combo but was then sent email saying credit card payment failed and wanted me to EFT instead
Instantly I've thought it's some sort of scam and now just found this page.
Please be careful save your money
Oh yeah I've just realised that me too have caught out by these piece of work.
Does anyone know how to get the site shunt down?
I have had a similar experience. Credit Card rejected and then paid by EFT. No goods arrived and all communication attempts failed. I lodged this with ACORN and it is being investigated and suggest you do the same, it may not help us but could put an end to this so others dont suffer the same fate. Yes same here if only id seen this first what can be done to warn people Sound Marine Products Pty Ltd do not buy any thing from them
Same as all the others. Tried to buy a combo GPS on 11 Jan 17. Credit card rejected. Paid into their suggested BPay account. No answer to any attempted email contact. No sign of my combo unit. These low-lifes have managed to relieve me of $490. Lesson well learnt. Got the please direct credit message today as 'We are sorry to inform you that your credit card payment has failed'. That sparked the scam detectors and here I am.
I should have known - prices were too good to be true.
Hi guys are we talking about the same company? --> https://soundmarine.com.au/ I WAS about to order from this site.. not done it yet though A mate and I bought a couple of Epirbs on the 11/01/17 like everyone else we are nearly $300 down the drain... pricks won't answer emails or their phone like i can afford to throw money away..... I have a similar story where card declined but they asked for bank transfer - became a litte suspicious and luckily read this which has saved me about $ 500 so thanks for posting this - much appreciated This site must be wiped off the internet to protect everyone from being swindled of their money. Help Like others mentioned on this site, I attempted to purchase a portable GPS from this company only to be told that my credit card had been rejected and to pay by direct debit. I did so on the 19/12/2016 and have not had any reply dispite numerous e-mails to them. There is no contact phone numbers on the web page to contact the company.
