But it still hurts.
UPDATE, October 2007. The director of this company, Ryan Gifford, says he has now sent the signs to the seller. His reason for the delay was that he was “having difficulty with our email” (what that has to do with sending out signs is anyone’s guess. It certainly didn’t seem to delay the speed at which he banked the seller’s money).
Mr Gifford also told us, “If you do not remove the article I will take the matter further.”
So, ‘just a little rip-off’ has now turned into just a little threat.
I advertised my property with OZprivatesale.com.au for free.
They wanted $49 for a for sale sign. I needed two and so I sent them $98.
After 3 weeks I haven’t received the signs. I have emailed them numerous times, but to no avail.
I can’t ring them because they do not have a phone number listed on their web site.
What can I do? Who can I get in touch with to complain?
Surely he can’t be allowed to just take money like that. He has a mail box address and an email attached to his ABN number. I did a search. His name is Ryan, that’s all I know.
