Anyone dealt with them? Sole trader, it seems; domain registered to a
residential-looking (thanks google!) address. Kosher or no?

hi Mike, i had them (unipackage.co.uk ) come round my uni couple of
weeks ago, i did sign up for the membership and paid the fee. i have
ordered a package but i got to pay some fee for the fone upgrade
before my order is processed, which i havent done so yet as im a bit
worried now. their site claims thousands of visitors and over 1000
members and surely someone must know more about them. however if
something goes wrong, im willing to take it with the uni who gave them
permission to advertise there.

I wouldn't trust them.
A search on the Companies house web site reveals that they were first
incorporated on 3/10/2007.
Some more details - sorry about the broken link - see

You will have to pay if you want to look at turnover etc though.

I agree. What had happened was that someone had thrust a leaflet for
them into my son's hand in London; he's currently after a laptop, liked
their prices, and had the good sense to ask around first. Phew!!! I said
something about bargepoles.

I looked for their postcode on google maps - "unit 7" (in their their
address, iirc) looks likely to be the back bedroom in a residential terrace.

Whatever else, I'd not wish to trade with a vendor that charged for
"registration" before they'd deal with me. Their T&C's are interesting
reading, too.

Every year, a few weeks before Christmas, there are always a few scams
like this.

Do a Google for his address [ 77 Plashet Road, E13 0RA ], he is a man
of many names and many companies (several are dissolved) as well as
many phone numbers and many "units" at the same address!


An example of one of his many companies:
Company Name:
CONTACT CLAIMS LIMITED

Company No: 05792984
Registered Office:
Incorporated: 24/04/2006
UNIT F,
77 PLASHET ROAD
UPTON PARK
LONDON
E13 0RA

Company Type: Private Limited
Legal Status: Striking off Notice
Report Status: Full Data
ccounts Type: Unknown
Latest Accounts to: ?
Latest Return to: ?

I prefer this one:
http://www.netlondon.com/Services/Dr...s.2438915.html
That's Genius Technologies, usually listed as Software Developers but in
this case as dry cleaners.
As in "take you to the cleaners"?

I hope you paid with a credit card - if so the credit card company must
legally pay you for your loss (if over £50).

I too have been conned by this company, I paid the =C2=A329.99 which appeared to be a de=
livery charge. The advert appeared in the Winter edition of the Open University maga=
zine, they have now put a warning up on their Website and informed students that the ma=
tter is being looked into by Trading Standards. Fingers crossed something happens s=
oon.
