Hi,

has anyone heard of liteGadgets they are a trading name of AR Supplies LTD in Accrington from their site? They sell electronic goods from major manufacturers.

 

 

Their prices seem ridiculously cheap and everything seems to be in stock. Which seems very odd indeed.

 

I have searched for feedback on them and there is nothing. Very odd, if they are that cheap one would think they would be selling out of everything.

 

just a heads up

Hi, I came across them yesterday too. Am looking to buy a ps4 but worried about how cheap they are selling them for. When you go through to the checkout it does go through to a secure site and its done over paypal. I think i'm going to attempt it but pay by credit card, if it is a [problem] then atleast i'll be insured and can get my money back from my credit card company.

Ive bought a ps4 on wed I recieved a conformation mail that day then on thur another saying order confirmed and payment received Im now waiting for the dispatch details and tracking number, I paid by credit card just in case. I checked them out a companies house and they have been in business as AR trading for the last eight years they have moved location 3 times but thats pretty usual in this type of outfit .the price is not really that cheap you can buy them other places at the same price except the games are not included. Anyway I will post what goes on as it happens.

Please let me know how it goes and if you receive the item, and if it's a smooth transaction!

 

I have been in contact with them regarding a ps4 and have done research but not a lot out there.

 

Kind Regards!

I researched them this morning and yes they trade through a company called AR Suppliers, I just find it odd how I can't find anything about them. I checked the postcode on google earth and it's a massive warehouse, I called another company on the same street and they said the warehouse has about 20 companies within it so couldn't tell me if AR suppliers/lite gadgets were located there.

 

Please keep us updated about whether your item turns up... For your sake I really hope they are legit.

you need to set up a paypal account and add your bank account details to the account. Then when you go onto litegadgets website opt to pay using your paypal account. i haven't done it yet but that's how it should work. but im still worried its a [problem] they have a Facebook page but only 3 likes which seems strange for such a cheap site for electronics.

I don't think you can pay via paypal on the actual website, when you go through to payment you have to add your account details, it doesn't give the option to pay by paypal :-/

i have just emailed them this

 

hi despite several attempts at ringing your phone i dont even get a ring tone which seems very suss.*You are advertising a paypal logo on your page yet when u go through to payments you are asking for bank details this is not normal practise when using paypal.when trying to see customer feedback on your page i am transferred back to top of page.i also think its quite strange how cheap your prices are and the fact that everything is in stock.*All these factors don't look very good for your business and has lead me to believe lite gadgets is a con.If you can convince me otherwise i look forward to your response.

 

and this is the response i got

 

We are not a con at all and have stock at present, Lines are busy at the moment what I do suggest is you call one of our sales staff shortly.Hope this helps.Many ThanksAlbert

 

I have tried number again and not ringing

Hi there,

 

Funnily enough, I've tried to do some searching before I placed my order on Thursday, but only just now found this thread.

 

Like yourself, I was quite dubious about the low price and how I'd never heard of them before. I did enquire about their company via the online chat and was told whoever was on the chat support had worked their for over 12 months, but the company has been there for 3 years.

 

My order was placed on Thursday and I received an e-mail today (but found in my junk folder) stating 'processed and payment received' with tracking details to follow. It also states to allow 3-5 working days. I'll post again once I hear about the tracking details as I can understand your concern.

 

This was at the footer of the e-mail "If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at support at litegadgets.com or by phone at 0330 001 0137."

 

Hope that helps for now!

Hello thanks for the reply.

 

The main issue is that when trying that number it actually fails straight away and you can't get through, I have tried it from a mobile and landline, also searching the number yields no results!

 

I really hope your orders come through okay!

They've barely been around 3 months under that name, plus as like a lot of fakes they'll be saying anything to get you to sign on the dotted line!

 

Good luck and let us all know how you get on

I tried the number just now and it does ring through. No disconnected or those usual 'please hang up and try again' type messages.

I've spoken to them via the online chat support today and was told to expect delivery within 3-5 days after receiving the 'payment processed' message.

 

Apparently the goods are sent via ParcelForce but they couldn't provide me with any tracking numbers.
