{Please read this below very important}a innocent man Mr Fraser unknowing to him Geoff S Gale had fraudulantly used Mr Fraser /address on a Company Registration form as a Director of officestore24.co.uk. God only know's how he was picked on using him has a Fall Guy or Americans would Say a Patsy. I wish to deeply apolgise to Mr Fraser for this misfortunate accusation and stress that may have been caused. He has managed to clear his name with the Police Fraud Crime. .. I sent a letter to Mr Ian Fraser whose wife replied by email (Dear Mr Mills Thank you for your letter dated 13/04/13, I have not received any monies from you. Unfortunately or fortunately I have nothing to do with the company Office Store 24, & have no idea where you have got my details from. I have been in touch with the police & Actionfraud regarding your accusation, who suggest you have like myself been a victim of fraud. The crime Ref No: is NFRC130500232969 & if you wish to contact them, then please quote this number. After looking up this company on the internet, a contact for Office Store 24 is a Mr Geoff Gale – 07876281095 / 01325 320307 & I would suggest you contact him or the office number on 0800 6250187. Regards Ian Fraser.
This Geoff S Gale goes to any lengths to Fraundently rob people. I reported him a few weeks ago to Consumer Rights who have passed on all the information about this B Scoundrel to The Standard Trading Office Gov UK. Customers who have bought from him, as you see will not get their orders from this ?. Thank goodness the Website as been closed down, nobody else can get robbed from this site. Keep misleading people all the time about receiving their orders and all the time he was using it to gain more orders from other customers. he must have been doing this since he registed both companys officestore24.co.uk and LMG Products Ltd in July 2012. He must have been laughing all the way to the Bank. This number starting with Std Code 01325 320307 is a Darlington Number could not find it in BT phone book. Tried the internet no luck.
I found the Bank he was using sent in by another Scamdex reporter as follows: Bank: Natwest Account Name: LMG Products Account Number: 19606761 Sort Code: 54-10-59 Reference: IN (put your order reference number here) Total: ( Total cost of order)
I do not know how we all going to start to recoup losses. Good luck

I have ordered electric goods from China it took three weeks is Maximum. ( I have just ordered another Projector bundle from http://www.projectorsite.co.uk through their ebay site on Sunday 21 of April 2013 and guess what? it arrived on Tuesday Morning 23 April 2013 at 10:15 by UPS which goes to show there are some Company can give a first class service and care about their customers. Not dangling from a rope waiting to see if or never you are going to receive your order from the likes off officestore24.co.uk which do not give a first class service. By the way they have covered nearly 12 pages with seperate advertising covering projectors and screens on Google website. They must have uploaded it today Tuesday 23 April 2013.
It seems that officestore is not responsible if people do not receive their orders or late or never receive delivery. It seems they have every corner covered. Which I did not read or any body else either who have complained since January 2013 about not receiving their orders. Below is the delivery page.
http://www.officestore24.co.uk/delivery.html Delivery & Returns Delivery Many of the items shown on our website are instock and can be received next day if ordered before 2pm. Delivery times are quoted in good faith but shall be non-binding. To facilitate a prompt delivery all dispatches will be made direct from either the point of manufacture or distribution. The seller shall not be liable for any losses incurred by the buyer or any other person as a result of any delay in the delivery of the goods or any part of the order for any reason whatsoever. The due performance of the contract is subject to cancellation or such variation as the seller may find necessary as the result of instructions or lack of instructions from the buyer, or as a result of industrial dispute or of any cause whatsoever beyond the seller’s reasonable control. The seller reserves the right to make partial deliveries. Returns - 30 Day Policy Goods will be accepted back for credit only with the express permission of OfficeStore24.co.uk. Please contact us for instructions on point of delivery. Made-to-order items cannot be accepted back in to stock. If you decided to cancel your made-to-order product for any reason, it is unlikely that we could sell it to another customer at full selling price. OfficeStore24.co.uk will therefore charge a cancellation fee of 20% of the order price - this applies to all made to order products when the order is cancelled after 24 hours of placing the order. Made to order products cannot be returned after delivery. Our usual refund policy does not apply to made-to-order products, which cannot be returned or exchanged unless faulty. The above conditions do not affect your statutory rights when goods are faulty, or not as described. Goods must be returned in their original packaging, unused, unassembled and in a resaleable condition. Credit shall not be given for goods received damaged. The buyer shall unless otherwise stated be responsible for the cost of the return carriage of all goods returned which shall be at the risk of the buyer until actual receipt of the goods to OfficeStore24.co.uk. Proof of return delivery will remain with the buyer.
