Help!
I was checking progress on an order I had placed with Amazon.co.uk today and when I tried to access the website, I got the message below!

We'll be right back!
We're sorry, but our store is closed temporarily. We expect to be back soon.
If you would like to be notified when we reopen, please leave your
e-mail address below and we will be happy to let you know.


Keep shopping...
Feel free to visit our partner site Amazon.com, which remains open.
Again, we apologise for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.

Your friends at Amazon.co.uk

There was no contact phone number to query what the position was regarding the order I had placed.
Can anyone advise?

Maybe they have no staff.

I heard that they sacked a load of their staff as they turned out to be Illegal immigrants or Asylum Seekers who had been working without correct paperwork work for something like up to 2 years!!??

Or maybe they are having problems with their server?

click here for what its likely to be the real reason.

I think it may be due to the ad for an iPac for £7.50. If you can access the site, buy one :-)

They're back there now

Thanks for all your responses- I'm impressed and will use this again. The site is up and running again and I can see noe that my order is "awaiting despatch" It appears that the site was taken off line due to the " bargain" ads.
Cheers.
