Do Not Buy from eGlobal (eglobaldigitalstore.co.uk)

These people are professional scammers.

On one hand they have chosen a misleading URL ending with co.uk to get you to believe it is a UK based website. Furthermore their prices are in GBP. On the other hand, they do ship everything from Hong Kong and only in the small prints of their terms and conditions, towards the end - you will see that the prices on their website do not mean a thing because customs duty , VAT and other charges will apply when your product enters the UK and you will be charged for them.

Not only that you will end up paying much more than other locally offered prices but you will also have no local warranty. They will provide warranty from Hong Kong - so you will need to ship the product to them in case you require repairs, etc.

I have purchased an LG G2 phone from them. The price on their website was £329. Nowhere on the product page it was mentioned that additional charges will apply. Another £72 were requested by DHL. £10 of them for DHL administration charges.

Do Not Buy from eGlobal Digital Store - you will end up paying dearly and you won't have any local warranty. There is no telephone customer service support and only useless chat.

It is quite clear on the site that the goods will be shipped from overseas. The fact that's it has a .co.uk web address is totally irrelevant as any one can buy a web registration.

I personally would not buy from a .co.uk website that does not have a UK postal address and telephone number. It is also a legal requirement that the company number is clearly shown, you can then look that up on the Companies House website.

As a matter of interest - why did you chose to buy from them?
