Re: Ripoff merchants!
Here's an update to let you all know how things turned out.
Well over two months have passed since I placed my order with Discount Marine Supplies with still no sign off the missing parts, and no word whatsoever from the dealer.
I lodged a transaction dispute with my credit card company before xmas with all the necessary details of my transaction with Discount Marine Supplies, A couple of weeks ago I received a letter from the cc company informing me that the sum of AU$93.00 (for the undelivered parts) had been refunded to my account.
So a positive outcome after all, and a few lessons learned along the way.
