A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I think you will find if you have given your credit card details over (even though in this case it might only be for the postage) and manage to print off a copy of the document confirming receipt of the instructions, by UK law you are entitled to the goods

Anyhow its worth trying, just to see how it plays out, Ill order ten I think

No, I think that you will find several getouts on this one, first one is the basic contract, a contract has to consist of two parts, one the goods and the other the consideration (I believe that's what its called), if the price is zero, there is no consideration, if it were £0.01 then there would be more chance. Packing and postage AFAIK is not part of the original contract for the goods.

Second point, lokks like the site has been hacked, all of the items show £0.00 as thier price, so provided they couinter this today, then there should be no comeback.

Third point is the way the credit card transaction is handled, in some cases, the original sign up is purely a check on funds, the transaction is not actioned until the following day, when address is checked.

The position is that they zeroised the prices themselves because those receivers are not being supplied as advertised. Odd way of doing it. Anyway I gather peeps who have already purchased those boxes have had ECMs bombed at them to knock out the embedded magic cam so some sort of re-jig is on the cards.
