    What would you do 2?

    We have bought Ben an outside activity set for his first birthday.

    We found it online, ordered it, with the clause that if they couldnt guarentee delivery before his birthday that we wouldnt have it.

    They called the following morning saying that they had no control over the delivery.

    That morning I went to ToysRUs and bought one (£10 cheaper too!), emailed them requesting the cancellation of the order.

    We received an acknowledgement of the cancellation.


    Its just been delivered to outr front door!!!

    So we now have 2 , I've checked all bank statements online and we have only paid for the one from ToysRUS.

    What would you do?
    Work to Live, don't live to work.

    Driving a Signum 3.0 dti and loving it.

    Depends how long its been, if they only charge the card upon despatch it could take a few days to show on your statement, found this is the case especially with credit cards.

    sometimes petrol I've bought doesn't show up till 4 days later on the statement

    Contact them and give them a certain timescale to collect it - after that them you'll not be responsilbe for the goods.

    If they don't collect - then do what you want with it

    Same here plus I never trust anything like that. If something seems to good to be true then it usually is.

    Same thing happened to me at Comet with a washing machine, I ordered it, when it arrived I collected it, a week later they phoned and said it had arrived should they deliver it , I said yes, (now I`ve got 2) 6 months later I sold it

    So hang on for 3 months mate, then sell it
