Hi Team

I ordered some ink cartridges from Offike on 26 Feb 09 which the web site said would be delivered within 7 days.  After many e-mails and unanswered telephone calls my cartridges eventually arrived on 23 March 09.  When I recieved my bank statement I realised that they had taken a double payment for the cartridges and Offike owed me £188.97.  I have tried e-mailing them and telephoneing them to no avail.  It is now mid May and the only response I have had from them is a standard e-mail stating they will look in to the matter.  I have contacted my bank who say they have no control over card payments and have advised me to go to the CAB.  I can't believe that anyone can take money from your account without your consent.


A few hours after posting this notice I recieved an e-mail from Offike stating that they would look in to my complaint and investigate the double payment.  So hopefully I wil have a resolution to this matter soon.  Watch this space!!

unsupported software »19/02/200906/03/20092

I recently purchased a copy of Paint Shop Pro X2 on line from However when the disc came I had a great deal of trouble installing it into my computer. As a result I contacted Coral for some help. When I gave them the product ID number they informed me that this was an OEM version that was only to be given with a product and that it had no support. They also told me that it is against the law to sell this disc in the UK and informed me that riverstreams are in breach of contract. They also told me that I should get onto the company and ask for a refund.

I did this but the Riverstreams company have refused to refund the money, even though I have now to buy a legal version from Coral. So what looked like a good idea has now turned into an expensive mistake. Tradding Standards have told me that the product is not of mercantable quality as I have no way to get it working Due to there being no support for this disc and have advised me to persue it in small claims court.

Non Delivery of goods »25th April 200928/05/20092


I ordered a pack of 4 toner cartridges for £160.85 from this website on the 25th April the money was taken from my account on the same day. Numerous attempts to contact them by email and phone calls were made and eventually over three weeks later only 3 packs of toner were received (with another customers invoice enclosed)

Since this partial success I have been trying in vain to get the last pack of toner from the company - emails are not answered - phone calls are not actioned - call backs are not replied to even good old fashioned letters are not replied to.

I either want delivery of my toner from the company or a refund ie (£40.21).

The company is R. J. Stennis & Co Ltd (trading as Offike)Unit 1 River View Business Park, Friarton Road, Perth, Perthshire, PH2 8DF.



Please help me get a refund

Liars and Thieves »5th March 200922/05/20092

I ordered a HP toner cartridge on 5th March 2009.  When it hadn't arrived after a couple of days I phoned Offike and was told it was being shipped "on Friday".  I'm still waiting!

When I've phoned Offike the line is usually engaged or unanswered, and when my calls have been answered I've basically been lied to about my delivery.  Calls are also answered with a simple "hello", with no business name given.  Emails are only occasionally answered.

On 20th March, when it dawned on me that my toner was never going to arrive, I requested cancellation of my order and a full refund.  This request was acknowledged by email and my online account was updated to reflect this.  I was hopeful that Offike would do the right thing but, once again, I'm still waiting!

Eventually I contacted Trading Standards in Perth.  One of their Officers paid a visit to Offike and spoke to the owner, who looked at my order and put a flag on my account "to remind him to do it at some stage".  I gave them a couple of weeks but when nothing had happened I once again started emailing and phoning them.  I still haven't been able to get through on the phone and my emails are now not being acknowledged, even with their usual lies.

It's not a huge amount of money involved, but we're only a small business and can't afford to be throwing money away like this.  As far as I'm concerned Offike are nothing but thieves, and I wish I'd done a bit of research on them before I'd placed my order.

I purchased this program called TubeHunter Ultra and it worked for a while.  Then they sent me an e-mail after several months telling me to remove the old software and install the updated software and they gave me a new registration code.  I did as instructed and the new code would not work.  Now I have a program that will not work at all and they will not respond or answer any e-mails asking for a new registration code.  All I want is for the program that I paid for to work and it would be simple for them to send me a new registration code.  For some reason, although their website says they will answer all e-mails usually within 8 hours, they will not answer mine.

Payment Taken/Goods Never Received »21/05/0912/06/20091

Do not use this company - they have no intetion of providing the goods you order. On the 21/05/09 I orderd 2 colour toners at the cost of £409.20.  Payment was immediately taken from our company credit card (21/5/09).  I have made several attempts to speak with someone but only get a scottish woman on the answer phone.  I have sent several emails and have had no response.  I have now given up and have asked for a full refund and a cancellation of the order.  Our credit card company are now investigating and I am going to be informing the trading standards office.  When everyone is trying to keep their business afloat in these tough financial times I find it dispicable that a company acts like this.  TOTALLY DISHONEST...NEVER USE!

I sent for an MP4 player from this company that failed after an hour> I'm sure it was a second anyway from the files already loaded on it. My 2 computers failed to recognise it so no music could be added or anything else. I reported this to the company in 6 E mails over a 2 week period, I've had one stupid reply and feel I'm getting nowhere with them. I'm not sure about the claim title in the above form, that is the order number that I was given when ordering the item.I dont particularly want a refund I'd just like a device that worked correctly. Thanks

No delivery »05/05/200920/05/20090

Ordered HP Back Tone (CB436A) on 5th May 2009. Still after 2 weeks not delivered. Payment taken via my credit card on 5th May. They constantly lie about delivery, saying its been delivered and then when I ask for delivery proof, they then state it will be delivered tomorrow etc (and on it goes....).

When I ring them up, most of the time I do not get an answer, but occassionally they answer, and they are so unprofessional. Its obviously a one man band outfit, who only objective is to rip people off with this scam.

Samsung Fax Toner »30/03/0926/05/20090

I ordered 2 Samsung fax toners and money was taken from my account on 30/3/09.  Throughout the month of April,  I constantly emailed and phoned and was told delivery would be in the next couple of days.  On one occasion I was told I couldn't speak to the Manager because he "was in a bad mood" - how is that for cusotmer service.  I eventually ordered elsewhere - Offike agreed to refund my account but as yet NOTHING. 

They are not to be trusted please do not order with them unless you want lots of hassle and to give your money away.

Refund not received »27/04/0915/07/20090

I placed an order for 1 x HPC9720A Black Toner Cartridge for £91.85 and 1 x HPC9723A Magenta Toner Cartridge through their website on 27 April 09. After placing the order with payment by credit card totalling £213.92 I waited and waited for our order. I attempted to call them to chase the order but the phone continued to ring and ring. I sent emails and filled the enquiry form out asking for an update of our order but had no response to any of my communications.

On 12 May I made an enquiry through the form on their website to cancel my order as my order status was still saying processed not dispatched I was entitled to cancel my order and I requested a refund. I also reiterated this in a letter outlining the reason for cancelling and the request for a refund.

I received two emails shortly after one stating my order had been located and a refund will be arranged from Sarah Fraser and the second email stating that my order status is cancelled and refund to customer. That was the last successful communication I have had with this company.

We are now in July and I have still not received the £213.92 refund. I have since made numerous calls throughout July, left several voice messages and sent plenty of emails chasing for our refund and still have not heard.

I called Offike again on Thurs 6 August and spoke to a very vague lady who didn't even want to say her name. She was very unhelpful and I am sure she was contemplating putting the phone down. She did not want to talk to me about my situation and said she didn't know when it would be sorted. She said I would receive an email / call from someone, but she couldn't say who. Interestingly this is the only call I have had answered calling this number and when I did so I dialled 141 before hand and amazingly the call was answered.

We are still due our refund from April/May. I have since written another 2 letters both of which have not been responded to.

Slowly losing patience at the way this company is treating its customers, and the vague trading that is going on. They are still trading as Offike as the lady answered the call saying Offike and the website is still trading however I still have NOT receivedour refund which is well overdue.

Offike »22 June 200923/07/20090

On Monday 22nd June 2009 I ordered, on line, the above toner cartridge which we paid for by credit card.

I rang Offike's contact number on 29.06.09 to enquire where our order was. I was told that the order would be despatched immediately and that I would receive either a telephone call or email. The telephone call and email never came. Since then I have phoned so many times and was always told that someone would get back to me - they never did.

I eventually emailed a couple of times. On Thursday 16th July I emailed and asked for our money back. Then on Sunday 19th July I finally received an email saying that the lack of communication was due to "to staff issues at this time of year." and that the order was actually going to be despatched. And on Monday we received another email saying that it had been despatched.
The package arrived on Tuesday morning (21st July).
When I opened the package, the box had been opened and stuck back down with sellotape. I opened the box and the toner cartridge inside was not in a sealed black plastic bag. And the tab that one normally pulls to begin a new cartridge had already been removed. Therefore they had sent me a used cartridge!

I have phoned, emailed amd written asking for a full refund.
