Game World Direct in liquidation!

Heres a copy of an email I got this morning.............

Due to my short sightedness in choosing my business partner I have been forced to liquidate my business with immediate effect.
As I am sure you will appreciate I do not want to be drawn into giving a mass of details but I will go as far as to say that a substantial amount of money has gone missing including monies due to suppliers as well as monies paid for goods so at this point no goods pending will be dispatched and no suppliers paid.
On advice from my solicitor I am advised that customers should contact our local Police with any enquires regarding pending goods or monies owed:


I have an outstanding order that I placed and paid for on Sunday, I wonder if I'll get my goods??

** UPDATE UPDATE ** GAME WORLD DIRECT HACKED!?!? **

Apologies to all customers for the recent email you received.

The email and website massages are completely untrue, and we believe was posted by a competitor to try and disrupt our business.

We are now investigating who has tried to damage us like this, and the police have been informed.

We are now in the process returning to normal service. The shop and forums will be available to view very soon. Thanks for your patience.

If you have any questions about the current loss of service, Please telephone 08700 424603
or 07969 007985 or email
[email protected]
(please note this is the only working email at this time)

When our email system is back up and running you should email:

Hi Guys, a big sorry from us about the hack, we would not like to quote who it could be while the police investigate.

All i will say is that, if your asumption is correct, i spent over 8500 with said person for bulk stock over the last 10 months, I also have a good idea too.

What amazes me is that because of their own failings in customer service, they have to target little old me, hows this for an idea, keep all your current customers happy, then they would not leave and come to me!!

But the good news is that by doing it the way they have, the police are now involved, and if caught, i will get alot of the business anyway, and keep my customers happy!!

Thanks for all the support too from many customers, they are dying to know who, i think his time is almost up.....watch for a site stopping trading very soon, then you will all know the answer!!

Also thanks to sean for all your support, i do remember you as a customer, the way it should be.

If it is who we think, would you do this to someone who has spent 8500, or would you do everything possible to keep them spending?? I hope you read this too.......your days a numbered!!

Thanks guys, if you need any info, please contact me anytime, cheers, ben

PS, have we sent your ps2 back, should of by now?? and lufcfan, thanks too for your many good posts in here, all the best guys....

PPS, see the message above, thats says do not email this address cos the hackers have them....erm, how about do email your persoanl message to the hacker, i already have, are you sleeping well!!!!!!!!!!!

PPPS, mrbluesman, can you take the police numbers off the post, i think they have had enough calls now!! cheers.

Quick update - I got my PS2 v12 back on Friday all nice an upgraded - in prefect working order

Many thanks to all @ Game World Direct for their support and especially to Ben, who remained in contact with his customers despite all their troubles.

Overall, excellent communication and product turn-around considering the sh*t storm they were dealing with...

Will be coming back to you guys again in future, hope you get those responsible for the upset.

Thanks again Ben

They may sell some clones, but their PS2 gear I have received have all been proper - and at least they sell them as clones.
