Hi Ozan - hope you get it sorted. When I buy anything online I always check 4 things are present
1. The compnay selling and the company taking my money are both secure sites (you will see a small padlock at the bottom of your browser)
2. Thay have a landline telephone number within the UK (no mobile or Fax only contacts)
3. An email address for contact - not an on-screen contact form.
4. A UK address giving name and location to which you can write or go to in person (or send the boys round to if necessary )

There are numerous sites who although appear to be big sellers many are just agents who take your order and then buy the stuff and then forward to you. In other words they can't supply until their supplier supplies them (too many links in the chain for my liking). Personally I prefer not to buy online if I can help it - I prefer to buy locally where possible - not only can I go back if things go wrong but I am also supporting local business and jobs.
It's the old saying Caveat Emptor (Buyer beware?)
