    Wink Apollyon Sun

    This is more of a "vent my anger" rather than a musical thread :

    I am just letting you know that I have been ripped off by the band Apollyon Sun, which is a side project of some old Celtic Frost members.

    In their official web page they have a merchandise section via which you can order various stuff related to the band.

    A friend of mine asked me to buy him a t-shirt and a lanyard on his behalf, because he didn't have his own credit card, and so I did. That was a year ago.

    The band's merchandise is being hosted by an online store called Kagi. I paid the amount by credit card and I received a mail confirmation saying that a postal receipt will be mailed to my home address.

    The postal receipt arrived at home but the items never did.

    A couple of months later I sent a mail to Kagi, asking about my order, and they replied that it is the "supplier"'s (Apollyon Sun) fault that my order has not arrived, and I should contact appolyonsun@kagi...

    And so I did, and guess what, I received a 'failure to deliver' mail saying that this address does not exist! :O

    Sending another mail to Kagi, they forwarded me just the following:

    Dear Supplier,

    Following this message is a payment record which confirms the payment
    of one
    of your customers who recently requested either registration
    information or
    the product for which he/she paid. We would greatly appreciate it if
    you would
    send or re-send the appropriate registration information and/or product
    to this
    customer of yours.

    (A copy of this message is also being sent to the customer.)
    ...and needless to say, no reply whatsoever from the "supplier". eyes:

    It's never a good idea to order merchandise from schetchy online "stores", especially if it involves you giving them your credit card information.

    As much as I'd like to favour small independent businesses, that really has been my experience. If you are going to do business with a small stores over the internet, you should always make sure they have a working telephone number and a real street address (not a post box).

    Oh, and when you have been ripped off by some band or their website, do your duty to the international metal community and announce it on every metal board you know, and preferably even on a few you don't know. Just to let the a-holes know thay cant aways get away with it.

    Update on the issue, just to be fair about this

    I had to pass through a rock and a hard place to eventually come in contact with one of the band members himself.

    He said he would look into the issue and notify me.

    From the looks of it, the Apollyon Sun official page has been inactive for quite some time, so by placing an order, I actually sent a request that noone would see.
    However, since the band page redirects to the Kagi homepage (the online store), the Kagi bastards took the money regardless of the fact that Apollyon Sun seem to have stopped cooperating with them.
    A fact that the Kagi employes, themselves, do not admit - they blame it on the band for not responding.

    So a couple of months later (today), the band member contacted me back and said that the issue has been discussed and they have decided to send me something - he asked me if I received it.
    I have not received anything yet (I am starting to think that there's an A.S. fan working at the post office, stealing my goodies ) but even if I don't, for some bizarre reason, I tend to believe that they did send something this time, otherwise why would he tell me so...he could have just ignored me.

    So, now, I'm waiting...

    I have never ordered anything from the internet. Nor do I use mail. If I am buying anything, I will buy it face to face, I don't trust people enough that I can order it.
