Goodbye Savastore, hello Saverstore

Electronics retailer Savastore.com has risen from the ashes - in the subtly disguised form of Saverstore.com.
Savastore ceased trading in February, after its parent company Watford Electronics was bought out by Globally Ltd - a company which trades from the same address as Watford and is run by Mahmood Jessa, a former logistics manager at Watford.
Now the Savastore.com domain is redirecting visitors to Saverstore.com. The new site's Company Information section states: "After a full review of business and technical processes, the site has been reopened under the new name, Saverstore.com." Customers can still use their log-ins from the former site.
Saverstore looks almost identical to its predecessor, although it's making bold new claims, such as "We only sell environmentally friendly products."
Mahmood Jessa wasn't available for comment at the time of publication, and a phone number and email address supplied by company employees for Mr Jessa weren't working. It's still unclear what will happen to customers with outstanding orders from the former site.
There have also been fresh developments at former Watford Electronics subsidiary, Redteninternet.com, the company that offered so-called 'free PCs' to customers signing up for three years of broadband access. A company spokesman told us that Redten is "looking to change the offer. They'll probably revert to a broadband-only offer." However, he said he couldn't categorically confirm that this would take place.
We'll keep you updated with any developments.

AVOID THESE COWBOYS AT ALL COSTS
I knew exactly which memorex cd lens cleaner I wanted so I went to SAVE some money and shopped on this site.
1st problem was the search feature - showed 2 results one without product photo - so instead of ordering a cd lens cleaner I got sent the dvd cleaner
2nd problem i called them and they admitted there was this image problem and then refused to send me a return jiffy bag. I had to pay for return!
3rd problem they put image up after the event
4th problem they ignored 2 emails stating these facts
5th useless customer support
End result a waste of time and effort.
AVOID at all costs and go to Tescos or Currys or Comet
THEY HAVE BAD REVIEWS EVERYWHERE

SAVERSTORE!..(GO ELSEWHERE & SAVE THE HASSLE!!)
Ordered and paid for an 'in stock' motherboard in the sale.Got email confirmation for delivery 1 to 3 days.
My order was then cancelled the next day due to item being 'not in stock'after i'd already matched & purchased memory etc.
Low and behold---the next day the motherboard is for sale again at an higher price!
I think Saverstore are illegally putting items on like this to show lower prices on search engines to get you onto the website.
No Replies to emails at all just a paypal cancellation invoice
I wont be buying anything at all from this company(like the person in the above post!)
