Dirty Deeds and Nefarious Goings on at Amazon

Something is a foot ( no not 12 inches…..but the old jokes are the best ). On the Amazon website someone called Tiptop_Seller is selling our DVDs cheaper than we are. Now that is a real mystery. We control all the stock and we have not sold any to suppliers. So where is his stock coming from? We are taking it as a compliment that he has chosen such a high quality product to put in his Amazon shop. But where are the DVDs coming from? A spot of sleuthing is required…

Look in the Mirror, you`ll see success!!

Last Friday (28th) November, what we thought was a prank caller asked to buy our DVD after seeing it featured in the Daily Mirror. We placed the order, thanked him very much and put the phone down. Twenty minutes later, another prank call, or so we thought. The caller explained somebody had written into the Credit Crunch section of the Mirror, and said how good the DVD was, especially as she was an OAP.

We got excited, very excited by lunch after 6 further orders, and they were coming every 30 minutes. We found out the person who wrote in bought the DVD back at the start of November and had obviously spent time learning, and was kind enough to take the effort to let everyone else know.

We purchased a Mirror to check, and there we were, about 5 lines with our Phone number clearly written, a dream come true. Orders continued, and despatching was hasty amongst much back slapping.

To date, the Credit Crunch section has gained us 25 orders, and even today, 7 days after print we have had two further orders. We have since contacted the person in question, and thanked them very much. A real boon, and after much paid advertising reaped nothing a real refreshing change.

Thank you to our Mirror writer, if you ever read this message.
