HydraComputers.co.uk

Hi I wonder if anyone has had dealings with hydra computers based in Scotland.

As of last week their website disappeared as did their Facebook and twitter links and I am no longer able to contact them. What concerns me even more is that I was expecting a custom pc from them the very same day they disappeared.

I was in communication with them throughout the build but now they have just stopped responding to my emails and phone calls. I do believe that the person building the pc posts on this forum and I hope he sees this post and gets in touch with me.

not heard of them, but I'd start collating *every* single piece of communication, and any receipts for money exchanging hands pretty rapidly and prepare for a slog...

Edit: Also

WHOIS lookup made at 12:41:02 29-Sep-2015

Also checked google cache, and it's showing the same 'it's gone page' for the 27th September, so it looks like it's been this way for some time.

Do you have phone contact details? If so, get them on the phone asap.

Edit3: Digging even further into this

https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www...omputers.co.uk

Looks like latest review on there (a week ago) says they stopped trading at least a week ago

this http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/hydra-c...rs-infinity-v2 seems ominous

https://offers.visit.io/promo/t/c_b4...19f734fed60dcf is also worrying

yes i have phone contact details, but its just going to message service. I have copies of the details you posted plus other information and all copies of communication with them. I just feel extremely let down by them as i was in constant contact with them and they even kept me updated with the pc build with photos.

Did you pay using a credit card? I just hope you did.

Unfortunately I paid by bank transfer, but I checked that the details tied up. So I have their bank details now along with all my other information. Like I said in my first post I do believe the builder of the system is a regular poster here and I have even seen on this forum in the rig gallery photos of builds he has done that match with hydra computers.

But as I am a new member I cannot contact this person.

Are you sure it wasn't them taking images off build logs on these forums to build up a fake portfolio?

If you can find some of the logs and they're all from the same person, or you can tell me what names he goes by here on the forums, I can have a look for you.
