Place an order on http://technobit.eu at beginning of December for an "in stock" avalon gen2 board which specifically stated "December Shipment".

Seeing as Avalon 55nm chips are readily available for purchase and the boards were supposed in stock, and there were posts of people actually having these boards delivered; this seemed a low risk purchase.

Product was not shipped in December; and now technobits and marto74 are non-responsive to my requests for a refund.

There are droves of other people in a similar situation where their order has not been shipped; meanwhile technobits are happily accepting new orders, but now basically pushing into a pre-order model where you have to order months in advance of shipment.

A few references to others that have not received any products either (these are just a few, but barely scratches the surface of complaints):

There also seem to provide some people with bogus tracking numbers:

I understand that the delays can occur but that still doesn't change the fact that you didn't answer his email.

You can no longer possibly provide me with the product that i ordered.  I ordered a "December Shipment", so unless you have a time machine, any product I receive will be "significantly different from description".

Yet you do not provide any refund (order RGUSYBPJB), you do not answer any emails, or forum messages.

Sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.

You are consistently providing customers with *at best* significantly not as described products; so yes this makes you a scammer.  Just because the industry is full of similar scammers does not make you "not a scammer".

The pattern is always the same for everyone that orders from Technobit...

Technobit take your order for apparently "in stock" items with promise of a delivery month (I think we all know this to be untrue).

Items may or may not appear as "shipped" on the site (don't be fooled into thinking that means it will be delivered!)...

You may or may not receive your order (some are delivered - some are not).

Initially you will get an apologetic excuse then a little later you will be ignored - whereupon no amount of PM's or messages on this board or on their site will generate any kind of response let alone an update for your order...

Ultimately if you were fortunate enough to order with PayPal (at the point in time when they did accept it) and you raise a dispute within the time limit you will get a response...

You will receive a PayPal refund from Technobit and a closing of your account with them - along with a message that your custom is no longer welcome!

For those that paid in other ways - well all of the messages around this forum speak a whole lot louder than any of the words coming from the Technobit direction - such as "we have taken on more staff to deal with customer relations" and "we are now taking orders for February delivery" when it is patently obvious they are not able to fulfill previous orders placed months ago... You weigh up the evidence and decide for yourselves...

Note that marto74 has now issued me a paypal refund (after a lot of chasing him).

I'll still leave this thread here, as until technobit gets their act together they are to be avoided.

Agreed...

 There are still many who did not have the insurance of using PayPal who are forced to just wait and hope... Maybe the order will turn up eventually - but only when the GH/S's for the equipment you ordered is probably not going to provide a break even letalone a profit.

To advertise something as 'in stock' and talk of delivery dates never met in this game is a scam as time is money. Who is to say that the team are not putting your ordered equipment through an extended period of 'testing'?

I won't deal with them again as to me they blatantly lied about my second order being shipped - not once but twice! I don't care what the excuses are - their lack of respect for customers, lack of communication and the BS when there is a reply is no way a reputable business is run.

I just left Marto some negative feedback as well.

Marto/Technobit Seems to have been a good place to buy from in the past as some customers have received their orders but his recent actions totally negate his past accomplishments. He is taking payments for products which he plans to deliver late or worst not at all.
I have an order that has been open from 10/2013 that he still hasn't delivered. 3 MONTHS LATE ON A 3 WEEK DELIVERY TIMEFRAME! They're are even orders from 9/2013 which he still hasn't delivered DO NOT SEND THEM YOUR COINS!!!

READ PAGES 31-39 for his excuse pattern https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=212031.600


OP is correct "In short; STAY AWAY FROM TECHNOBITS; THEY WILL EITHER STRAIGHT UP STEAL YOUR MONEY, OR SEND YOU A MINER MONTHS AFTER ITS EXPECTED AND NO WHERE NEAR ROI"

SMH this sucks....

Technobit  Up to 10 week delays in shipment of some customers Minion Group Buy Units.

The hurt / delays continue for some customers of Technobit who have paid substantial amounts for miners over 10 weeks ago.

I agree with scrappy here, Batch 1 should of been sent out by now. reading the thread its totally unprofessional sending out small orders first.
i see some people waiting 10 weeks now for there order to be shipped out and nothing. Seems people with large orders are getting shafted.

I think compensation is due MARTO!!!!

People have been patient with you since you had a problem with the boards, but this now seems to be resolved.
So what exactly is going on??

i do not what to take legal action as BFL are facing and now KNC miner, marto.
You really havent provided any updates to people with large orders on the forum at all.

Please provide a clear update on what is going on and when everyone's orders are going to be fulfilled and compensation package.
with have been patient, but you have taken are patience for granted now.

There is seriously something wrong with this thread. Folks Martin has yet to deliver batch one yet we have 3 confirmed cases of him shipping batch 2. He says "small orders" Fuck that shit. Mine may have been large and paid in fiat. I have as of to date received 6 of 50, and Marto has promised 6 shipping dates and only sent once!

 Guys, enough of the bullshit.

 I paid in fiat for a flat conversion, have been lied to about shipping, and seen batch 2 orders go out before mine. Check the thread, I was in page 2 and traded in 2 x3's and paid in fiat. I know I am not alone here as I have spoke to many of you in pm's. Enough with the BS, bring it.

scrappy do, dam so shipments are just trickling out. i would of thought at least batch 1 would of been completed by now

I haven't received a single one of my 88 boards. My chips have been at technobit since July 17th.

Marto any news when batch 2 will be shipped, its been over a month now since you received my chips. ive emailed you on your site, 2 weeks ago and no reply.
would like to know whats happening with those.

you going to be offering any compensation for late deliveries now. awaiting 25 boards  Angry and counting

 No offense Guyver, but he hasn't even shipped batch one out. Hopefully he will not ship out anymore batch 2 like the mistake made last week. I just got my first partial shipment today 6 of 50. I know its been over a month for you and I hate it, but it has been over 10 weeks for some of us.
