I have emailed him 5 times to get a tracking number without any luck. I am having trouble with his delivery promise as I placed an order with Vanda (HongKong) and received the product in 2 days. I thought I would take my gripe to SF as there was some movement by Salvatore the last time. Where is
? he was involved in this the last time. I wonder if he has received his 10 pents.
At the risk of sounding pedantic, Vanda's in Singapore, but I understand what you mean - shipping excuse after shipping excuse makes things sound decidedly dodgy.
Whilst I have no dog in this fight, I do think that it's a pity that The Armoury is using Ambrosi even though it is clear that he has failed to deliver on orders placed a long time ago by existing customers. Whilst it's certainly not beholden on them to do so, it would have been nice, given their SF connections, if they'd told Ambrosi that they'd like to use him but that he had to deliver on existing orders first before they would place any orders with him. I suppose that is far too idealistic of me...
It's also interesting - but perhaps not surprising - that when a business acts as an intermediary, Ambrosi seems to deliver the goods but when an individual orders with Ambrosi - even if that person is a good, repeat customer - they end up getting stuffed around for one or two years.
