Hey! New User and a Quick Question, Help?


Hanmer, Ontario
2006 Mazda 3 GT 2.3
Alright so, I have a 2006 Mazda 3 GT and I'm putting some work into it. I have some projector headlights, new interior, sound system and such. I bought myself some LED tail lights but, this is where the problem starts. I bought them from depoautolights.com and the only thing I got for order confirmation is an email called "Order Process" and nothing else. This is about a month ago. Can someone PLEASE tell me if this site is legit, or complete bull because I really don't want my $350 to be floating around or in the wrong hands...

Thanks! And it's not a problem, I'd prefer to have moderation on sites being posted to be honest; if not that could get pretty ugly. And see, that's the thing, I've contacted them through email three separate times with the same problem and I gave them a call not ten minutes ago. That's kind of why I wanted to post something on a car modification forum to see if anyone else has actually gotten their stuff from them. The number they have merely gives me a, "Hi, you've reached (the number) leaved a message or press # for shipping instructions". I've tried leaving a message and using the pound method all with no human response at all. The site is paypal approved and there are over three hundred positive reviews on their ebay page, but in terms of contact it seems like they don't even exist. It just terrifies me because I have my card number on there...

Basically, I did some searching (thanks a lot for the background check of sorts on the site^^) and and sending them this email;
"Sales: Legal Action Will Be Taken

Hello Depo Auto Lights,
This is the fourth time I have contacted your website and have not gotten any replies. I ordered a set of Mazda 3 Tail lights from you on October 19, 2010. If I do not receive my package or confirmation that my package has either been shipped, or will be shipped then I will take legal action against both of your websites. I want a tracking number for my package once it is shipped. Again, if I don't get a response to this email, econsumer.gov will be contacted and legal action will be taken against you. This is ridiculous and by far the worst customer service I have even seen. You've been warned and have three days, (Thursday, November 4, 2010) until I contact legal services.
Thank you,
Jordan R. Raciborski"

Hopefully that gets their attention.
