mancraftgb.co.uk/ airsoft imports scammers. Not afiliated with mancraft poland

35 posts in this topic

I hate to have to do this but im pissed off and i dont want anyone else to get taken.

 

 

Ordered some items from these guys on 21st october. No goods, no response to email, doesn't answer phone calls.

 

https://www.mancraftgb.co.uk/ is their website. says they are a uk distributor of mancraft kits. They are not affiliated with mancraft, (who are honest guys who make awesome stuff).

 

 

 

Ive reported them to trading standards.

 

Hope they dont get to rob anyone else.

From what I know, they are not actually affiliated with Mancraft but use their name. I know it's the same chap that runs Airsoft Imports.

 

Just import directly from Mancraft anyway. Postage is quick and cheap from Poland. Hopefully you can get your money back - initiate a chargeback through your bank if you must.

yeah it's the same guy who runs Airsoft Imports as Prof said, if you look at MancraftGB and Airsoft Imports websites they're exactly the same and the address is bar they've changed the first line.... According to them they are affiliated with Mancraft but when i asked Mancraft Poland they denied such claim. He's a joke, i've had dealings with him in certain months and found his behaviour and service shocking. As Prof said get it directly, yes you have to wait but you'd have had it long ago from Poland by now plus your not subject to import tax either so may as well.

The person that registered both domains which share the same address as their respective identical contact addresses, is female, FYI.

Get an annotation on your video warning people about him, you'll save them a few quid and he's bound to remove the link too I guess...

Well i have now put an annotation in my video when i discuss Mancraft stating that https://www.mancraftgb.co.uk/ are in no way associated with Mancraft Poland, i also fleshed it out a bit more in the description.

 

Unfortunately Mancraft Poland basically downloaded then uploaded a version of my video on their channel so i have no control over it and comments for it are disabled but hey at least he credits me and links my original video.

I also messaged Mancraft directly, they state that they used to deal with them but via the old company name of Airsoft Imports, Mancraft Poland stated that they owe them a lot of money as they have equally been cheated out by them, he even named the director like i did stating that he was a disputable person but being that Mancraft Poland is that in POLAND there is very little he can do.

 

He also stated that buyers from MancraftGB should go to the police but having experience with police i know they have very if little powers to stop this sort of tradesman and lets be honest in the grand scheme of things there are bigger fish to fry when theres limits resources.

 

Trading Standards would probably be our best bet but unfortunately theres nothing stopping him dissolving the company and recreating it as Mancraft UK, UK Mancraft, GB Mancraft, Mancraft of England etc.

Sorry to hear you've had a bad experience with a retailer. Had no problems when I bought my Mancraft a few months ago, and bought a volume reducer 17/11 which turned up a couple of days later. Sounds like I may have got lucky.

Please keep us up to date with your progress on getting this resolved.

I went Airsofting on Sunday just gone at Red1 Chisulhurst where most members of the Polish Airsoft Team play and train at, one of the members is allegedly a co-founder of Mancraft Poland and stated that they were having trouble with Airsoft imports before the Mancraft GB fiasco.

 

He has or will let his mate who runs Mancraft know and is worried what affect this may have on Mancraft Poland

I hope it dosent affect them adversely and that everyone sends their business directly to mancraft in poland.

 

I also hope airsoft imports get herpes from a toilet seat.

Hi Guys

 

We we're the original retailers of Mancraft in the UK. We ceased when we struggled to get adequate stock. The main issues were:

 

*Timescales

* Quality control

* Wrong items being sent

 

Subsequently we pulled stock and kept MGB to sell remaining UK based stock. Everything listed is stored in the UK and available within 24 hrs.

 

Unfortunately, this dispute had led to a few casualties. We are currently purchasing items required to finish orders from UK retailers. Once upto to date and all stock is sold the website will be pulled.

 

We have also had issues with facebook and being reported. This has meant i have spent several weeks unable to respond to messages

 

This is genuinely not a con. Just two companies locked in a messy financial dispute.

 

If anyone has been caught in the crossfire, i apologise wholeheartedly and am more than happy to compensate.

 

Please email us at sales@airsoftimports.co.uk or failing that email me personally at nick.woodhead@outlook.com and I will sort personally.

 

Once again apologies for any inconvenience caused.

 

Kind Regards

 

Nick Woodhead
