Hi
this may interest anyone that is going to the show and thinking of buying a generator.
i purchased a 2KVA generator from the Solar energy store at one of the shows it seemed to work fine. It stopped working so i ordered a new coil from the shop i paid $150 on the 31 January 3013 dollars by visa it went through to Bulk Imports and Exports Seven Hills. They sent be the wrong part.
i phoned up and spoke to sales they agreed that it was their fault the wrong part had been dispatched so i was instructed to return the part with a receipt for the postage and they would send out the correct part. i did that on the 6 February 2013.
i did not receive anything so after numerous phone calls and two e-mails with no response from the company on 30th April 2013 i complained to Fair Trading N.S.W.
i have just had a reply from Fair Trading they say the company has not responded to them so their is nothing they can do.
so my message is be cautious dealing with this company as their after sales service is non existent.
i am just hoping they have a stand at this years 4wd show in Brissy

Public warning - George Sekuloski and Bulk Imports & Exports



10 August 2012


NSW Fair Trading Commissioner Rod Stowe is warning the public not to deal with George Sekuloski, also known as Goce Sekuloski, an online trader and director of Bulk Imports & Exports Pty Ltd.

Fair Trading investigators executed a search warrant yesterday at a commercial business premises in Sydney as part of an ongoing investigation into Mr Sekuloski and his companies. Business records, computers, loose brand name labels and other items were seized.

George Sekuloski is listed by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) as the sole director of: Bulk Imports & Exports Pty Ltd (ACN 131 768 084); HTR Caravan and Camping Pty Ltd (ACN 154 876 954); and, Earth8 Construction Pty Ltd (ACN 154 876 963).

Bulk Imports & Exports Pty Ltd has registered the following business names: Solar Energy Store International (BN98531802); EProducts (BN98449073); and, Luxury Home Products (BN98418743).

George Sekuloski is also known to trade under the names of: Solar Energy Store; OzEpicDeals; Eproductshop; Double-gear; Esales_superstore; Online-group; Solar Energy Store Australia; and, Lhpnet-au.

George Sekuloski has two business premises at Seven Hills in Sydney and advertises by website and 4x4, camping, caravanning and RV magazines.

He sells products including solar panels, generators, spas, saunas and camping and caravan equipment.

Fair Trading has received 240 complaints and 55 enquiries about Mr Sekuloski and his companies since 2009, including 151 complaints this year.

These complaints relate to: a failure to supply products; supply of products that are not of merchantable quality; a failure to honour warranties; and, products that do not meet Australian Standards.

The CTTT has received 72 applications relating to Mr Sekuloski and his companies. Mr Sekuloski has failed to comply with more than 20 CTTT orders.

Commissioner Stowe said in March 2009 Fair Trading prosecuted George Sekuloski and his businesses, Wholesale Australia Import / Export, Cargo Industries Pty Ltd and Dome Technology for numerous offences under the Electricity (Consumer Safety) Act 2004.

“Mr Sekuloski and his Prestons-based companies were ordered to pay fines and costs totalling $14,984 by Parramatta Local Court for advertising and selling unapproved electrical items on eBay. The fines remain unpaid,” he said.

“Fair Trading investigators found Mr Sekuloski sold two spas and a lead acid battery charger for an electric golf buggy on eBay, yet none of the items carried approval markings, or a Certificate of Approval showing they complied with Australian Standards.

“People who bought the spas encountered great difficulty trying to contact Mr Sekuloski to resolve operating problems. One of the spas came with an LCD TV but the water pressure caused the filter top to blow off and the key pad didn’t work at all.

“Fair Trading inspected Mr Sekuloski’s premises in Prestons and uncovered two models of Masano brand washing machines for sale (XQ50-Q5/C and XQ50-D5/C) that were not approved for sale in Australia.

“A follow-up inspection some months later found Mr Sekuloski was again selling an unapproved Masano brand washing machine from the premises, as well as an unapproved AC/DC adaptor for a remote control toy car.

“An inspection of the eBay website also found Mr Sekuloski was advertising another spa that was not approved.”

Mr Stowe said any consumers who have had dealings with Mr Sekuloski or his companies should contact NSW Fair Trading on 13 32 20.

“Fair Trading is pursuing further action against Mr Sekuloski,” he said.

There was concerns raised on this forum back in Feb 2012 about this guy.

To make you feel better I am having problems with a company in the USA...... it involves a lot more that $150.

Try contacting Today Tonight.

The state run Fair Trading and Consumer Affairs departments are a waste of valuable office space...... they would get more money if they made them into pool halls.

Your next option is to take it legal.... but for $150 it's not worth it...... people like them get away with it time and time again until they do it to the wrong customer.

It would appear the 'cheap and nasty' not only applies to some products but their suppliers as well.

thanks for the feed back. It seems that now if you try and go to Solar energy store it redirects to Inter products online looks the same as the energy store web site. Obviously another one of George's trading names.

hi
and thanks guys
this is very good imfo to have a copy of
the internet always will have its traps and rip-offs
despite a lot of it being genuine
and these type sof con-men seem to get away with changing names and or title entries on the web and continue on trading
web administrators never seem to wipe out these blokes or stop or ban them from trading on the net
there lies the pitfalls of internet purchases and enforces the saying
if it sounds too good to be authentic it probably is a shonky deal
cheers
