Why don't you post the con artist's name, address & any relevant information on any Tenerife page you can find; urging people to boycott the robbing b*******s shop?

Rip off people

I got hassled by these guys while out walking from Las Americas to Adeje, all you do is tell them to go away, but not so nicely.

ALL FAKES
by: SANDY

In Lanzarote, they tried to sell me a small video camera saying it cost over £200 in the UK. It started off about €90 and went down to 20 after he kept looking at the owner and getting the nod. That amount shows whether it was fake or not!

Archie Videosonic Las Americas
by: AS

Having just returned from Tenerife. We unfortunately came under the clutches of this Archie. Purchased a tablet, thinking good value. Apparently had to be up graded to English, thought a bit strange. Went back with tablet on our last day, technician not available, but at other shop still in Las Americas. Taken there by taxi, hard sale again and talked into get virus upgrade etc. Back home tablet not working on internet. Have contacted bank to stop further payment. Don't know if we are going to get money back. Do NOT NOT go to either of these shops, they are silver tongued salesmen, out to rip you off! Brings shame to a lovely resort.

Asian Rip Off B******s
by: Mason

Asian electric shops ripping old age pensioners off for thousands. Father in law just had £6000 fraudently taken out of his bank account. Authorities are doing nothing so not to hurt the tourist trade. They need stopping.

Archie and the Bandits
by: Anonymous

In Tenerife at the start of October with two friends. Got caught by Archie and his bandits as we were ignorant about so called Dell tablets. Conned us out of £130 each. Have great photographs of his little grey car and of his staff. Will post on YouTube. Someone else will be paying Archie a visit shortly and it won't be nice old ladies this time.

Scum
by: Anonymous

I bought a Dellitab, used cash thankfully, but...

It doesn't charge after being left in a draw for a couple of months.

Can't access the memory card when downloading, and the notebook needs this extra memory to function.

As a result of these Indian con-men ripping me off I NO LONGER BUY ANYTHING OFF ANY INDIAN - they create their own predudices the selfish parasitic bastards!

Credit Card Rip Offs
by: Rick

Stay away from these rip off merchants in Los Cristianos along the marina leading to the hotel Iberostar. Just beyond this hotel is a restaurant called Waikiki Beach Club is an Indian merchant called David who ripped me off 3.500 euros without my consent for Android tablets and antivirus by scamming my credit card details. As of yet no reply to my emails in getting my money back. Will now go down the long route and get the spanish police and fraud squad to pay this merchant a visit. Hope to god that they close him down for good with his buddies there so beware folks there are no honest shops in Tenerife. You have been warned.
