Beware of dealing with scott country

Post by scirroco » 16 Jan 2018, 19:23

A good friend of mine ,purchased a pulsar helion thermal from scott country, he had a big problem with horizontal lines across the screen ,he sent them a video and they said the lines was because he was near power lines !! They tried to fob him off left right and centre What dickheads!! Anyway this guy is not one ti be fo bed off ,this took best part of 6 months for them to sort ,it was only when he got trading standards involved and he finally recieved a new helion today,
So in my view these peoplw are not worth dealing with ..so be warned

Your friend needs to ensure that the warranty period for the replacement item is for the full term, i.e. not from the original date of the faulty item. deerwarden

Somewhat off topic but apparently SC have a contract with the RSPB to supply thermal and NV gear for controlling foxes on their reserves (at least in Scotland).
I don't have a problem with controlling foxes to reduce predation on ground nesting birds, but the RSPB stay extremely quiet about it and the contractors they use for fox control are prohibited from using lamps - only NV and/or thermal is permitted.
This is to reduce the possibility of the public at large knowing what they are up to.
I imagine the old lady animal lovers who donates significant sums to the RSPB wouldn't be so happy to give them money if they knew that the RSPB are one of the biggest fox killers in the country.

Yep,
The guy who got the contract for the RSPB reserve near me asked me to advise him what kit he needed. Needless to say when I found out who he would be working for and that they were paying for it, I gave him a list of the most expensive kit I could think of :D
