Has anybody used this company to purchase a furniture package? 

Please let me know as we have been contacted by some worried customers.

Thanks

Justin

Hi,

Yes we are using Co-ordinated Lifestyles and have been trying to get in contact with them for the past few weeks with no luck and are now starting to get a bit worried!

Another member has contacted us about this company and the fact that they have lost their money as this company says they don't have it, they only passed it on to the furniture supplier....but they aren't getting their furniture!!  7,000 pounds down the toilet it seems.

AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS

Please give me all the details of this company.

We managed to get enough furniture to just about cover our expenses.....about e1000k out.

Am trying to investigate, so any ammo you have would be appreciated.

Thanks.

My friends and I have been ripped off by Co-ordinated Lifestyles / CU InSpain / Perspective Living. We have lost about €17,000 - so a pretty big hit.

The guy who runs the scam is Noe Benziane, he lives on the Isle of Man, and appears to do this a lot.

PLEASE AVOID ALL THREE COMPANIES - and Noe especially.

The ex-MD's name who is based in the UK is Marc Horn.

His last email to me read:

I have been trying to sort this for you and now the situation has come to the point that I have had to close the company down. I know longer have any staff out there and the only thing I can offer is that when I do catch up with Noe I will make sure I get your money back as well. (dtd 21Feb).

Anyone know of a good contact in Rogue Trader we can get on the case!

Hi

Hi Hilljo,

I last found Noe working for the company below (Sept 07) - I call every now and then to try and speak to him.

Sailcrest Magnetics (IOM) Ltd
Units 12 & 13 Balderton Court
c/o Wilson & Collins
Balthane Industrial Estate
Ballasalla
Isle of Man
IM9 2AJ
United Kingdom


Tel -  +44 1624 824036
Fax - +44 1624 823799
Email sales@sailcrest.net

I spoke to his father in law, who also lives on the Isle of Man, but Noe is one evasive character.

Marc Horn wrote to us saying that Noe was nothing to do with him, so a little different to your encounter.

I am hoping that the Trading Standards Europe, may be able to help. I will keep you informed via this site?

Thanks

Dear all 

I am a freelance journalist researching an article on internet and e-fraud out of the Isle of Man and would like to talk/email/forum chat with any of you and use the example of Noe to highlight how much this stuff goes on, how easy it is to get tricked and how to prevent other people getting caught the same way. At least it might raise awareness.

I'd like to discuss such things as;

How did this Noe character get in touch and how did he operate. For example, how did he want the money sent to him. Did he use eBay? Has the fact that he is in the Isle of Man made it any more difficult to trace him and the money?

Thanks in advance for any help

Stewart Mitchell

Hilljo - thanks for getting in touch. Can't read your message at the mo, because I haven't had the private messaging function turned on yet. I have requested this but am still waiting. If you see this before I manage to read it perhaps you could mail me on s then g then mitchell (alloneword) at g mail point company.

Thanks

Stewart

We too were duped by Noe and Co-ordinated Lifestyles!  I met Noe and a 'colleague' at my property in Portugal in June 2007.  Having spent two and a half hours with them, measuring and choosing colours/fabrics I had no reason to doubt his integrity!!??

We then transferred money totalling £13000 and apart from the odd email from him I never heard any more.  The phone number I had for him is unattainable and he wouldn't respond to my email request for a contact number.

So, almost 12 months since I transferred the deposit I am now in the hands of the UK police to try and track him down.  If I don't get any money back it will be some form of relief to think they may stop him doing it to someone else.

Hi Jillw,

It is so frustrating - your experience sounds just like ours. Which police force are you in touch with? We should add our complaint to yours, it may give it even more weight! Anything we can do to stop this man from fleecing ohers.

** EDITED - Personal details removed **


Maybe the UK police would like to find out where Mr Benziane is.

Did anyone go to their offices? Just wondered if anyone had tried to find them where they are/were based.

I have tried to post a link but it wont let me as I havent posted enough times, anyway, google Noe Benziane and he has done some sort of run/charity walk in the Isle of Man recently so I would assume he must be living there and I cant imagine there are many people with his name!

As somebody who used to work for this snake I wish you all well, unfortunately he took me for a fair amount as well as my workmates. A very nice man to your face but that`s as far as it goes!!

The last I heard he had nothing worth any value to take away from him so I have long given up any hope of getting what I am owed. Lets hope he gets what he deserves in the end!!
