Gift Registry Update

Friday, October 15th 2004 @ 3:34 pm by Catherine

I’m sure that most of you who are reading the site have heard by now about the gift registry since it has been all accros the media. Richard and I are still waiting for the letter from the administrators before we can act further for guests who have paid money to them and need to claim.

Richard and I will be sending out letters at the begining of next week, if you want to know more before then please email us and we will do our best to answer your questions.


The Gift Registry – LIQUIDATION

Wednesday, October 13th 2004 @ 5:59 pm by Richard

My mother just e-mailed me to say “I am sure you have heard the bad news by now”… took be a good time to figure out what she was talking about, looked at the Gift Registry web-site.. They went into liquidation last week.

Can anyone who bought gifts via the Gift Registry please contact your credit card companies to arrange a claim and you can get your money back. Unfortunatly anyone who paid with a debit card or by any other means will probably not be able to claim your money back. The administrators have said that they will be writing to all creditors, again unfortunatly this could take some time as when a company goes into Administration, banks and secured creditors get money first, then employes then customers and other non-secured creditors.

I havn’t spoken to Catherine about how we are going to manage this but I will talk to her tonight when she gets back from Sign Language, we may have to set up a gift list with Debenhams or similar to allow you to buy the items we requested.

Watchdog and The Gift Registry 2

Wednesday, October 6th 2004 @ 4:44 pm by Richard

As promised here is the link for the watchdog report on The Gift Registry, I have been on the phone to them, and they said:
“the account has been flagged with a problem”
She (her name is Debbie) then went on to explain that this was usualy due to a credit card being declined, from one of the guests… now don’t worry as the Gift Registry will be contacting those who have had problems with credit cards.

They have said that they are going to phone be back tomorrow and explain to me exactly what the problem is.

I will keep you updated!

Watchdog and The Gift Registry

Tuesday, October 5th 2004 @ 9:47 pm by Richard

Some of you may of been watching BBC’s Watchdog and seen The Gift Registry on the program. From what my parents told me (as did not see it myself). The Gift Registry, have been very poor in the past when shipping out gifts, there has also be some incidents of people being given vouchers for all of their purches only to realise that the sum of the vouchers does not cover the cost of the gifts.

I will try and keep you posted.
