WARNING iCARBON !!!!

Hello @ all

I want to give you a warning of iCarbon. .. This is the last step I can do...

I started german distribution of iCarbon last year August.
I invested a lot of money in parts, marketing and business.. I bought an iphone to improve the communication between germany and miami.. but the communication was still extremely slow and stressful... They promised a lot and didn`t keep any promise..
Now after 10 month the order is still not finished completely .. They are not ansering any mails, facebookmessages, sms... etc..

I send them 3 times an invoice to give me my money back... But they do not care.. it seems as they are traveling arround through LasVegas, LA, NY, etc..., spending MY money and do not care about their business and customers...

It is a pity, because I have lost a lot of money and customers because of their unprofessional attitude!!

Sorry guys.. if you read this, DO NOT ignore my invoice any more!!!!

Micha is a good guy trying to make iCarbon thing work in DE. But you can't sell products you don't have on hand. I think its time to perhaps startup a local German production of carbon products - with typical German efficiency.

I already started production in Germany! .. because it is hard (almost impossible) to make good business if you count on such unprofessional and dubious people..

Is iCarbon out of business already???? I made an order Sep 2010 (yes, last year) on a couple items. They can only ship me diffuser and tail spoiler so far. For the rest (bolt-on mirror cap and carbon grille), they have already charged me FULLY but never responded and deliver. I suspect they have never put those items on production, but they keep selling them on their web site.

Just let everyone here know the way they do business, and please advise what I can do .....

They are going through troubles, the best option is do a chargeback or try one more time to get in contact.
