Fraud? I've never had any issues with Shopto. Nearly always had same day dispatch, and free first class post.

ShopTo are one of the best gaming retailers about, with brilliant records of release day deliveries (and early ones too).

Nothing to worry about with them

Beware of a person nicknamed the boss he is a right a hole and thinks shop to is the best!! then when some person points out that amazon sell some ps4 games cheaper then shop to he has a go at them on the forum he thinks he is something special! I have since left them!

Doesn't surprise me. Years ago when they were just starting out I had issues with them and an order. Basically someone on the phone who claimed to be one of the managers of the company shouted at me down the phone as I was wanting to cancel my preorder as I found it cheaper elsewhere but he wasn't happy as they have just packaged mine so I was "wasting their time and money".

Maybe they have improved since then, but I won't ever deal with them.

They certainly are not one of the "big boys" but I have not heard anything dodgy about them.

I would advise caution only due to next gen being in high demand and they may not be able to fulfill their promise to deliver.

I always use Shopto ....decent prices and you quite often receive the game in the post the day before release date

Very safe and never had an issue. You also get a free replacement service for new consoles.

not used them for a while but never had an issue when i have used them in the past, always found the prices reasonable and generally get preorders a day early or at the latest release day.

not heard anything about any fraudulent activity related to them

It's not something iv'e really thought about

It will come with 12 months warranty so I will cross that bridge if it ever breaks which hopefully it won't.

I think they are a little let down by their website but I've used them a lot and I've always had a great service.
