40 50 Media Ltd previously known as Tricycle Media Limited are scammers
40 50 Media Limited, previously known as Tricycle Media Limited are scammers. It is the same people operating the defunct Tricycle Media Limited who are now operating 40 50 Media Ltd. Alan Wareham (Managing Director) and Fiona Jefferies (Sales Director) are the same people operating 40 50 Media. Many people were scammed by Tricycle Media Limited. The company went into receivership and their victims (clients) neither got the service they were promised nor their money back. I was one of those who was scammed by Tricycle Media now operating as 40 50 Media Ltd. I created a profile here on Pissed Consumers about this company in 2013 and I was shocked by the number of people who also suffered the same faith (see link below): http://www.pissedconsumer.com/company/tricycle-media-limited/tricycle-media-are-scammers-do-not-use-their-services-201303****2965.html If you search Tricycle Media Limited on Pissed Consumer's search box above, you will find that there were lots of clients scammed by the same company. In my thread titled : "Tricycle Media Limited - Tricycle Media are scammers - do not use their services" published in 2013, I gave a detailed account about the malpractices of this company. It was in that thread that a fellow victim gave the new name this company is now trading under (40 50 Media Ltd) after the liquidation of Tricycle Media Limited. Do not be fooled. It is the same people who are behind both companies. Alan and his team thinks that they can have a fresh start by trying to distance themselves from their former company (Tricycle Media). There are at least four different threads about Tricycle Media here on Pissed Consumer, most of which are bad reviews, and the good ones are rather suspect. I used the word "suspect" because it seems that Alan is using his team to make positive comments about the company and to vote down negative reviews. For example if you look at the votes in my original thread, you will notice that most of the comments about this company is negative, yet the vote downs are more than or equal to the number of voters who found the review useful. Something does not add up. As I stated in that thread, I couldn't care less about the votes. All I am interested in warning others about this thieving company. However, their behaviour does shows the length Alan and his team will go to in order to limit any negative reviews. Also, even if we are believe the testimonials provided in 40 50 Media Ltd's website (which I believe were cooked-up), those testimonials were for Tricycle Media not 40 50 Media. What they have done was copy the testimonials from the defunct Tricycle Media website and pasted it on to 40 50 Media Ltd. Don't fall victim to their new company (40 50 Media Ltd). See also how they distance themselves from Tricycle Media. There is no mention of Tricycle Media in their new website (e.g. history or about us), yet they have no problem using testimonials from that company. They deliberately did not mention anything about Tricycle Media because to do that will link their new company to the defunct Tricycle Media which had been engaged in fraudulent activities leading to is liquidation. Also, their website gives the impression that they have been operating as 40 50 Media for over 20 years when we all know that couldn't be further from the truth. They only started operating under this name about a year or two ago after the collapse of Tricycle Media. 40 50 Media Ltd is the same as Tricycle Media Limited. Do not be fooled. Avoid this company like the plague.
Tricycle Media Limited - Tricycle Media are scammers - do not use their services
In January 2011, I contracted Tricycle Media to build my business website after a month of email communications to and fro. They promised me lots of features and charged me £578.50 after lots of negotiations which I paid for using my debit card on the phone (in January 2011). That should have been a red flag, but as a small business, budget was tight and they were the most feasible option after my research, hence why I decided to go with them. From December 2010 to the actual date of making the payment, I was communicating with Fiona Jefferies (whom I now come to know as their Sales Director). She was the one who also took the payment over the phone on 28 January 2011. The easiest part was taking my payment. The problem started when I emailed them my web content. They used every excuse under the sun and retracted from the original features they promised. After months of heated and rather hateful emails to and fro, I managed to get in contact with Alan Wareham (the Managing Director). He too said that they did not promised all the features I've listed even though I have all the emails to prove otherwise. To this day (in 2013), they still have not designed my website nor had they returned my money. I have written to them before (by mail) twice threatening legal action. These thieves have still not refunded my money or build my website. The last time I heard from them was June 2012 when Fiona sent me a block email they send out to all of their "clients" regarding their newsletter. This company have no shame and they behaved like vultures for the past two years. After I disclosed all the emails to a legal adviser, Alan threatened legal action (by email). That was before my posted letters. I challenged him to take me to court if he so wish. He never did because he knew exactly what they've done. Do not use the services of this company. Not only will they rip you off, but will try to bully you as well. If you are a new and very small business it is tempting to use the service of businesses like these, but believe me the stress and subsequent financial cost is not worth it. Tricycle Media are scam merchants. Avoid them like the plague.
