A boards deal appeared on the 13th of January for "€22 instead of €72 for Full Iridescent Crystal Shamballa Bracelet delivered".
An hour later, someone posted that this appeared to be a terrible deal and was instead the normal retail price for this product.
Boards Deals Niamh responds claiming that the products on other sites "may be cheaper, lower quality versions of these bracelets" which is
A)A terrible thing to claim about other businesses products
B)A terrible response to people pointing out that this wasn't a deal of any kind.
Dudara said I should take it to feedback, so I did some digging beforehand.
1)Ownu.co.uk is in breach of the Companies Act in the UK, as it does not appear to display Company Registration information on any of it's pages
2)The website was only registered a few months ago
3)Ownu.co.uk claims to be owned and ran by the same people who own and run seasonsonline.co.uk.

Now, look here: http://www.seasonsonline.co.uk/brace...-bracelet.html
Same company, same details, same image, sent from the same location by the same people but one is £14.99 and one is £60.00(but frequently appearing on deal websites for between 14.99 and 19.99).
Boards Deals:Niamh excuse is that the exact same product from the exact same company "may be cheaper, lower quality versions of these bracelets".
This isn't the first time I've noticed incredibly creative accounting on Boards Deals, but it's certainly the worst.
This is a scam, nothing more and Niamh's response to it was to cast aspersions on companies who don't scam customers and put her fingers in her ears.
What gives Boards? If i was a private individual doing this on adverts I'd be banned.
