Fin arrived 3 months later

I had the same problem : I ordered my fin in february, and received it only in may.
Several e-mail to Oriana too, they must have had a serious production problem (is it over now ?). They should be more transparent about their problems, because everyone gets suspicious, and I don't think they are thieves.
My fin is perfect, but I hesitate to send other orders to Deboichet again...

They arrived!

After 5 months waiting, with more than 30 e-mails written, contacts done via Facebook, phone calls, etc, I received my 2 fins today...

I´m happy now, but Deboichet needs to be transparent and explain that instead of 2 weeks, they take 5 months to deliver a fin.

Best regards

BelSkorpio Report it and help others to prevent it !

Just a few links:

US: http://www.fbi.gov/scams-safety/fraud/internet_fraud & https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx
UK: http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud
BE: http://www.polfed-fedpol.be/crim/cri...ernet00_nl.php

I have no idea of the outcome, but in your case I would surely try.

Windsurf Right, but this is not the point.
Point is money loss and to be bullshitted and cheated by f.... Oriana!
Getting my money, just for nothing.
My money is off and she can spend it but never gave me what I paid for.

And when I read her posts here, all bullshit. Definetely.
Bullshitted a lot of people for their money, just read french forums, all ist full and all a bullshitted and all
want money. BUT NO REPLY. Thousands and thousands of euros she bullshitted.
That is the truth!!

Unregistered Coming back from Defi 2013 and spoke with different pro riders, say all the same:
Deboichet is off for a long time! There is no production, just nothing, since a very long time.
There are a lot of people who paid and never received a fin.
Also pros and shops are fucked of by this cheaters!
They all, especially Oriana fucked them totally off.
Italians said, Oriana is at Lake Garda. Best is to go to police, some did it.
It is like this: Oriana collected the orders and money and then fucked all off!
Sad story for all cheated honest customers. All trusted in the name and words.
Bullshiter and Cheater, this is the right name, given on the beach from lots of riders.
Sad but true...and be clear they read what we write, but never answer!

same to me...big cheating!

I have the same problem, ordered and paid 3 fins. Paid nearly 800 euros to account of Mrs Oriana Fiorentini.
I received email, that money arrived and that´s it. No more contact. No email, no call and so on.
IT IS A HUGE CHEATING! I know lots of others with the same.
You can read in french forums, same from others.
Like in french forum said, you can "reach" them: Facebook
Look for Oriana Fiorentini + Jean-Jacques Deboichet.
Post and write there, too
Also why is Starboard not helping us?? Deboichet is working for them,they can easy contact him. (french wrote this) They have my money!!! For nothing.
Any more ideas???

Deboichet not delivering fins

Dear All,

I am going through the same bad experience as Expander with Deboichet!

I already bought more than 25 Deboichet fins over the last 5 years with no issues. But now things are completely different. I ordered 2 fins in the beginning of February after getting all the details from Oriana. I made the money transfer at the same time. I was supposed to receive my fins at the end of February but until today I don´t have them… I got some answers from Oriana but she disappeared and is giving no answers for more than 1 month…

I contacted Jean Jacques Deboichet twice via Facebook and he told me that he would solve the issue, but no solution and no more answers until now...

I asked for the refund and also no answers…

How a brand with the previous good reputation of Deboichet and with the strong link with Starboard is behaving like this? Are they bankrupt? Can somebody help?

I will try now to report this to italian police authorities.

Please be aware of this before ordering fins from Deboichet...
