Up-date: I was in Smíchov this afternoon so I went along to 42 Lidická to see what's there.

It's the same building where Kava Kava Kava is - a well-known coffee shop. But there are several floors, with lots of flats so I went into the passage and there were all the postboxes with people's names on them, including Thomas Fuller and Nikita Fullerová, Czech Marionettes. There were bells to the flats but they didn't have their name on one of them.

Unfortunately, I didn't have time to see what's at Korenského 11 but I'll try to get there next week.

Dear Polednikova,

I very much appreciate that you are following up on this issue. This will be very helpful information as those of us who have been misled try to retrieve our money.

I look forward to hearing from you further when you have time to investigate Korenského 11 to see whether there is a marionette shop or distributor there.

Warm regards,

Jennifer

I have also been scammed!! Isent an order in Aug. and have never received it. They also would not answer my inquiries!! Am also having problems with the Art Shop. This does not look good for the Czech Republic.




Hi Doodlin,
Which company do you mean by Art Shop? Rici Marionettes, their webside is www.czechmarionettes.cz
What sort of problems do you have with them? I was thinking to buy some marionette of them, so better let me know if you have any bad experience with them.
Thank you
Jodie

Hi Jennifer,
I have found the webside www.czechmarionettes.com transfered to www.mymarionettes.com , last week they were using www.czechpuppetsmarionettes.com . It looks like they are changing the address often, propably because of visibility. More people will find their link this way. It seems to be the same company as there are same photos of marionettes.
I hope this information will help.

Kind regards

Jodie

Dear Jodie,

Thank you and yes this is definitely the same website just with a slightly modified name. Obviously this must be how they are able to keep scamming and getting new people in to their fraudulent operation.

Surely there must be something that can be done to make them responsible for their theft of people's money.

I will try contacting the websites that "eso" listed

I managed to get to Smichov again and went to see what's at Kořenského 11. It's a large building that looks as though it's mainly flats although on the ground floor there is what could be some sort of office, with vertical blinds.

Anyway, I was standing at the door, looking at the names on the buzzers - there was no Czechmarionettes or Fuller listed - when I woman came out. She asked if I needed any help and I said I was looking for Czechmarionettes or the Fullers. She knew them but said they were no longer there and had moved to Lidická. So we know that they don't have two premises but that they are definitely living on Lidická.

As she didn't speak English, we had to rely on my Czech and I managed to explain that my friends had ordered some marionettes but hadn't received them. She didn't look surprised and said they they had also had problems with the Fullers.

Very kindly, she gave me her phone number but more usefully, her husband's phone number and he does speak English. So if anyone wants to make contact with him, pm me and I'll let you have the number.

Hi!
My name is Lee. I sent my money in for the "Old Couple" marionettes in July of 2008. They took my money, sent an automated response email, followed by another saying that they were "going through a difficult time."

They would not answer any other emails. I asked my credit card company to cancel, but they said that I would have to settle directly with the company.

I contacted the Czech Republic Embassy, which gave me a list of lawyers and wished me well.

I now have time to work on this to get my money back or the product and would appreciate any ideas.

I trusted these people and wanted to do nursing home shows with these marionettes and my grandchildren...
- Thanks for your time... - Lee
