Alert
LADO-Tech * WARNING*

I ordered a set of gear from LADO 7 months ago. I was told they would ship. I never received the gear. I called again thinking Doug may have forgot or something. He said he would ship them out. Never received a package. After that I sent several emails with no response back from LADO. I have tried calling, but no one picks up the phone anymore. Normally I would not rant like this, but I think after not receiving my paid for product, and not getting any communication back from LADO, I feel it is a must to warn people about dealing with LADO.


Does anyone else have this same issue with LADO?

Turns out LADO have a lot of angry customers that have paid, and not receive product.

Yesterday, when I placed my daily call to Lado I was sent to voicemail of course but this time the message was new and stated that Lado will return to normal business after the holidays. No date was stated so I can only assume they were referring to after New Year's holiday. I will keep you updated.
the message did mention medical issues.

Doug posted on the RCU thread stating he just got out of the hospital, and should continue business in January.

Lado's website now says they are shutting down production and searching for a company to pick up were they left off.

Doug stole from many of us who paid and never saw a product. What a thief. Kept promising that I would get the product. That he would make it good. He never did.

Doug is a thief!

BTW the NEW LADO guys are great. But they got ripped of by Doug too. If he ever starts some new venture stay away from him and keep your money in your pocket.
