This Company is a scam and anyone fool enough to purchase from them will not receive their order or be refunded . It is run by someone who calls himself Marc Argento and is on ebay and also sales@elitesoundtracks.com. This so called Company has it's address based in Nottingham .England and the contact telephone number given as: 07715275087 is discontinued.

You buy from a company that sells so many bootlegs, you take your chances.

How is he getting away with it on e-Bay?

I got bamboozled by this clown as well in an attempt to order a legit CD - he got the money, I got nothing. Lesson learned - buyer beware.

I ordered one CD from them (WILD GEESE II), and it never showed up. I did eventually get a refund: it took ages and I had to prod them several times, but I did get the money back. Haven't ordered from them again.

He frequently advertises items he hasn’t got in stock either. And after waiting and waiting then politely messaging him about it never answers (this via his Ebay shop). After two more failed attempts at contact I went through Ebay’s resolution system, and then - surprise! - suddenly heard back from him, and got a PayPal refund. Then I noticed he blocked me from ordering from his Ebay shop, not that I’d ever wish to again. He’s a truly pathetic individual - order from Elite at your peril!

I ordered a CD from this 'set up', waited almost seven weeks and finally received a refund, having been told it was not in stock.
A complete farce and will not be using them again that's for sure.

Yep, I also had a really bad experience with this seller where for two months I had to chase him and deal with his shady responses and finally file a complaint for a refund.

And the same here too. To be fair when he started he was reliable and I used him occasionally if I wanted a CD that had gone out of print everywhere else, for which you had to pay a premium. He was quite expensive anyway so I only used him as an occasional 'backup'.

When I attempted to buy an out of print CD that he had listed last year, I heard nothing and received nothing until I started the Ebay resolution process, at which point my money was returned and he claimed he had been "about to post" the CD. At that point I suspected he was having business/financial problems so I decided not to consider using him again.

Interesting. I bought some CD's from Elite quite a while ago, and they all arrived in a timely manner. So I do keep an eye on his site for possible purchases, though there aren't always a lot of savings to be made.

I had a very familiar sounding experience with him too. I'd been looking for soundtrack outlets in the UK, and I placed an order with him through Discogs. I thought I'd struck lucky, I'd just missed out on Edward Scissorhands and he had a sealed copy for a decent price. But, same old story.... waited and waited.... had orders from other countries arrive without problems.... still nothing from him. Sent message after message... got something feeble back about being out of the country. Sent more messages when it still didn't arrive, and just stopped getting responses.

Eventually just started a PayPal dispute, and immediately heard back from him. Got a full refund within hours. When I left a negative review on discogs, he just did the same for me big grin It was so childish. Anyway, within a few days both my feedback and his had been removed. I don't know what the story is with that. But my dealings with "Elite" are certainly over. Such a hilariously inaccurate name for a shambles of an operation.
