Default WARNING! False computer chips being sold on E-Bay.

Somebody is using our name to sell worthless product on E-Bay. We have gotten a number of complaints stating that these dont work from angry customers who are buying stuff under the false assumption that INTENSE produces it.

Here is a sample:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMEWA%3AIT


We are in the process of trying to rectify the situation and I will keep you updated.

You mean those things don't work???



Anyway, I've seen that particular auction before, and never even thought of a connection between Intense Racing, and an Intense Racing Chip...

*shrugs shoulders*

So long as you let people know it'* not you, but hopefully at this point in time, there'* no-one on the bonnie club that would think about buying a 'chip' for their intake...
