I must issue a warning to all visitors
There are sites using a very close URL to ours that they should be aware of One is an 'Adult Only Site' Another causes more concern in that it offers cheap leather coats. But The URL Used leads To This Site. I must state categorically that I have no connection with the two sites mentioned above. All members listed on this site are genuine & reliable Companies They have all been carefully selected & vetted before inclusion. My Original Company was the first to use this title & is The Genuine 'THE LEATHER CONNECTION' SITE (I have used this name since 1980) If you find any other violations Please Report Them.
There is also another Character listed on a Google Search & This one is decidedly dangerous & you need to avoid him at all costs. He gives the name of Michael Wilson & Google lists him as The Leather Connection on page No.6 of their response to any search using that search title. Notice there is no .com or any other Domain classification The Domain used is entirely different & the site displayed is a basic 1 page display. The offer is for Leather Instruction Manuals & you are asked to copy & past a URL into your Status Bar, if you do you are taken to a Cloned Copy of my Manuals Sales Page except that the URL ends with =mwilso4
Now Manuals were purchased from me using a PayPal Clients Account fraudulently (PayPal Refunded their Customer & Instigated A Police Probe). But I lost two of my Manuals, I don't know if this Wilson Character is the one involved or if the Manuals were sold on to him. However He is illegally selling them as well as other Copyright software & music. No doubt he sells it all much cheaper, but do you want to chance your details & account in the hands of Internet Criminals?
Update 4/2/08 I have recently conducted a trawl on the Internet for sites using the name The Leather Connection & apart from Sites linked to mine there are quite a few Copycat sites now trying to gain SEO (Search Engine Optemisation) by using a similar URL to mine. They are not listed in my "Membership Categories" lists & therefore do not carry my recommendations. The old sales adage " Let Buyer Beware" is recommended. If you purchase from any of these sites & the merchandise proves to be faulty please do not Contact "The Leather Connection Dot Com" Please go back to the company you purchased the article from.
If anyone is experiencing difficulty in getting a refund for faulty goods or wants to know more about leather faults then please send me an email & I will let you have a Free e-book that I have written on this subject. The e-book is in PDF format & you will need Acrobat Reader to open it. It is also virus free.
Two Logos for the 'Leather Connection' Please copy & paste if you wish to link to this site. To complete the link you will need to have you site listed in the "Membership Categories" List or on the "TLC Links" page. All listings on this site are Free but they are vetted & can be removed if complaints are received.
