Hope you didn't need the part and you didn't already pay them.

Paid by CC so hopefully good to go on it. Just ordered head studs and gasket set less than 2 weeks ago. Now I guess I'll have to wait and see if my card was charged. Thanks Guys. Clyde

I think Proper MG is out of business. I sent an order on May 16, got a confirmation email on May 19, and my cc was billed on May 22. It's July and I have no parts, no communication and a disconnected phone number. I think that it's best not to order from them and spread the word.

Just for yucks I went to their site and placed an order using a bogus CC number to see what would happen.

I noticed two things right away:

1) You *can* place the order using a bogus number. In fact, it looks like their ordering engine allows anything to be entered and;

2) Their ordering system does *not* use SSL to maintain security! In other words if you entered your CC# or other information into their system it was not transmitted securely! You can tell by the lack of the "https" on the ordering URL.

Very bad!

The site is built using frames, and if you open the frame that has the credit card entry form in a separate window, it appears to be secure. Here's the url:
https://co01.2rich.com/scripts/jaciis.dll?jac=T3JkZXIgQ2hlY2tvdXQ-&mer=MTQ1MTY2MQ--&url=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5wcm9wZXJtZy5jb20vbnJwMTE0Mi5odG0-

If you didn't do that though, you'd have no way to know that the page is secure. Another reason to hate frames.....

To all who have ordered from Proper MG and not received the parts - call your Credit Card company NOW! Tell them what is going on. They will refund the amount and contact the charging bank - hopefully if enough do this the charging bank will go after whoever Proper MG really is.

Also file a complaint with the BBB.

Clyde - if you call the CC people, they will tell you if the charge has gone through - don't wait for the statement.

I wish I knew the names of Proper MG's owners!
