I ordered and paid for an item from HeliDaddy one week ago. As it still showed "Processing" and not paid for two days ago, I attempted to contact them at the contact email provided, helidaddy@bellsouth.net.

It turns out this email address has been suspended. I have tried to call the contact number 321-383-2113 several times, but there is no answer. I have also tried the alternative email listed by PayPal for Michael Jones: blazze500@aol.com. There has been no response.

So yesterday I opened a dispute with Mr Michael Jones via PayPal, to which Mr Jones did not respond. Today I escalated the dispute to a claim. Mr Jones has until May 10th to respond.

Let's hope Mr Jones re-appears and takes cares of outstanding HeliDaddy business, but in the meantime, I would caution against making and paying for any orders from HeliDaddy.

Also, if anyone has any information on why helidaddy and Mr Michael Jones is no longer operating, but still accepting orders and payments, please fill us in.

Karl.

I'm sure they'll freeze his account in paypal until he makes good.

Thanks for the warning.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

It's odd they never bothered to update the PayPal address then, which lists him as the recipient and owner of the account, but anyhow, it would be great if he could be pinged, so he can perhaps shake up the new owners so he doesn't get a bad rep himself.

The Helidaddy.com domain name is also still registered to Mike Jones via GoDaddy.com.

If someone else uses/owns this web site Mike may consider taking it out of his name.

Case resolved
Thanks to those who helped contact Mr. Jones. I have now received a refund from him.

He further writes:
This shop has been closed since the end of last year. I do not know why the web site is even up. It was down for over a month now it is back. I am sorry for the confusion. Mike
So don't try to order anything from helidaddy.com. It's closed, but web site functional and accepting payments.

Karl.
