The entire gaming community is speaking about this. The word on the street is that this gaming equipment and computer accessory delivery service has taken money from customers and ran away.

Who Are The Companies?
The companies people are crying about and taking action against are: Ziptech, Absolute Tech, and Endgame.io. The Zipetch website has even been flagged for everybody to see. They built trust over the years by delivering some products too. Many Pakistani influencers also endorsed them to the public such as Junaid Akram. Now all of them have deleted relevant posts!
Now these companies, with massive pre-order payments, delayed shipping for a long time. They said that shipping problems are being experienced that is why. Now the report is that the owners have fled away with the money.
What Is Being Done About It?
According to reports thus far, a lawsuit has been filed. The reports are shared in the Pakistani gaming community groups such as ‘Pakistani PC Gamers (PPG)‘ and ‘Computer Crew Pakistan‘. This lawsuit has been filed against Ziptech though other brands are also mentioned.
