    Has anyone else tried out the website cloverpawn.com? Did you get what you wanted? Just questioning the validity of the site as it seems too good to be true. Thanks!

    A domain that was registered this year, its contact information hidden and with no discernible physical address on their website. Lots of red flags.

    If something looks too good to be true...

    ...it's probably a Nigerian prince who wants your help managing his finances.

    I say give it a shot.

    (no I don't)

    I bought a GoPro from them and received it last week in the mail. They're legit, just really poor communication... Took them six days to reply to my message, besides that I'm ecstatic with the deal I got and will probably buy from them again.

    I agree with xraydoc - WhiteAndNerdy1 has got no credibility as a poster yet - caveat emptor:cool:

    Common sense. If it looks like a duck then it probably is.

    There are plenty of well established sites selling legitimately. There is no need to go fishing for the sake of a couple of bucks.

    "Clover Pawn shop has been serving Brownsville, TX for over 20 years."

    I'd proceed with caution, but maybe someone who lives in the area and can vouch for this shop's existence/reputation. But it would help greatly if the site listed a phone number and address since it represents a brick and mortar store (presumably).


    Edit: Just Googled "pawn shops in Brownsville, tx". Nothing. No Clover Pawn. It's a trap! Abort, abort!

    Cloverpawn on facebook

    https://www.facebook.com/Cloverpawnshop/info

    Their address and phone number is on the page. I tried to call and the message is suspicious.
    I ordered something over a week ago and just checked to see if it was posted to my credit card. It is not.
    They still list 2 items like the one I ordered on the Cloverpawn.com web page
    Interesting that the picture of the phony owner is from another page.
    I've heard that paypal can be a scam. I don't use it

    cloverpawn.com

    I too am looking into a purchase with clover pawn, have left 5 emails for them stating, 'I want to buy...lets talk' leaving my email and number.
    I have only read 1 positive and as someone else shared, the guy was new. Perhaps clover pawn themselves etc.
    why would any legitimate business not respond or have a phone #

    Has anyone done business with them, successful or not?
    thank you
    Ray

    There's no such thing as too good to be true.

    Don't look for a gift horse in the mouth :)

    Interestingly, snookyspawn.com is one big 404 black hole now.

    ----------

    If the shop matches the picture they've put on their website, then it's not in Brownsville, TX, that's for sure. That picture is actually of the Pawnderosa pawn shop in Little Rock, Arkansas.

    Want proof? Here's Google Street View.

    Something's very fishy about this. In any case, I wouldn't buy any Apple products from a Pawn shop, legit or not. Who knows where the goods came from and who had it before they did? I'm pretty sure the Macbook Pro I used to own but was stolen from me in 2010 ended up at one of these places.

    I would bet a huge pile of someone else's money that this operation is turning goods purchased with stolen credit cards into cash. IOW, it is a criminal ring operation based on the dark net and a cardshop.
