    Think of it this way -- no one is going to legitimately sell them a new iPod Touch for that price. So it has to be stolen or fake, or just a fraudulent web site that is going to take your money. The domain name was only registered two weeks ago.

    They would probably have a better chance of scamming people if they set a more realistic price.

    For fun I just went through the checkout process. It ends up they only take Diners Club and 'JCB card', whatever that is. And it gives this message:

    "Note: If you do not have a Diner's Club card or JCB card please select Purchase Order and do not enter your credit card number an email will be sent to you within 24hr with payment instruction."

    Looking at the site there are no references to anything like trustE, or any of credit card companies, or bbb. The only address you can find is a post office box. When a price is that low it has to be either a scam or stolen merchandise. You might get a stolen device and then get in trouble with the law for receiving stolen merchandise.

    don;t waste your time and money on this crap.

    Don't bother. Like others said, either you'll get nothing, get something fake, or get some stolen Touch.

    That's a scam, no doubt about it!

    Just visit the site map. Did you ever see a web-shop with just a dozen of products?

    You have to be quite gullible not to see it.

    Do Not Use This Website!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is site is an ABSOLUTE rip off. Please help me get the word out about this. I will admit that I am such an idiot for playing into this but if my mistake will help others and if others will help me get this site closed down than it was worth it.

    Protip: never trust a website selling something that far below retail.

    Toys R Us has a $10 Gift card when you buy an iPod that cost $149.99 or more, you can also trade your old iPod to them for a GC, don't know how much you would get though....

    It's impossible to get one genuine device at that price. Don't buy anything on it. When you go after small gains you may suffer big loss.:cool:

    And QuiBids is awesome, I usually buy bid packs, got a Wii for about $35 total one day, and I usually buy my video games from there and score the new releases for around $25

    Do you mean $100? $10 isn't even worth the gas of going there.
