    Anyone heard about the safety of the site http://www.electroforless.com? Just curious, as there's a kick-awesome deal on a Cinema Display that seems too good...ish. Your thoughts?

    And if it's fraud, would I be able to get my money back? Thanks, guys.

    Sorry; delete this thread, they're frauds.

    Come on, if you have to ask.....

    Just close the browser window and find a reputable retailer.

    "And if it's fraud, would I be able to get my money back?"

    This is a question that should never have to be asked.

    If you send money to a fraud, you can be sure that they have arranged it so they get to keep the money without it being recoverable.

    A favorite trick is to take a credit card, and then call you up and tell you there are 'issues' with your card, and pressure you to resend the payment with a different method (Western Union, Wire Transfer, PayPal) that you will not be able to get a refund from.

    and a newbie says a scam seller is great? Probably a shill for the scammers.
    Not to mention the newbie has only two posts, both on the same topic.
    I'd say the newbie lacks credibility.
