    So I was looking to buy a laptop and I stumbled across this website. The deals are ridiculously good... around 50% off what the products usually go for and free shipping. But I'm wary of such deals just because one should be slow to trust the internet on such things.

    Anyways, I can't find ANYTHING on google... except for what I already posted on other forums. :confused: Apparently the whois states that the website has been up for three weeks. I was wondering what you think?

    If it looks like a scam, smells like a scam, and tastes like a scam, it's probably a scam.

    Seriously, I wouldn't trust any company who'd only been registered for three weeks, especially not if the deals looked too good to be true.

    If it sounds too good to be true, it's pobably not true. This adage is everywhere.

    I made a reached of Helen Minut, supposely she is from the Customer Service Department of ElyoTv.com.

    They send me an email telling me this

    So you guys decide on this. I believe they are a scam and I will report them with the government to shut down the website.
