Could anyone tell me if this site is legit?
If it looks too good to be true...
oh, and if the contact e-mail address is @hotmail.com...
Yeah thats what i was thinking but the site looks professional although bad english (can excuse for being chinese) and it accepts credit cards/paypal so you can do chargebacks but still...something iffy about it
I guess better safe than sorry
real (as in they probably do sell products).
fake (the product you recieve would be NOTHING like the real thing)
real (as in products are black-market material)
Hummmm Scam bell is ringing.... I have to say that... just by having an hotmail email as a compagny seems really suspicious to me... really...
What's up with the world clocks at the bottom of the page?
I call fake based solely on that.
(yes, I see many other, legitimate reasons that the site is fake...)
Their e-mail address is a hotmail address! I cannot believe a legit retail site would not have their own domain. Definitely a scam. English is obviously not their first language. And free gift to everyone? There's no such thing as a free lunch.
A good check is always inventory.
Some sites will have loaded themselves up with default of, say, 3 of each item. Try ordering a large number of a couple of items and if they system throws you back to a particular quantity of each then it is probably fake.
In this case there appears to be NO inventory control and it will let you order tens of thousands of each item. Would a legitimate site do this? Probably not.
It's a fake.
I am regularly amazed at the number of times I see businesses that have their own domain name and still use a hotmail/gmail/etc mailing address. It does not take much to setup a re-direction and also setup the "reply to" in the email program.
Why is the keyboard on the 17" MBP white???
because the website is fraud??
lol, 999,999,999 XPERIA X1's FTW! and 999,999,999 PS3's with 160GB each... all this can be mine for: Euro344999999655.... OOOOOH YEAH.
did they really have to put in their FAQ that it is safe for people to buy from them? if some one did ask them this it's not like they're going to reply "no we're just going to scam you but please keep it on the down-low".....
When checking out a site, a quick search of the domain in GoDaddy.com reveals the site is registered to:
yu Zheng firstname.lastname@example.org
+86.1062777187 fax: +86.1062777187
Beijing Beijing 100871
Expires: 2010-02-20While it's not always the case, usually if a site has only recently been created, it's a sign of a scam. Scam sites will pop up, then disappear, then reappear with a different domain name.
I don't see " Authorized Reseller" anywhere either.
I never trust any site that gives a hotmail/gmail mailing address. Even if a real company, then they aren't smart enough to set up their own e-mail and not worth dealing with.
Their FAQ recommends you use msn to contact them. Legit for sure!
If you have to ask that question, then it is not. Go with your gut.
Lol, this site is an absolute joke. You'd have to be stupid to order from there.
Don't do it, seriously. Stick to official retail channels or the bigger name, established sites.
Why would a scamer want to give away his private details, would he not want to keep it hidden, though its probably a fake number too
If they're in a different country it doesn't really matter much if you have their details, nobody will do anything about such a "minor" (to the police anyway) crime. Plus as you said, they're probably fake.
LOL it's because thats a unibody i guess. it must have a white keyboard.
You have to provide some kind of info when you register a site. You're right that it's possibly bogus info. I've seen scam sites that were registered to some kid who's address was an apartment. It's always good to check.
