    This site has some ridiculously low prices on macs, pcs and other electronics. Do you think it would be safe buying products from them?

    I get a 403 error on that link - maybe the prices were too cheap.....

    Seems fishy to me. No number to call them at.. They say "we will call you". I did a google maps search or their "office" It looks like a house in a subdivision. The prices don't all add up either for example a better computer is cheaper then a not so good one. Personally I wouldnt trust it until several others have bought from there. IMO

    Whatever's too good to be true usually is. Come on $74 for a 32 GB Touch? And like stewartlittle says the company address is placed in a subdivision. :rolleyes:

    Maybe its a new trend! High-end computers sold in basements of houses in the burbs.... oh wait.... thats sounds very similar to organized crime, all centideo needs is vans filled with goods that "fell of the truck" driving around college and uni parking lots!! haha Again, I wouldn't trust it.

    Looks like a scam site.

    Quote from iPod touch page:
    "*Price Valid Until August 12th & this item ships for FREE with Super Saver Shipping."

    Super Saver is a Amazon trademark, so yeah this definitely a scam.

    They really don't want you to know where they are, apparently

    jojo -- very naive if you think that you are protected by PayPal. Read the fine print - buyer protection is limited and onlyapplies to certain sellers. And doesn't apply at all if you are sent a phony PayPal invoice that prompts you to log into a Phishing paypal lookalike site.
