    ok a kid asked me to help him buying one of those Rumble Pack thingy for his DS on this site http://www.royalds.net

    he keeps saying that this store is legit as his friends purchased successfully from there. but honestly it doesn't look letgit to me at all. seems to me like somebody just sets it up and sells a few cheapo products so that it looks legit but they're actually collecting credit card infos.
    so can somebody with experience help me on this?

    or better yet, point me to somewhere else where i can buy it without worrying.

    what he wants is the M3 DS rumble package http://www.royalds.net/m3ds-real-rumble-pack-.html
    and they must be shippable to Canada.

    any help would be appreciated.

    We have a Guide on checking whether a company is legitimate

    Established 3 months ago. All other information is stealthed. Not a good sign.

    I agree, the website is an amateur effort in Yahoo Stores

    "A Devision of LAE Manufacture Inc." <-- can't spell

    Address:
    10675 Rush Street
    South El Monte, California 91733 USA
    Phone: (626) 448-2195
    Fax: (626) 448-7488

    Google Maps shows an industrial building, which is neither good nor bad.

    As for alternatives, r4canada.com - website is just as bad, and they don't list their street address or phone - bad sign

    Anyway, Search (display by Post) for M3 Real Rumble on redflagdeals.com (Canadian bargain hunters forum) and you'll see waaay more info then you need. According to them, Dealextreme.com in Hong Kong has them and ships to Canada
