    There's zero feedback for this site so I'd be hesitant, besides the fact that it's being sold for so much under retail.

    Edit: Not to mention this site is riddled with spelling errors, the "costumer SERVICE" e-mail address is: nothingtocome@hotmail.com
    I smell a rat.

    It sounds like a scam to me... Especially because of the lack of customer feedback

    It's a scam. They have no phone number and no physical address listed. Just ignore it and move on.

    Scam... you just have to keep in mind that, usually, if it sounds too good to be true, it's because it actually is

    Edit: Okay after reading a few posts from Albertobriso, this guy sounds like he's behind this shady site ecrater.com. Doesn't surprise me that he's now In Time-Out.

    they're at it again. if you search for stuff on froogle, check the customer reviews and ratings! one deal on ecrater.com listed a seller in indonesia that only accepted cashier's checks!! :mad:

    here ya go.

    Great find there. I hate to say it but with an e-mail address of nothingtocome@hotmail.com, it can only hint that nothing will be coming in the mail. A fool and his money are soon parted. Man I wouldn't doubt that there are scammers perusing this site but it's annoying to find out that when someone comes on here asking whether such and such is a good deal and you try and point out the obvious that it's a scam, they, in the end, turn out to be the scammers.
