Hey camunsif,

I just by judging of their email being a hotmail account and those ipods and iphones that they are selling and coming from China I would stay far clear of this company. Trust me, don't try and test them out! LOL.

But I would wait for Fudjii to pop in and check for himself too.

Thanks

Hi camunsif,

I haven't personally used Elecfamily.com, but dwmgoods35 is right, better stay away from this supplier. A reliable indicator of supplier trustworthiness is how long they have been online, ideally, their site registration date must be at least 2 years old. We have checked out their site and found that they've only been online since March - of this year! That doesn't look good at all. More importantly, they don’t accept safe payment methods. Paying this supplier by their accepted methods of Western Union and wire transfer means that if something goes wrong you will lose your money. It doesn't help either that they stock mostly brand name goods. More often than not, branded goods that come from China are either replicas or fakes.

Hi camunsif,

I would agree totally with dwmgoods35 ! Forget about trying or testing them. Here are a few more reasons why you should look elsewhere.

1. Although you'll find the PayPal logo on their site, they DO NOT accept PayPal at all. This is already false advertising and not a good sign.

2. Their site was just created last March 24, 2009 yet they have customer reviews dating way back in 2008. Don't you find that a bit off. For your reference, below is their registry data.

Domain Name: ELECFAMILY.COM
Registrar: XIN NET TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION
Whois Server: whois.paycenter.com.cn
Referral URL: Link hidden: Login to view
Name Server: MNS01.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
Name Server: MNS02.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
Status: ok
Updated Date: 27-jul-2009
Creation Date: 24-mar-2009
Expiration Date: 24-mar-2010

3. And we all know that 9 out of 10 times we can find or expect to buy any authentic brand name products coming from China.

Hope this helps. Cheers :)
