Respond to this question in My Messages.


Has anyone ever heard of this company? The website is just photos of electronics and it doesnt seem very professional.

Don't ever trust unsolicited messages through ebay. Especially when the email address is random characters. Report all of these messages to ebay. This is a commone way for scammers to operate... since they aren't selling directly through ebay, you don't get ebay's protection, and they aren't held liable for the products. You will have little to no chance of getting your money back from the scammer without paypal or ebay.

Hope this helps.

The date created was 3 days ago! Also, if you look on the bottom of thier webpage you'll notice the copywright 2001-2006, but with a different website! When you check that website out, it doesnt exist. Always investigate, you may find a real supplier, but only if you want to take the time to sort through all the bogus ones.
