Hi Guest!

Our website stays online because of the support of our advertisers. A huge part of them are from banner ads that appear on our site. While some of them seems to be intrusive for some, these ads are needed to keep our community running and continue providing free membership service for buyers.

In light to this, we request that you disable ad blocking programs or add our website to your ad blocker's whitelist. This keeps us from offering our basic membership to everyone for free and help with maintenance costs of our website.

If you have already disabled ad blocking programs or added us into the whitelist, please ignore this message, this message will disappear in a few seconds!

    Prices too good to be true..ipod mini for $90?!?! thats a joke

    Only accept cashiers check, money order, personal/ business check (Qchex) and bank wire

    Do not allow escrow.:rolleyes: i wonder why

    Do not allow inspection..reason they have given is pathetic

    Using a PO box instead of a proper business address.

    1) Looks to me as if it is a free website with a url like that.

    2) No Whois information what so ever due to it being a free site I presume

    Finally; taken from the website in question

    Thats just about enough time to dissapear off the face of the earth with the buyers money.

    My advise, don't deal!

    Could go on and on about this site! Maybe I will in a later! :)

    Its a sub domain of :

    http://ispeedway.com/

    whois will register against the above as opposed to the individual site, its a paid for subdomain using someone elses main domain (this is a valid business operation). Although given the nature of the business why they would entertain this route can only do but raise questions.

    Exactly! That was my first point of questioning....

    For somebody in that sort of market I am sure you would agree mike that they could definitly afford their own website. It all seems a little cheap and rushed if you ask me.

    How the hell did you find it BTW harry? :\
