    Can someone please confirm whether or not this is a scam site?

    I'm pretty sure it is, but I would like some feedback on this site

    Eg. LV Sun Glasses: Wholesale £17, Retail for £95? Ridiculously low. Same goes for other products

    Does'nt look too good to me as there is no company address listed only email!
    I think it may be someone who is using another dropshipper as postage seems a bit excessive at £10 flat rate!
    Personally I would stay away.

    Did a whois and found an address and name for the registar of the website.

    Based in cumbria, registered jan 2005. Clear to see that it is a fairly new site.

    Taken from their sites FAQ I found: the following question:

    If they are purchasing in bulk they would surely get a sanitised invoice clearly stating authenticity.

    There wording and general grammer is a little suspect as well.

    It would be worth getting somebody established in the clothing industry to have a look at the site before making any purchases.

    Where is EProgressive when you need him?! lol

    Do you think we should invite someone who owns/runs that site to view this thread and have their say? ;)

    Definitly, it is only right that we get the truth!

    Don't think that they would though, would they?

    Good of the bloke to email

    He earns some respect points for that. Most people would just not bother!

    He also seems quite clued up to what is going on.

    A tough one to call really! :\

    The statement reference domain registrant and owner is correct and happens quite a bit, although the comparison between the vehicle document is dodgy as anyone named on the document IS seen as the legal owner in the eyes of the Law (just me being picky there).

    I have relatively little experience of the clothing industry but am well aware of the fakes that band about so readily and if I was entering into the sector would only want to buy from suppliers that can guarentee that the product is 100% as there is always a market for the real stuff and fakes are way cheaper to buy from ebay than any website.

    Using that point the following statement :

    would mean an instant close click from me, also this so called disclaimer has no basis in Law and is a business 'ethic' issue that would move me onto another supplier.

    My 2 cents,

    Mike

    I have used this company a couple times, I have bought Moshino T shirts and jeans - I was even offered paperwork on some items - mind you i had to ask & had to pay approx 15% over the site prices - which sux a bit, Strangely the gear without paperwork seemed exactly the same ???. I can not say if all the gear is authentic because you can not tell unless you examine each & every item by hand - I know someone who buys a lot of Juicy stuff of them and reckons they must be grey trades as it is the same as what he can get from the states.

    A question : is it ileagle to knowingly sell on grey traded goods in this country ? or is this another grey area of the law... lol coz this always confuses me :\

    Not sure about that question.

    You tried googling it?

    Have a look at one of the company house websites or something.

    Thanks for the pointers but I still have no real answers. It seems that goods imported from the EEC are not viewd under EEC law as grey trade even though the company brand owner may disagree ? Maybe we should all look a little deeper into this ?

    It is common knowledge that importing isn't an easy business...

    I'll have a snoop around and see if I can find out any more info.... :)
