    Has anyone dealt with or heard about the above company, I have been having various email conversations with them, and they talk a reasonable game. I can’t find any information using “WhoIs” and the address partially checks out. It just all feels rather suspect, I cant find any history, good or bad anywhere.

    On a additional note, the following website has information on some other scammers that might be of some use to you all. www.scammer007.com.

    Thanks in advance for any responses

    i would say, that people offering goods at that price, must be scamming.

    eg.

    $100 for PS2 slimline, and a buy one get one free offer, that basically, 2 PS2 for £60, i dont think so, how could they possibly make any money on that? :\

    The sites back up now so it must have been a temporary or isp glitch.

    Been asking them loads of probing questions, like company background and weather they are a registered company, references etc, and they don’t want to talk to me no more.

    I have reported them to Alibaba of which they are listed under, Tiscali for the email address and trading standards. Might not have any effect, but it might cause them some inconvenience.
    The above actions may seam a little petty, but it made me feel a little better. Just hope they are fake!

    No response to customer emails are usually a tale tale sign of either a scammer or somebody who is selling fakes.

    You have to ask yourself why a supposed good company wouldn't answer those types of questions.

    I think it is good that you have reported them to Alibaba. If they are selling fakes then you have alerted others of that and at the end of the day somebody has to report them otherwise they will keep getting away with selling fakes...

    Bokken maybe you should do the honours and add this company to the name & shame section... ;)

    Just to let you guys know. I previously complained about a company to Alibaba. They kept telling me they had taken their advertising off but they did'nt. They make promises but all they care about are the profit margins from advertising.

    I will keep pursuing them to keep dodgy adverts out. I might have to use some scare tactics to make sure they listen to me if the adverts are not removed.

    I was recently searching for scammers on the Internet and found another Chinese/Japanese company on google who has at least 10-15 different website addresses (found so far) with the exact same look. I will let everyone know once I have compiled a list.

    I don't know about any of you guys but I think I have seen 'Ketan Bhatt' mentioned somewhere else but I don't know where. I am pretty sure it was regarding complaints aswell.

    Hi Anthony,

    Thanks for the interest. I'm embarrassed to say I paid by WesternUnion. Claim? Where, to who? Does anyone really chase this sort of stuff up?

    Thanks,
    Alistair.
