    Prices too good to be true

    Nokia 8800 $455, should more like $850

    Smells like a scam to me!

    Also, the credit card check out is not encrypted like their website states.

    The credit card page isn't secure. Any part of a site that asks you to send credit card details must be encrypted, you will see a little yellow padlock symbol on the bottom right hand corner to confirm the encryption. The fact that the website claims it is encrypted, but actually isn't tells you something isn't right.

    Also, the site claims to be VeriSign secure but when you click on the link, you are only take to the VeriSign website, it does not display and information about your-mobile-world.com, again another lie.

    The site has a "Trust E" seal on their website, click on the link and it takes you to the Trust E website, however when you search though the seal holders for your-mobile-world.com, guess what.....it is not listed!

    This site IS a SCAM! If you are desperate for a bargain, go ahead and give these scammers your money. I'm pretty sure you will not receive anything in return.

    I'm going to email the site to see what they have to say.

    They don't accept paypal, they just have the logo on the screen like other logo's which have no place being on the site!

    I have also emailed them about all of the false seals, links and claims on their website. I however don't expect to receive a response.

    This has to be one of the boldest false claims of all time:

    "Founded in 1998, MobileWorld has hundreds of thousands of customers and was awarded back to back PC Magazine Editors' Choice Awards in 1999 and 2000. MobileWorld is headquartered in New York, NY, United States."

    Here is my response to them...

    I don't know if it was a good idea but these scammers begin to break my eggs....(soory but I'm furious... :p )

    "Ok, thanks.

    But I wanted to ask you if, for the only first order, it is possible tu use ESCROW.COM. I must trust you, you understand.

    Second thing: why your credit card page isn't encrypted ??? I must see a little yellow padlock symbol on the bottom right hand corner to confirm the encryption.

    So what?? How do you want I trust you with that??

    Sorry but you must give me more guaranties..it's not the case here...

    If you don't respond to my question, I will consider you are scammers....(in that case I will contact FBI to ask them what they think about you....)"

    See if you get a response.

    I sent the following email yesterday, but have not yet received a reply.

    Hi,

    I have been made aware of your website and I have noticed that your prices are impossibly low, especially cell phones.

    After looking through you website I have noticed the following:

    The credit card page isn't secure. Any part of a site that asks you to send credit card details must be encrypted, you will see a little yellow padlock symbol on the bottom right hand corner of the browser to confirm the encryption. The fact that the website claims it is encrypted, but actually isn't tells me something isn't right.

    Also, your site claims to be VeriSign secure but when you click on the link, you are only take to the VeriSign website, it does not display and information about your-mobile-world.com, again suspicious.

    The site has a "Trust E" seal on the website, click on the link and it takes you to the Trust E website, however when you search though the seal holders for your-mobile-world.com, guess what.....it is not listed!

    There are many other links and seals on your website, but when go into them they have no relation to your-mobile-world.com what so ever, so why are they there?

    You also claim that your company was awarded back to back PC Magazine Editors' Choice Awards in 1999 and 2000. Can you prove this?

    I look forward to receiving your reply.
