    If it looks to good to be true, it probably isn't. Most likely a scam at that price.

    LOL...if that isn't a craphole, I don't know what is!

    They make it a point in saying that it isn't necessary to contact them..and pretty adamant abou that as well!

    If you look, the time is based in GMT which is European time..why would that even be mentioned if its in Brandenton, FL?

    I don't even think GFs can be bought over the internet except for used..or maybe directly from GF.

    Scam.

    WOW, nice grab of some legit e-tailers store with a few changes, pity the person didn't spend a bit more time on it to eliminate dead give aways I especially like their pricing explanation since when does the USA use VAT. Let's not even get to the payments - international money transfers Some poor soul will be duped by this though and loose their money I think I'm going to have to give them a call and just double check on that price before I place my order

    Pricing

    Prices include VAT (Value Added Tax)* at the standard USA rate of 15%. VAT does not apply to orders that are to be shipped outside USA . These areas will be priced and billed with VAT deducted.
    If you select a currency or a delivery country outside USA., prices will be displayed VAT free, for example, an item which costs US$100.00 will be shown and billed as US$80.00 when it is VAT free.
    While we do our best to ensure prices are up to date and correct, errors may occur and in this case you will be contacted before your order is shipped.

    Payment

    All payments for goods must be made via international wire transfer directly to our bank account, the order will ship after the payment received in our bank account, and to handle any misunderstanding both of sales and customer, please you contact us through phone/email after you have make a payment.
    And email us with the scan proof of the payment by your bank, so we can released your order immediately to shipped. You are responsible for all bank transfer fees, shipping costs and insurance. we will ship your order once your payment is received.

    I figured out how they can sell this cheap. Its by sharing costs with other companies. Like sharing a phone number

    Yeah, but they're more legit, they use Paypal, all be it for an American company to use a Norweigen Paypal is a bit weird Is there no one that lives close enough by to go check out the address and maybe if they find someone there give them a beat down? I hate people that can be this dishonest, day in and day out without a worry.

    Nice one asshat... that's 8 blocks from the actual address. See the way it says "address is approximate", and that the street says "12 Street"? And how the address is "2023"?

    Actual location is somewhere here:

    So what do you have to do with this bogus site? Strange to come on here with all that if you don't. Just so you're clear, it's a residential neighborhood, no matter, not a legit place for a store like is presented in that bigus POS website. PLUS why would it share a phone number with another bogus business? Nice legit link you posted too

    What are you smoking? I have nothing to do with that site.

    It's not a residential neighborhood, it's a brand new industrial area according to google maps.

    I posted a google maps link. It's shortened (by google). It's the internet, Mr 11000 posts.

    I just dislike how 10 dip*****s get together on a public site to bash something/one using completely false information.


    EDIT: I'm NOT saying it's legit, I'm just saying that the google streetview is NOT correct, and thus using that incorrect info to determine it's a scam would be wrong.
