    Another one of them "is this a safe site" question.

    The official website of the latest toy online | Award-winning customer service | Great price

    I've stumbled upon this site looking for a specific TF... and... I KNOW if it too good to be true it probably is... but yeah... the TF i was looking for sells for about 80$US... this site has it for 36$... there's a BUNCH of Convention exclusives for 20$-ish... ZETA toys figures or about 30$...

    What bugs me is the descriptions of the products... different languages, some descriptions are directly copy/pasted from Ebay "new unopened, sealed, never used... contact seller" kinda thing

    I can’t even open the website in my browser. I’d steer clear if it’s too good to be true, like said above.

    A quick copy and paste of their about us text reveals it to be just a template of some sort. Definite a scam site.

    Ebay:
    The search I did said that the domain was just registered two months ago (it’s a scam) and the advice I’ve always heard is to not buy anything from a site that isn’t at least a year or two old.

    It usually takes a good amount of time for the databases of known fraudulent sites to gather info on each one, so if something is that new, there’s no way that they have that great of an in-road to offer such a below-market value.

    It follows the same template as other scam sites.

    Edit: There is only 1 legit site that looks like a scam site but is really not: unclebilly.

    Go to the contact page and look at the email. It always is an image like this one:

    [​IMG]


    Instant dead giveaway. Google is littered with them lately, probably all from the same scammer or group of scammers.


    (And looking up this particular email address gets us this site full of feedback, in case your brain is still foolishly trying to tempt you: https://www.signal-arnaques.com/en/scam/view/329375)
