Eh just make sure you use paypal or a credit card. Credit card is probably better. Never send money orders, checks, western union, or wire the money in any way when buying online. If you get cheated and you use a credit card you are not liable for anything over 50$ and rarely even that.

I am from the US and have been scammed leaving kenya (by duty free being confiscated but was not told when purchased. half my fault) and was not liable for it at all.

I live minutes away and never heard of them either. Use paypal or a credit card so you can dispute it if needed.

I live in metro detroit.

And that is not an actual address, all the results are coming up for that address are for the duty free, which is something you have to claim your goods if you are coming back, or going back to cananda to pay which ever country you are returning to's taxes for money spent while you were visiting the other country. Aside from that 206 is not the proper area code. It would either be 734, 810, 586, but most likely and in the best case scenario 313 which is the area code for all of wayne county, which is where detroit resides. 206 is for seattle, washington, which is like 2k miles west of detroit. If you are shipping to malaysia, there would be literally no reason to ship it east across the country to go through a duty free in michigan, to then be sent back west to be shipped over the pacific.

I would stay away from that situation totally.

I am from Detroit as well. Went to High school off of Lafayette and I haven't heard of that company. As jesusboots has stated, that area code is off. In that area, the most likely area code should be 313, but the following would also be common: 586, 248, or 989 with 810 falling way behind. As others have stated, Pay Pal thumb.gif.

ya I would agree that this seller is probably fish. Even though the credit cards allow you to dispute and get most or all of you money back this seems like something that would not be worth the trouble. as for going to Lafayette I know its not the same school but that college are our arch rivals devil.gif. Most played college football rivalry

Let me/us know what you need,I may/may not be able to help with your folding gear. Thanks for folding for the team.thumb.gif
