A site with seriously fishy prices on AMD GFX cards, I need advice/ previous experiences.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So, I was jumping around e-commerce sites today and I found this site with some serious prices.

I was lookin' for an HIS Radeon 7850 and I found this
http://dell.camover.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=2024&offer_id=B007MUJI86#show

So, my question is, did anyone ever buy from this site?
If not, is it safe to? Aren't the prices a little bit OFF?


Regards,
Yami.

Hmmm...Weird, I used the "link" option in the tools box, just a sec.

I am also interested in buying from dell.camover.co.uk (different product, but same great deal).
Anyways, I wanted to share my research:
no where I've googled has anyone complained about this site
various website legitimacy sites say it's low risk
Their domain name registrar has these dates, which seem really recent but might look like that if they just renewed it (via GoDaddy's whois search):
Registered on: 28-Dec-2011
Expiry date: 28-Dec-2013
Last updated: 27-Apr-2012

After all that, I would probably buy from them, but this last one took some digging and I'm really shying away now:
The reviews they give from buyers of their site are copy/paste from Amazon. compare this example:
http://dell.camover.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=364#review
http://www.amazon.com/gp/cdp/member-reviews/A4NR8RJ4O9MD4/ref=cm_pdp_rev_title_1?ie=UTF8&sort_by=MostRecentReview#R35ZC2ZZZE3UEV

That said, If someone has a positive experience with them, I'd like to hear about it as their prices are really good...

DO NOT buy from them. There's several sites that all look very similar. They all use the same layout, etc. They're "supposedly" Chinese wholesalers, but there's a ton of things that are very wrong about the sites. I was looking for an SSD, found a really good "deal" on another site that looks identical to what you're looking at, did some research, and found while there are no direct stories of horror, they are not legitimate. Try clicking the verisign logo, it's JUST a logo, not a link.

there's an extreme chance it's just a scam. Avoid.

Remember the first rule of e-commerce: if it looks to good to be true, it absolutly is too good to be true. I understand wanting to save a bit of money, but at the end of the day it is never worth it. Instead of hoping its legit, just save urself the money by not eating out for a day or two or whatever you spend ur money on. Its always funny to me how people will spend hours searching for a price 5, 10 or 20 $/pounds/euros less than a trustworthy site yet go spend 25 that same day for some delivery food or some unneeded expense.

Ahaha...Man, if you try my life style for a bit, you won't be givin' those pieces of advice sir smile.gif, for the record...I tried 4 sites up till now (newegg is one of them) with no luck...They either refuse my credit card or they just don't deliver it to my country/place.

As for the site, I guess it IS too good to be true.
I appreciate everyone's efforts and such, sorry if it was a waste of time or so.

Good day to you all.
