[Cost Pi] Potential Fraud - XFX 7970 Black Edition - Page 6  

post #51 of 141
Hey guys, I ordered a motherboard from here recently via PayPal. This was what was strange...
I ordered it on Thursday, but last night I got sent and E-mail saying that my order was refunded and to use a credit card by Midnight Sunday(today) to get the 25% off. Now if you go to their site, PayPal is gone completely. That seems like a huge red flag for me, but I went ahead and reordered it. My credit card is protected.

Must use your credit card by Midnight tonight?! Hahaha! ...

If it's too good to be true, it usually is. And in this case it looks like they're out for your CC's. So easy to pose and masquerade online as a legitimate business these days.

Well, we will see if my order ships out today, since I'm not too far from them it should not take long to get my card, IF, and that's a big if, if it ships out. I have been constantly monitoring my bank account and have not seen any weird activity, except for me ordering stuff drunk at 5-6am. I will keep everyone updated as things happen.

Just got off the phone with someone there and cancelled my order. He actually checked (or pretended to check) to see if it had shipped before cancelling. Guy sounded indian but that wouldnt be unsual for the area (silicon valley).

Starting to think its legit lol. Oh well, still a really weird situation overall and I started thinking that even if they are legit, if I had a problem with my item it might be harder to get warranty support.

Good Luck to everyone who ordered. Hopefully that instills some hope for those who have orders in or thinking of ordering. Waiting for the credit to appear on my online banking before I call off the fraud watchdogs at the credit card company.

I just signed up to this forum to post that on Saturday morning I decided to jump on this deal. I purchased 2 cards for a total of $660, and that's exactly what got charged to my credit card. This morning I received my ups tracking number (no real tracking info on the ups site yet), so this is feeling legit. Good luck everyone who ordered smile.gif

I just got off the phone with CostPi. They stated my card was in stock and would ship out via UPS today from their warehouse in Pennsylvania. He also stated I should get an email confirmation with tracking information this afternoon or tomorrow AM at the latest.

Sounds legit. Will know for sure when the card is in hand.
