Is this a scam? « on: July 07, 2018, 08:12:48 AM » Author: Cole D.
Just wondering if this is a scam site. They have new GE 201SA lights for only $43 with free shipping. I was excited at first and wanted to buy one. But when I started looking around their website it seemed a bit odd to me, their policies sound a little strange and there aren't any reviews or anything on Google about them. I think they may well be a scam site. Plus their domain name .top seems suspicious to me.

I really don't feel comfortable giving them my information and I don't suggest you do unless someone can say otherwise.

Well now I'm almost certain it's a scam. They used the same photo as this eBay listing, which makes it more likely that it could be a scam?

Its not uncommon for companies to use the same image on eBay/Amazon/their own website.

I didn't click on either link but...
Trust your inner instinct. If something doesn't feel right, avoid it.

That just means the connection to the server is secured, so what you get is very likely what the web author put on that server. That does not say anything about that web author intentions...

i agree, the way the description is written is absolutely horrible I was always told "if it has lots of grammar mistakes and mis-spellings it is probably not legit" besides if it sounds to good to be true it more than likely is
