Default Reputable?

Has anyone purchase anything from Hobbytownforce in China. They are also know as "Sunny Hobbie International Shipping." They have excellent prices but only accept cash via Western Union.

Thanks.

Yep. That site is BS. What are you looking for? There are many reputable Chinese sellers.

Thank you very much. I was very close to wiring them $468 for a Hangar 9 Taylorcraft 20cc. I backed out at the Western Union office after the WU rep asked me if I knew this was legit. I said "no" and he advised me against it. Thank God he did!!!

Yup just to let others know, stay away from these guys. They are the friendliest all kinds of help till they have your $$$ then nothing, no email replies zip zilch nada. Emily Chen becomes your best friend till the wire transfer is complete. I tried and I lost.
