Here's another one:
Many similarities between this website and the one in the original posting. Both registered on who.is under the same BS-sounding registrant name in the same BS-sounding city in China, both in November of last year. Both now forward to a new domain (mine to vestasoo.com, the original to boweifeng.com), both similarly registered as above. Both have similarly structured checkout pages, and both charge a flat $45 to ship anything anywhere (yeah, right).
I agree, even if they stole most of the code from other websites, someone went to a lot
of trouble with these for a scam. They even have live people answering their email (I got answers to three questions within minutes each time, specifically worded such that if it was an AI reply, the software would cost more than to have people do it). The replies only stopped when I asked for a photo of the stock they proposed to send me. Haven't heard back ever again. Glad I used a temp email and made up name and address...
We're going to have to be increasingly careful about buying anything direct from China.
