Default too good to be true??

Has anyone shopped at http://www.senease.com/index.php?main_page=index The prices there are scary low. I mean a Top Flite Gold edition B-25 ARF for $190.00 !?!?!? Or a Futaba 8FGHS 2.4 for $110.00? I don't know if it's bait and switch advertising or they are just trying to get my credit card numbers to rip me off. [h=1][/h]

the answer lies in the payment method they want you to use. All of the various scams out there usually relie on the western union,money gram, etc. , method as they offer you no recourse when you never receive what you paid for.

I looked at the site for a while. Every item brought up the memory of: There is a sucker born every minute. No address, you have to email them, only accepts western union, less then 1/2 price. If I had the money to throw away, I might try just to see if I get something.

They want you to spend a certain amount of money to get the "wholesale" price. Not my money!

note that they aren't asking for a credit card number, because then you could have your C.C. company reverse charges if there was a dispute.
also seems strange that paypal ISNT an option.

There are so many red flags on this one that you'd be foolish to send them one red cent.

Why not just pick up the phone and talk to one of their sales personnel. Oh, never mind. I see they don't have a phone.

What was it that P.T.Barnum said?............."there is a sucker born every minute!". Don't be one of those suckers! There is enough red flags here to stop a NASCAR race.

Did you see the OS IL-300 Dia-Star for $535.00?
Tower has that for $2599.99.
Does anyone really think this is for real?

Decided against ones better judgment to try ordering something. Confirmed that it IS indeed a fraud. Feel stupid? Yes.

But confirming here so nobody else plays into this.

cheers.

There is. They will get caught defrauding people and will be shut down. Chances are they are in a foreign country though and it won't be worth the trouble to extradite them to face charges here. Anybody can make a website in a day, so no one can control that. They'll hit a few suckers for a few hundred dollars and then they'll disappear and start another website for some other product.
