Default rcblast.net - seriously?

I've searched and searched and can't find anything on this outfit. Their prices are very low and they only accept bank transfers. I would say it's obviously a fraudulant site however ican't find any negative press on them. Nice looking website but something is just wrong.

Maybe there's no negative press because nobody has sent them any money

Would love to hear from somebody that has done business with them and didn't get a Kyesho instead of a Kyosho

Well.....

I put their address into google earth and nothing was found....

Address:
RC Blast
Taman Duta Mas Blk. C6 No. 8
Batam Centre
Batam Island
29432
IndonesiaTelephone:
+6281954662178 +62877 491 88418

If they don't accept pay pal, I wouldn't do business with them. Better safe than sorry, if it's too good to be true, it probably is....(place your old words of wisdom adage here).

Hi OldBourbon,

<o></o>

We're sorry we only accept Bank Transfer as the paymentmethod for International customers.

<o></o>

We only sell rc kits and all of them are 100% genuine.

<o></o>

Honestly, our main target are local customers, rc hobbiesare growing fast in here, it's quite complicated doing overseas businessanyway.

<o></o>

Thanks and feels free to email us back if you have anyquestion about our website.

<o></o>

Best Regards,

<o></o>

RcBlast Team

<o></o>

<o></o>

<o>RcBlast,</o>

even if its legit, im sure it will take along time to ship to USA.
and the chances of something getting lost, or being defective....with no warrenty....no thanx. not worth the risk IMO.

the prices are low, even when you add shipping some models are $20+ cheaper than if bought from other websites. $20 savings are not worth risking $200.

Take it from somone who has been there and done that. I ordered from these guys with all their reassurance and hype and lost $316.00 plus the $45 cost of the wire transfer.
Their sight looks as professional and legitimate or more so as any site that is truly is.. They were extremely helpful and reassuring right up until the time the funds made it into their bank account.I'm still trying to get an answer out of them 2 weeks later to no avail. If I check my order status on there site it still says pending, which in essence means they have yet to receive my funds. This is contrary to what my bank tells me however. In my opinion these guys are crooks. So tell your buddies family and friends they would be better off giving there hard earned cash to charity. I will paste below the original reponse I received from my inquiry. (Please note the part about risking their business)

<pre style="line-height: 17px; white-space: normal; ">Hi Rick,

Yes this model is available in our stock, shipping to Seattle, WA is $38,
we use Fedex International priority as carrier and will email you the
tracking number as soon as we already ship out your order, you'll be able
to check the shipment directly at www.fedex.com

We can understand about your concern about losing your money but we only
able to process Bank Transfer as the payment method for International
customers, we don't have any plan to run $300 and risk our business for
sure, we're sorry for this inconvenience
.

Thanks and feels free to email us if you have any further questions.

Best Regards,

RcBlast Team.</pre>

Yep too late live and learn I guess. I just want to get the word out to to others since very few people seem to know anything about these scam artists. In all the years I've been buying online and ebay this is the first time I've ever been taken.

Ouch... That really sucks. That site looks pretty legit but those prices are way too low.

Everything seems kosher until you read this ā€¯ We currently accept payment through Telegram Transfer T/T / Wire Transferā€¯..... Buyer beware. This placeis a scam and very cleverly disguised.

There is not really much that can be done unfortunatly. I however went in and placed like ten very large orders just to mess with them apparently it worked as they blocked me from their site. It just felt so good to f***k with them back.
