I posted this post on another blog on Friday but felt that this needed as much exposure as possible so I am recreating it a bit here. There are a couple of dodgy sites that I have spotted which are offering iPhones and iPods at ridiculously cheap prices. The old saying “If something is too good to be true, then it probably is” applied to me here and I did a bit of digging to find out what was really going on.
The websites i’m talking about are www.nano5sale.com and www.ipodsnanonsale.com These websites are nothing to do with the company they claim to be and I strongly suggest not transacting on it.
I did a web WhoIs search which stated that the website was registered in China by a Chinese company yet the address they give on the website is a New York address…to be specific it is a parking garage in New York, which doesn’t seem a likely place for a genuine apple reseller.
The email addresses on the website does not work as I have attempted to contact them regarding using a company name illegally on their site and as yet have had no response. I am currently trying other avenues to get hold of those in charge of the site.
So please don’t fall for this scam, as chances are you will never receive the product and it will make a serious dent in your Christmas present budget
Bye for now
