Internet Buying...

Postby jolmes » Tue Dec 11, 2012 21:08 pm

Looking for a new bike and through my internet searches I came across this site http://www.alanacycles.com/en/, it appears to be a wholesaler but has only been around 7 months and seems to have 0 reviews, I'm guessing this is too good to be true as the bike prices on it are extremely low, and most things are on sale...anyone come across this before or had experience with them

Standard templated Indonesian scam site.

very fake

As always, if it looks too good to be true, it almost certainly is.

One pops up here every month or so.
I just bought something - they're just waiting for me to transfer a few grand into their account.
I'm so excited.
