Postby eliphas_levi » Tue Jul 05, 2011 21:01 pm

This bicycle website offers 2011 Record gruppo for £400... or how about a Scott plasma for £730?

They're in Indonesia. One of the biggest card scam centres on the planet.

This is my concern! Their prices are so stupid that it is obvious, but if they upped the prices a bit, change the address... then some could get screwed.

There was someone on here a while ago who did get scammed by one of these sites, it might even have been that one!

Please dont buy anything from Indonesia EVER. It,s well known here in the Netherlands that almost every bicycle company is a fake company and only out for your money.

I had a bit of fun with this mob a few months ago.' Ordered' a Pegoretti Marcelo...they were very keen and sent several emails detailing how I could just transfer the money directly into their account..no problems. Played on for a while then told them ....good news, I will be in Indonesia next week so I will come and pick bike up and pay cash! Never heard from them again. Wonder if anyone is silly enough to be caught by such an obvious scam.
