Default To good to be true. Align kits at throw away prices

Has any one seen this site

www.rctoyfishingreels.com

They sell Align heli at throw away prices. This can't be true. Has anyone purchased something from them?

Nice prices! Know anyone who ever actually made a purchase there? Not a secure Website. I bet a scam.

I tried filling out the order form with fake info and it never goes to secure.

And, when you click "About Us", it just says 1616161616

Way too good to be true. What is interesting is that it is called rctoyFishingreels. This is too close to rctoyPhishing. I checked to domain and it has only been around since March 3rd 2012. In this hobby, prices that cheap online for 2 months... it would be all over this thread.

Anyone tempted to do it with a throw away prepaid card?
Worst case doesn't work, charge back, etc. Not sure of compromised info though.

We could get lucky with someone who has no idea what prices they are sort of how sears market place has folks selling 450s for more than 1 grand lol.

Edit
I just saw the RC8B.2 kit for 170 bucks....oh internets....why must you torture me with silly potential asian scams
Seems pretty damn fishy though. Has China written all over it and we all know how that tends to go....

Align T-Rex 700E F3C Super Combo V2 AGNKX018E11 for only $529.00!!!

Hell if this was true I would have purchased from here, just as many other folks, rather than paying what I paid for for my 600Pro. hahaha

That is funny about the "About Us" Hahaha! 1616161616.

I have also filled out bogus info and the payment methods are "Wire Transfer" or "Western Union." I clicked on the Western Union and it said this:

"First Name : Hua Ying
Last Name : Fang
Address : minhang dist,shanghai city
Zip Code : 350001
City : shang hai
Country : China
Phone : (there is no phone number on the site)
After finish payment , please send a payment transfer receipt copy to my email:
nicebusinesswithyou@gmail.com
and tell us your item size .
Hope we can make many times business with you.
Best regards!"

The Wire Transfer said this:

"Account Name:LU YAN HUA
Account Number:6013-****-1601-****-464
(I * out a few of the "account" numbers. But they are on there for all to see.. lol)
Receiver Telephone:86-13530952964
Bank Name:Bank of china
Bank Address:40 Hua Yuan Road, Zhengzhou, 450008, Henan China
Swift Code:BKCHCNBJ530
After finish payment , please send a payment transfer receipt copy to my email:
nicebusinesswithyou@gmail.com
and tell us your item size .
Hope we can make many times business with you.
Best regards!"


I smell a Phisher! Don't risk it!

no one that ordered ever saw product or got money back

google search them

I just ordered Qty 100 Trex 700 V2 3GX. It says I can pay by Wire Transfer. Do you know what gauge wire they need? I got tons of wire.

Im not computer savvy enough to dare link to the site you posted. But its a scam, someone at my local field was/has bought one of these scams. It supposedly came witha castle esc like the align kit. I tried explaining that castle isnt made in china so china cant be selling helis for the price of the esc. It was over his head and I havent seen him show up with that bird nor have I asked about it.
