Angry Stay away from rctoysbestbuy.com. Scammers

I just lost $460 on this website. If anyone knows how I can get my money back please let me know. First off the site looks okay. Helicopter prices are very low, maybe too low that should've been my first hint. I ordered T-Rex 550 version 2 and a battery $460. The only way they accept payment is through Western Union or a bank transfer. That should've been my second clue. I didn't want them to know my bank information so I did send a Western Union payment. From the time I purchased it, till the time they received their money, the Communication was great. Now I have not had any communication at all in three weeks. No tracking number no response to any email even through their website. The webpage is located out of China and it's been up and running for about eight months. There webpages to new so Google hasn't even rated it yet.
I'm not sure what else to tell you, I think I might just be SOL. Trust me stay away from the site the prices look good but it's not worth losing large amount of money.

Very sorry that you lost your money, sounds like you're sol. Never ever use western union. There is no recourse available to you if you do.

I know it's late now, but ALWAYS run a Google search on websites you want to order from.

I did do a check after I made the purchase, which I got screwed on. I know what I did makes me look like an idiot but I don't want nobody else to be in my situation.

I'm sorry you got burned. That's a lot of dough for trying out a new e-store though.

Default there gone

I tried doing what I could so that other people wouldn't be screwed over by this sight by turning in all my emails back and forth to different fraud agency's. I also contacted western union and open a fraud case against them. They stoped all funds being transferred to them and they also turned it over to the right people as a fraud investigation. This morning was going to go on there sight and send off a few more emails and there sight has been shut down. COOOL I know that I will not see my money again but I might have saved someone else from being screwed over.

Default They have a new sight

I thought their website was down, I was wrong they just change their URL. Their new webpage is http://www.wenxianuctra.com. They only take western union, bank transfer or money gram. Like I said before the correspondence with this company is great until they have your money and then you cannot get a hold of them. STAY AWAY.

Default They have another web sight

I think im in the middle of something bigger then a small one person scam. I just found another sight selling the same stuff with the same prices and with the same contact person also using western union and bank transfers only for payments of there goods. the new URL is www.valeogc.com

The more I try to dig into this the more confusing its starting to get. I might have just gave up on it but $480 is a lot of money in my book. It least for me.

Domains and hosting is pretty cheap nowadays. With what they got from you alone they could put up ten more sites for 30 days.
Sorry for your loss though. Not taking paypal should have been the first warning sign.
