    Yep, they've got A LOT of improvements to do...
  2. Including their pricing structure apparently, charging more for shipping than the product cost's from the manufacturers own store..... Something smells fishy :whale: (I know a whale isn't a fish :smirk:)

    They should get sued. Also that white background is just horrible xD. Everything is on sale? They probably take your address and just stolk you xD

    Thats explains alot they buy it from razer and then they sell it for a fake price. Also a fake shipping free. They probably want the free insider rewards xD, or the free stuff like the razer naga green edition, and the nabu ( example from what it is currently in the us).

  7. That's pretty much exactly what I was thinking. It's a textbook scam

    I know that but you never know it might be like a target or bestbuy (no saying they sell it) buying the product to resale it.

    Those stores are authorised re-sellers. Complete different story.

    Just read through this thread. Lol so the shipping was more than what the item was worth? I had a feeling, that's always how they get you. I could overnight a box of bricks for that price. Yea I know it is a very obvious site, but I figured I'd give the heads up just in case. Any type of bad experience a customer may have with that site would drive them away from the brand, so this could pose a serious issue in the long run.

    The whole thing looks bad and has no Razer theme. Definitely fake plus the points listed above.

    And this is exactly why I only order my gear from Razer directly. There are far too many people trying to rip off Razer products and rip off Razer fans. The only time I may buy a ripoff is if the Razer Turret is ever produced (since I don't think Razer will do it). It'd be a neat replica to have on display in my room :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    Sadly, I actually fell into this trick and paid for the shipping. I'm currently opening a dispute on Paypal right now though as I am typing this. The sponsored ad on Facebook seemed legit, and I wouldn't think that scams would be on the sponsored ads. I guessed wrong. But after doing some digging and trying to track my package I got curious to see if anyone made a post about this scam. And now I'm reassured of what I had just paid for. Let's see how my dispute/case on Paypal goes.
    Thanks for posting!
