CHINA represent! azn invazn baby

but yeah, it seems like a scam scenario
have you ever bought from them before? im guessing no?

yeah paypal'd be a nice way to protect your money, are there reliable ways of communicating with them?
any other ways of paying for suspicious purchases? ideas anyone?

I have contacted them VIA phone, the guy speaks ok english.

He said the he can't do paypal but he can do T/T, wire transfers, in person cash or check.

I get 1 year warranty.+ 1 year more with him.
I have never bought from this guy in specific, but i have bought from this website before, 7 good deals-1 rip off.

I'm probobly going to get 3 for starters useing T/T, if i get scrued over then i'll have a motivation to go break his legs...

of the options you've given, it seems safest to go in person, but idk if you're willing to spend ~$1000 for a plane ticket (round trip) just to make sure that he's doing the real deal.

but i mean... its up to you man, if you get the wrong models, or completely screws you over... all i can do is translate for you
