I personally tried this site, this guy posts on here as user WORLDSMEDIASHOP and says cheap laptops blah blah blah.

Well yes, they are cheap, but it's all a lie.

http://www.worldsmediashop.wordpress.com

I made this blog to post about it and already have another person telling me they have a similar story so I am going to add theirs to the blog as well.

Anyone who has used this site please share with me, I want it to be pressured into to being shut down.

Please, do not deal with this guy.

this guy was going to sell me a 16GB iphone,But after talking to him It seems to good to be true...his prices were way too low to be realistic.But the one thing that caught my attention was that he had paypal but no ebay account,That is what set off the red light.

Yep we had a brief discussion about this last week here in his thread. I think it was summed up as "no one sells a new laptop for $800 less than retail".

Many were tempted because of the low price. If it sounds too good to be true, then it is.

Oops. The Blog is what I made in order for people to see my story. The actual site is http://www.worldsmediashop.com

And I am glad to see that other people notice this also and agree. The guy is a scam and trust me, I am using every resource I have to find out more about him because I am going to make sure he gets what he deserves.

I did NOT lose any money, but he wasted about 3 weeks of my time and I hate having to call me credit card company to cancel things like this which I had to do.

Well at least you did not lose any money. When people get scammed, they lose money.

I lost money through a similar website. But I could not get anything back because i actually did money order.

I am very sorry to hear that. Yeah money orders are NEVER safe, I refuse to do them because scamming with them has become so popular.

Yep....I too am a victim. I was really sketchy about doing it in the first place but after talking to him through a lot of emails and on AIM I felt more comfortable and made a bad choice. I paid with a CC and filed a dispute for the charges just now.

This is a huge lesson learned. Trust your gut.

Although the basic forum rules do apply, as noted in the announcement at the top of the forum, we do not police the members that sell or buy items here.

Just to make this perfectly clear, this forum is to be used AT YOUR OWN RISK.
