Anybody ever buy anything from a website called Alatteap.com?
« on: August 08, 2018, 06:08:23 pm »
Under the heading of something that looks too good to be true, generally is:  I saw a reference somewhere that Shoei was closing out some graphic versions of the GT-Air, by far my favorite helmet.

When I googled the helmet this website came up.

Their price is less than half the 'normal' closeout price, so my  question is: anyone ever deal with these folks?  TIA

Never heard of them. No where on the site could I find any location information or phone number. I did see where they sell shoes and bikinis though. With no actual contact info I personally would not due business with them. Might be perfectly legit.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

It sure seems too good to be true based on the prices.  I wish I knew for sure because those are some awesome deals.

Hiding behind a privacy website provider so it seems shady to me. You may get stuff, but is it Chinese knock off?...stolen? or will your money just vanish? :-\

I've also seen sites like this where you order stuff but what you are actually ordering are drugs, where you send an email through an anonymous email service, to one place and they tell you
what each item's equivalent is in a quantity and type of drug and then you order on a different site but instead of the item showing up you get the associated drugs instead. This isolates the money from the drugs. However usually the prices are higher vs value of item to discourage accidental business for the items shown, so in this case it seems unlikely. They prefer stuff that is hard to access the value of (eyes of beholder things) like art prints and ceramics.

Or they could also be "seconds", or returns that are NOT new, but sold as if they are.  That seems to be another common scam.

Man, the internet is a wild place alright. Cheers for the heads up. I haven't had anything like that go wrong yet, but you can never let your guard down I guess.
