    What's the old saying:
    If it's too good to be true....

    What are the chances of getting 3 emails from 3 different companies at around 05:30 this morning, offering ridiculous
    prices on goods?

    Sure as a retailer, I get many offers from many companies, but I find this very hard to believe. Here are just some of
    the products that also offer free courier shipping:

    Apple Products
    Apple Iphone 5 16GB/32GB/64GB -------------$110/$120/$130
    Apple Iphone 4S 16GB/32GB/64GB-------------$90/$100/$110
    Apple Iphone 4 16GB/32GB/64GB--------------$70/$80/$90
    Apple MacBook Pro MD318LL/A --------------$270.00
    Apple MacBook Air i5 13.3 MC965ZH/A------- $230
    Apple MacBook Air 11.6 i7 MD845LL/A--------$325

    Samsung Not II 32GB -----------------------$120
    SAMSUNG GALAXY S III 16GB/32GB-------------$90/$100
    Samsung Galaxy S 4 16GB/32GB/64GB-------$110/$120/$130
    Blackberry Z10-----------------------------$130
    Blackberry bold touch 9900 ----------------$100
    HTC windows phone 8X ----------------------$65
    HTC one X ---------------------------------$98
    HTC one S ---------------------------------$65
    Samsung Galaxy Nexus gt-19250------------- $70


    I kid you not, within minutes of each other:

    http://www.szfuzhuo.com
    http://www.top-estore.com

    Their wholesaler in common, appears to be Shenzhen baolijing electronic CO,.LTD

    The prices look made up to me. Pluck a silly figure out of the air.

    Comments?

    Cheers Don...

    I ended up getting a similar offer from 8 different companies with 8 different web sites, then multiple emails started.
    As I change my email address every year, I filtered them at my server for now.

    I figure a lot of people will be hit hard from this mob, either with mass emails or by putting their hands in their
    pockets. Google brings in some interesting results on the domains.

    Deception site! They stole from me extortion of 1000 dollars. Gave fictitious
    numbers of sending goods. Goods didn't send, simply took away money. I on the
    brink of suicide. I don't become soon, be they are damned. Swindlers destroyed
    all I wash life.
