Sunday, May 29, 2011 extreme caution advised

I advice EXTREME CAUTION when using the website

they do not provide any tangible contact information, they do not have solid reputation, their FAQ section is not working, they claim to provide worldwide(?) delivery within 7-10 days!!!??? (perhaps they use superman and he has a backlog of orders), they only accept paypal at least in my case, although they claim to accept major credit cards.
they got no product reviews although their site has been registered since october 2010.
their logo is damn crappy for official logo:

for all purposes I would stay away from them, or try and buy something really cheap ie 1$ to see if they actually honour their deals, before moving on to more expensive stuff.

the website whois info

MR Adam David

I am MR Adam David. a computer scientist working with central bank of lome togo.I just started work with central bank of lome togo. and I came across your file which was marked X and your released disk painted RED, I took time to study it and found out that you have paid VIRTUALLY all fees and but the fund was not released to you.

The most annoying thing is that they won't tell you the truth that on no account will they ever release the fund to you,instead they allow you spend money unnecessarily,I do not intend to work here all the days of my life, I can release this fund to you if you can certify me of my security.

I needed to do this because you need to know the statues of your Funds and cause for the delay,Please this is like a Mafia setting in lome togo, you may not understand it because you are not a Togolaise. The only thing needed to release this fund is the Anti drug/terrorist clearance certificate which will be tendered to any of your nominated bank and the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE(IRS)for clearance of the transfered amount in your account.

Once the Anti drug /terrorist clearance certificate is obtained funds will immediately reflect in your bank within 10 Minutes,the certificate is all that is needed to complete this transaction.

Note that the actual funds is valued at $15.5 MILLION USD and the president made a compensation fund release for all unpaid beneficiary valued at $10 million usd.

Απάτες με δήθεν email από την εθνική τράπεζα / National Bank of Greece scam emails

Πολλά emails δήθεν προερχόμενα από την Εθνική Τράπεζα , αλλά στην πραγματικότητα είναι απάτες με μόνο στόχο την απόσπαση των κωδικών pin και των στοιχείων του ανυποψίαστου πελάτη της.

διάφορα emails που έχω λάβει κατά καιρούς δεν διαθέτουν σωστά ελληνικά σοβαρή ένδειξη για την πλαστότητα του αποστολέα και των ύποπτων προθέσεων του. Επειδή όμως μπορεί να βελτιωθούν στη γλώσσα, καλό είναι να μην βάζουμε τα στοιχεία μας όπου να'ναι.

Διάφορα ημεηλ που λαμβάνω έρχοναι από:

Πολλά από αυτά τα μηνύματα λένε για την ΕθΝΟcash plus ή έχουν άλλους ευφάνταστους τρόπους να παρασύρουν τα θύματα όπως και διαγωνισμούς!

το κακό είναι ότι από ότι φαίνεται οι μέθοδοι τους λειτουργούν για αυτό και συνεχίζουν απτόητοι... ΠΡΟΣΟΧΗ ΛΟΙΠΟΝ

Barrister SCAM

Dear Friend,

I know that this mail will come to you as a surprise as we have never met before, but need not to worry as I am using the only secured and confidential medium available to seek for your foreign assistance in a business. I am contacting you independently of my investigation and no one is informed of this communication.

I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of $25m U.S Dollars (Twenty Five Million U.S Dollars)immediately to your private account. The money has been here in our Bank lying dormant for nine good years now without anybody coming for the claim of it. I want to release the money to you as the nearest person to our deceased customer (the account owner) who died a long with his supposed NEXT OF KIN since August 1997.

The Banking ethics here does not allow such money to stay more than 15 years, because the money will be recalled to the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. Upon receipt of your reply indicating your interest in this transaction, I will send you full details on how the business will be executed.

Please indicate your willingness by sending the below information for more clarification and easy communication.

1) Full name.................................
2) Age.......................................
3) Address...................... ............
4) Occupation................................
5) Mobile Telephone number...................
6) Country...................................

Please keep this proposal as a top secret and delete if you are not interested.

Trusting to hear from you immediately.

Thanks for your interest.
Yours faithfully.

Mr.Bari Shan
