Fake advertisements for electronics.


...ok, there. If you find any dead ones now, please tell me. Otherwise I think I have a pretty decent automated way to clear out the dead ones, and find zombies.

That's about 611 live scam sites out of approximately 2000 collected over the course of a year.

The majority of these scam sites are on a small number of primarily US hosts, notably softlayer.com, take2hosting.com, dcsmanage.com, godaddy.com, panamaserver.com

Not sure about his web

Hey all,

I´ve found this web site by searching diytrade.com and i did order before from china but never a branded electronics like those i´ve found here. They sell by pieces ... mangguantiantrade.com

I´ve asked them for few prizes so here is copy of email.
Mail actually came from this site : yongbianqu.com

here it is :

Apple iMac 27'' Intel Core i7 2.93GHz 4GB 1TB 250$/pc
Yeah right. I think that if you check with the Apple company they will assure you they do not need to reduce prices like this.

In Australia they are just under $A3,000.
Why would a large reputable company like Apple risk upsetting their many retailers by allowing a Chinese company to sell their product below cost?



Thanks for reply, it makes common sense.
Sadly somewhere inside i was hoping that i´ll be able to buy stuff from china at good prizes, but this prizes shocked me as 250$ instead of 3000$ is ridiculous, iphone4G - 150$ It should be 40$ comparing to iMac lol

Any way here is last mail i´ve receive:

Thanks for quick reply,
Unfortunetally i was trying to call Your company & number you gave is wrong is number for SIMAG ELECTRIC INTERNATIONAL LIMITED which has nothing to do with your company.

Sorry to say that but it look like this site of Yours is just a SCAM.

I wish prizes like that will be true
Thanks for Your time replying (scamming)

ones i actually have send them mail asking for :

1.business license 企业法人营业执照

2.tax registration card 税务登记证

3.Certificate of Organization Code 组织机构代码证

I´ve never get respond, and normally at this hour they respond in minutes, after 24h on net and all scam forums/whole sellers, again i guess there is no hope for brand electronic equipment for a bargain :)

Reality comes true, lol ;)

I found this website through DIYtrade and made the enquiry.
Subsequently I order from this website, and once they got the money, there was no response after this.

what can you tell me about iph5.com is it fraude.
are they criminals?
thank you

hello Katherijne and welcome to antifraud,

This is what I found

"Zhang XiaoHui" owns about105 other domains
Domain Name : iph5.com
PunnyCode : iph5.com
Creation Date : 2011-02-18 16.39.29
Updated Date : 2011-02-18 16.39.29

1. So a very new website, which is a red flag for scam.

Credit Card / Visa / MasterCard / JCB Card
You need to pay from your Credit Card / Visa / MasterCard / JCB Card to Western Union, you can do this online! Western union company is the biggest, fastest and best international payment company in the world. The website is www.westernunion.com
Receiver's First name (Given name):
Receiver's Second Name: (Last name or Family name):
Address: Xi'An City, shanxi Province, China
When you finish the payment, please must provide us:
1,MTCN (Money Transfer Control Number)
2,Sender's full name
3,Currency and amount;
4, Payment sent from which country
We can't take credit card without though Western Union.

2. It looks like they accept creditcards but they only accept Western Union, another red flag.

3. iph5Global Holding Ltd, I can not find this company anywhere, so serious doubts if it exists.
