    £10 minimum 100 orders.

    Wow...what a deal they sell £50+ retail

    BUT:

    Wire transfer only
    All three "businesmen" based at the same address (London)
    Too good to be true

    I asked to meet in person or pay via Paypal..no reply. I am taking the p** really to see what excuses they come up with. If they really think I am going to wire £1k+ to a Chinese bank they can come and look at my fairies in the garden. Probably on this forum actually!

    101% scam! I wonder how many will not see it though? Blinded by greed and stupidity.

    I wish peopel would stop thinking ripping people off (not even deceiving them) but completely ripping them off, isn't being asmart busienssperson. Still. Seems ok on the Net these days!

    Smart moves, seems like the product will either be complete garbage or it's a full on scam. Careful meeting people, I know nothing about you but unless you're that guy from Taken you could end up getting your butt kicked and mugged at best or sold into a lifetime of sexual slavery at worst, a high price to pay for a Furbie I feel. Good luck man, entertain us with their response.

    probably fake chinise furbys, which would tie in with the 15 dollar price they are going for on the chinese wholesale pages.

    I didn't even know people still wanted these, thought they died out back in the 90s.

    I do quite a lot of business with the Chinese and the main issue is that most of them (not all) only see the short term profit of closing 1 sale. They want you to buy the biggest quantity possible, send it to you (it probablry isn't really a scam but..) and then don't give a shit for any problems you may have in the future.. That's just the way it works here.. its frustrating, but you have to find the good suppliers!

    well not one replied (same person) so it seems it was 100% scam. They wanted me to wire £1k and then I got nothing.

    Shocking way to do bizz. How short term is that? Small time crooks/ parasites.

    Hey that's actually got me "excited" :)

    and all it took not to get scammed was tiny bit of effort and some common sense.
