    You know when you are on CL looking through local classifieds you see a brand new phone with a watermark of a crappy website full of grammatical errors and such, yet the description is something completely different.

    Example:
    http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/ele/4007291985.html

    I've been seeing variations of these for a long time, would NEVER order from there, but just curious if anyone has any experience or heard from these so called Chinese electronic websites. Their sites all full of grammatical errors, are messy, and generally just suck.

    You would be suprised, there are alot of dumb people in the world that would fall for it. Not a ton of people but there are people that still fall for it. You have to remember they wouldnt be doing it if it didnt work. But yeah I agree with you, you have to be really dumb for fall for these crappy sites

    So they are just straight up scam? Or do they send maybe fakes/copies? I logged onto the help chat and got a guy and said "Why is your website so messy and scammy looking?" He said "you are wrong!!!!!!!!"
