Found 11th Jan
I've seen a game on dvd-maze.com that I want to buy but I've not heard of site before.

Is it a safe company to use? They accept PayPal according to their site

I did some research on that site yesterday and it had scam written all over it.
According to Whois.com website registered 8/12/17 with no registrant details.
AVOID
Just looked up ‘their’address of 20-22 Wenlock Road and found this Company formations
You would have thought these fraudsters would have tried harder to hide the fact the website is a scam

Thanks looked dodgy but thought I'd check first before ruling it out
Just read t@cs which basically covers them to advertise a game like red dead 2 at 24.99 ps4 shipping 3-5 days(a game that hasn't even got a release date and will be around £45-50)you pay for it at that price but then they can change that at any point AVOID AVOID

Did you have to request a refund or did pay pal do it automatically?
Just a heads up to any newbie just joining up to HUKD, firstly welcome to our little community and secondly keep Whois.com on your homepage ready to use, just bung in the website address and when it comes up as unavailable, then click on whois and it will at least give you when the website was registered and the registrants details. From there you can determine if it looks a safe bet etc

What did you say in your email?
Because I opted to pay via PayPal and only after I receive the product they cancelld the transaction.

Hopefully no one paid by card?

I just explained that I had payed via paypal but after further research became aware that the website seemed like a scam since other people had a similar experience to me then requested if i could cancel the transaction, hope this helps

I was just considering ordering from here. Persona 5 for £25, seemed too good to be true. Strange that they appear under Google Shopping results. I thought that was just for trusted retailers.

I thought they were shady because if you look around literally every game they have listed is at 24.95. Suspicious.
I ordered from these also because it appeared in the google shopping search results I didnt Think anything of it until I checked my paypal and it was a personal PayPal account name and email address rather than the business name
(Abele Fiorentino elsinaedmondaai@gmail.com)
as soon as I saw this it rang alarm bells, it also wouldn’t let me log into the account on the website so I reported them through PayPal as an authorised transaction, explained in the comments section That after purchasing it the email address was a personal rather than a company email and after searching I’ve found this to be a scam and would like a refund within less than 24hours PayPal refunded me x
Oh and I would also change your PayPal password too just incase there website stores any details as you payed via there site
Just like to say a big thank you to all the newbies that have joined up to try and help others out on this thread. Refreshing change to those who just join up to get a sun saver holiday code or meerkat movie code.

If PayPal are being bombarded for refunds, I don’t know why they just don’t freeze the account?

I bought a PS4 game from that site a couple of days ago and I've just received a message from PayPal saying the purchase has been cancelled by the merchant and no money will be taken from my account.
Made an order about Thursday, even used a backup card because it seemed a bit too good to be true. I only used them because of the Google listing in the shopping tab. Should have researched a bit more at the time. I did a missing item claim on Saturday to cancel the order and have done an unauthorised purchase claim today calling them a scam and linking to here.

Those responsible are probably switching the paypal account on the website as the account my order went to is different to what was given above. Makes it more difficult for paypal to drop the hammer.
Same as above, I placed an order a few days ago. I suspected something wasn't quite right so fortunately I used the Pay After Delivery option on PayPal. After reading this I took a more thorough look at the site and it seems dodgy as hell. There isn't even a 'contact us' option. I've opened a claim now with PayPal to try and get the seller recognised as fraudulent although I fortunately have not lost any money.
i contacted paypal regarding this and Theyve said i need to ring them, hopefully get some results glad everyones had their money refunded
I also ordered from this site, used paypal and have already opened a case.
think this is happened to me to sadly I find this forum a while after placing the order & it all ready being refunded I have to admit I thought the pricing was a little to good :-(
I've literally just opened a case up through paypal today about dvd-maze.com as ive had no emails etc and was also caught out by the prices but i opted for paypal just so i was covered
I wish I’d read this before ordering. Not much hope of my order arriving then, uckily I paid with PayPal
if you ever check a websites contact details and its only an email address and not a contact number = 99% scam

Is there a way to report them to Google?

I almost ordered from them because they were on the Google shopping but luckily checked here first. As there prices are generally lower than most places they will be getting a lot of traffic from Google shopping so a lot of people will be at risk

Good luck getting your money back to those who have been tricked
