Found 28th Jan 2009
A colleaugue at work has just purchased the DS Lite Bundle featured on this webpage :

waltergames.co.uk/ind…asp

But i reckon this is a Scam site as the only contact details are linked to a PO Box in Guernsey.

It also has other link to other sites that look the same :

avrilgaming.co.uk/
foxtergames.co.uk/

and the website also seems to have been generated using an online site called :

ekmpowershop.com/ind…asp which is £20 month to rent.

Anyone else ever used or know of this site ?? Is it a SCAM ?

If you Google the Postcode then you'll find the business is run from a house.

And the site has only just been set up.

Dodgy as hell i'd say, the same site has been seen on a scam one for ages, by which I mean the same layout/template just different names, it appears to be a copy of the powerplay site, these guys have some balls to keep going like this, Id say before one is closed the next is ready to roll.

My thoughts exactly. It looks like an out-of-the-box web site.

while surfing around it redirected to another domain [url]www.avrilgaming.co.uk[/url]

looks similar to previous post.

i reckon this is an automated script, that buys domain names, hosts a ready made site and hopes for some suckers.

I've just sent my work colleague a text telling him to cancel his CC transaction !

THANKS ALL !!!! :thumbsup:

Repped All.

hmmm. looks like theyve posted again on here (post now removed) with too good to be true wii prices...

AVOID!

I bought the same DS Lite deal for £69.99 on 02/02/09 but have asked my credit card provider to cancel the payment. Why did my AVG internet security tick the website as OK ????????? !!

I have just been sucked into this trap, I tried to purchase a DS bundle from them and got the decline message, this aroused my suspicions as I know there was nothing wrong with the details I entered.....

I canceled my card straight away.

I'm going to call this Linda Huckins tonight and see what she knows about the whole thing.

I can't believe I was sucked in..

**DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING FROM THEIR WEB SITE PLEASE**

As an idiot who has been shafted by these people I can confirm that you don't want to go anywhere near this website or any of its sister websites. I did and it cost me £400. Looking back it is clearly very dodgy and even a very poor website and I was even suspicious but still fell for it.

An expensive lesson learned.
