    Pandora fake site? pandoraeuk

    Hello, this is not a deal, just be aware that this site looks legit and has popped up on facebook. However my bank's fraud department contacted me and cancelled my card, because this website is based in Shenzhen China.The prices look too good to be true , so use your own judgement. Just hope nobody gets scammed using this site

    This should be in misc or something but as an FYI the official site is pandora.net.

    install the Web of trust addon

    *looks at web address* Yep, fake.

    The prices look too good to be true , so use your own judgement. 

    Eh? So its fake, your bank told you it's fake but you want people to use their own judgement.

    Then again people are greedy and gullible so will fall hook line and sinker. Serves them right.

    I'm still waiting for that Ugandan prince to send me my £500 million for lending him my bank account details.

    thanks for the heads up. I've just been conned by a different web site (3dscarduk.com) to buy my son's Christmas present, no order confirmation, sent order enquiry email and has no reply, then find a transaction from China sport shop on my credit card. Had to cancel my credit card.

    With the festive season, I guess there are a lot of these dodgy sites, so be wary.

    Yes I was gullible, my missus bending my ear put a few things in the basket.Bit harsh you saying that people deserve to be ripped off.

    I have no sympathy for you on this one. You were trying to buy a card that allowed you to steal Nintendo games, making you as big a thief as the guys that conned you.
    Serves you right.

    ​what a no#@ead ! how do you know they wasn't buying a memory card or buying a 3ds card to enable them to watch films on there console.
    you know nothing about these people so dont judge them until you do.
    they could be magistrates in court for all you know !

    the cards themselves are now illegal to purchase so the 'i want to home brew and watch movies' doesn't change that

    It's a pretty good rule of thumb that if any website includes words other than the name Pandora (or any other branded name) in the URL, ie, pandoradiscount, pandorasaleitems etc, then there's a high chance it's a fake website.

    As already stated the cards are illegal and we all know the only purpose people buy these cards is to pirate games.
    As for buying a memory card, that's the worst excuse ever.
    Oh I'll go to some dodgy Chinese website to buy a micro sd card when I could so easily get one from Tesco etc. Dream on chump.

    O'mighty migavupe, please forgive this unworthy sinner.

    Firstly, thanks lollypopiee for your support. I'm not going to lie about the purpose of my purchase, the card is as migavupe has mentioned, but not entirely without moral ground.

    I have no reasons to give excuses, but I can honestly say that I have always purchased the originals if my son spends more than an hour on the game.

    My post was not to feel sorry for myself, but to warn others if they are considering using that website. It seems that you like to make judgement of someone you don't know. If it makes you feel better, yeah I deserved it, but try to get off your high moral ground. I'm sure you must have watched streamed TV or movies off dodgy sites. If you haven't, I'll pick my ticket to hell later.

    Your honesty is refreshing.
    I cant condone game piracy, but thanks.

    Bit of a public service announcement before that thread comes up again for Christmas.

    For the love of cats don't buy any Michael Kors stuff from dodgy Facebook links either. Like this:

    Not just that but any popular worldwide brand with "uk" in the web address also screams scam to me.

    Is this a fake website? I've ordered an item but not received any info about it!! Wen I log into my account it says successfull?? Plz help

    Yes it is fake.I doubt that you will receive your items, or in the unlikely event that you do, they will be knock off's

    Good lord. Have you never done anything remotely illegal ? And if you say no, then you sir are a liar.

    Because someone stated they got ripped off buying from a ripoff site is no reason to have a go at them.

    To many Dudley do rights on here with opinions that no one wants to hear let alone cares about.

People have been duped in the past with site names like sales.pandora.com and they see the pandora.net and take it that the site is legitimate.Only way to be sure is to look up the sites information and see how long it has been around, and check the site for a contact number (NON MOBILE) and contact it.:{

    I just find it funny that someone complains about being stolen from while attempting to buy something that allows them to steal.

    I remember when i first started using the tinterweb, must've been at least 19 years or so ago now. I went to a shopping site and put some products in the basket, i then immediately shayte my pants thinking i've bought them and my parents would get billed for it..some how..some way. lol. That was one nervous 2 weeks or so.

    you wot?
    sales. is a word other than pandora is it not? so a chance not legit

    the only way to be actually sure is to use the official reseller list

    fixed your quote as well (_;)

    Thanks brilly. Mobile auto correct is not the best.

    No I mean that there are increasing ingenious ways to get people with sites that have the main URL name in the web address. I see lots of emails now with the website address of paypalmail.paypal.com and people fall for.it. It's a real problem for real honest people who are trying to get their foot in the door with an internet shop and being called crooked because they haven't been around for years. Web domain registration should be a tougher registration process where the user must submit bank details etc and provide passport or birth certificate details and images before being issued with a seven day wait for a domain name following checks. This would cut internet website fraud down and countries like Nigeria who are the worst for web fraud should be banned from UK browsers by either the browser vendors or by the way the uk government blocks torrent sites.

    each of those still fall under the 'word other than pandora' bracket

    Eventually got my
    'Pandora' bracelet.Cheap rubbish.Don't usually fall for this sort of thing,but the site did look genuine and I didn't do my usual search of reviews........more fool me.
    will try to report to fraud people
