No landline number rings alarm bells....

I don't know why people just don't trust their instincts. If it looks dodgy enough for you to ask, and the prices appear to be too cheap...............

The word 'scam' is used a lot on the results - just stating a fact & not making any judgements obviously.

NB : there are a number of other websites with a similar name & they obviously shouldn't be confused with the details registered against the site in question here ie > buydirect.myshopify.com/

I think I won't buy with them because it looks to be dodgy THANKS SIGMA !!

From their "blog"

"am Richard Wallace from Ire land i order 15unit of n900 via there email and my order has been process

Ire Land my **** - that terminology stinks of Chinese. Why the hell would someone need to write on their blo that the order had been processed?!
