  1. And they take credit cards including “Discovery” – this is so obviously a foreign scammer selling vaporware it’s amazing. You’d be lucky (if you somehow managed to get your money to them) if they shipped you even a box, much less a box with any computer parts inside it.

  2. its a hoax company… I called the phone number that they list and its just a Fax noise for both numbers. If anyone is daring and rich enough try and buy one and see what you get. I love the accessories you can order “World’s Highest Quality Digital Camera Beautifully-Crisp WideScreen 8.61MegaPixel 848×480 Video 5.6X Optical Zoom” doesn’t even list a brand. Worlds best camera? wow a sucker born every minute

  3. actually alibaba.com is a very legit site. Its very useful for startup companies building hardware and such. As to the clone, its a joke, but Apple can bust them for selling OSX if they dont have a license and GM can sue them for using “G6”

  4. Alibaba is a business directory site that’s very popular in the far east. some scammer pretended to be our company and said that they were selling cheap ipods and xboxes. it took me days to get to the bottom of it and have it removed.

    looks like this kind of thing is rampant on there.
