Is DX affiliated this new flashcart site?

  • ziffius Wednesday, March 31, 2010 7:01 PM Reply
    A new website has popped up [Removed]. They only sell DS flashcarts. All the descriptions, images, prices and stock codes have been copied from DealExtreme.

    On their website they have the address DX put on their packages as the return address for their RMA's.

    ************
    "Room 225-226, Block B, Focal lndustrial Centre
    21 Man Lok Street
    Hung Hom, Kowloon
    HONG KONG"

    This is the exact same address on the DX label on packages i've received from DX.

    Is this site somehow affiliated with DX (to get round the DCMA issue) or is it just another scam/ ripoff? If this site is trying to pass themselves off as DX, we need to know or people will get scammed.

    The've now just changed this address from DX's, to another in Hong Kong.

    The previous page with them using DX's address as their RMA address is still in google cache, so I wasn't BS'ing.

    If they have ripped DX's site, DX needs to go after them with a pitch fork. On some of their images you can see the've removed the DealExtreme/ Volumerate watermarks in Photoshop.

    I know that's what it says, but their whois record says

    "Creation date: 07 Dec 2009 01:56:17"

    That's not long before DX removed the cart's.

    I thought the 2007 might be a reference to DX. But they could have just put that there so a lemming (like me) could come along and think someone from DX might have something to do with the site.

    Someone has posted a picture of a package received from this 'new' site. The packaging looks very similar to DX's, even has the grant signature on the customs declaration.

    If it's not DX, it could be another company using DX to dropship.
