Well I was looking for a tv to get for my place and I came across their site through google shopping thinking it was from google shopping I thought it was reputable. I placed an order which they made me foward them an Amazon gift card (which threw up a huge red flag). Everytime I asked them a question they replied quickly by email, then I asked them when the product will arrive once again they replyed saying in a week. After I asked why my order still says pending on their site and if I can get a tracking number to track my order no reply from them its been over 2 weeks. My product didnt come neither has an email reply. The site turned out to be a complete scam.

Google just indexes shopping like they index every other web page. Just because its listed on google doesnt mean a site is legit. Im not trying to make you feel even worse or anything but when you plan on shopping on a site youve never heard of before the best bet is to take the web address, search google for not only that address but search for say electrotechzone.com reviews or electrotechzone.com scam

And always and I mean always check http://www.resellerratings.com if the place isnt even listed then its a good bet to stay away.

Thing was acidbaby this site just got created a month ago so it was fairly new. Also they had a reviews but the irony of that was it was on a another scam review site. Do not trust reviews from merchantcircle.com they will not let you post honest reviews.

I guess I shouldn't buy stereo equipment out of the back of a van either.
