    Is this deal legit?

    I just found this tv (Vizio VX32L) for $408 on a website called yourdigitalelectronics. I have never heard of this site. Would u think this is a safe buy? Because if it is, I definately want to buy one.

    Here is the link:

    The prices on this site is ri$#@!! They have CoD4 for ps3 for $36? Does this site have some sort of bidding system?

    When you add the stuff to cart, and then proceed to checkout, it says you have to have over 500 USD in order to buy it.

    They don't accept credit cards? But they do accept Western Union money transfer?! Hmmmm, I smell a scam.

    Yeah some of the prices on consoles and computers just seem way too low end. I kept looking for something that said that these products were refurbished or used. I've never even heard of them. Plus while I understand, I guess, the whole credit card thing it doesn't make sense. I've never heard of an online retailer that doesn't at least use paypal. It's all very weird.

    First thing you should do if you suspect even the slightest thing is run the site by resellerratings.com.

    For example, that site is bad. You can read this poor sap's experience.

    Yeah that sounds pretty cut and dry. Don't freakin' order anything on there, unless you just really don't need the money , but if that's the case just toss it out your window. It'd be about the same thing. You'd never see it again and you'd end up with nothing for it.

    I don't know about Australia, but yes, it's legal here. Otherwise the site would have been closed down. A friend showed me this site a few months ago for a good laugh. Back then they used to show the faces even, lol.. You aren't actually "buying" the girl, it is a bride price. It just seems weird to us because it's not a custom where we live, but it's like a dowry. Read the profiles, and they all say 1 of 3 things.

    1: "our daughter was overly mature and wanted to get married young."

    2: "We are poor and need the money."

    3: "I got married young and my daughter wants to also."

    And, the youngest girl I found was 13, but that was when I was first shown the site, it's been a while.

    Besides, right on the main page it says no sex or the discussion of it allowed.

    Where's Chris Hansen when you need him?

    I'd buy a girl... and then release her into the wild. After some stuff, of course.

    ummm... if you're technically married to someone waaaaay underage in another country... would it still be considered statutory rape here in the states?... becasue I know some Asians get married really young too, so what's the deal with that?

    anyways, back on topic - anything that sounds too good to be true, unless it's from a major well-known retailer (ie bf deals), probably is.
