    Beskas.com

    I don't know if this is a scam or not, but it does look very fishy. They only except money transfer from western union and e-gold. There prices ore very good. Does anyone know if this site is legit or not. I found a page with information that they do not disclose on there website.

    First scam red flag.

    A normal purchase at Beskas can save our customers up to 40-80%!
    Second scam red flag.

    Our warehouse is located in Spain at:

    Calle Barbieri 128
    Madrid, Madrid 28004
    Spain

    Our retail location in Toulon, United States is located at:

    1210 E.Jefferson
    Toulon, IL 61483
    United States
    Third scam red flag. This arrangement does not make sense.

    Conclusion: 100% sure scam.

    Wire transfer only is a big giveaway, that is the same as sending cash.

    Yes it is a scam. You will lose your money. beskas.com is a scam website with fake prices designed to lure foolish people who think they can get a bargain from a cheesy low rent website.

    I've had Beskas.com added to the Online Scam Stores list/thread at ResellerRatings.

    If you have been ripped off by this group you can file a complaint with your local police. You will most likely never get your money back however.

    You can also notify Pricefish.com too have them removed from their price search engine. The false address and the payment info should do the trick, don't know as I've never delt with Pricefish before. I've already covered ResellerRatings.com. I am also working on notifying Shopping.com and Pricegrabber.com. to be on the look out for them in their search engines.

    You can also notify the registrar, Domainpeople.com, about the false address, this may get the website shut down for fraudulent WhoIs information.
