    hi,
    I'm from Italy and I have found surfing the net this shop:

    http://www.orangecorporation.co.uk

    they sell plasma monitor
    laptop and mobile phone.

    their price are very low and to tell the truth too much low...
    nobody knows this shop?
    Thay say that they have 4 stores in london, and you can find the address on their web site.
    Can somebody check :)?


    well if someone has any news about this shop let me know :)
    thanks

    Looks dodgy and the prices do seem way too low...I would avoid it unless someone can vouch for them!!!

    There's an old adage that if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.

    To quote the payment instructions:

    I'd make the following observations:

    • directory enquiries do not have a telephone number for them
    • there isn't a telephone number on their web site
    • basic deal is: we send you something via UPS, you send us your money via Western Union
    • I read a lot of UK hi-fi mags and have never seen them advertise
    • they don't accept credit cards - almost unheard of for a legit retailler in the UK

    Don't be fooled into thinking that your money is protected if you pay by credit card via Western Union. You aren't protected by the credit card because you're using it to pay for money, not goods.

    The only way I would buy from these people is if they brought the goods to my house, plugged them in, left them with me for a week to check they're not rejects and then provided documentary evidence that they are legit.

    Of course, that's just me being cyncial. They could just be running a plasma charity to make sure that everyone who's deserving gets the plasma they deserve. :laugh:

    In a nutshell, for what I've seen, payments "westernunion only" are just scums.
    No more no less.

    I like the dodgy 'obviously fake' post codes in the Store locations section.

    HA8 0SY - is in Edgeware, no number 17 listed
    NW10 0HY - is the North Circular Road
    NW10ON - does not exist
    HY90WE - does not exist

    Great pricing! I'll take 3 of their 84" NEC video walls - at this price it will be cheaper than buying the expensive wallpaper! :laugh:

    It depresses me to think that someone may actually be gullible enough to give this person money

    Surely Orange, the phone company, would be all over this if they knew about it? Anyone work for Orange? Nudge, nudge, wink , wink.

    Montecarlo drive, Las Vegas, tell me this guy's not a hood?

    Smartpages for Wray Landreth, Las Vegas, Nevada:
    Your search returned no results.

    There were no matching business types for the search "orange" in "Las Vegas".

    At best a desperate gambler hurting to pay back his bookies before they do him in.

    Buyer beware!
