    Just seen it's Western Union only so I guess it's best to steer clear.

    Whois doesn't tell you much, apart from this domain was only created on the 30th November. IMO, don't go anywhere near it. :)

    From a quick google search I found this site: http://db.aa419.org/fakebanksview.php?key=11579
    I am only providing this for information, I cannot claim to know about the accuracy of this website's info, but it was the only website mentioning coretechworld.com listed on Google that was not simply linking to a sale listing on the site.

    It's definetly a con. You can barely get a core consol for that price, let alone a premium with 10 games.

    If it sounds too good to be true, it always is...

    You are all right. I think we should delete this thread in case any unsuspecting fool decides to take the plunge. I would feel too guilty.

    Why not ask this lady, she seems to be the sole listed contact for the domain:

    Quite what someone with that address is doing running a retail website out of Italy, I don't know.

    According to Google, that phone number is owned by the Warner family of 1957 REDCOACH RD, ALLISON PARK, PITTSBURG, PA.

    Anyone have any contacts on AVS who could look them up?
