Beware of possible scam:


As you can see from the site, their company is located differently from where they're sending out their item. This company list their information as:

7825 Rue Morgan
Ocean Springs MS 39564
United States American
Phone number: +1 (888)768-592

In which I've showed that there's no registered company by that name on the Secretary of State to that address. Furthermore their phone number is never answered and if you google, belongs to some Seafood wholesale.
Then you have the OP show you that his package was sent out from a legitimate company, not MagasChori,

Chicago Electronics Distributors
1862 BELVIDERE RD GRAYSLAKE, IL


So what's going on here?
This MagasChori site is a scam in which they take your billing info and keeps the money.They're using stolen credit cards to buy their items from other companies such as Chicago Electronics Distributors and puts in your shipping info as the buyer with the stolen cards as billing. They would have collected money you paid through Paypal. When they get the money, they quickly transfer it out of their account. If you don't get your item, it is because their sourced company in which they're scamming to dropship you the item found out about their stolen cc and not fulfilling the request. You then wonder why there isn't any tracking number and try to contact MagasChori in which case you can't because they're a scam company with fake contact info. You then file for PayPal in which the protection saves you. Who gets hurt by all this? The other companies MagasChori is scamming for their sourced products and of course the people who had their credit cards stolen. Paypal tells the company they charged a stolen credit card, and ask for the money back. The company then loses their product in which they sent out and doesn't get paid for it. Now it seems like some people like the OP here thinks this is funny and feels entitlement to this deal no matter who gets hurt, as long as they may get a RPi. But wait until you or someone you know is in a position of a small business or victim of credit card fraud.This MagasChori site is a scam in which they take your billing info and keeps the money.They're using stolen credit cards to buy their items from other companies such as Chicago Electronics Distributors and puts in your shipping info as the buyer with the stolen cards as billing.

Deal is dead. Seller is OOS. One guy thinks this was a scam but everyone seems to have gotten their orders.
Hey frerk, When you recieve goods from a company other than the one you bought from because theyre dropshipping with stolen credit cards, a form of money laundering, it is still a scam no matter if you recieved your item. The problem is not if you get the item but the way you're getting it. You are recieving goods purchased fradulently with stolen credit cards. Some little kids can't wrap their heads around that. Not one person has reported getting a shipment addressed by Magas chori. Theres been reports from it being shipped from different places with other company names in the Usa, UK and China. Can't explain that any better to those that are stubborn. But if you're okay with all this, then that's on you. Feel free to add to the wiki if you like, but dont delete this info unless you like to help cover up fraud as well. Then I guess you would be an accessory.

I haven't ordered from them until now. They did give me a UPS tracking number to track my package. According to the tracking info, they shipped it from IL.

Every startup is dishonest, right?

Um no he's not. OP already stated that it was shipped out from IL. At least thats what's claimed. So very likely this guy is just dropshipping. Hope OP doesn't get a counterfeit RPi.

And if you want to do some proper research, looks like the address is registered to some fitness company.

http://www.manta.com/c/mmswh78/fi...nd-you-inc

Their number is listed there. Give Donald a call or maybe Brenda https://nuwber.com/person/563a78a...06cb656b4a and ask if they still have any RPi's in stock.

This is going to be interesting.
