I just was recently looking for in ceiling speakers and happened upon this website with almost unbelievable deals. But I see many things that should be priced around 300$ for sale for 50$ Anyone know or experience anything with these people??? I want to check before I jump into a scam of some sort.... it almost seems like they would have to be stolen to sell at these prices and then give free shipping... Here is what t I was looking at http://mareag.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=206699. http://mareag.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=10_11&products_id=209622

I have same question. Some of the prices are unbelievable from this site and they accept only playstation shopping network codes. Want to make sure this is not a scam.

I just ordered from this site last night and my gut is telling me it's a scam, and I'm a moron for being so gullible. However, admittedly, I was/am curious to see how it plays out. I'll keep you informed as things progress.

Hopefully this will be helpful for people considering making a purchase. If it turns out to be a scam, I'll be glad to have helped others from falling for it. Here's the play by play with my experience so far:

-Checked out, chose the free shipping option (which is supposed to only be 7 days). Was sent an automated order confirmation email with instructions on how to pay. Order status: Pending.
-Paid with $50 PSN code (SO fishy) and was sent a payment confirmation email about 2.5 hours after doing so. This email stated that my order was "sent to the warehouse, which can take up to 2 business days." They also sent another email stating my order status was now updated from pending to "processing."

Unfortunately, the timing of my ordering sucks with it being the weekend as well as Columbus Day on Monday. So if they are legit, I won't have any more updates/info to provide until probably middle- to end-of-week. So yeah. Here we go, I suppose...

I have searched online, but I got no information about this company. It just pop out for google this morning when I tried to buy a phone.

This is what I have gotten when I asked for support:

Thank you for your email. To complete your purchase you must go on amazon.com and buy a Playstation Network $50 code. The step by step instructions can be found in the second video available at: https://mareag.com/checkout/ . Completing the purchase won't take more than 5 minutes. Alternatively we can just cancel your order and email you in about 2 weeks when paypal will be re-enabled.


Always at your disposal,

Donna Caldwell

Sorry to say guys but this shit is totally a scam. Almost everything is $50 and the repeat somethings and have them at different prices... the "deals" are unbelievable, in both directions though some items cost more than they should $50 and most cost less $50 (and should cost 600) try calling the number... no dice! All articles are on fake news site created within the past few days. And I don't know who the he'll they got to do their YouTube reviews holly hell... but it's all you find about them really

Yeah thanks for the advice I think the PlayStation Network thing is waaay too sketchy and seems to confirm our thoughts on the whole thing I sincerely hope that you get the things that you did order and totally wish I could buy some of these things for $50 that would be my price.!!!.. Lol

I believe Mareag.com is a scam, at least, Amazon says:
"When making a payment, you cannot use an Amazon.com Gift Card for purchases directly with third-party merchants. A third-party website or seller that suggests payment using an Amazon.com Gift Card is not a legitimate Amazon Pay merchant."
...
"Be wary of these common internet scams
Requests for Amazon.com Gift Card claim codes"

And those guys ask for PS Store Gift card number.

Yep... was a big ol' fat scam. Their site has been shut down already. I'm in the process of working with PS and Amazon to get assistance on a refund. Very grateful for that.. considering it's not their fault I was a dunce. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)
