Slickdeal Ad for goinsou.com. Is it legit?

15 73 September 16, 2019 at 07:30 AM
Hi,

I was just searching for a bluetooth speaker on Slickdeal, and saw an ad banner for a JBL Flip4 for $16.99 by a company goinsou.com(see attached snapshot.) I've never heard of them so decided to look for online review for the site, but nothing found. Looked at whois and seems like the domain was registered last month, and website shows physical address of small house in Philly! All this doesn't look legit to me.

Question is, does Slickdeal(via Google) do any kind of checks before putting an ad on their website? If not, how does one warn other SD'ers to be cautious of this type of an ad?

Link to the ad...

I'm just seeing this now. I bought a Bose Soundlink speaker last week. A couple days later I logged in to see my order status. My orders aren't even in my order history! When I searched the address of the store,1214 S. 21st Street, Philadelphia, PA, 19146 it looks like some shady place in in Philly and it's for sale. Have you gotten any sort of response at all? I'm contacting the realtor to find out who owns this home.

Rule of thumb is, that if it looks to good to be true then it is quite likely not legit. Sorry for your loss, but it does create in your mind a good learning experience, just be glad that your experience was cheaper than others who paid up the ying yang.

Hey everyone, we went ahead and blocked all these vendors. We're also working towards new ways to vet/ allow these vendors in the marketplace to ensure that this does not happen. Appreciate all the insight and feedback as it does help.

that same seller, Goinsou, has a new store front called www.Benderoh.com [Benderoh.com] . It's exactly the same. Rip Off

To my fellow slick suckers. I was scammed as well. I called my credit card company and they removed the $16.90 from my next statement. My card company told me I have nothing to worry about.

"If it's Too Good to be True, It Usually Is!!"

I would suggest you would do the same and contact your credit card company. Good luck and BEWARE!

On a brighter note I purchased my JVC flip 4 at Wally World for 50% off.!
The Sound is Awesome!
The Bass is PumpNNNNN

I read that as "my bass is a pumpkin!" laugh out loud Halloween state of mind.

I am glad that you got things resolved!

Cenderoh is still in business, so to speak, with an address in NE PA right near the PA/NY/NJ border. I googled the site before ordering (a GREAT deal!!!!) and found this thread. Thanks for being here. I'd rather be warned than be a victim, even if my bank would make good on it. I don't want crooks to have my money!
