    Is this company a scam?

    Has anybody purchased from a company called samsweshop.com out of the UK? Just wanted to know if anyone has dealt with them or are they too good to be true?

    Wink Scam!! Beware!

    Do not order anything from samsweshop.com they are a scam! Hope this helps someone make a wise decision. Thank goodness I checked them out before ordering!

    If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

    Thanks. I looked at the website. The prices are way above normal. I wouldn't have shopped there anyway..
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I was interested because they had a singer machine on sale for 89.99 - a Quantum Stylist 9960. Thank goodness I checked them out!

    How did you determine they are a scam? I can't find anything about the online. I'm like to know, so that I can check out other websites.

    Thanks

    which website told you this was a scam. I've looked but didn't find it. Found one site that said this was a new website with no history.

    How do we determine an honest "new" site? There are so many crooks out there.

    I'd be interested to know how you determined that it was a scam, too. . .

    Inquiring minds want to know

    I searched for this site this evening. There is a contact address given, that seems to be in the UK, but as far as Google maps can search, that address does not exist, and there is no post code given to make further searches.
    On the site, there are items for sale, but the prices are all in US dollars.

    If you are worried about a seller’s integrity, just pay with a credit card or with PayPal. Both will back you up if you decide you’ve “been had”.

    The telephone contact number is totally odd too.

    I also found this site to be a scam. I have had this Singer machine that they are offering for $89 and love it and was considering ordering as mine is 10 years old. I am glad that I checked them out first.
