Has anyone shopped at

by nthonylam / November 8, 2010 3:38 AM PST

Hi all,
Has anyone here shopped at before? Their HDTVs are cheaper than other sellers. They said their HDTVs are new and sealed in box. I'm thinking of buying a Samsung 32 inch HDTV on this website, but I have no idea if it's a trusted website?

Many thanks

Re: webshop
by Kees_B Forum moderator / November 8, 2010 6:17 PM PST

This is their physical address: 8858 Texas 3, Houston, TX, 77017, US
This is their e-mail address for all departments: shoppinggood6 (at)
This is their business: Appliances-Major-Rent & Lease (since 1996)

The e-mail address doesn't look very professional. A typical one-man shop. Which doesn't mean by definition he isn't reliable, of course.
There are no customer reviews at
There's one very negative comment (dated yesterday) at
There's not much else to find on Internet. That's rather strange for a company that's in business for 14 years already.

You might like contact the Texas (or Florida??) BBB and see what they think of this company. But to me, it doesn't look good.

Do you laugh when?

Do you laugh when you see an offer for a "unopened box" yet the pictures are of the product pulled out of the box on the shop counter for the pictures?

It's a sign. Not a good one.

Better not try it !!

I've found one of the item that I would like to buy and it's a lot more cheaper than any other store out there. The company has no review at all whatsoever.
I suggest don't buy at
The website I visited is below, the website names are somehow similar.

I research into this site through google with the address provided by this site and it has a company name called Tomorrows Electronic and they have totally different email addresses and is operated by more than 1 person.

So, this leads to numerous..........doubts!!!

I would check something like Google Maps for 8858 Texas 3, Houston, TX, 77017, US

That's the address given by in their Contact Us page.

Not looking good. If the map you see is the same as mine, I landed at an intersection and no promising looking buildings except a motel and auto sales.

Some of the icons at the bottom of their home page work, some don't.

As you say, Tomorrows Electronics has the same address. I have to wonder why that is.

I can't say that these sites are anything other than genuine, but when I see things like this I tend to 'walk away' and try another day.


Collapse - is a total scam.
by baldfatguy / November 16, 2010 12:49 AM PST

if you purchase anything through this website you will not receive your merchandise. the payment will go to an individual in china. if you challenge the charge, they send a blank envelope to generate a tracking number which they provide to paypal. do not accept the envelope or sign anything as this could jeopardize your charge dispute. good luck, these guys are very tricky.

Sign has happened
by nabateus / December 11, 2010 1:01 AM PST

Could You give any advice how to deal with PayPal? (If You had to do that too) They closed my claim with this message:

"PayPal has concluded our investigation into your claim.
In response to your claim, the seller has provided proof of shipment
indicating that the item was shipped to you. Because the seller was able to
provide proof of shipment, we cannot reverse this transaction or issue a
refund. We encourage you to continue to work directly with the seller to
amicably resolve this matter."

if you signed then you must call paypal
by baldfatguy / December 12, 2010 8:56 PM PST
In reply to: Sign has happened

getting the buyers to sign for their fake envelope shipment is the way these scammers work the paypal system to cheat you. if you messed up and signed for the stupid envelope they send to generate the tracking number, then you must file a chargeback claim against paypal with the credit card or backup source that paypal used to provide the funds. this will reopen the claim with paypal. if however, when you made the purchase, you had sufficient cash funds in your paypal account and the payment was made from your paypal account without using a backup payment source, you must call paypal on the telephone and tell the agent that the shipment was not the item you ordered but only an empty envelope and you want to speak to an agent who is a fraud specialist. they have the ability to reopen your claim if you provide them with additional information and evidence that you are the victim of fraud. good luck.

Scam it is sure
by nabateus / November 26, 2010 9:25 PM PST

I have ordered a TV (fool me, it was too cheap to be true) what I never get. Now I'm running after my money, dealing with PayPal. (I can't image that how could they give their name and system to this liars? More, how can they still use it?!?!)
There is an another website, I think the same people crated it:
Very similar like the shoppinggod6, maybe it have an even more professional appearance.
The Guestbook doesn't work on the site, no phone number, Hotmail email, logos of big trusted companies at the bottom of the webpage.
Be careful with both!

I have found that this website is part of MANY websites listing the same Texas address. The products and info are also the same on each site. No ratings appear anywhere for them so I am assuming that the names keep changing. The bottom of their websites have phony security logos that have been pasted on...they do not link to the McAfee site or the VeriSign Secured site etc. Purchases CAN be made through Paypal though which makes me seriously worry about my use of paypal now. Anyway, here are a few of the websites that list the same address in Texas and advertise the same products at the same price: (my security software gave me a warning about malware on this one);;;; I am sure there are more. They are very tricky and have made their websites look quite authentic. Googling the business names does not produce much info so I hope more people will post comments about them. I personally will not buy from any retailer that has cut and pasted security logos on their webpage! Hope this keeps others from buying from them.

They are also operating under the web address I knew something was off with their site. If you google the address you see multiple companies come up under it.

New fraudulent website
by talcha2ted / December 10, 2010 9:20 AM PST

Hello E-shoppers,

These scam artists have a new website: .

Their response to questions about the merchandise is identical to what was posted by shoppinggood6 .

Basically, we're all adults, let's use our brains.

How can one small company can undersell everyone else by 30% ?

Best regards, Ted in frozen Canada

I suspected this web site also. However... their LOW prices came up during a web search using NEXTAG.COM

After I see they accept PayPal, how can this be a fraud?? Doesn't the US Government prevent such scams taking place on our own territory??

Do not buy from them... They are a complete fraud. I made the mistake of making a purchase since I thought it was safe via paypal however it is not. They never responded to any of my emails however they did respond to paypal after I filed a dispute.. They provided tracking info and when the packing finally arrived it was a kids toy ring like out of a .25 cent machine. Paypal claimed they only protect purchases made via ebay and I ended up having to file the dispute through my bank which refunded my money and did a charge back to paypal which basically makes paypal go after them. Big scam... Website does constantly change however they are all very similar and their responses are exactly the same.

Don't walk away, RUN away
by CaGolfer / December 14, 2010 2:15 PM PST

I dealt with another "good deal" on a Samsung TV from They showed up under a shopzilla search. Still there by the way. I spoke to PayPal twice BEFORE I made the deal and they assured me I was protected and that the website "looked good". After receiving my money via PayPal they posted a shipment. Fortunately they put the wrong weight and I immediately contacted PayPal. Bottom line, I never heard from the company and kept sending the evidence of the scam to PayPal and filed a claim. I did get a refund and consider myself very lucky for being greedy enough to go for a deal I knew was too good to be true. Yes PayPal knows and is still up and running looking for another victim. PayPal protection is only guaranteed when you purchase on EBay. If you don't you may or may not get your money back. If the vendor does not have funds in PayPal or tied to it you are out of luck.
If it appears to be to good it probably is. Listen to yourself!!! Don't let the greed overshadow your reasonable mind like I did.

PayPal Policy
by CaGolfer / December 18, 2010 3:01 AM PST

The PayPal policy as I understand it and was told by PayPal customer Service is that they protect Ebay purchases 100%. In my case it was a non-Ebay purchase and can only be protected with the money in the sellers PayPal account or the tied bank account etc. Basically when you file a claim they enter a debit or negative balance against the sellers account. If there are enough funds to cover the transaction you will get the full amount if they rule in your favor. If there are not enough funds you may only receive a partial credit. I'd suggest you contact PayPal for the exact policy as I am not giving legal advice only trying to relay my experience. I just want people to be aware since I was advised by PayPal c/s agents that I was 100% protected (with a non EBay purchase) when in reality the refund could have only a partial refund. They did investigate, rule in my favor and gave me a full refund!! Again, I think I was somewhat lucky.

Looks like this is the same people as the rest of the sites listed here. Page looks funky, some links dont work. And list product info pulled from amazon.
Searching usabuygoodweb Appliances Was what helped me find this listing by the way it was listed as the buisness name under the contact us page. They also use that 8858 Texas 3, Houston, TX, 77017, Usa address.

Thanks for saving my fundage guys

Just a couple of suggestions
by hikergirl / February 20, 2011 8:27 AM PST

Have you contacted the Texas Attorney General? Send copies of everything you have, i.e. paperwork, anything paypal may have sent, address, etc.
I use Web of Trust (WOT) and searched for 2 of the Web sites listed ( & For usa, the indicator is colorless with a superimposed question mark. For shoppinggood, Firefox cannot find the site - maybe (hopefully) the site has been taken down.
But do check out WOT - it will keep you from going onto dangerous sites.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
