Is this website (http://www.lunarsalesstore.org/) Legit?
I want to buy some shoes from this website. I think they are located in China? Are they legit though? I dont want fake Nikes sent to me .
Hi, hope you are well. It seems to me that you have stumbled upon a relatively new site. Purchasing from such sites tend to be very risky and there is no guarantee whether you will receive your order or not. I did a bit of research regarding their site and have compiled some interesting facts for you to read through.
Their site was created just recently and has not been around even for a month. To be more specific, their site was created and registered last 1st of October 2012, and is due to expire a year after, 1st of October 2013. High-risk companies would usually register their domain for a fairly short period of time, in order to avoid the authorities from detecting their unscrupulous activities and cracking them down. Their website appears to be located in the US, but there is no doubt that the company is indeed based in China. I did a quick site lookup regarding their domain and have supplied you with their registration details below.
Registrant Name:yin ai
Registrant Postal Code:56896
Registrant Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I don't know about you, but the registration details above does not make any sense to me. A free email address have been used in the setup of this website. This is not necessarily worrying, depending on the site. But for online shops where a certain value is involved, this can be a sign that the site has some risk and the repercussions behind can be pretty bad.
The only payment option they provide you with is through credit card. Let me remind you that this might spell trouble on your part as you are providing very sensitive information to a company you barely even know. If you take a closer look at their website, you will notice that unlike other reputable online merchant stores, they are not verified to be a secure and trustworthy website.
I do suggest that you think it over carefully before placing an order with them. There are a lot of reputable and trustworthy sites out there where you can purchase the same item, without the risk of being ripped off of your hard-earned money. You just have to be very careful and do a bit of research before giving it a go.
If you wish to know more about a site's reputation, then I suggest you to first do a quick site lookup via verify1st.com to ensure that the site you are dealing with is a legitimate one. Due to the fact that this site is relatively new, it is not yet included in our database. However, we are sure to include them in our next listing in order to provide you with further information.
I do hope that I was of help to you. If you need further assistance, then please let me know and I will gladly do what I can to help out.
Until then, tread carefully!

That is a fake website pretending to sell cheap merchandise.
Any site that advertises merchandise cheaper than the official manufacture's website is a fake site shipping gosh awful crappy knock-offs or simply collecting cash and not even bothering to ship fakes.
The pictures on the site look like the real merchandise because those pictures ARE of the official merchandise. Those pictures were stolen from the official manufacture's website. If you receive anything at all, which is doubtful, it will not resemble those pretty pictures at all.
The payment options say it all, Western Union and moneygram. The credit card icons are just there for show, that site does not accept credit cards, only anonymous cash payments.
Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.
In all seriousness, when something goes wrong, what will you do? Send an email that is ignored and blocked? Send chat requests until you are ip banned? Call internationally and speak fluent Chinese?
The UPS, TNT and DHL icons are there only to take up space, that site only ships with EMS, the Chinese post office, good luck getting the "tracking number" they give you to work on the EMS website. You will need even more luck trying to contact EMS when your tracking stops and your "package" is lost somewhere.
You could then be really lucky, your "package" is discovered, seized by "customs" and all you need to do is pay even more money via Western Union or moneygram to the "custom's official" who uses a free email address just like that site has a free email address as its contact information.
Free email addresses are easy to open and close completely anonymously.
