Has anyone used this merchant before? I don't want my money tied up because of scams.

their "payment" page site has had 10 different IP addresses in 6 years of registration - that's pretty unusual - sites don't normally "hop around" - especially if they are making you money.... we plan for weeks to move live ecommerce sites that do a lot of business - even forums like bimmerfest and such, you don't move them on a whim and 10 times in 6 years would be highly unusual unless they keep getting shut down.

another fast mover... 4 IP addresses in 3 years.

Its not a Scam... Its basically bootleg Sunglasses MIC

I bought a few pairs.. They are light and lotz of interchangable lenses.. So far so good.

But the pair I got for my brother.. the piece that held the lens cracked.. I email them last week and have heard nothing back.

Its basically bootleg glasses that cost $3 to make for $35

but then again.. Oakley is basically selling $4 glasses for $180

Dave, you have to go back to my great grandmother's advice (1875--1965). "If it's too good to be true, usually it IS too good to be true."

That's why I need smarties like you to reinforce that cliche statement.

It's not bootleg stuff like one said, it's knockoffs.

Bingo. It's a piece of plastic that cost $180. You don't lose much in quality by buying a copied piece of plastic for 35.

I bought a pair of Persols from that site. My retinas were ruined and now I can only distinguish light from dark.
Can I interest you in a pencil?
