Hello,

I'm always looking for places to buy equipment and ran across this website, http://www.traxxasrchobby.com . Anyone hear of it one way or the other? They only take Western Union or wire transfer so it told me to look else where. However, they responded to me reasonably quick after I emailed them. Their website doesn't look like all the other cut and paste sites and looks like they've spent a lot of time and effort into it (website).

Thanks in advance,

Keith

Pops up every once in a while.

http://www.scamadviser.com/is-traxx...-fake-site.html

Prices half that of anywhere else on the planet. A "Contact Us" page with no contact info and what looks like left over instructions from a canned website builder app. And they only accept Western Union or wire transfers. Kiss your $$$ goodbye.

Run away!

Website
Thanks guys! I hadn't heard of them and came across their website one night. I could have answered my own question with their half price sales.

Thanks again!

Like Dave mentioned...if the only method of payment is a wire transfer...it's a scam....no exceptions....

And, with me, if they don't have a working phone that somebody answers....I'm not buying...

Also, down at the bottom of their main home page they have a banner that seems to indicate that they accept paypal, but once you get to the checkout portion, all that is available is wire transfer or western union.

Oh how I would litigate if I were Traxxas. Bad press for them.
