Default Has anyone heard of TradeStead

Greetings:


Has anyone tried out TradeStead to buy a Camcorder.

They have the Aiptek Z700 in the Generic form for only $192.35US

Also I'm looking to buy the Sanyo HD-2000, TradeStead prices it at
$447.80 US

If someone has ordered a camcorder from this place or something else
can you give your feedback about their service, what condition the
product comes in(New or Refurbished), shipping delay, etc.

Here is the link: http://www.tradestead.com/

Regards Robert

I P A S S, but you never know

As the saying goes, google is your friend lol

Didn't take long and while those with bad experiences tend to the most vocal, the 'evidence' I found without much effort seems to point more to them being yet another scam site.

Remember Caveat Emptor. For that amount of money, personally I woudn't risk it but that's just me.

There are no reviews, there rarely are but if you search using google (or whatever your favorite search engine is) on tradestead.com you come across quite a few complaints. It doesn't appear in www.resellerratings.com for instance.

Perhaps I am qualified to tell you a little about Tradestead, I have bought a camera and several mobile phones from them, all products delivered in time and work smoothly, so, my attitude toward them is positive, at least so far.

Default Run dont walk from tradestead they are crooks

Hi Robert,

I was fooled by their seemly professional website, its just a con job, they have 2 people working the scam. I placed and order paid over $800.00 they didnt have the product i guess they was hoping and praying or had a wish for the items they say they selling on their website. I have tried contacting them repeatly to get the money back. I keep getting the run around. PLEASE NOBODY DO BUSINESS WITH TRADESTEAD THEY ARE RIP OFFS. I wish someone had warned me but maybe my loss will be someone elses gain (knowledge) about this company.

We live and learn the hard way. Be happy that you identity was not stolen.

Youu are best to call your creditcard and dispute a.s.a.p.. online orders.your chance are already 50% lost, some to most credit companies will not backup purchases, now that the net is here to stay paypal is not the place for payment, they only deal with ebay, and reach out beyond but willvnot stand behind you. For me that is what I found out lie to me ....
800.00 is a lot of cash, and I feel for ya.

We. I do purchase and I try my best to stand clear of basement shops. There were ways to check out who you deal with, is it called bbb .com
To those that have a issue with this site it is advised to be carefull of certain sites....

Keep us. Posted on your outcome.
