    and


    http://www.percian-cycles.com/

    The reply from the other was nearly identical, with a shipping charge of 126$ rather than 96$.
    I was curious if anyone had any experience with either site?

    This happened already in the energy drink vs coffee thread. Pretty sure the universe is already collapsing because of that.

    Hey Michael, whatever happened to the money you promised to wire me after being chosen as a winner of the Kenyan lottery? I'm sure you'll get to it soon.

    I found this website earlier this year and was in the final stages of ordering a bike when the bank transfer nonsense made me stop in my tracks. It is most definitely a complete scam, as is http://ahmadakbar.com (now suspended), and http://top-cycles.com/.

    They are all the same Indonesian scam.

    It's just fabulous they are using my order info to perpetuate their scam. If they were in Oz, I would sue.

    Looks like they have a stack of other scam sites:

    paper-printers.com
    adik-printer.com
    anggi-riangga.com
    international-xpress.com
    andi-tools.com
    sudaryoto.com
    ahmadbicycle.com
    tamoragindo.com
    starscycle.com
    international-bicycle.com
    ridwan-paper.com
    adik-printer.com
    world-bicycles.com
    ridwan-sport.com

    What's extraordinary is how they troll websites trying to control review information about themselves, like our friend above.
