Hi everyone, i have been looking at a pair of Beats Headphones and found them on sale at this website for £99. I have tried researching the website as i was surprised at the cost but have not found any information as of yet. I would be really grateful if someone could tell me if this website is a fake or not.

Thanks

This site has been registered for more than a year. Typically scammers do not register a domain for more than a year.

WE cannot tell you that this is a legitimate website. We do not make recommendations regarding websites or web sellers. If you are in doubt, it is good to be cautious. Personally, I do not buy from sellers who do not have a store front presence, where I can return items if there are any problems.

If they want payment by Western Union or any other money transfer service, you can be sure it is a scam.

Hi there

Was looking for the same (Dr Dre beats) and came across the Eshopper-UK site.

Did you end up buying the headphones and was the site legitimate?

Thanks a lot

Red flags for this site;

Unencrypted registration page.
No telephone number or address listed. How would you contact them if you have a problem?

It is ALWAYS a scam
If the pet seller or shipper asks for money to be sent via Western Union, Money Gram, any brand of gift card. Walmart To Walmart , Zelle , PayPal friends and family option, or mentions Cameroon
