Default Anyone been to COSTEROL.COM?

Found this website looking for good prices on 4K blus. Has anyone had experience with this site? Prices vary but some are very, very good.

Made an order about 4 days ago. Have been charged, yet I haven't received a shipping notification. Furthermore, can't seem to access their website anymore. I just get this message: "costerol.comís server IP address could not be found."

Anyone had their items shipped?

No one is getting anything, because that site is literally taking your PP or CC money and running. This site was mentioned in a hot deal post several days ago and people were warned then complete with a reddit thread on the same site, with people complaining about being left high and dry with orders. Also, if their site is down, there is a good chance it was shut down by their domain registrar or host for being a scam site and possibly also had their card processing capabilities revoked in the process. If that happened, that also means emails to them won't go through, so good luck getting ahold of them. And, oh yeah, that San Diego address that was on the site was made up to begin with, so that won't get you anywhere either.

I would say that I hope you paid with credit card, as it'll be easier to dispute that charge and get your money back than working with paypal to file a claim, but then again, with a credit card, you just gave your card number away to a clearly scam site, so I'd recommend having the card issuer replace the card with one with a new number just to be safe. If you did pay with paypal, definitely submit a claim ASAP. Just be aware that that's far from a sure thing - as that user found out, they won't neccesarily side with you even if it's obvious that it was fraudulent. That user had to spend hours on the phone with them to get them to finally get them to reverse their initial decision to refuse the claim.

So I guess the question you have to ask is, "how much time do you have to waste trying to get your money back for products that had 0% chance of ever shipping in the first place?"

It was also posted in a now locked/deleted hot deals thread from several days ago.

People just need to heed these warnings and steer clear from this site, unless they're a glutton for punishment...

Thanks to everyone who responded. Fortunately, my ADS kicked in shortly after posting this thread and have not returned to the website. So many traps and honeypots on the web that it's hard to keep your guard up all the time. I'm grateful to this website and forum for providing the knowledge and community to make informed decisions. I appreciate you all. Cheers.

I purchased from the site, got scammed, filed Paypal claim, scammer provided Paypal a UPS tracking number that pertained to a Target package shipped to an address not my own, stupid Paypal denied my claim, I had to do investigative legwork, I sent Paypal proof the package was not shipped to me and, finally, Paypal reopened case and decided in my favor, after all. Whew!

The old saying plays true here. "If it's too good to be true, most likely it is".
