I googled the Nintendo Wii trying to find a place where I could find one in stock to get for my boyfriend for his birthday. One of the links that came up was to Wildcostinc.com. The Wii was a great price, shipped in 1-3 days- seemed like a great deal. I ordered the Wii and saw that I had to make an offline payment. I looked in the Frequently Asked Questions and there was one pertaining to this saying they usually dealt in bulk orders so they didnt accept credit cards. I also saw the Internet Shopping is Safe logo and thought it was a legit site. I later learned that you should be able to click on this logo and it opens a link. On their website it did nothing.
I sent a moneyGram for $200.00. The name of the person this was sent to was Jin Leung in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I was emailed from [email protected] that my payment was received and my item would ship that day. In the days that followed my order status remained at "processing" on the wildcostinc.com webpage. I started to get suspicious and looked into the site more. I sent several emails to [email protected] and got a reply that my order had shipped. When I asked for a tracking number I was ignored and have not heard back from them since. The time stamp on the emails was also about 8 hours time difference ahead of me in New York City.
I now see that the website is gone. However, if you type in pemglers.com you get the exact same website with a different name and number.
