    Has any one ever ordered a new blackberry phone from phonestockcity? They do not have a website and only provide an email address. In addition, they only take money through western union (sounds more suspicious as I type this post). They claim they have rather large inventory of consumer electronics. Please help before I order. Thanks in advance.

    Without even looking them up, I'll advise you not to purchase from a "business" that only accepts Western Union..

    I would not touch this with a 10' pole.

    A Storm for $300 before it is actually released? Not a chance of it being legitimate.

    If it was posted here, it would be deleted without question.

    If a company does not take credit cards or use paypal and they are doing business online, they would be companies you do NOT want to have anything to do with.

    Western Union or any form of wire transfer as their only means of doing business is a red flag that it's a scam. And any good reviews are from the scammer, if they say anything about fast service and the fact the customer does not have a credit card or checking account (people still write checks?).

    One or two people might actually get something they ordered or worse pictures of what they ordered, but don't hold you breath that you are going to be one of them, especially for a product that is not out yet.

    There was an Ebay scam a while back where the seller had a cleverly worded ad selling a picture of some item, rather than the item itself. He did in fact state in the ad to read the ad carefully before bidding, and did say once that it was only for a picture of the item, but that of course way lost in several lines of how great the item was.

    I fell for this along time ago when I was like 16, the Motorola A630 with bluetooth headset! Dang, I remember! Hahaha, anyway, I emailed him as well and all he wanted to talk about was Western Union, not the legitimacy of his company, which I was inquiring about. Bottom line... Don't do it.

    If a company is legit they will have their own domain and e-mail will be company based not a public free account like hotmail, gmail, or yahoo.

    If thet don't take PayPal or it not a secure site to do creditcard I don't buy.
