I'm Torn. Is this website legit? They have a really good deal on a Camera Lens I want.

They have a great deal on this camera lens that I want. They have some fire deals in general. I noticed that they have a little banner that says "X Sold in last 24 hours" which seems to be fake. Though I've seen this on a lot of sites and it generally doesn't seem to matter.

 

Can I trust it?

Doing a quick search a wouldn't really trust this website. No website trustability reviews are posted and you can't really find it except when you search "bearifi". Seems too fishy IMO.

Well, they do provide actual address. Which has a typo (Unites States). And Street View shows some weird looking houses only neighborhood.

 

Also those notifications of people buying stuff are sketchy (though not necessarily a scammer as I've bought from such stores before and they were fine).

 

Yeah, I'd pass this one too.

Alright, I'm Done. Wanted a second opinion. 

 

The scary part is that Google serves me this site as a sponsored listing :(

 

The home address and website layout made me consider it could maybe be some sort of automated drop ship site. Though looking through a lot of the buttons don't work and it looks like all the listings are automatically generated. 

 

Thanks, guys!

 

Clicking "Tate Place" takes you to the site.

Google spot means nothing. If you haven't heard of company before its 70% of times fake. This goes with FB ads as well. Google and others are after money, not pleasing users.

Nope, you sure can't.  They got me.  I wanted a lens as well but figured I'd start small with a DJI Osmo Action.  They really got me because I figured it wasnt "too good to be true" with a price of $279.  Best Buy is selling them for $319 so I thought, "well its a competitive price so there is less chance they are scammers"  NOPE, I was scammed.  Next time I will look before I leap and see what the online community says.  Fortunately my Citibank card will give me my money back when I dispute it.  (I already called).  Best of luck all!
