Now see, you should get an automatic 25 post bonus for posting stuff like this. :slight_smile:

this looks like one of those russian credit card money laundering things?
i’m probably too suspicious though.

fuggin mint, ordering now! nice find my friend!

sweet, now i can get those duranos.

nice, i’m gunno do a wiggle order

If you’re going to buy the Durano Plus tyres, just be aware the ‘plus’ part describes a thick piece of plastic insert they use inside the tyre for puncture protection.
I bought these tyres on the recommendation of heatseeker and so far they are great in terms of puncture protection.
One negative however is that the plastic insert tends to make the ride quality quite lifeless. But I suppose this is a small price to pay.

I think next time I’d buy the regular Durano rather than the ‘Plus’.

Deal Extreme are there too - they have all those knog rip offs.

Uh oh.

I threw the link up on another forum I am on and this guy e-mailed pay pal. He got this back saying it was a scam.

I emailed PayPal and got the following response about this site. Unless anyone can confirm it’s legitimacy it is not a paypal promotion. Whilst they refer to email (I didn’t mention email) that’s obviously a form letter.

thanks for that. just in the nick o time.

Damn. Thanks for the follow up. If anyone has bought anything, please take phone your bank now and inform them.

Mods - the link from the opening post should be removed.

haha so Liam was right!

The thing is though- how is this a ‘phishing’ scam? All the site seems to do is link to legitimate online stores with the promise that Paypal will reimburse you for $20.00. I can’t see how any personal details would be lost? At worst you don’t get your $20.00 back… or am I missing something? :expressionless:

i don’t think its a scam.
not sure how it would be. you pay via paypal as per normal… so go to wiggle, then choose paypal. paypal will then send you cash back in a month or something. the worst that can happen is that you don’t get the cash back, but it seems very legit to me.
and it doesn’t say anything anything about ‘happy chappy’
