This goes back to a strange "business" transaction I had (attempted to have...) in real life. It started out legitimate enough, standard ebay transaction, through the proper channels, etc. One thing led to another and to make a long story really short it left a funny taste in my mouth.

Here's the website.

www.healforce.com

They're based in china, supposedly, and their emails are all [email protected]

I can't tell if they're just a lousy company, or if I inadvertently caught a fish... but something smells (mostly because of the personal communication I had with them, not anything on their site).

So I'm hoping the experts on tracking down the fake sites, etc. can give me an objective review of this.

Thanks Smile

The thread's possibly more at home in the Fake Banks forum.

But generally useful info to look for is when was the domain created, what's the actual physical address it's registered under and other stuff like that.

I'm sure the more experienced site killers will have a good look around it.

Looks legit. Medical equipment supplier.

Looks very legit. Very lousy, but very legit. I didn't go into any of the registration details, since a) it's already been done and b) I'm no expert on that stuff anyway. But their products and all other information check out. I've dealt with a few Asian companies (legitimate ones), and many of them will have similar looking or "sounding" websites. Their methods of advertising are very different from ours, and when translated into English they come off even more different. Actually, that website is rather western-friendly.

With legit sites like that, you can see where the guys who build the fake sites get their ideas from!
