http://www.deal-city.net/

It has some good deals, so I'd like to order from there if it's legit. However, there is no phone number or email address listed on the website and the address listed is for South City Plaza; no suite number is given. I Googled it for reviews and got no matches- not even the actual website, but I also see no negative comments. I went as far as to begin the checkout process, but PayPal was the only accepted form of payment. During this, I created an account and received an automated email from <[email protected]>...

Did you try running the email for the IP address and also for Whioisthis? It'll show you Gwen the domain was registered and all that good stuff. If it turns out to be a fake, there are people on this site who specialize in killing fake sites.
Edit-could you post the headers from the email. I'm not an expert but I thin it's odd to have no contact info, no shipping department email addy and no phone.

So let's walk through a few checks.

Start with the domain registration:
Quote:
Domain Name: DEAL-CITY.NET
Registrar: GODADDY.COM, LLC
Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com
Referral URL: http://registrar.godaddy.com
Name Server: NS1.BIGCOMMERCE.COM
Name Server: NS2.BIGCOMMERCE.COM
Status: clientDeleteProhibited
Status: clientRenewProhibited
Status: clientTransferProhibited
Status: clientUpdateProhibited
Updated Date: 02-jun-2013
Creation Date: 09-may-2013
Expiration Date: 09-may-2014


So the registration is less than 2 months old, registered for the minimum period of a year. Not inspiring a ton of confidence here.

Then let's look at the registrant:
Quote:
Registrant:
Domains By Proxy, LLC
DomainsByProxy.com
14747 N Northsight Blvd Suite 111, PMB 309
Scottsdale, Arizona 85260
United States


So the registrant has hidden their information. There are legitimate reasons for hiding registration information (for example, here at eater, Rover doesn't want angry scammers showing up on his doorstep)--but why would a retail business that has a legitimate business address need to do this?
This is a definite red flag.

Then let's look at their address.
Quote:
Our Store located at:
South Coast Plaza
3333 Bristol Street

South City Plaza has a website. That website has a store directory. Since they say they have a store there, I would expect to find it in the directory. http://www.southcoastplaza.com/store-directory
Nothing named Deal City listed there.

Personally, I wouldn't touch something like this.

Dotty, you are the expert! Google maps also shows no such store.

Who would like to report it to the site killers and take a walk through killing it? I'll do it if no one else is interested.
OojoyOO, could you post the original email with header?

I didn't check prior to ordering from this site. I ordered a computer and spent 478.99 through Paypal. They item said in stock and they were a local CA business. The order immediately went to awaiting shipment and sat in that status for awhile. I sent messages through their page with no response. I then noticed in PayPal the email Address they used was a verified NON US email address. The phone number they provided was not a US Number. I then opened a complaint with Pay Pay and they notified the seller and my order status immediately went to Refunded, but no refund has come through. pay Pal says I have to wait until 6-29-13 for the borrower to respond. The website is now "down for maintenance" today.
I don't know if it was coincidence or not but my email account was hacked the day after I registered as well. I have a background in tech support and internet and I just got in a hurry and didn't take the time to research this site before I ordered and that is on me. i would however like to let everyone know they may be researching this website so they don't get scammed as well.

here is the info I have - The Header to the first email is below. I will follow that up with the info they provided Pay Pal.
