    Hi, Yes, definitely a scam, same a good price for a PS4, but thought it was weird they wanted money and were not happy with me collecting. They give funny far out addresses and lots of adds on OLX. I searched and apparently they are in Welkom, but they have a Durban number. Do not send money, rather just walk away.

    You lot clearly don't understand how drop shipping works.

    For an online store, there's very little visibility on Google

    Dear Adrian,

    I don't know how drop shipping works, and would not mind you informing me and other members to get educated. The issue isn't drop shipping however, but the fact that the registered address that the company supplies as having a shop, is not occupied by them at all and the neighboring businesses have no knowledge of this company, even though Maxi's confirms the address. It is also very suspicious that when you contact them, they are not willing for you to collect, even if you are in the same area. Please understand that in the age we are in with major fraud etc. we as consumers need to exercise caution and if something seems off, rather stop the transaction. I have given the company, Maxi's Electronics multiple times to verify information, but they wont. Also very strange that a company in Welkom, Free State has a Durban telephone number.

    Yeah, then they're up to no good.
