Fake refurbished laptops shops

Refurbished Laptops

We spotted recently many fake websites trying to sell refurbished laptops (second hand laptops) at very low prices. But what we have additionally noticed is that these fake websites are imitating the legit website Tier1Online.com by cloning and using its website template, navigation menu, logo and images.

Refurbished Laptops

Identifying these fake online shops is easy: as you can see the prices are too good to be true, but more importantly there are no details or phone numbers about the company behind these websites. The "Contact Us" web page shows just a contact form, with no details about the shop, such as opening hours, phone number, email address, etc. I would NEVER buy something from a website that does not show valid information about the shop or the company.
