  1. Everyone beware of SimplyElectronics trading as a genuine company.
    They are easily found on many sales Search sites. Search for a review before considering using their company.

  2. So a question I have is how do you avoid scams like this?

    I know that it says on that website to avoid things online if they’re inexpensive, but I go to Costco.com and Walmart.com and get great prices all the time, so there has to be other ways to avoid scams like in the article?
