They just made away with $1224 USD towards an order for S9 with PSU. No Communication or replies for 2 days now. The site looked shady but had to risk as it was urgent for me to get a replacement for an s9 in my existing farm.

Please dont fall in trap. Google shows their site as sponsored ad (Top Position).

Please use the proper scam report format as noted here:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=260073.0

I have actually never used this site nor have I never heard of it so I cannot comment on their legitimacy. Also two simple screenshots of the order does not need to prove anything. Can you show us the conversation you had eith them or any attempt to reach them but they don't respond?

Also, do they have a forum account here? If yes could you link us to the profile that would be great.

I hope you paid with paypal or so on, that is reversible. If not, well you should have done some research before paying them nothing.
Everyone should know that some google ads are just pure scams, that is why they might want to advertise.
If i search "minershop net" your thread comes first, and then some listings on the site after that.
Does not seem legit at all huh?  Grin

Anyway, please be more careful in future and do some research.

I just listed an antminer on eBay and I saw the advertisment at the bottom of my listing :-

Sponsored Links
minershop.net :-
14TH/s Antminer S9 - The Lowest Price Guarantee‎
Include 180 days Warranty. Free express shipping worldwide.‎

They have the S9 14TH/s listed for $1150 as in stock, ship within 24hrs.

Strangely I spent some time searching eBay worldwide tonight and the best prices I could find on (in stock) 13.5TH/s units was around $3700+ (AUD), and out of warranty (used), due to the current shortage of supply). There are sellers with 13.5TH/s units available for July delivery for $3000+ (AUD).

according to the WHOIS record for the site, it was registered 31.05.2017

The entire site, including the checkout process and password registration is http:80, not SSL (not secure).

Only accepted payment method is bitcoin.

Classic case of too good to be true, site seems very dodgy, so I wouldn't buy anything from them.

I agree that vigillance should be encouraged but the victims of scams aren't to blame.
