    I THINK I've ordered from them before, the site looks familiar...might be just a template website layout that these people might be using also...hmmm

    Certificate says you're ordering from Yahoo-inc (Yahoo). It's an o.k certificate.

    It says a 'sale' they have made their money on their stock and have some left over before a new stock of different or better cards goes up for sale.

    You get that with cars, buy them new and the dealer controls prices, when the showroom has 3 or 4 left they reduce the price heavily to make way for new series of cars.

    well i just called them and they are very retarded. i was like do you still have the asus 9600 xt. shes like let me ask...then shes like sirr we don't sell asus, only MSI. i was like wtf b/c the website obviously says they do. so i just hung up and now i ordered from zipzoomfly....and the one from there may of not had the half life coupon but zipzoomfly guarenteed they had them so i feel safer buying from them.

    Only as they are using Yahoo to process their transactions (ie a yahoo store) Doesn't mean that Yahoo have vouched that the company is ok.

    yeah ur right rushm. yahoo has to put Ebuyer protection next to them for them to be actually a legit company. theres still lots of ripoff companies that just use yahoo for transactions

    Well if it goes 'pear shaped' the credit card company are liable, not you. That's UK law on credit cards transactions.

    Only if the transactions are over £100. Don't know what the laws are like in the USA though.
