    I have several commercial Robox units

    Last weekend I noticed that there was an advert on Amazon.co.uk advertising new Robox01 for just £598.00.

    Thinking this was either a great opportunity to acquire more Robox’s or a con trick (the later being by far the most likely) I emailed Cel the details and questioning whether the seller was authentic.  Needless to say Cel replied very quickly saying that it was a con.  Later that day I went to report the seller to Amazon only to find the seller was no longer ‘active’.  🙂

    Knowing how these con-artists work, i.e. close down one account and open up a new one, I have just checked Amazon.co.uk and the same offer is now being made by another seller, Robox01’s for £598.00.  I am of the opinion this is yet another ‘con’ as the adverts of the original con and this presumed new one are identical.

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/ROBOX-RBX1-Robox-RBX01-BK-Printer/dp/B00PUXJWTM/ref=sr_1_1?m=A2WPF9AU0M82UP&s=merchant-items&ie=UTF8&qid=1487247633&sr=1-1&keywords=robox

    Just hope very few people or indeed no one is caught by this apparent con.

     

    UPDATE

    I have just spoken to the company (Brandon Limited, website: bradanbiosecurity.com) who confirm this is a con and there Amazon site has been hacked.  Apparently over £40k has been so far conned out of unsuspecting buyers on the hacked site.

     

    REMEMBER:  ALWAYS CHECK EXTRAORDINARY GOOD DEALS OFFERED, IF THEY SEEM TO GOOD TO BE REAL THEY USUALLY ARE.

    @billbo Thanks for posting this Bill – as they always say, if it looks too good to be true, it is! If anyone has any enquiries about sales/resellers etc. the best option is always to contact us first at info@cel-robox.com – a full list of authorised and affiliated resellers can also be found here – Where To Buy

    We are getting a nice little Robox support group down here in south west Washington. I don’t know how Hobbyking is doing it but they are selling at a very good price.
