Is r4-3ds.ca legit?

I recently bought a r4i gold pro from this site, my payment went thought but now I am trying to access their site but it won't open... I'm hoping it's just under maintenance... Does anybody have any experience with this site? It seemed legit...

Lol I know it looks that way... but it's not my site... It's design is very basic and cluttered, I'd never make a website like that. Plus, I don't know ***** about making websites.

How did you pay? You can dispute it through PayPal or your credit card company if you paid them and they never provided the goods.

I paid through PayPal, but I just bought the item yesterday so I don't think I can dispute anything yet. From my experience when a site is under maintenance they have a page saying that, but this site just won't load anymore... Thanks Manatus btw for your reply

Well I would say read up on Paypal's policy (I think off the top of my head you have 45 days to dispute), keep an eye on it and let's say if after 3 weeks you haven't received the item and don't have any proof that it's on the way, think about starting that process. Don't wait until the last minute. If it is a scam seller then they might ask for a little bit more time or say that they mailed it (but can't prove it) etc. to try to get you to delay past the deadline so you can't challenge it.

Ahh, okay I'll definitely do that then. Is there anything I can do in the meantime?

I don't have any specific advice because I've never heard of the website. Did you receive an invoice/payment confirmation that might have a telephone number or other method of contacting them? Otherwise I'd say just keep checking it. Even if it is a scammer, it isn't like they were just waiting for your order so they could take down the website and disappear. So I would say the website being down isn't a reflection on whether or not it is/was legit.

Yeah I probably just got paranoid, they're probably just shut down for maintenance. Anyways, I checked my email and I think they shipped it because they gave me a tracking number, but the tracking number won't work on the site they gave me...

The site is dead and usually they don't shut it down in such a way for maintenance. I'd contact paypal and put a claim in cause i doubt the site is legit.

Try it on different couriers' sites. Try canadapost.ca. Sometimes they say the tracking number is for USPS or Hong Kong Post but it actually works for Canada Post as they will be doing the final delivery.

The tracking number actually work now. Once the item left hongkong they will tell you the date the item left. Before it wouldn't work. It took my item 10 days to just left hongkong, too slow.
