!!SCAM ALERT!! Legit GC site? https://www.yourgiftcards.ca/

Never heard of them....

https://www.yourgiftcards.ca/

Located in Magog, quebec.

Decent deals like a 100$ esso GC for 80$


Anyone heard or used them in the past?


As of september 2nd no one received anything for the few people that placed an order with them.

This site is a SCAM.

RINZINZIN, the company behind it, seems fairly legitimate but they are an app design company not a gift card retailer. The Facebook page for voscartes was created 4 days ago and the domains were registered in the past few months.


Edit:

I contacted them and got a reasonable response. It's a gift card market, same as giftcardgranny, et al. Obviously there is some risk that the original owner or voscartes has recorded the number somewhere and will use it after you receive and check the balance.

I asked them to comment on this thread.

Might be OK for emergency use depends on how fast you can get it. We get 20% off gift card deals often enough so no need to increase risk

If you can point me to a 20% off Esso gift card deal that would be great. Have never really seen one....

The "voscartes" Facebook page has disappeared.

However, there is now the following:

https://www.facebook.com/YourGiftCardsCanada/

Facebook says that the company launched in June.

We simply changed the FACEBOOK page name from VOS CARTES to YOUR GIFT CARDS CANADA - we wanted it in English

How long for shipping? And its possible the cards on the site is not in inventory hence the folks have to go find some?

If all cards are available why does it take 15-20 business days? WAY TOO LONG. Sounds fishy. Should be 5-7 business days at most. Youre not shipping from out of country.

Registered 9 days ago, using Godaddy as a domain with everything hidden, but hosting from Google Coud service. I wouldn't go with it just cause of how new it is with no reviews. I pressed about, called the number and it's some securities site. Definitely a scam. Also.. "No refunds - no returns
Please our DELIVERY TIMES (between 15 - 20 business days)"

I wouldn't trust it. Only payment methods are credit card or offline.
RFD mods are on a power trip... how about messaging me before changing my signature. Some common courtesy would have been nice.

I could have sworn that there was a Paypal option before?

Now it seems this option has disappeared?

I was considering sending payment via Paypal as a test transaction.

Not so much now.

I am pretty sure that Rinzinzin has just made the website for a client - they don't sell the cards themselves.

The Facebook page is rated 5 out of 5 by an account called "Rin Zinzin" and someone who used to work at Rinzinzin.
