Is MediaMarkt.ca legit? I thought it was just a European company

Just wanted to know as I was Google searching for a product and they came up. Not sure if it's a scam. Thanks

No registration info on whois. All redacted. Registered May 22, 2021, expires May 22, 2022. I would expect the real MediaMarkt to register for longer than a year.

I just messaged the MediaMarkt Facebook group to ask if it is real or fake.

You're a legend. Thank you! They have PS5 for sale on their site but I was super skeptical. Thanks for investigating.

pretty easy to tell its a fake site when the contact us button links u right back to the main page same with the about us link.

another way is they also put the paypal logo at the bottom of the page as if they take paypal but none of the fake sites do since they know they wont able to steal ur money paypal makes it to easy for the person to dispute and get the money back. they just want to enter u cc so they get ur number and can charge stuff to ur card.
