buy a celestorn nexstar 6se new
      #6088324 - 09/18/13 03:52 PM

Has anybody bought from buygoodsz.com? They sell Celestron telescopes, but I am not sure if they are a scam or the real deal. They are selling a Celestron Nexstar 6se for $630. 00 with free shipping.

Site looks suspicious, esp. since the photos are of such poor resolution. I would buy from someone with a better track record, since a telescope can break during shipping and you would want a clear return policy

I would stay far away from this. The old adage applies - if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. These kinds of sites pop up regularly (with amazingly low prices), take peoples' money, and then disappear.

stay away - no way that is legit. the address of the company is an apartment complex in boulder CO.

Total scam.

Advisor report on company in question.

Not that they may not be what they say they are, but if they are based in India, there is a fair chance that the goods are gray market. New, but not sold by a US importer and therefore not under warranty.

When everything is listed as "Free" in terms of their infrastructure, I would be wary.

Thanks for all of the input. I am going to take the advice given and steer clear of the site.

ResellerRatings.com has no info on this site. That does not mean good or bad. It just means they're new with no buyer feedback. Personally, I always avoid sellers that have no feedback. In short form, "no buy, no burn".
