These Soho scammers sure do get around. They’ve got a new site up, American Warehouse, located at the always reputable .us domain.
This time, they are emailing people advertising 10 iPod Nanos for $1499. Seems plausible, actually, but as Ben reminds me, the scam isn’t the implausibility of the price, it’s the way your money disappears into the ether.
Speaking of disappearing into the ether, Sohostore.us now leads to xyi.com. American Warehouse is a carbon copy of the old design, with the name and logo changed.
Perusing the website, it’s an odd mash-up of plausible prices ($1399 black Macbook) and completely insane ones ($999 iMac Intel Core Duo). There’s not much that can be done about these assholes, except tell everyone about the latest permutation of their scam and warn your friends to buy their shimmery new Macbook straight from source.
The full email is after the jump.
