no previous part Part 1 of Low Prices Quality Tools series no next part

I keep seeing online ads for this website https://www.vipgoodbuy.com/salevip/ offering great prices for brand named tools and just wondered if it is one of those scam sites or is it real ?
I need some extra batteries for my growing collection of DeWalt 20Volt tools and I can barely believe the prices they have. I see a pack of 4 batteries for less than I can get just one at my local Lowes or HD stores and the price on a 10 tool DeWalt set is so low I really want to get it to pretty much fill out my needs for cordless tools.
The question is I don’t know if it I can really trust that I will get what I order and not get Ripped off somehow .
Has anyone else bought tools from them and if so what kind of experience did you have with the order ?
I am hoping to find out that it is really legit as they have a lot of other things I would to get that would be NICE to have but just not really a very likely purchase at the normal retail prices for something that might not be used enough to justify the cost.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts or comments either good or bad .

The prices on this website seem WAY WAY to good to be true. I wouldn’t order anything from them. Has to be a scam.

Might have been interesting to contact DeWalt and ask them if they know someone is claiming to sell their products at those prices and see what they say.

You’ve stumbled on to one of the Chinese knock-off sites. They are trading on DeWalt reputation at deep discount pricing. Good luck should you choose to buy.

I tried one of the F’Crook SPONSORED—so I thought it was real!

Nothing but a scam—F’CROOK did not even bother to answer my inquiry either~!

So—I advise against it—it had been a great deal on a D-W set.

Well so far it sounds as if my first impressions were correct . The old saying goes “if it sounds to good to be true it probably is” .

ralbuck did you lose your money on it or did you manage to get a refund ?

Thanks
