There is a false Dewalt website ( greatly reduced prices for Dewalt tools. 735 planer $99.00, 6piece tool set $99.00. It is a scam. They charge your credit card or pay pal and send you a package of smiley face stickers. Don’t fall for it. Since they actually send some thing with a tracking number the card companies have a hard time crediting you.

DW 735 for $99 make the hair on my neck rise up. I never go for anything that off because it is a scam or stolen and have no interest in being a part of either. Just the same thanks to Harryn for posting this.

There are other people on Facebook Marketplace doing that. Or maybe it’s the same people.

I actually PM-ed them to ask why the price is so low – with no intention of going for it – and the guy (must be a guy) wrote back with “my prices are always like that, here’s my website.” The website had all kinds of misspellings and ridiculous grammar, which to me said it was probably some offshore thief.

Sure, here’s my bank account #.

I had to check this site out for myself. Surprisingly no malicious trackers found but I did find something comical\

First one is the random “Canadagoose world” clue if that was a translation error or what. And the second thing was a Google+ icon in the social media. That platform died like 5 yrs ago.

They do the same thing with guitars so it’s not just limited to tools.

Purchased from web site several Dewalt tools ~ $150.00. After payment received an email confirmation was from [email protected] . When I received our AMEX statement the purchase was from PKT ECOMMERCE PURCHASE. I ordered June 18, 2020 and we did not receive until the end of August. The shipment was a knock-off Ray Band Sunglass with 2 oz shipping weight. Emailed and told them my Dewalt tool was toy sunglass. They asked me for a picture. I sent it and they would not answer me back. AMEX refunded my funds and did remove them as a client of theirs., [email protected]

The only time I purchased something that sounded too good to be true, it was actually true. Some guy put up on CL a brand new in the box 3 HP dust collector for $200. When I went to look at it, it was as described. I had to ask him if it were hot, and he said no, he works for a tool place and it was a return because it needed 220 VAC and wouldn’t run on 110, so he got it at cost for his dad. His dad didn’t want it because it was too big. So I got a brand new 3 HP dust collector for $200.

A 3 HP dust collector for $200 is a great deal, but I wouldn’t put it in the Too Good To Be True category.

People sell things they don’t need all the time, in fact people often give away furniture (which to you and me = wood!) because they just want to get rid of it.

These scams are all over Instagram too, like very tool Makita makes in a kit for 300 bucks.

This is the absolute answer.

However many of us have what could be known as either great optimism, or blind stupidity. We live hoping that we will find the free lunch. So this type of scam will always net some $$$$ to those who prey on others.

Reminds me of folks that believe they can attend timeshare weekends and get a free vacation and a gift desk clock too!
