    That's a shameful scam!!! If you feel bad, I have a great deal for you to make you feel better!! I'm selling a drone (see picture below) for 25 bucks. You can use it with your Schubert helmet!!!

    I took a risk on this site, as they had the tire I wanted in stock at a reasonable (but not obviously fake) price. They had a lot of other moto and auto parts for sale, as well as an eBay shop. So I figured it was legit.

    It was not. I never got my tire, and a month later my card was charged for all sorts of airfare, a cell phone, and a ton of crap from all over the country. So stay away, it's a complete scam.

    Not a secure site. Also, THIS is from their description of their business on their "About Us" page: "cbktrade.top is a leading international online fashion store. Focusing on the very latest in affordable fashion styles, we provide plenty of the latest and trendy products of an extensive range and high quality in order to give maximum choices to you." Would not be my first choice for auto parts.

    Yeah, I didn't see any of that when I followed the google links directly to the page for the tire. I ordered it and only after thought "hmm, lemme actually check these guys out". D'oh. I did keep an eye on my credit card after that, and so did Citibank, so I wasn't out a dime. Looked legit, and it was a top google result, so I didnt' think anything of it when I ordered.

    Top google result or top google ad?
    Both cases we have to ignore google results as those results are defined by money... for them, ads,clicks , etc.
    Better ask/search here .
    At least is what i did.
    I did order from Enduristan GmbH .No problems ,delivery was fast enough (6 days from Swiss to Greece),helpful and fast on the mails.But they are on the second page on the google results....

    Speaking of scams... Cafe Press was just hacked. If you've ordered from them, email addresses and passwords have been compromised.

    The only issue with these transactions is you leave yourself open to hacking because of the access you give to your information during the checkout process. Many of these companies aren't in business to sell products but instead to gather information for other purposes.

    I don't buy anything on Ebay that indicate they are in China.

    I'm beginning to think they have figured how to fake the Google search results too.

    Found these guys http://www.calleduponwater.com/

    looking for an AGV AX9. Prices on all kinds of good stuff is 50% off current deals everywhere else on line. Typical website. All products have tons of reviews 200+ on most, link to reviews points you to the Home page. Site has copyright of 2020 and can't find address or phone number anywhere. All prices are in USD but some text is broken english or not American english terminology. Same as OP noticed website not secure and order page looks legit at first glance.

    I didn't order from it due to my SPidey senses and I could find no reviews of purchases from it anywhere online.

    STAY AWAY!!!.
