    Ah. This forum software (and many others) will collapse long quoted replies.
    No, it's not. If the foreign manufacture who is being contracted to make 100 jackets for someone, makes 200 instead, and sells the extra 100, that isn't 'stolen'. If you thought I meant that it was being sold by an employee taking from the supply, then ethically I suppose it is - but it isn't a crime to unknowingly receive stolen property.

    Just to be clear, I'm kinda playing devils advocate. Still think it's most likely a scam site.

    I believe that is using the IP address the domain name is registered to come up with that info, which is 136.0.97.13. Technically, I don't think there is any guarantee that the IP address used is the actual webserver if it's being relayed from another source.

    http://www.heldmotorcycle.com/

    Everything, and I mean everything, is 50% off and shipping is only $10.97

    Call me a skeptic, but something just doesn't seem right here. I submitted a question via the contact form a couple of days ago and haven't gotten an answer yet.

    IIRC HELD USA is the North American distributor set up after the previous one went out of business.

    I did some more digging. Who is lists the website as being created in April, 2017. They still haven't answered my question so I'm going to assume it's a scam site, but I did reach out held.de asking if the site is legitimate.

    Seems TGTBT so very interested in Held's reply. I would love to get a new pair of gloves at those prices.

    This looks exactly like the fake KLIM clearance site that was unearthed a couple weeks back

    ** Edit **

    Here's the scam KLIM site for comparison...

    http://www.klimclearance.com/

    IN CASE IT'S NOT OBVIOUS, THESE ARE SCAM SITES
