      Phonetec Ltd. Review - Is this company a scam or are they legit?

      Ive come across some ads for a wholesale company called Phonetec Ltd., like this one over here for a Pioneer CDJ-1000MK3. The prices dont seem all that unlikely, around a 35% mark up. Low, but not what Id call suspiciously so. Ive checked out some reviews online, and they mostly look like this one HERE. Its in all caps, and is nearly incomprehensible. Not inspiring, and pretty suspicious. Anyone have any insight on them?

      Ive not had personal experience with PhoneTec Ltd., but just looking at the ad, most genuine electronics dealers dont have such jumbled, near-illegible copy. The English is shoddy at best, embarrassing at worst for a UK-based company. The ad itself, with the PhoneTec Ltd. life story and, seemingly, every product they carry in an unbroken chunk of text dump. Thats just unprofessional. Nobody... pardon, not many people are going to look at that ad and say, I need to get me some of that!

      Also, while the prices arent all that unexpected, the products theyre selling are a bit sketchy. I see a lot of unlocked phones. Jailbreaking phones is gray market activity, and the fact that the majority of their business is selling them doesnt say good things about our friends at Phonetec Ltd.

      On the other hand, I went to the Companies House Web check site and found

      PHONETEC LIMITED
      402 LADYPOOL ROAD
      SPARKBROOK
      BIRMINGHAM
      WEST MIDLANDS

      They are in fact a genuine, UK-registered company. I still dont think I could in good conscience recommend you dealing with them.
