      Laptopplaza.com Review - Can anyone help me Verify?

      Hi,

      Can anyone help me verify this wholesale business?

      I have been looking at laptopplaza.com I know there are tons of threads on this forum with reviews, but no one has ever responded saying there purchase went well or posted pics. Does anyone has actual experience buying from this company? Is there anyone in NJ or FL that can verify there location?

      I am planning a trip to visit the location and pick up the laptops I plan to order. The guy I am talking to from the website (Alex) is telling me I need to T/T the money over a couple days before I pick them up so it sounds a little fishy to me.

      It's difficult to verify it remotely, we would never wire them any money without meeting them first let's put it that way. Let's verify it step by step:

      Points in favor:

      1. Domain has been registered since 2000, with 1 registrar only.

      Points against:

      1. It is not an incorporated business

      2. If it wasn't that their office image was so small, we could go as far as suggesting it has been digitally altered. See it at Laptop Plaza: About Us

      3. They are showing an Audi TT outside their offices. Relevant? Or parked there as a gimmick? Also the license plate is not visible, has it been masked?

      4. and finally, drum roll: 345 Carnegie Ave — Kenilworth, NJ 07033 - Google Maps

      No LP on the building

      Wire money before collection? Better not.

      There is one more check you can run, in the Google Maps image there is a number of an agency that seems to be renting out the building. Their details are:

      Cassidy Turley
      Cassidy TGOOGLEURLey > Contact Us

      Somerset, NJ
      200 Cottontail Lane
      Somerset, NJ 08873
      Tel: 732-868-5111
      Fax: 732-868-8055

      They might be able to give you more information about who has rented the property, under the assumption that a scam is being operated from the building.

      Yeah, you make a great point. There are some reviews of other buyers saying they have done business with the website, but that could always be spam. The Audi in the drive way of the building is pretty suspicious. The pavement looks different so I am wondering if the Google image is older than the business.

      I looked at https://accessnet.state.nj.us/BusinessEntityResults.asp
      Gateway Watch - Business Entity Search Results

      1 IWEBMASTER.NET, INC. 0100987627 FR

      It lists IWEBMASTER.NET, INC DBA Laptopplaza.com on other websites the business is under IWEBMASTER.net DBA Laptopplaza.com

      I am thinking I will have to make a trip to NJ to find out for myself. Are there any legit wholesale websites similar to laptopplaza.com that accept credit card or paypal? The prices at laptopplaza.com are not great, some are even retail price, BUT others are 200-400$ below retail or ebay.

      Thanks for the info, anyone that has any other info on this business or the (New) Laptop wholesale topic feel free to reply. Most laptop businesses I have seen only deal with refurbished old outdated laptops.

      Hey thanks for the contact info. I am going to call the number on the sign in the google maps image to see who rented the property. I am going to ask if it is still available and if not I will see how much info I can dig up.
      Thank agian

      Ooops we take that back then, IWEBMASTER.NET Inc has been registered for quite some time. We were being overcautious They are a legit business, and have been around for some time (for some reason we assumed iwebmaster.net was their hosting company, but yes it is them, and they have been trading for long).

      You could try Evertek.com -Wholesale Computer Parts, Wholesale Computers, Computer Distributors, Wholesale Electronics as an alternative.

      You are welcome

      PS: beware that laptopplaza is a broker and they do not accept returns.
