Has anyone heard of these guys before? http://www.vggolfclubs.com/ Looking at the prices I am assuming its a dodgy website. Anyone used them or had any contact with them at all?

Yeah, right. Thanks. Where do you get the information on where the domain name is registered?

Lets keep this thread going for all dodgy site questions. With the amount of questions on this topic we should have a sticky thread to collect and disperse all questions.

Useful listing of known Dodgy sites here. Not comprehensive, as a new one pops up every day, but nevertheless a good reference, and it does get updated from time to time; http://fakegolfclubs...10/07/#fakelist

Can we have a list of all the Legit online stores in Australia at the top of the page? Stop all those dopes from asking every time they think a deal is a little too good to be true.

hit it where you can see it.

Haha I was actually referring to the people that ask if places like GCO, Squizzies and Golf Box sell fake gear when everyone knows they are all well reputed Australian stores. Rather than the other way around.

I was going to post this site the other day and then I thought, nah why bother all I will get is lots of "if it's too good to be true" and "spam" replies. But it does look like a nice site that will get a lot of people. Www.golfdisountsshop.com I even know a couple of people who have ordered! They claim that business is so slow in hong kong that these deals are real. I sent Mizuno an email and they replied that the price was below any Mizuno price that an authorised dealer could make money.

All fakes. The site is only a couple of weeks old, there seems to be a new one every day.
