Hi everybody,
I am looking at buying a T18 gauge one, and I found a lot of them (all different models) on the following site:
https://www.elysannetrem...Neu_d5fomnpmqprrnqr.html

Anybody bought something from them? Is it a genuine site or a scam? Some of their prices seems too good to be true!!!

any ideas?

thanks

Cool

Something is not right, the page you show mentions Modellbau Fisher; but the email address is not correct.

The site you show uses: maerklinhaendler-fischer@web.de

On Modellbau Fisher's homepage, the email address is: modellbahnfachhandel-fischer@t-online.de

https://www.mbs-fischer.de/

Of course he could have several different email addresses.

More strange is the price; if you find the same 55073 on Modellbau Fisher's homepage, the price is 2.400,- Euro,
which is about the double of the 1.199,50$ you've found.................... Crying

On the homepage you found they have 100 in stock, while Modellbau Fisher's homepage shows sold out,
just like on Märklin's own home page: https://www.maerklin.de/...ts/details/article/55073

I wouldn't dare to send my money to "BestShop" - and look carefully,
it actually says: BestShop and then: "your slogan here" below in small letters LOL

Edit: I just found a funny one, this is a one-of-a-kind loco, weathered by "Lars Diehl": https://www.elysannetrem...ehl_d5fnoplmpostrll.html

The exact same loco was sold by "Bimmelbahn" in Germany: https://www.bimmelbahn24...atiniert-von-lars-diehl/

Somehow "BestShop - your slogan here" now has 100 in stock of this unique loco, and selling them for half the price.............. LOL

Per.

Cool

It's a scam.
1. a whois lookup on elysannetremblay.com, reveals it is fairly recently registered from China etc.
2. "contact us" gives a map location in London, the address listed on the page is in America.
3. a google search on their phone number (+15024032992) gives 11,800,000 results. mostly other scam webshops etc.

have seen other similar scam sites earlier with Marklin at very good prices, which also turned out to be scams.

Thank you all,
you just confirm what I thought, the prices, the stock amount and their address has all the ingredients of a scam.
Cheers
