    I preordered the SX OS Pro from this link on the Team Xecutor list of resellers site. When I clicked the link the first thing i noticed was that the link changed from that one to dsflashcart without the dash in the middle. First red flag i didnt notice till after the "sale" . I immediately sent an email to the pages "contact us" email but receieved no response. Second rad flag was the credit card payment section wasnt SSL/encrypted as is usually the case. I began to worry ( my fault I know). My account page for them does still state I made the order and says Payment success and gave me an order number. I talso noticed the link I originally clicked on Team X's site( which is still there ) is the only one in the list that sends me to a page saying "sorry, the product was not found" Anyone order from them or have a similar experiences?

    Will be a Chinese person using a very shady Chinese based payment provider who has just harvested your card number.

    Expect to see lots of random charges added at a later date

    Lol. Information is all over the place with some people satisfied and others not so much. And those are from a few years ago... WEll, I guess I'll have to find out the hard way. :\

    That seems odd, but if they were on the official list of resellers... I've no idea. Good luck with that.

    Well, I hope not, because that link was the one that said it shipped from California in Compton which I chose because Im in Cali. But if bad goes to worse I'll just have my bank issue me a new card.

    UPDATE: well looks like bad news. After weeks of trying to reach them by email, thier site has gone down and still havent received any confirmation. Only my money was taken over an unencrypted connection and thats that I guess... :( Time to call my bank. Thanks team xecutor for putting their site on your list of places to buy...

    So in the interest of clarity, yes, the site was only down for me and the networks that I used to access their site. Thanks to jakkals bitch ass for helping troubleshoot that issue. :)

    I too have purchased from them. Check my post history for details. They have been very good with contacting me back. We've exchanged about 20 or so messages back and fourth. Seems legit so far. Didn't at first. We shall see.

    Whew, I sincerely hope so :) I guess I just started bugging out when I noticed they didn't use SSL on their payment page where I stupidly? enetered my card information. Sure enough today, shortly after my network lost the ability to browse to their site, I had a charge from some background check company I certainly hadn't used from yesterday. So, coincidence? Possibly, but I already freaked out and called my bank and explained and they gave me my monies back for both things.

    Well, just an update I thought I'd thrown in to try to not let it happen to anyone else. So, after running my card information over an unencrypted system, charging me a higher amount than stated, ignoring any email communication, and still not having gotten a confirmation email for the order itself on the day of "sale", and had a transaction on my card that I didn't make to a background checking company (I'm assuming to get personal information on me with my own money) I have since changed bank cards and challenged the transactions through my bank ( which they were happy to do and give me credit for the money until it is resolved). The update is that now I've received a few email prompts suggesting that I have attempted to reset my password on a few sites that would have personal information on me. Thankfully I use a password manager and 2-factor auth on most things... So, anyway, be safe out there :)
