    Is it enough that one person has a bad experience to have a site added to the list? No online store is perfect and there will be mistakes.

    I'd suggest to have a certain amount of people mention a site before it is added, or if it is well known to rip off customers.

    Well i added those sites because they tend to scam customers, or they have bad service and bad customer reviews. BTW if anyone has a site they want to remove, ill remove it from the list if it improves or starts getting better service and better ratings.
    I'll verify all customer ratings of sites daily so i'll add the bad sites or remove the old sites on this list.

    for instance bad customer service for www.abc.com

    If you guys know about any really bad experiences with other sites, let me know. I'll research on them to see how reliable they are, then add them [​IMG]

    You could add some screenshot (not too big though) of these sites too.. This thread sure come in handy... keep it up.. and also be open to the comments about the stores because some store might be good for others and others not..

    Before anyone gets any funny ideas from looking at Foundmy's reviews, they are NOT the same store as http://www.vgcrepairs.biz/zen_store/. Aside from price differences, I've ordered multiple Wii parts from them with no problems whatsoever. DO NOT add them to the list.
