    Well I would never trust a "product name" to have a proper and safe store front. :P

    No, they wouldn't go through the trouble of replacing the sites' content, even for a simple "Site closed." message. If that were the case, you'd be getting errors from your browser.

    It's certainly not super secure when you receive you login email with the password in plain text. But that's a story for another day.

    Well if I was scamming I wouldn't go to that trouble either... I'd leave the site up and take in more money!

    I can assure you that this is not a cache problem.
    To start, devices that never accessed the site can still access the site from my end.
    Second, the paypal payment went as purchase, not as transfer for friends or family.
    The e-mail from the paypal account seems to be connected to other sites that also sell these kind of devices, I checked the e-mail before payment, that's why I went with it.
    Infact, it seems the e-mail as been around for quite a while.
    So, in paypal end, no worries, it is treated as a purchase, if no item received, you have 180 days to make a case.
    As for the website, it must be country blockages due to multiple domains.
    No reason to flip out: 1st) you're 100% protected by paypal and 2nd) internet is an un-stable thing in these kind of things.
    So chill. =)

    Ordered via stargate3ds.online which is still online.

    For now, no reason for me to worry, I paid through PayPal and even if the website name looks shady (Using the name of a product with an uncommon TLD ...) it seems like those websites are just frontends for another, bigger Chinese website

    Probably, because as mentioned before, Czech website just poped up, which is wierd, because nobody knows about Czech Republic :D /s
    Also translation is trash (google translate probably)

    Really strange, that also goes "Site closed." on me. I don't know what to think anymore.

    Visited the sites for the first time. Can confirm that it says 'Site Closed', for me.

    If you type "nslookup stargate3ds.online" in a Windows command line (cmd.exe), what is the IP of the site that you see ?

    For me I see this:

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: stargate3ds.online
    Addresses: 2400:cb00:2048:1::681f:4cb4
    2400:cb00:2048:1::681f:4db4
    104.31.76.180
    104.31.77.180

    Maybe it is just a DNS issue. (hence why people who already visited it still have the old IP in their DNS cache ...)

    This is why I wait for an actual release before purchasing...just because it shows up on the Xecuter site as a legit seller doesn't mean crap. Pre-orders from a new place is just to sketchy and click bait in my opinion due to how popular this will be. Team Xecuter doesn't really check these sites for their legitimacy. They just list sites who have purchased their product and the site they reference to be selling from ( or at least I think they do). Me...I gonna wait for modchipcentral to hopefully come in stock with the pro since I have done business with them many times and not any of these new sites. To many crooked people in the world today to trust something I don't know personally just because I am impatient. I worked hard for my money.

    RESPECT!!!

    Same as yours, just with the IPv6 addresses swapped.

    Be careful, the Brazilian one is charging in euro (€39.99), which is considerably more than what they are showing as the final price (even with shipping) in BRL.

    Not a single bit scared, ordered from http://Stargate3DS.Online/ and the website is working like a charm.
    Also listed on official french reseller.


    And PayPal anyways.
