    So I ordered a Sky3ds from Yeahgeek last week after reading a few positive reviews. On ordering they redirected me to Loongmarket.com to place payment and I received confirmation followed by a delivery update and tracking number a few days later. I haven't received my item and the tracking number isn't recognised yet (the email did say tracking would only be available after 4-5 days).

    This morning I received a text and call from my bank informing me that they'd blocked a withdrawal of approx. £100 from somewhere in India. No harm done - no funds were taken and I've ordered a new card - but I think yeahgeek/loongmarket are the likely culprits.

    Obviously I can't be sure but this is the only one of my recent purchases that hasn't been with a well known company (amazon etc.). The fact they only accept debit cards not CC or Paypal also raises suspicions.

    Thought it was worth posting a heads up anyway.

    Hello, I was about to order from there :/

    Where did you buy the card from in the end?

    I'm desperately trying to find somewhere reputable to buy from in the UK.

    Thanks
