If you look up the address on Google Maps and use Street View, this looks the shop. I wouldn't go there after dark. Or without a gaggle of pit bulls.

Even without the research done by @PierM (thanks, interesting at least - been stumbling across Namecheap before already...), the price clearly gives it away.

I mean, how would anyone (even a legit shop) be able to sell you a Helix for noticeably less than the all time lowest street price (from around 3-4 years ago or so) in times when literally every single electronic device is sold for record money? And even if that was still somehow possible, why *would* anyone do so in case the unit would sell like hot cakes for around 500 bucks more already?

thanks guys!  Yes, clearly a scam... although I have found bargain prices before so it can happen.  For example bought the Helix LT open box for 900 dollars open box, and my main Brian May guitar that goes for like 6 grand now for 1200 USD...


Will be more vigilant in the future!
