They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...

It has come to our attention that a website called LASERSHOP has been using Laserglow's name, product images, logo, and even contact information. They are advertising lasers that do not exist for impossible prices ($280 for a Hercules-3000? I don't think so.)

We have absolutely no relationship with LASERSHOP. We have never heard of them, and they are certainly not affiliated with Laserglow in any way. It's more likely that they are criminals and scammers, so please don't give them a chance to scam you!

I know most of you LPF users are smart enough to figure this out, but the forum is regularly indexed by search engines and I want this to show up if anybody searches for lasershop.su.

Don't get scammed!

As my mum would say, "Deal Lord, come down from heavens and see for yourself!"

It's either a flat out scam, or more likely they are selling cheap knockoffs.

The language seems to be targeted at morons with things like "Did you know 500mW can burn paper!" and "Punches through the atmosphere" and "Theoretically capable of blinding satellites".

Oddly similar to language used by WL actually. Probably just copied over from their site too.

Good catch.

You know... you could probably report it to ICE... they love to take down counterfeit selling websites.

We will be seeing more scammers like this, not less. Reporting them to the forums and authorities must be done asap. AixiZ Lasers has had thier pics copied and used all the time. Always watermark.

+rep from hak for Justin, Thanks for the heads-up.

That's one of the funniest websites I've seen in a while. If you go to the "about us" page there is even an animated picture of their employees smiling at the camera! Wow, that's rich! I'm just sitting at my desk laughing.
