    Seems to be: http://www.crowdfundingpr.org/counte...w-winter-line/ (From 2014 but the link takes you to the site you posted)

    They're not using HHTPS though, so I wouldn't entering any credit card details unless you're directed to a secure page first.

    Aye wooster, exactly what I thought noticing the insecure page, I sent them a message this morning at about half 7 ish asking about delivering to the UK and costs for delivery to see if I got a sensible reply. I got this at 8.22 am

    Re: Website Inquiry from www.counterfitculture.com
    Hello, sorry for late replying, you can enjoy free shipping and tariff if your payment excess 80 eur, and thanks for asking!
    From - emily@europe-promotion.com

    Seems strange as they are supposed to be in california so it would have been after midnight! though the email addy suggests europe. I did google them and the email addy but no horror storys, seems too good to be true

    Maybe they employ offshore support in different regions.
    Shipping from the USA might attract an import duty though (it's happened to me), so that might knock the price up.

    If you bought something at £150 you'd add Duty + VAT at 22.5% = £183.75 (I think)

    As dodgy as del and rodney https://www.scamadviser.com/check-we...fitculture.com NO SSL on the payments page so I asked them why, I got this below which I think was cut and paste from the blurb after their broken english reply earlier, it was in a different size and font.

    "Our website is 100% secure. The website is provided with an SSL encryption system to protect personal and payment data."

    It was'nt secure, is there anyone you can report sites like this to? A complete waste of time.

    Nice one.

    That lack of HTTPS on the front page was a bit of a red flag.
