Has anyone heard of company????

Overstock Closeout Sale?

They are advertising Concept 2 Rowers model D with PM4 for $700. No phone number for company website looks legit but we all know how that is. Wondering if anyone here has heard of them or bought from them??

No different site. I thought same thing. I found a rower on craigs list locally and emailed them. This website was linked through the return email. The Craigslist ad was a sporting goods store ad. I am super careful with things on the Internet ! Lol no clue why!! Lol

Sounds a little fishy to me too.

Hey Chris,

Yep - just a word of caution. Those prices are well below dealer pricing for the C2 with a PM3 let alone the PM4 [even more $]

When all else fails, you can always call C2 to see if they are an authorized dealer. That way you ensure you are getting the real US Made product and not a knock off/refurbished rower.

Hope that helps...

Thanks, yeah the price shocked me! Thought it was used when I first saw the ad on craigs list. I never thought about calling concept thanks!! I am guessing this place is one of those places that buys in bulk. They have tons of cardio equipment, mostly elliptical machines. Also have children's slide and swing sets. Looks legit but wouldn't be hard at $700 a pop for people that don't check them out. Shipping location says warehouse in Maine.

Re: Has anyone heard of company????

Having seen the same posting on craigslist, I went to the overstock clearance sale website. It looks legit, but I believe this is a scam due to the following:

1) They list a Better Business Bureau rating on the page. However, the BBB site does not list this company.

2) Their Facebook, Twitter, and Linked In links don't lead to an overstock clearance sale page on any site. They simply link to the main page of each site.

3) There is no phone number to call.

4) I went through the order entry process. The only payment option is to pay via a green dot money pack. No other options were available.

These were all the red flags I need to say "no way".

This alone is all you need to know. Any legit business should accept credit cards.

Thanks for the help! The lack of a phone number was my first indication besides the super low price. Thanks for the research!!
