Hey Everyone, I just had an unpleasant experience with a company called phat parts outlet. I didn't want to put the correct URL in here, as someone would click on it and get creamed,
Anyway I ordered an XP35 Ultra Glove Box unit from this site, it's a nice looking lockable unit, that attaches to the windshield bolts, anyway, Paid with paypal using a new option of not paying until item is delivered, well two weeks after ordering, Paypal got my money, and no delivery, Ok I'll wait a few days to see what's up.
Still nothing on my door step two weeks past the delivery date, went to the site to see what's up, find a contact to check on the order, and got hit with a very nasty fake Malware/trojon/virus, (your computer appears to have a major hard drive failure ) a type of very nasty malware killed my computer faster than you can say OH Shi%. Ok, me being an IT type, I attempted to fix my laptop, no good, googled the symptoms and found dozens of fixes but no luck, so I rebuilt the machine from a company supplied custom image DVD that comes with our HP laptops, so far so good, I have everything backed up anyway, including my favorites, Got everything fairly well back to normal, did a carefull search via google about this web site, now here two weeks later the site shows a warning, this site will cause serious damage to your computer. Ok, I filed a dispute with paypal, now waiting on something from them, I don't know if it's a scam type site, or if some competition has attacked this site. So beware people. I'm an IT heavy, and it got me, this sucker is one of the worst I have seen.
I do believe I'd volunteer to shoot the jerk who wrote that malware package..Bring the little clown to me please.
PS. I doubt a company would do this to their own site, so the company may be faultless, and suffering also. I'll keep positive on this and hope the site owner/company will get some IT help to clean up the site, forums like ours could, and have caused hardship for some of the deserving bad apple companies out there, there's lots of competition in the aftermarket business. I do want the item I ordered. And I'll keep everyone updated. Good or bad.
