Has anyone used energy-solarcity.co.za ?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

 

has anyone purchased anything from energy-solarcity.co.za. They seem to be having a fire sale - but I can’t tell if they are legit or not. 
 

Sunsyk 5kva battery and inverter for under R50k?
 

* if they are let’s support! If not let’s blacklist the ba$$tards

So many obvious warning signs on that website, don't waste your time or money. 

@Kalahari CruiserThanks for the pointer to this comedy show.  I had a quick look at their website....   I nearly fell of my chair laughing.

Newsletter - Don't worries. We not spam !

I really like their payment policy/Terms & Conditions - they really make sense !   😆🤣
....and Mr Jamie van Wyk has an identical twin called Marius van Zyle....  I can't stop laughing.

...like pay for high value goods at your leisure on receipt of goods, and 'firesale' of generally hot and desirable goods that have supply shortages in SA. Unfortunately too many people get desperate and drop their guard completely - the legit businesses also suffer - personally I treat almost all as a scam or "broken promises portal" unless extensive due diligence and reliable referrals dictate otherwise.

No it is not even that.  If you go and scroll to the bottom of the home-page and click on "payment policy" it takes you to a page called Terms & Conditions and then starts off at:

Our Contract
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Morbi feugiat molestie ex quis finibus. Quisque tincidunt dolor ut convallis lobortis. Proin ullamcorper eros ac ultrices imperdiet.

and it goes on and on in a language Google translate detects as Latin.  And the google translate leads to more laughter.

At least these guys are only trying to earn a few dishonest bucks.  Most Western Governments publish equally pathetic dribble but with consequences much worse than "only" loosing 35K, or whatever.

Look, if these online BARGIN's/Fire Sales/Black Friday Offers/Mother's Day Specials are legit and not scams, then look at what they are showing you and what they are NOT showing on their website.

 

1. If they don't have a REAL location address for you to pickup/pay/collect the goods (reasons like, send items straight-out from suppliers and what-not are just made up non-sense).

2. If you can get the Company Reg Number (if Legit, they will give it to you to check them out. Else, its a scam).

3. If the product information is very basic information (they should at least give out the model numbers, etc.)

4. Do a Google search against that website's name for online disgruntled buyers (Powerforum, HelloPeter and other review sites).

5. As the "old adage goes", if the offer is too good to be true, then it probably is not true.

 

Be wise and wise up.
