    PS3 Bargain Price???

    Just been on one of those price comparisson sites and it has pointed me towards a company called:

    http://www.jaksatronic.com

    It is a US based company and they can sell us a UK (PAL) PS3 for 252-00 although a minimum of 3 units is required to be purchased (@ 756-00). That price excludes shipping but even if that is under 100 then they can surely be resold at a decent profit.

    Dont suppose anone has heard of or had dealings with them?

    Never heard of them, but that shouldn't put you off. You will be liable for import duty (which can sometimes be charged on shipping purely based on the way the company does the paperwork)

    http://customs.hmrc.gov.uk/channelsP...HMCE_CL_001454

    Depending on how it is classified you could be charged 14% as well as 17.5% VAT (though I can't remember if it is cumulative).

    All of a sudden you could be talking £330 just to get it here, and that is before shipping.

    I think you'd probably be better off buying a load of Wii's as they are still thin on the ground. a friend of mine bought one a month ago and it had taken him 5 months to find one and the shop he got it from got 5 in stock and they were all gone by 9:30am

    just noticed that it isn't a US based company but they are in Jakarta Indonesia

    Edit: and this website seems to think that it is a scam website http://www.thewholesaleforums.co.uk/...ksatronic.html
