We'll never know for sure. That's why I try not to use CC for overseas transactions myself. lol If it weren't for Paypal, I would not buy overseas.
I had to use my cc to buy nic from the US- no Paypal option.
They were hacked not long after, but it didn't affect me.
I'd never buy anything from that site again, even if they accepted Paypal.
It's almost definite that they were selling fake Nautilus coils a couple years ago.
I don't know if it was deliberate, but that's what tipped me into rebuilding, when I still had plenty of coils.
Seems I've been lucky with coils, but I've only bought them from 2 very reputable vendors.
