Hello,

I've been desperately seeking an affordable FCG rig. I searched and searched and found this site selling one for just $96. Pretty reasonable!

Haunted Prop Supply Home Page

But looking through their site, some things started to look rather odd. There is no direct way of contacting anyone. Some of the links on the site go nowhere. And since they don't take payment from credit cards, I don't feel comfortable taking any chances.

It's possible that it's a new, small time site run by honest folks that just don't know what they are doing.

Does anybody have any experience with this place? If not, I think I will just steer clear and end up spending more someplace else.

I don't know anything about this place, either, but their price on the 12VDC gearmotor is through the roof at $24.97. Sciplus sells the same item for $7.95. And a Whois lookup comes up "unknown" in every category. Hmmmm...

I would stay as FAR away from that site as possible...look at the home page! Words mis-spelled, no capital letters, picture turned sideways, it must have been designed by a 5 year old! The tombstone pic at the top is a pic they got from google, and yes, no phone numbers, and whois tells nothing. Now why would you want to send money to them anyway?

They dont even look reputable, looks like a kid tried to cash in on the halloween season and probably wont ship your product anyway. Did you realllly need to ask about this company?

Hell even spookyplanet (or maybe this is his sister site) did a better job than this. If ya gonna scam us, at least make pretty pictures that are orginal & Use big impressive lettering.......... :rolleyes:
But then there are a lot of people out there that don't look at the signs of a scam site as we do.....

Well, I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. And at the very least, getting this out there as a scam site might help others. :)

I have since purchased an FCG motor and will be building one myself this year.
