Buying on eStore Limited Representative thru WhatsApp conversation

Hello !
Recently I’m looking to buy IBeLink BM-K1 miners. I found cheap price with availability confirm on Alibaba [Alibaba link](https://app.alibaba.com/dynamiclink?touchId=1600160128017&type=product&schema=enalibaba%3A%2F%2Fdetail%3Fid%3D1600160128017%26ck%3Dshare_detail&ck=share_detail&shareScene=buyer) but the dealer asked me to contact thru WhatsApp phone number. I’ve wrote to him and he answered me with this:

[8.12, 01:21] Bmk1: You will also get 2 units free making 8 units in total .
[8.12, 01:22] Bmk1: e Are A Registered Company, Licensed And Approved By The European Government, For security reasons check the attach file for Our company VAT, TAX & Registration documents to be guarantee you are dealing with the right company and trusted person.

[8.12, 01:51] Bmk1: Payment terms: Bitcoin or Money Gram Transfer for orders less than 3000 usd and TT bank transfer for orders over 3000 usd ”

He also linked me their website:
[link to official website](https://www.estorelimited.com/)

After searching I found out that they have account on Amazon also and Facebook (both almost empty).

They refuse to do the transaction thru websit/Amazon or Alibaba.

After a while I’ve contacted by WhatsApp to number witch is wrote on website to confirm is person claiming as eStore representative legit – he had confirmed that. But I’m still not sure about buying items thru WhatsApp paying 3 000 $ and waiting for shipping (custom and fees including).

  1. If you have not counted the red flags by now, let me give you another one 🚩.

    Don’t buy shady stuff from people through whatsapp.

    Don’t go off the platform, where you have no buyer protection.
