Scams

Is Favoritemarts.com legit?

A website called favoritemarts is selling a console with thousands of built-in retro games. The console itself seems legit – I looked up lots of reviews and videos of it. But it usually sells for $170+ and this site is selling it for $40. Seems too good to be true. Is it?

  1. Scam.

    The prices are too good to be true, the domain was registered just this year and if you compare the text of any of their content pages to other scam sites you can see this whole site is copy/pasted to scam as many people as possible on a wide variety of “prices too good to be true” items

    For example, compare the text of their “About Payment” page (https://favoritemarts.com/pages/about-payment) to the text of these other scam “About Payment” pages

    (**NOTE**: Some of these links have been shut down already for fraud, but they were all alive and scamming at some point)

  3. The main page literally says “FALSH SALE” in huge letters. You should have stopped right there. 😉

  4. A heads up. I curiously ordered a retro console from them which advertised 50+ consoles and 100’s of games in a unit with HDMI and USB controllers. I received something with 600 poor quality games (some duplicates) which I wouldn’t pay £5 for. I’ve just emailed them to see what is going on. Unless I’ve missed something this is false advertising and will seek to get a refund from PayPal. It was worth a try but should have known better.

  5. I’ve just raised a claim with PayPal as the responses were inadequate, rather like the console itself! I will copy paste the messages when the dispute has been decided upon.

  6. I also fell for this, the list of consoles and games would have been a retro gamers heaven!! I paid AU$76.93 or something to favouritemarts.. but the confirmation email came up as “gadgets group” so the red flag came out !! Called the bank immediately and blocked the card! I think I was paying for a low quality device ( I also bought one the same from wish.com legitimately I bought something similar from them which unfortunately did not live up to expectations 😢) so watch out for “gadgets group” too guys
