Is this too good to be true?

I just bought a Biktrix Juggernaut Ultra 1000 for 1/2 price. I found this place online and they are having a 50% of sale only today (4/11/2020). I hoped I just didn't get scammed.

Hopefully you used a credit card. I just looked at that site and they're showing the Ancheer bike I purchased for $600 at $294 w/ free shipping. No way that can be right, and the battery specs are all wrong. Mine has a 36V 8AH battery, but they are showing it as a 12.5AH/8AH and there is no such thing.

I use AMEX for all online transactions. They have come to bat a few times with some scretchy transactions. I might need them again for this one.

Best case they use someone else's stolen credit card to drop ship you a bike from Biktrix or another merchant while working on a long con. More likely you (or AMEX) will be the victim.

I once ordered something super cheap on eCrater. When I got the item I noticed it was drop shipped and they had purchased at full price from an online retailer, most likely with a stolen credit card. I immediately informed eCrater and my credit card was refunded. I fully expected the online retailer to contact me asking for the item to be returned but nothing ever happened and I basically got the item for free. It was definitely some sort of con as the merchant disappeared soon thereafter, and guessing it's easier for the retailer to just write it off.

Their return policy:
(Link Removed - No Longer Exists)

I don't see any bike shop or bicycle warehouse on following address 🤔
"We only replace items if they are defective or damaged. If you need to exchange it for the same item, send us an email at sales@sportssy.com and send your item to: 13785 RESEARCH BLVD., SUITE 125, Austin TX 78750, United States. "

Why are they putting return policy on DVDs, video games and cassette tape?? o_O
This almost looks like they copied and pasted from other website.
"There are certain situations where only partial refunds are granted (if applicable)
- Book with obvious signs of use
- CD, DVD, VHS tape, software, video game, cassette tape, or vinyl record that has been opened
- Any item not in its original condition, is damaged or missing parts for reasons not due to our error

- Any item that is returned more than 30 days after delivery "

Even crooks know about the stimulus checks everyone is getting! Hope its a real deal but that site looks sketchy.

Their links to social media sites go to the sign-in page and not to their own page. If they are scammers, they did a pretty good job on the website. English is also correct. Their list of bikes and brands is pretty long though. 🤔

Contact Roshan at Biktrix he will get back to very quickly.
I'm pretty sure Biktrix doesn't distribute to other retailers. They are a direct to consumer seller.

Hate to say it but I bet the only way you have a chance at getting this bike is as others have said, they drop ship it using a stolen card.
Good luck!

Definitely scam! Good luck! When it's too good to be true, it usually is.

I would call the CC company right away and file a chargeback. Also ask them to go through all your new transactions. Then ask them to issue you a new card. These guys could have gotten all your info and used your card to order stuff for themselves.
