The website does seem to be less than 3 months old.

It also looks like they delete comments from their Facebook page

https://www.facebook.com/SavviBuy/

Not very good customer service either apparently

Doesn't seem to have a real address it's using a virtual one.

I just checked for reviews of SavviBuy on TrustPilot and there's not a single one. Strange. It's rarely that low.

WOT rates ScamAdviser as 'unreliable' with a red sign so I don't know. I find WOT very trustworthy.

Rockman Wasn't using scam advisor to see their opinion on it but they use a common internet tool that brings up the information of the domain registry. It being less than 82 days old and registered to a virtual address should show up red flags straight away. Add to that the deleting of comments from their website and reports of bad customer service with the person not speaking english and it is somewhere i would stay well clear of. Sounds like somebody selling from their garage.

Hi addiosamigo a few members of LD voiced their concerns over SavviBuy for reasons similar to what Dread has mentioned.

We haven't verified either way as to whether or not SavviBuy is a reputable retailer but, as a precaution, we thought we'd listen to our members concerns and remove the deal until we could find out more.

As soon as we find out either way we'll let you know :slight_smile:

its just that the original post said "This is a new retailer but our source has called the store and they have confirmed they have stock" was this not a quote from yourselves? if so is the member who posted this banned as its quite clearly a scam...

Just a quick update: there have been mixed reports this evening as to the authenticity of SavviBuy and whether or not the Hatchimal stock is genuine. Some have reported that as the manufacturers of Hacthimals have allegedly said SavviBuy isn't an authorised reseller means that the stock isn't genuine. However, SavviBuy have updated their page (and doubled their prices!) with a message saying that they have sourced the Hatchimals from third party resellers.

We haven't been able to verify either way as to whether SavviBuy is genuine but, if you do have concerns, we'd recommend you try contacting SavviBuy directly and, if you want to, you should be able to cancel your order. Failing that you could get in contact with your bank but, as I say, there doesn't seem to be anything definitive either way yet as to the authenticity of the shop.

I ordered a PlayStation vr headset from savvy buy 1 week ago. I was shocked to see they had them in stock to emailed to confIrk. they replied saying it was in stock but to choose the standard delivery as they had a huge back order. Phoned the, yesterday to be told it wasn't dispatched yet but I am now very dubious about the site? It's a Christmas gift for my son and had been saving up the money to buy it. Really hope it arrives.

I would avoid buying anything from them! Their website domain was only registered in September 2016. Their company is called AdvanceTec UK Ltd and it does not exist according to the Companies House. Conveniently, they are selling items such as Sony VR, Hatchimal that are in a very high demand before Christmas!
