    Fraudulent site? 6th Jan 19 at 6:11 PM
    I've found plenty of bargains on the site http://www.bcvn.org.uk which makes me suspicious to whether it's a scam! Any way to find out?

    No address on the website at all, no phone number, just a contact form - so no way to contact them.

    T&C and Privacy pages are all dummy text and site is badly written throughout.

    I wouldn't risk buying from a site like that.

    TBH, it all looks like a load of expensive tat to me.

    For example: priced at 15.05 instead of 75.00, this can be bought from Amazon for 0.86
    Topker Retro Crystal Handle Tea Coffee Spoon Ice Cream Spoon Dessert Ladle Scoop Gold - B07538796F

    And this priced at 15.25 instead of 20.94 can be bought from Amazon for 5.95+1.97 delivery.

    HippoWarehouse What happens at the book club stays at the book club Tote Shopping Gym Beach Bag 42cm x38cm 10 litres - B01HDGF5Z8

    You only need to glance at various sections on the website - FAQ, About us etc - to know it's a shonky website.



    What bargains have you found that you can't source cheaper elsewhere?

    In particular, I was looking to purchase this http://www.bcvn.org.uk/french-farmhouse-wooden-vegetable-store-with-3-large-wicker-drawers-and-potato-store-w35-x-d31-x-h90cm-b00bl0g3hm.html?search=vegetable%20stor

    Ah.
    Amazon had it but it's "currently unavailable" so no idea of what their price was.

    I wouldn't trust bcvn to have it in stock either - even though they say it is...
