To be fair, they state that clearly in their FAQ:The 'scam' is that they are not from the UK. They are Chinese. You could consider that a scam if you order from them as a European and end up paying import taxes since your package comes from China.
4. Where is my order shipped from?
We airmail directly from Hong Kong, China. You are able to enjoy such low prices and even worldwide free shipping because we take advantage of the lower operating costs (in warehousing and logistics) and we bypass the middlemen.
That's why I put scam in quotation marks because it's not really a scam. It's just... well what you said.To be fair, they state that clearly in their FAQ:
They are either a Chinese company that "tries to pass" for a UK one (by using pounds and a .uk domain name), or a European / UK company that uses drop shipping. Neither is illegal. They don't actually claim to do / be anything that they aren't; if you as a customer "expect" that your order will come from a UK address, that's on you and you should have read their FAQ/TOS. But yes, it is misleading of course.
You got two out of those four correct. The look and layout seem to be essentially standard for any web store using Shopify, and last I remembered, it wasn't especially similar to SCS. (This is the crucial thing! If both the "impostor" SCS and the American SCS had vaguely similar layouts to every Shopify web store, does it even make sense to say that the "impostor" SCS was trying to mimic the more well-known one?)copying the look, layout, and name of SCS and with a URL to hide their true location
When someone calls you out, the correct course of action is to check your facts, not to immediately double down. Of course you can double down if you really are right, but you're not and here's why:Keep in mind that the impostor has changed their web site since their debut. The original site was absolutely identical to the SCS site at the time. All four of the reasons I started are correct.
Does the Ghost Jing's Pyraminx turn well?Lefun Ghost Pyraminx, but actually a Ghost Skewb in the shape of a tetrahedron. Notice the presence of the other 4 corners (which don't exist on a regular pyraminx). Ghost Jing's Pyraminx then, if one is to be pedantic.
I hope this functions well; the FangCun Ghost Skewb (Tony Fisher's Golden Cube) didn't have torpedoes on the skewb centers and it popped literally on every solve, which is a lot of headache for a ghost skewb with all the orientation problems.
Also, to whom it may concern, the cube in the post quoted below turned out to be a LimCube Mini 6x6 indeed. 54.6 mm! I believe they have an old 3x3 and 2x2 at exactly this size.
Currently available at HKNowStore, soon at other stores too, I guess. Seems to be made only in stickerless, which honestly kind of sucks. I was hoping for a black-with-stickers to complete a certain sub-collection. Does anyone have experience with dying stickerless plastic into black? Will it be consistent, or am I better off obtaining a force cube (i.e. fully white) and dying that one?
