    Default officialbasketballstore.com - legit?

    Hey I'm just curious if anyone has used this site before. I decided to buy a kyle lowry jersey off that site cause the nba.com store is out of stock. Anyway it was an odd checkout and they didn't give me any shipping details so I'm wondering if I got ripped off. Anyone know if this site is legit?

    Just the name makes it sound unofficial.

    I think you'll receive your jersey from this website, but it's quality will be very bad... next time just use eBay. Easier to spot fuckers + buyer protection is working

    So it's definitely a scam. I got replies from 2 different Hotmail accounts when I emailed them. They said my payment didn't go through and that I should go on the website and pay AGAIN. My bank confirmed the payment went through and they are going to work with me to get the money back... Fuckers.

    That really does suck. The site actually looks very legit.

    Maybe go to Nba.com and use the store there next time?

    Also, anytime a website says "official" in it, you can be pretty sure it's not

    Bummer. Glad the bank is being helpful though.

    That has to suck.... I thought this was just gonna be a bad knockoff website, not a scam. Next time, stay away from sites liek this. Almost 100% of the time, the site is full of terrible knockoffs.

    That site is an exact replica of the nba store, you should beware of those and like others have said, anything that says official.
    Honest Knock-off stores aren't ashamed of who they are, and don't pretend to be the real deal.

    That totally sucks dude. I hope the bank is successful in getting your money back!

    This is definitely a lesson learned for you, and a reminder for the rest of us.

    To celebrate, can I interest you in a Rolex?

    One other suggestion to ensure you dont get scammed or are protected is to use PayPal. They would not have a relationship with a bs company and if there were a money return dispute I believe they get in there to resolve. The other rule is if the merch. is severely underpriced....watch out.
