Default RoyalCartidge?

Their ad says that they have S&B SR primers for $420 per 10,000. Not too bad of a price these days, if they're not a scam site. I've never dealt with them and was wondering if anybody here has. Fortunately I don't need them (...yet), but at that price it seems almost too good a deal to pass up. Hence some caution may be in order. Their site suggests that they sell guns and ammo throughout the western world, which is also a bit of a red flag to me. Has anyone here dealt with RoyalCartidge? -S2

I never heard of them before, so I did a little online research.

Click on this link: Scam Detector

They claim to be in Texas. Their terms also scare me. A number of States prohibit or severely restrict ammunition purchases and legitimate retailers won’t ship to private individuals there. This is from their website:

Quote:
WE SHIP ALL OVER, AND CUSTOMERS DO NOT REQUIRE ANY PAPER WORK TO GET AN AMMO WITH US. WE ALSO PROVIDE DISCREET SHIPPING. WE TAKE A WIDE VARIETY OF PAYMENT METHODS FOR CLIENTS WHO WISH TO KEEP THEIR IDENTITY DISCREET.
Read that again….
“Customers do not require…”. That should be “Customers are not required to…”
“Paper work..”. Paperwork is one word.
“Get an ammo with us.” Seriously???

That’s the kind of language I’ve come to expect from scammers whose primary language is NOT English.

There’s NO WAY I’d deal with them. If you decide it’s worth the chance, be prepared to kiss your Bitcoins goodbye!

14-DAY RETURN POLICY
It is true we love to buy online, however in the event that a bundle isn’t all around sent or isn’t get in wanted conditions, our framework do ensure a MONEY BACK TRANSFER.


Just reading their Return Policy makes me think they're 'Solid'.....

Agreed, Chad; most likely a scam. Thanks for the Validator link.

Check out their website. It is riddled with improper grammar. I'm convinced the site was assembled by non English speaking people. No address is listed which negates a view from Google Earth.

I’m sure you’re being facetious, but some folks may not pick up on that.

I don’t know any legitimate sellers that will take back ammunition purchases and I believe “Ensure” is a dietary supplement for the geriatric crowd.

If that doesn’t set off red flags and alarms bells, I don’t know what would.

You’re welcome. In this case, I consider “most likely a scam” to be a 99.999% certainty.

Agree it is a scam. Another clue, every one of their "product photos" is a stock image or has a different visible background if one is in the picture.

My friend got ripped off on advertised powder by a place called First Crown Firearms. Sounds like the same folks!

Bless their hearts, those scammers keep trying but they still haven’t learned the English language.

Everyone has pretty much pegged this one but I'll beat the horse a tad bit more.

After viewing that scam detector site (cool site BTW), I looked more closely at royalcartridge.com.

Whois royalcartridge.com
The name was registered 10-15-2020 and expires one year later in the middle of next month.
They only paid for a year of a domain name?
Guess they don't expect to be in business long.

The address listed for the registrant is in Phoenix, Az. but the phone number is in New York? (+1.3478717726)
and was assigned 03/04/2020.
That phone number format is mostly used in Europe.
Please Wait... | Cloudflare

The support number on the website is in Texas where they admonish you:
"Our client support is prepared day in and day out to take care of your nearby issues through our SECURED online talk framework. We would like to have you fulfilled at all levels".

The listed address 5400 Brodie Ln, Austin, TX 78745 is a giant retail shopping mall complex where floor space rental is usually very high $$$.
The building is occupied by Bed Bath & Beyond among others.
Doesn't fit the supposed type of business which would not be out of place in some guy's garage.

I am thinking it really only exists in the minds of some creepy characters.
