Me and my friend saw a post on yahoo anwers relating to coolphones here:

So, we tried to place an order for 2 160GB Ipods via AMEX.
We waited for 3 days after the order was placed to enquire about delivery & got the response below:

"Thank you for placing an order during our CoolPhones promotion. We regret to inform you that due to contractual limitations (and an unusually high volume of sales of the new iPod collection), we are unable to process your credit card order. You may change your method of payment. To pay by check or money order, see below. We apologize for any inconvenience."

I truely believe that this is a setup to a SCAM. I've placed many internet orders and have never come across such a message. I'm also aware that it's often scammers who demand payment like this.

I think the previous "answers" indicating a legit company are bogus! also known as


If you placed an order with your credit card with this site then please be sure to cancel the credit card you used and get a new number, just in case these scammers fraudulently try to use your card details in the future.
