I've found a seller on aliexpress selling 16 310ah cells for less than £300/$400 with free shipping, now I know this has to be a scam. I'm wondering what the scam is? Grade B cells, damaged cells, lower capacity cells or simply just not sending the cells?
I once bought solar panels at a huge discounted price direct from China thru ebay.uk, received tracking number and all looked good until my broken pair of fake designer sunglasses turned up. Never got a refund from PayPal or ebay, the seller deleted their account and set up a new one. This happens a lot

Xxxxstore.. all scam.

New stores, low prices, no reviews, all same name format, all scam.

You will pay, get a false tracking, eventually showing delivered, ali will deny claim (its delivered) while you have nothing.

I have had the same experience with Aliexpress.com. I think the "numbered" stores are owned by aliexpress.com.
Several of the "stores" reply to questions by the same person. How long they can get away with this remains to be seen.
