I went back to global bigs after not receiving a reply 5 days later to an emailed question. Both the sites look really legit to me. (I supported eCommerce sites for a large multinational for many years) But when i google mapped the address of the globalbigs dot com it doesn’t exist. That has me wondering if I have finally gotten scammed.
I administered our PKI for NA & SA and have purchased EV Certs from Verisign in the past and it was quite a process to get the registrar to allow me to create them. Took lots of proof I wasn’t a fraudster.
Does CF have a similar process that should weed out the fraudsters? I am hoping these sites are legit, but am now almost convinced I got duped. Something I never expected as I am an extremely skeptical IT person. -Bill
OH My, The green lock doesn’t mean very much anymore then. That’s sad for the consumer, anyone can register a domain and then get a green lock cert. I will be waiting to see if the items arrive. Hopefully they will. -Bill
Yep, the padlock only means you connected to a website securely and nobody can eavesdrop on the connection. Now, you can tell if a business has an EV certificate by looking at the padlock’s certificate manually.
Holy Cow, I had not seen that ridiculous price, nor the other stuff that showed up to browse on that page. Now I am positive that I got taken. Geez! What I bought was only about 20% less than what I expected to pay, figured it was a Chinese knockoff but would work for me.
I wonder how long I need to wait before I petition Paypal. -Bill
Oh my, I just found another site doing something similar lukecar.com Seems google pushing both these sites.
