SL Scam - VirtualGet.Net

There is a site with item listings apparently harvested from XStreet that is a full out scam. None of us have listed our items there. The word I got is that they're phishing for credit card info. I can assure you that no item will be delivered to you - they don't have the items. They just have the text etc. from the XStreet listings. Don't try to buy anything on this site!

While it might be a good idea to give xStreet some competition (if it really is not a scam), these people have really made a bad start for themselves by lifting content from that site.

And topping it all; now they apologize to the content creators on their page, but have not removed the stolen text and images. How are they to be trusted in the future if they start off with this sort of attitudes? Really, you have to trust these kinds of shop because in effect you give them access to sell copies of all your content, outside of your control, as long as the content resides inside the magic box.

If it was legitimate it was very amateurish. But I'll need a lot of convincing to believe it was legitimate. :)
