MCBer's beware!

This brand of speakers is one commonly used in the "white van speaker scam": White van speaker scam - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

See also: Fraud and Scam Sightings & Locations - California - SCAM SHIELD - An organization protecting citizens against scams and fraud schemes through advocacy and information

The website that is set up for these speakers is entirely fake, and the "$2,495" MSRP is entirely fake as well.

Quote from the Wikipedia page:
White van speakers and home theater systems are now commonly found online, primarily on Craigslist, Kijiji and eBay, these deals are common with projectors, specifically SONY 2K hd projectors and other electronics.Speakers, and projectors, etc are popular scams because they are not tested very easily, and you might mistake very low quality for good quality, for the price, they are also not easily tested. This way they fool a person of getting a deal at a fraction of the price, and they end up getting low quality knock off brands. prompting revealing reviews showing these speakers or electronics to be outclassed by even inexpensive "home theatre in a box" systems sold by legitimate manufacturers.
One online technique used on Craigslist is for the seller to post ads for the speakers for the "retail price" printed on their boxes, which is often in the thousands of dollars. Any box of speakers with an MSRP printed on it should be considered a counterfeit. Then the seller will post another ad with different wording at a "deal" price, a fraction of the original price. Both ads will have links to the phony speaker brand's web site. The higher priced advertisement is meant to fool any prospective buyer into thinking that they have done their due diligence. In addition to the phony prices, other common verbiage includes: "my loss is your gain", "received as a gift", "won it at a raffle or company award", "I am an audio installer", "having a baby", "need to pay rent or a fine", "already have one don't need 2", "moving out of town", "great buy!", "need to sell fast" and "still in the box." A more recent development in ad postings are self-perpetuating scams—those claiming to be victims of the scam, when exposed, say they are trying to recoup some of their loss.
