Have you seen this site: https://www.dronesandparts.net/

They only accept bank transfers as payment.
It's a german website only in English.
The site does not really work well in Edge browser.

I think it is a big huge fake webshop trying to lure money out of people.

Just a warning... DJI... you should call the police and get the site taken down.

Thanks for the heads up on that site. Any time a site won't accept credit cards is a huge red flag for me.

They have a nice store front at that address

Street view

Ok, streetview is out of date, so it may look really nice now
They're claiming to be DJI Authorised resellers - https://www.dronesandparts.net/collections/dji-mavic-pro-sale

699 euros for a mavic, tempting - lol

They *might* be legit but we have at least two serious red flags:  They claim to be an authorized dealer but are not and they do not take credit cards. One lesser red-flag pointed out by LaceyBoy, the failure new domain registration.

If you want to be sure, test with Paypal, they will refund you if it's a scam.

But it's probably a scam, no dealer would sell new products at loss

It's surely a scam. If you proceed with an order, it goes until the payment were they say:



Your order on Drones and Parts is complete.

Please Transfer the Amount to:

Include these details Account in Euros (EUR):

NAME: Drones and Parts

IBAN: AT39 12000 10019391662

BIC: BKAUATWWXXX

Bank name UNICREDIT BANK

Do not forget to insert your order reference in the subject of your bank wire.


The information for that IBAN code is:

Bank: UniCredit Bank Austria AG

Schottengasse 6-8 1010 Wien

SEPA Credit Transfer is supported.

SEPA Direct Debit is supported.

B2B is supported.


Which seems odd. How come a shop in Berlin (Germany) has a bank account in Wien (Austria) Well... simple. To make it more difficult to track the owners. Probably they opened the bank account in the name of a homeless or with stole data. As long as somebody transfers money, they will withdraw it, making a refund impossible. As long as they have a credit/debit card they can withdrawn money everywhere, and if they don't feel safe they can use a homeless guy again to go to the atm with their card.

An email has been sent with this information.

Your order will be sent as soon as we receive payment.

If you have questions, comments or concerns, please contact our expert customer support team. .

You don't even have a chance to "test" it with PayPal since they don't take it.

Well, case closed I guess.

But it's important for DJI to know about it, I hope they will do something

Always suspicious when I see obvious misspellings as well.

"Shoping?"

Thanks for the warning. Isn't there scam preventive places in Germany that could help go after them?
