    Replica Oakleys, anyone tried?

    Has anyone here ever ordered Replica Oakleys online before? I just tried to purchase some C-Wires from www.amazing-replicas.com and I've tried 2 Credit Cards already, which I know work, and each time I go to Check Out it says "Sorry, your credit card was declined." which is BS. Every other site I've tried Online uses Paypal and several of their accounts have been removed. I'm wondering if any of you have ever bought replicas and if you were impressed, which website did you purchase them at? (Im asking because alot of the sites I've been to don't seem too elaborate, or professional.)

    EDIT: I've just tried purchasing them from http://www.sportspecs.net and their PayPal account doesn't ship outside of the U.S. , and right on their FAQ they say that they do! OMG, their all amateurs!

    Go to any city and buy them there.

    Or, you could probably find them at a flea market.

    I just bought some at www.hot-shades.com through PayPal for about $32 USD ($48 CDN). This is my first experience paying through PayPal so I hope that it works out and that they don't ripp me off.

    keep an eye on those credit cards.. they may claim it's being denied but then be stealing the #s.. Paranoid? probably, but it just seems a little shady.

    When I read your post, I thought the same thing as cozman.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Yes, I've been very nervous about that as well since they've denied the 2 cards. However, with the place that I actually purchased them at went through PayPal, and I'm pretty sure that PayPal wont do anything wrong. I just hope that the glasses are good quality, and to tell the truth many of these sites have the exact same description of the glasses and what their made of etc..

    edit: Plus, Amazing-Replicas is sponsored by AltaVista, so if their stealing numbers then I'm not the only one at least.

    I don't think so either, but most Replica Oakley sites have that EXACT disclaimer. I thought something might be wrong too, which is probably why they are stuck using PayPal , so all they can do to ripp me off is not send me the product, and if I don't receive it I'll let the credit card company know.
