This is how the website www.perpip.com looks:
Copy of the spam e-mails that I have received that took me to the website perpip.com:
- Hi ,guys I find a really good website uruzi.com , it mainly sells electronic products, the products are directly from the producer, thus the price is pretty low and it has high reputation.
- Hi , friends I bought some very good electronic products on this website yunua.com , its products are really cheap and good , you can have a look and choose what you like.

The website only offers 2 types of payment:
It is impossible for you to get back your money when you make payments to anyone of the payment types listed above. Unlike your credit card, you can call your bank and cancel the transaction.
This website (perpip.com) was registered on July 29, 2012, which is eight months ago and expires in four months. Newly registered domain names should not be easily trusted especially if they are registered only for one year.
Legitimate companies do not register their domain names for one year. One year is the mininum registration period for a domain name and scammers usually register domain names for this minimum period because they know their fraudulent schemes will be noticed and their websites taken down by then.

Here is someone sharing his/her experience with this website (perpip.com) from Web of Trust website:
Fraudulent electronics or high price items store in China.
Keep in mind that brand electronics are usually more expensive in China due to VAT. If you see low price brand items you will get scammed.
The way it works is:
1. You send the money (usually via Western Union)
2. You get informed there is problem (usually customs etc.)
3. Problem can be fixed for more money (another 10-20%)
4. After payment, there is yet another problem...
This will repeat until you realize that you got scammed.
Or for phones you get 'lookalikes' of iPhone or Nokia models of poor quality with far less functions."
I recommend that you shop online at popular websites and avoid new websites until you are able to verify that they are trustworthy.
