Wi-Fi boosters, also known as wireless extenders, are dime-a-dozen on the open market. The most notable brand-names include NetGear, TP-Link, and Linksys. Another brand that is drawing attention as of late is RangeXTD.
The About Us page does not provide any significant details about the website. The Contact Us page does provide the address 68308 G/F Kowloon East Building, 12 Lei Yue Mun Road, Kwung Tong, Hong Kong. The address is definitely not original because it is linked to a broad range of websites, including getplaybeatz.com, advancedliving.com, blauxportableac.com, mobileklean.com, and feverpatrl.com.
Nayzayerz recently reviewed the Blaux Portable AC, which turned out to be a scam. Anything connected to Blaux just does not seem legit. The PayPal username for Blaux is Unipro, which is not a real company but a scam artist preying on American consumers.
Strong Current Enterprises claims to be the owner and operator of the RangeXTD website. A business search via the Company Search Mobile Service (CSMS), an online business search service of the Hong Kong government, did verify the legitimacy of the company.
Strong Current Enterprises is an active private company limited by shares registered in Hong Kong on August 1, 2008. The company’s official website showed a limited selection of products, none of which was the RangeXTD Wi-Fi Extender. It also shows a different address than the one provided on the RangeXTD Contact Us page. This address shows the company located in Wanchai, Hong Kong not Kwung Tong. If the company has multiple locations in Hong Kong, this could explain the different addresses.
Buyrangextd.com was registered on October 14, 2019, to an entity or individual in Panama. The website utilizes the Live Sales Notification plugin, which shows a new customer every few seconds.
Afterword – RangeXTD Scam
The RangeXTD was featured in the SFWeekly, a tabloid newspaper-alternative, on July 24, 2020. But, so was the Buzz B Gone on August 3, 2020. Nayzayerz recently did an article about the not-so authentic bug zapper, which is available via AliExpress, Alibaba, eBay, and Amazon. Scam artists do not know when to quit, they utilize all kinds of resources in an attempt to legitimize their products.
American consumers beware when utilizing SFWeekly as a legitimate news source. It is filled to the brim with false content. If the RangeXTD is a legit Strong Current Enterprises’ product, you think the company would have it displayed on its website.
We went through the process of purchasing the RangeXTD via PayPal and discovered the account is not linked to Strong Current Enterprises but Able Look Online Limited. Do not purchase from any website without conducting thorough research. It is very easy to verify companies all over the world with a little research.
Another point, if Strong Current Enterprises created this website, why would it hide its domain registrant information? The company wouldn’t because it would have no reason to.
Is RangeXTD a scam? Probably!
