Afterword – Starscope Monocular Scam
Is the Scarscope Monocular a scam? One thing is for sure, ThinkNix is not a California-registered company. The website utilizes a PostalAnnex address to make itself look legit. The 22% 1-star Amazon customer reviews claimed the Starscope did not work. Several customers referred to the product as “junk.”
There is not enough evidence to determine if this is a real scam. But, there is enough evidence to safely say it is an overpriced Chinese Alibaba look-a-look. You can get the same EXACT scope on Alibaba for a small fraction ($6) of the ThinkNix price of $47.99.
Buy the Alibaba version and save more than $40. According to the Amazon reviews, the Starscope could not possibly be worth more than a few bucks.
