Hi crystalt1,

Based upon the information I gathered, I would strongly advise against
doing any business with Stores Incorporated.

The web site domain ? - is registered to the
following individual:

Registrant Name: THOMAS BESSLER
Contact: Thomas Bessler
Registrant Address: 2412 Petersburg Road
Registrant City: Hebron
Registrant Postal Code: 41048
Registrant Country: US
Created on: 2005-07-19
Expires on: 2006-07-19

You will notice that the address of the domain owner does not at all
match the company's address as stated on the web site.

You will also notice that the domain was created on July of this year
and expires July next year. This is common practice for fake online

The company was only recently registered on, but only as
a free member. As Trade Key states on their web site ? ?This company
is registered as a free member and is not verified or authenticated by Only Silverkey and Goldkey members are authenticated and
verified by third party credit agencies.?

"Prince Gerry" has also posted an entry for Stores Inc. on the business directory providing the same telephone number but
a different email address.

The telephone number actually appears on a few sites that detail
fraudulent nigerian scams:


I then searched the web for the name of the domain owner - ?Thomas
Bessler?. It appears that this individual has another fraudulent site
operational at the moment.

This site was also created and expires on the same day as Stores Incorporated.
