Howdy willie6666-ga,

There is no appearance of any legitimacy to "Media Technology Co. Ltd." in
Oak Park, Michigan.

Let us examine the information provided on EC Plaza.  Please note that the
entry there was "Created by the 'Home Page Generator' A free service of EC
PLAZA," so it appears that pretty much anyone can come along and make an
entry such as this on EC Plaza.

Media Technology Co., Ltd.
1101 Lake Street
Oak Park, Michigan
United States 48237
Tel : 1-313-408-7700
Fax : 1-313-408-7700

A check on the United States Postal Service website indicates that 1101 Lake
Street is not a valid address in Oak Park, Michigan.

"The address was not found. Please check the address below.
You may want to utilize the Yellow Pages and/or White Pages below."

This last part is a good idea!  A check of various "Yellow Pages" does not
show any entries for "Media Technology Co., Ltd."

The area code provided is for the Detroit, Michigan area and not Oak Park,
Michigan, which has the area code of 248.

A reverse lookup for the phone number provided does not yield the expected
results of a listing for Media Technology.

One would think that a U.S. company that was allegedly "established in 1998,"
has over 100 employees and capital assets of over $1,000,000 could afford
a website of their own, an address that actually existed, and a listed phone

Nope, the "Media Technology Co. Ltd." in question is not legitimate.

Please note there is a legitimate company of a similar name, that of "Digital
Media Technology Co. Ltd." but they are located in PR China.

If you need any clarification, please feel free to ask.

Search strategy: Checked the resources as noted above.

Looking Forward, denco-ga - Google Answers Researcher

This whole thing just smells to high heaven! 

They've got more than a million in annual revenue, but their name
doesn't get a hit in Google???
MI OR Michigan "Media Technology Co., Ltd" -"Digital Media Technology Co., Ltd" 

The company's chosen business portal is located in Korea: 

Queried Domain Information as follows 
Domain Name : 
Name : EC Plaza Network Inc. 
Email : 
Address : 1F, Shinho Villart, 452-3 Sungnae2dong, Kangdong ku Seoul, Korea 
Zipcode :

And notice the *highly* interesting results that come up when you Google 

"P.O. Box 47429" OR "PO Box 47429" 

It's 10-foot pole time...
