First, let me give my greatest apologies to all who have been taken and Engine DIY in this scam. The Internet used to be a playground and encyclopedia. I really miss those days. Now it is more like a minefield and we have to watch our step so much, it’s hardly fun anymore. And a place that can offer a business like this, a worldwide customer base has turned into a risky business.

That said, thanks EDIY for taking swift action and working to protect your customers. It’s easy to remain loyal to you when you show that you are loyal to us! 👍💯

Now for business. Most readers here probably already know, but for anyone that might not; here is what you want to do.

a. When you decide you want to order something (and I truly hope you do), take your cursor and mouse over the link you want to follow.
b. Look down at your lower left in the browser window. The link you “would be” clicking on should point to the name and domain of the business’ website. The domain is the *.com part. All links should have -" enginediy.com "- as the last part of the address.
1. It must be that exactly. And be aware that people have been fooled by things as simple as , periods and dashes. ie., – eng.inediy.com or enginediy-.com or even enginediy.xyz (It would seem obvious, but you would be surprised at how many people miss that top-level domain swap). PLEASE NOTE, these are not examples of here at EDIY, but I have seen this trick done on other scams!

c. Lastly: if you are in doubt, ask someone. Go to the website following your bookmarked link and use the contact info to call or email them and ask about the link. Or ask someone you trust. My wife almost clicked on a link to Wells Fargo a few years ago; but something seemed strange and she asked me to take a look at it. Turned out that it was wellsfargo.somethingIcantremember.com. The Wells was there, but as a subdomain. The actual email would have gone to somethingIcantremember.com. In that case, I submitted the email to our ISP so they could follow up.

I hope this is helpful to someone and thanks again to EDIY for working quickly to resolve this, and a very responsible apology to their customers. Now I have to order something else. ❤️️

Yup. I was scammed by the extreme life as well. Looking back I pulled down the address for enginediy and it said extremelife. Suckered by the price. Didn’t lose much. Price to pay to be careful. Hope they got caught.
