Older pictures at this location:Other domain names used:
- HotBuysElectronics.com was their original domain name back in 2002. The original location was 545 Broadway [picture taken on a Sunday]. For returns they used 12 Boerum St, which is the back entrance to 545 Broadway. Sign has something to do with girls. See Scott’s Timeline of his experience with this dealer.
- L and T Electronics, landtelectronics.com at 180 Division Avenue, South Williamsburg. Address was on web site. When the site was new, in the code for the policies page was Hot Buys Electronics. The white sign on the building’s front is for a kitchen on the basement level. When biking by in Jan 2008 I found that the wall fan behind the fellow has been replaced with a large duct going up the front of the building (where the fire escape and windows aren’t).
- Myrtle Electronics, MyrtleElectronics.com at 145 Middleton St, which isn’t too far from here. Address found in whois record. Plus the phone number in the whois reversed to Hot Buys at this address. And see connection at ResellerRatings page.
- Lorimer Electronics, LorimerElectronics.com at 119 Lorimer St. It also isn’t too far from here. No address at website. This address from whois. Domain registered 10-May-2009. Phone number in registration does not reverse. They have a page at ResellerRatings. A check of the LorimerElectronics.com web site found it identical to the MyrtleElectronics.com site and very similar to the TaaffePhoto.com site.
- Clinton Hill Electronics, ClintonHillElectronics.com was registered in May 2009. They were connected to here as a phone number buried in the code belonged to Taaffe.
