The website reads... UNIDEN BEARCAT BCD996P2 DIGITAL MOBILE TRUNKING SCANNER WITH GPS COMPATIBILITY
$67.38

New scam site to be aware of. Remember if it is too good to be true it probably is. Doubt anyone with half a brain is selling a new BCD 996P2 for less than $70.


For numerous reasons, including being only 6 months old and using a free email service rather than have their own server Cyber Bunkers has recommended to stay away from them.

Do a Google search for 'Cotien.club scam' and you'll see additional links about this site.
Take a look at this result, which, if you scroll down, you'll see several other webpages that are duplicates of Cotien's, except for a different name.

The only differences between this scammer and the ones, from China, a few months back, is that this one "supposedly" is based in Nebraska, not China, and they are "offering" a 996P2 instead of an SDS series scanner.

Also interesting is that none of the 'product categories' along the top of their page are ones that you'd expect to find a scanner.

Looks like a dropshipping website with a bunch of random crap imported from aliexpress, dhgate, etc.

Like mentioned, its weird that they have a scanner included since the focus seems to be on generic stuff like kids toys and stationery. I can't seem to find the scanner from navigating from the home page either, which is weird.

I opted for the Happy Bear Wooden Stacker Toy since it's $10 cheaper..

And, when you look at that item, among the "related products" are batteries for a GPS, a car mounted GPS, and a pre-paid SIM card.
