Do you really want to do business with someone who builds a website and runs his illegitimate business on a cell phone and has no address on his website so you cannot find him after he takes advantage of you?
Taking a legal look at Digital Depot Online, their phone number 626-768-0993 is in California. In California, a corporation or limited liability corporation must register with the Secretary of State. This is the link to the Secretary of State site http://kepler.sos.ca.gov/cbs.aspx. I have tried with digital, digitaldepot, and digital-depot. Under corporation and LLC, Digital Depot Online is not registered as a corporation.
If a business is not a corporation, it must file a fictitious business name in the county in which the business is operating. On the website http://www.digitaldepotonline.com/ they have no address but they do have a phone number. Using a reverse lookup, http://www.melissadata.com/lookups/phonelocation.asp?number=626-768-0993 this business is operating in Los Angeles County. The Los Angeles County Fictitious Business Name search is available at http://rrcc.lacounty.gov/Clerk/FBN_Search.cfm. Again, there is no listing for digital, digitaldepot, or digital-depot. Digital Depot Online is not legally doing business in California.
This statement describes the requirement for filing a fictitious business name statement. It is taken from the Los Angeles Registrar-Recorder website at http://rrcc.lacounty.gov/Clerk /Business_Name.cfm. Statement must be filed in county of principal place of business, and may also be filed in other counties as long as the requirements for filing in the county of principal place of business have been met.
In California, we are required by the city in which a business operates to have a business license. Pasadenas business license search is not automated. Their site is at http://www.ci.pasadena.ca.us/Business/#Online%20Business%20Services. You may call them at 626-744-4166 but they require that you must request a business license inquiry by mail or FAX. The FAX number is 626-577-5733 Attn: Business License Inquiry. There is no business license issued to Digital Depot Online by Pasadena.
