I'm sure it is scam. Prices are pure fantasy, when you check out there is no encryption, and they present you something like this:

Order Complete

Subtotal:$1900.00
Postage Total:$0.00
Total:$1900.00
We have received your order, you will be contacted regarding payment shortly.

Stay away from sites like these, don't even give them your real information

Looks like a total scam to me.... Or they will contact you trying to sell you 5 more things you don't need, and if you don't want to buy those, they will tell you a day after they don't have the camera....
1D X - 5D MKIII - 7D - 24 f1.4L - 8-15 L - 50 1.2L - 85 1.2L - 15 2.8 - 16-35 2.8L - 24-105 4.0L - 70-200 2.8 LII - 24 TSE - 45 TSE - 90 TSE - MPE 65 - 180 f3.5L - 100 2.8L II - 580EX and a few Einsteins.

Interesting or odd (or something) that they have three different prices for the Nikon D7000.

When you see $1999 for new Canon 5D III - STAY AWAY. You can't even buy a refurb body at that price. Don't waste your time.
Body: 5D III(x2) -- A7r
Zoom: 16-35L II -- 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 50L -- 85L II -- 135L -- 400L f2.8 IS II -- Zeiss FE 55mm f1.8

I hate that I even clicked on the website-I can't imagine giving them personal info and $$$.  I do love the google address though, quite some store front!  You'd think the guy would have at least picked a shopping center/mall or post box & called it a "suite".  But I can't imagine giving out your home address when you're going to run a scam on a bunch of folks.  You think some poor schlub lives there & he's going to have a parade of people showing up wanting to exact a few hundred pounds (or $$$) of payment from his hide??  Or if its a rental, I feel bad for the next few people that live there...

Well, that address is for the web site registration. On the web page, the address is in the UK, and is located in an industrial park when you look in google street view....  but with the web registration in a totally different place....

They certainly appreciate all of you linking the website URL and clicking the link.  That's how Google and others determine the ranking.

I've removed the URL and locked the topic to prevent more free advertising.
