    I'm looking to purchase something from the website located here. But I'm interested in knowing your take on the website, does it seem legit? I normally like using my paypal and am more skeptical of entering my cc information on a website like that.

    From what i can see it looks fine, has phone numbers for contact, uses yahoo checkout, but I'm interested in your advice.

    Thanks alot!

    Wow. Whether that is a legit business or not I wouldn't order from there. What an awful website.

    The fact that they refuse to put their real contact information on the whois seems very suspicious.
