Hrotools.com?

I was looking through Lego on Amazon and noticed some UCS sets listed for $160-168 from hrotools.com in the "product ads from external site" section.  I checked out the site and it says free shipping and accepts PayPal.  Anyone order from this site?  I'm tempted to try it considering the protection from PayPal.  I'm also hoping Amazon will provide some sort of protection because it is advertised on their site.  
Some good deals hey have listed are...
UCS slave $166
UCS Tie fighter $165
Tumbler $162

    The reality is that anyone selling those for less than RRP is involved in something shady. Especially the two newer ones.  Amazon will provide you no protection,  PayPal probably will,  but you'll have the headache with getting it all done with them.  

    We all want discounts. It is likely to be some drop ship scam where they take your money and use someone else's card to ship you the product.

    Appreciate the input.  I guess, like they say, if it sounds too good...

    Their domain name was registered 4 months ago, using a private registration service. This means they don't want you to know who they are.

    The About Us page doesn't actually say anything about the company and only has a PO BOX address (which might not even be theirs).

    The Contact Us page is just a web form.

    Login credentials go over an unencrypted HTTP connection.

    The only payment option is PayPal, even though it shows the Visa, MasterCard and Amex logos at the bottom of every page.

    I'm sure it's fine :D
