Does anybody have any dealings with these toy shopping sites? (Inside)

I was looking for Hulk's Helicarrier breakout and at the time I found one of these sites really cheap. Well shipping is almost $10 so that negates the discount, but these sites just seems fishy to me for some reason. No ratings on google shopping. Was just wondering if there were scamming sites out there etc.

    Hi,

    I used to work for one of the largest fashion brands in the world. I investigated counterfeit goods, scams, copyright issues etc. and these websites are identical to scam websites that I have investigated before. As Huw says, there are no contact details and if you go to the part that says "about us" on the party headquarters one you will find it is written in English that looks as though it has been through Google translator or bits have been copied and pasted from other sites. Also the layout of all three websites are the same. I would wager because they've all been set up by the same person(s).

    There is nothing about these sites that would inspire confidence in me to order from them - everything about them looks very suspicious.

    I totally agree with Huw..... avoid, avoid, avoid.

    Bob.
