From your discription, I'd agree
Beware. The old adage still applies. If something seems too good to be true......
I just tried to email them to ask some questions, and their email address (email@example.com) and I got back a delivery failure notice. Does anyone know an organization I can report this website to? I have no idea where I would go to do that. Thanks.
Since they want you to 'wire" money
And I have read about the FBI bringing "wire fraud" charges.
Contact the FBI?

Yeah...something funny going around here
and me thinks not just with the noted site.
Thank you all for posting. I placed an order this morning on this website and was sent an email stating to wire the money via western union to a person in Rome, Italy. Their website shows paypal and Visa/Mastercard logos, so a red flag went. I immediately googled the company and searched to see if they were reputable, but at the time no one had posted anything, so I ALMOST took a chance. I decided to email them back to as why paypal wasn't available, and my emails were sent back "non-deliverable". I tried two differents email addresses for them and all of them were sent back. Did this company just go online today? Also, when I googled them, their name came up on a list of "domain names for sale". Really strange. Bumbed though. They do have "unbelievable" prices. lol
From the initial information you provided
....... a whole bunch of red flags were raised. You saw them, and thus wrote "Beware!" in caps in your subject line.
IMO, it would have been wiser to not have respond to the email address they provided.
I don't know how you initially found the site. whether via an email, via a search for bargain prices, etc.
In the future, please do not include email address and URL's. The name of an iffy site is enough.
I recommend you buy only from sites that do not advertise prices that, as was said earlier, are "too good to be true".
You are aware that all Europe is PAL as a zone
and is not compatible with NTSC and will not function here unless all of your peripherals are also PAL or Multisystem. You will have to run them all on Transformers which run up significant bills, and god help you if you have service problems.
