Very cheap site, but may not be legitimate

    I found this site through google product search when looking for a Htc Hero. They offer it new unlocked for $250 ($280 posted to Ireland). This is alot cheaper than anything I've found even used on ebay, so I sent an email to the supplier (response and original email). My question is what do people think about the site, the owner claims it's a registered business and offers the registered business number in their about us page. The thing is the number returns no results at WebCHeck - Select and Access Company Information .

    Another thing is that the site is identical to here. I don't think they are the same company, but think they are using the same frontend and the same supplier (the second companys registered business number checks out btw).

    I don't know whether to buy or not, I really think he is genuine trying to set up a business but is just new to the game, and with prices like that it's hard not to be tempted. If anyone has any experience with either of those sites (or knows anything related) I'd appreciate your advice, it's hard to believe that you could get an iPhone 3gs new unlocked for $270, when they go for twice that on ebay (and thats from the more legitimate looking site).

    Bah just found another 3 sites with similar prices and identical content. To sum up,

    1st site
    2nd site
    3rd site
    4th site

    Seeing this, unless the supplier replys to my last email, I don't think I'll be buying..
