Scam?

Has anyone tried https://www.outboardmarine.co.uk ?
Look extremely cheap but only take bank transfer.

Thoughts?

Just checked the CNP Awards for best ecommerce, a site for measuring success with Payment service Providers like Pay Pal etc,, not for outboard sales or transactions they were the winner so say.. go onto CNP Website and they are not even mentioned in 2015 as stated on the website

Best E-Commerce Platform/Gateway
Judges Choice Customer Choice
CNP Award Winner Chase

reckon its a scam
