Any one ever buy from "outboardmotortrade.com"

I am close to buying an FC470 and am shopping for a motor for it. I found a great deal on a Johnson 55hp Dura Jet but its on this site that feels strange to me. When the hairs on the back of my neck raise I tend to listen but if someone has done business here before and has good feedback please let me know!

You know they are in Indonesia right? Do you fancy pursuing someone in a foreign jurisdiction who speaks a different language if something goes wrong?

Yeah, I saw that and it was my second concern. My main concern was if they were a legit business to start with and not a scam.

Payment only by wire transfer. I reckon it's a scam site.

Maybe just coincidence (but I doubt it) a search on google finds exactly the same adds with the same photos and text with the items at twice the price from a different seller.
eg Capitol Marine Transmissions / Gearboxes HE11200 | eBay

And even if they are legit you'll also be liable for any import duties, tax etc:
"Import duties, taxes and brokerage charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyers responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to order/buying."
