Barry, there are enough clues in the thread above that any forum regular should be able to work it out. Its probably unlikely that a non-forum-regular would stumble across the vendor in question.
There is certainly a couple of general points worth considering though:
- look at the location of the company supplying you with any bargain. Will you be able to enforce the law if they take your money and don't deliver, or the goods turn out faulty? e.g. a vendor in the Channel Islands might be problematic in this regards.
- If someone doesn't take some form of credit card (even paypal) then you also need to be wary as it may suggest that the card company knows something you don't. if they do take credit cards is any small "premium" to pay be card worth it for reassurance?
Finally worth bearing in mind that in the world of internet bargains your local chandler where you physically can see the goods and hand over payment may not be a bad deal - once you add on shipping, credit card charges, and possibly even vat/duty from some non-EU places. Certainly our local place is very competitive.
