Is this website a scam? I don't think so..

http://www.cnbuynet.com/index.php

They have insane prices.
I have dealt with shops that sell right out of Hong Kong for several years now. A lot of them are fakes, meaning they want you to send them money through western union via direct deposit. Then you have no way of ever seeing your money ever again.
This site has everything that a real site would have, it accepts paypal, it is paypal verified, they ship ems so that means no bs for incoming goods at customs, ect.
I have talked to the guy and he seems to be a little dodgey on the questions and such, but all the sellers are like this for some reason.

Worst comes to worse, I send my money via paypal, and I never hear from him again. I can file a claim with paypal, and wait 2 months to get my refund. Waste of time, and it is possible I might lose the claim, but most likely not, as he will never respond to it.

Prices seem to good to be true, but I have seen prices cut to about 40% on clothing and jewelry items.

Bottom line. Should I go ahead and buy something, see if he's legit and all?
Or no, just waste of time, its fake.


edit- also, this seems like an extremely long amount of time to make such an elaborate website to be a scam..

The site looks interesting, but for mobile stuff where installation is just as important as what you buy, I'd probably skip and pony up the bills for an install place that knows what they are doing.

If it were mp3 players, uxcell.com is another one of these sites that the prices are good, but just remember, they are definitely not iPods.
