Anyone ever purchased from SCOOTY CYCLES Inc?

Found this online store that has very low prices but very bad english and doesn't seem professional. Inquired about their bikes via the contact us button and got an e-mail that at first sounded ok and then it got "fishy" again: Bad english, deal too good to be true and they ask for money order or Bank transfer.
Anybody ever bought from them? Here is the webpage: http://scooty-cycles.mybisi.com/

There's a thread running over on another forum site wondering the same thing. I can't believe anyone would even consider them after looking at even the web address, let alone the website, but to send them an email and consider the response at all is beyond comprehension (someone posted one of the emails, another piped up and said he got the same email--yet both dim bulbs still weren't convinced, go figure).

Cant help myself, I've sent them an order for 50 bikes, a mix of Carbondales and Carbon pro's to sustain my flourishing rental business in Sydney. I may require them to send a deposit to free up my funds.
