website with prices that are too good?

The selection is excellent, but there is nothing on the site about who or where they are; and the prices are so low (2xKenda k35 for $12!) that I'm suspicious.

As well, I was google searching for the Park MT-1, an entry popped up claiming to be from "allergycanada.com"; when I clicked the link I got the site above. https://allergy.com brings up a *completely* different site, dealing with allergy, not multi-tools.

What does the panel think?

Ok, now I'm really suspicious. I posted the link in my original post, and when I looked at the post there was a bunch of hyperlinked text that *I* did not type.

The site is
www
dot
ciidcise
dot
com

Whois gives a slightly incorrect address: 2139 Monroe Ave (there's no Ave, there is a St., zipcode matches). in Fort Meyers Fla that looks like it might be an undeveloped lot.

I'm thinking I need a coffee and I won't be worried about things I can't do, things I can't see or things I can't change... Not unusual for the world wide web to have spurious web links. Sometimes it's done with malevolence, sometimes bad web coding, sometimes it's a marketing ploy to increase vistor number counts and sometimes pure ignorance...nothing to lose sleep over.

Caveat emptor..."let the buyer beware."

I bought some super cheap NOS tires online once. They arrived quickly and were the brand and model described and had obviously never been mounted. Mounted the first one up, aired it up and hundreds of little age cracks reared their ugly little "voids". Kenda K35's for $12 each is one thing but a pair for $12? What were shipping charges? The new owners of NASHBAR started offering decent tire prices again but OMG the shipping!!!! You are very wise to be suspicious. If it sounds too good to be true 99.9999% of the time it is.
