Legit website?

Hey guys, just wondering what you think of this website?
http://www.thepromdressesstore.co.uk/

they've got some really nice dresses... but they're so cheap, they don't charge for custom sizes or postage, there's no reviews online... and they're facebook, twitter and blog have only been active for a month, with hardly any feedback.

Am I just being suspicious? Or does this seem really dodgy to you as well?

    No, i wouldn't trust it. Some of the grammar is appauling (reminds me of 'My dear i am trapped with $1,500,000 in Nigeria...), there is no contact address, no company registration and you can only pay via paypal.

    Although 'shipping' is a common term, 'postage/packing and delivery' is more common on UK sites and as the prices are all in pounds....

    ETA - They have a gmail address when they have their own domain ??? The dial code is for America (+1) so why a co.uk site. They could have different sites for different countries, but i would of thought 1 site with multi currency would be better.

    I saw a thing on a money scamming programme the other day about prom dress websites. A girl paid a lot of money for a really shoddy dress that was nothing like the picture and had to fight for their money back etc. Go to a real shop, you'll be able to try it on properly before buying and get it altered if necessary.

    I think it was spam that was posted and then deleted.
