1st red flag - the price
2nd red flag - send the money via Western Union

I managed to find the company on the internet and of course they are located in Brooklyn, NY. I have the address and phone number. I gave the number a call and they actually answer the phone with the company name.

I sent a second email through the internet site to them asking if I could pickup the kit in person and pay with cash. It will be interesting if they agree to my offer. I'll post again with their response. If it turns out to be a real deal I'll give all the info here.
