ANSWER #1 of 10

If you're looking to purchase something, you could always check out their information and try to actually call them. Usually each website has a "contact us" area, which displays this information. If they don't have a contact page, do a whois on them. [http://funadvice.com/r/3kiou19mg0] That will give you their information.

Last, but not least, if you go google them, google their site with keywords such as "scam", "ripoff", or something even like "sucks". This will usually get you some very good, or bad, reviews.
