Default Is this place for real?

Has anyone come across this before? I found this while searching for a crank for my S5. It seems way to good to be true.

looks strange.

No address and suspicious looking. Photos taken from a Korean site ( source )

MBX 6 for 99.99 ?

I don't think this place is safe to shop.

I think they must be installing new software or testing with some dummy data, I wouldn't try to buy right now.
