Default gintinghobbies.com legit?

Hi just wanted to check with you Indonesians if anyone got off anything from http://gintinghobbies.com? I'm interested in the Baja Flux but unfortunately HPI do not make them anymore due to the lack of good sales I suppose. I notice a couple of stores in Australia carrying them but exchange rates are a pain.

I notice this site carrying the Baja Flux but scam advisor stated that its 69% safe and that its a relatively new site there for the lower rating. I can't seem to find a thread that list down Indonesia online RC stores. Can someone please advice.

I'm based in Singapore and we only have the gas versions which I'm not interested cause of maintenance and break ins.

Thank you.

It seems legit.
There are a few ways to check if a website is legit. First off, check to see if they have an SSL encryption. The way to do this is to type in https instead of http when typing in the address URL in the web browser. Next, do a Google search for their website name and see if any weird listings come up. See what others have to say about them.

1) Lookup the domain name Whois information, using one of the many lookup sites:
2) Check the contact us page information, ideally there will be a physical store/warehouse address and a contact phone number, if there's a phone# go ahead and call to get the feel for the operators.

3) Look for an HTTPS encrypted address on the checkout pages where you enter your personal information

ALso To check the website is secure use the site Webutation.net ,you will get more information about the website.Get the "whois" information from http://www.whoisxy.com/ to know the administrative contact,technical contact etc.

If a website is not verified through these means then you do run a risk when dealing with them.
