A scam/misrepresentation on Google Shopping

I did a search for some computer components - and often the best price was HP-Sales.co.uk

On visiting the site it had the HP logo and colour scheme - but no price. Even stranger the domain was registered to a house in america.

Basically - the sites are offering the best price - but then its unavailable on the site - but suggests you try their search to source the cheapest supplier.

Somehow I see the result being the one offering the greatest referral fee rather than anything to do with value for money.

Link will help.
Google search link of company's website so that we can report

But there are so many fake prices listed - which then divert you to who is the cheapest so they get the commission on the sale.

However, this is the first time I have seen it done this way - and making the page look like its from HP.
A scam really. They do not even have their company details on the website.

Ask HP if they are linked (which they are not) and they will take action.
