GadgetArea.com - SCAM?

I was going to buy a JVC Camcorder from this site, I registered and thought I would look at what payment methods they accept, at the point where you put your card details in they just ask for card number and security code which seems dodgey not asking for card type so I didn't proceed, I also found this info http://www.resellerratings.com/store/Gadget_Area_Electronics, which implies it's a scam.

Has anyone any experience of this site or knows how I can get it shut down?, they are using a greyed out version of the Paypal logo so I wondered if Paypal would be able to get them shut down?
