Site created in 2009 and last updated in May this year but they say "Founded in 2008, Electronic Megastore is headquartered in the United Kingdom, with offices in London and Manchester.

On checking the Internet Archive, it has records of the domain name going back to 2004, but then, it belonged to a company called Benson Electronics based in America selling mostly the same stuff as this new company...

in all fairness the two replies above dont give conclusive evidence that the site is a scam.....

I think if you are really interested in their prices there are ways to do a bit of reserach on them. They provide an address, phone number that you can contact directly and see for yourself if the bad reviews are correct; you can contact Safebuy.org.uk and Mcaffee asking their genuinity; and lastly you can pay using paypal and be protected.

Having said that, I havent use them and cant really tell or recommend them for sure
