Looking at this company's website - all seems very proper - 'worldwide export specialists' good reviews and verified secure padlock at the top of the page etc. but noticed it had quite a few spelling errors in parts of the text, however just put this down to rushed work, so went through the ordering process and got to the point of paying with Paypal and it errored 'certificate expired'.

Am I being paranoid (one of the indicators of cloned websites is said to be spelling / grammar errors)? Has anyone used them in the past and found them pukka?

They appear to be based near Dundee.

If you are concerned with buying from an unknown source, you could try this firm, I have bought several bearings from them and can recommend them.
