Well, if they were on the uppity-up, they'd take credit cards or Paypal.  About the only reason online sellers only take wire transfer is because there's no way the money can be taken back from them after it has been sent.

I'd contact their hosting provider, but at this point, it still is speculation that it's a scam.  I'll do it once there is proof, which unfortunately means that someone is going to have to get screwed first.

i've been reading coffeegeek for a few weeks now, but never signed up, until now

i live in indonesia, & even i wouldn't buy from them
simply because i'd rather spend a little bit more and get my peace of mind.
i know if i buy locally i can get good services from the dealers here if there's ever any problem

it also seems very strange if they would sell anything cheap.
espresso machines, grinders, and accessories are expensive here
here are some of the prices of machines i was looking at
NS oscar + grinta grinder pair US$1800
LaSpaziale S1 Vivaldi2 US$3500
La Cimbali Junior DT1 US$3750
Macap M4 grinder US$850
Compak K3 elite US$800
Mazzer mini US$1080

if it were nearby, i'd be happy to actually go there to see the shop/office
but unfortunately it's in a different island

I called La Marzocco about this site as I too was wondering why they could sell for so much cheaper.  The guy I spoke with said they are not an Authorized dealer as they say they are and he has never heard of them. He said he HIGHLY recommends against buying from them.

And...  if there's a warranty from the manufacturer, who cares if the dealer is halfway across the world?

Posted March 9, 2011 link

I've heard at least one sad story about the dealer (rightly!) deciding not to honor the warranty, because it was used outside of the country it was purchased in.  (This particular story involved an electrical connection to about twice the voltage the machine was designed to run at, and a painful rebuild.)

Expect that if you're buying it across an international border, the electrical connections and voltage may need to be adapted, the plumbing fittings don't quite line up, any warranties will not be honored, and you're basically on your own for support.
